Absorption spectrum: spectrum of electromagnetic radiation absorbed by matter when radiation of all frequencies is passed through it. Acceleration: change in velocity divided by time interval over which it occurred. Accuracy: closeness of a measurement to the standard value of that quantity. Achromatic lens: lens for which all light colors have the same focal length. Action-reaction forces: pair of forces involved in an interaction that are equal in magnitude and opposition in direction. Activity: number of decays per second of a radioactive substance. Adhesion: force of attraction between two unlike materials. Air resistance: force of air on objects moving through it. Alpha decay: process in which a nucleus emits an alpha particle. Alpha particle: positively- charged particles consisting of two protons and two neutrons emitted by radioactive materials. Ammeter: device to measure electrical current. Amorphous solid: solids that have no long- range order; no crystal structure. Ampere: unit of electric current; one ampere is the flow of one coulomb of charge per second. Amplitude: in any periodic motion, the maximum displacement from equilibrium.
