Synonyms for law of nature in the sense of this definition

(law of nature is a kind of ...) an abstract or general idea inferred or derived from specific instances

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (physics) a law governing the relations between states of energy in a closed system

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (chemistry) the law that states the following principle: the rate of a chemical reaction is directly proportional to the molecular concentrations of the reacting substances

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (chemistry) law stating that when two elements can combine to form more than one compound the amounts of one of them that combines with a fixed amount of the other will exhibit a simple multiple relation

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (physics) the law that states any two bodies attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (chemistry) law stating that the proportions in which two elements separately combine with a third element are also the proportions in which they combine together

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (psychology) the principle that behaviors are selected by their consequences; behavior having good consequences tends to be repeated whereas behavior that leads to bad consequences is not repeated

(... is a kind of law of nature ) a law affirming that to continue after a certain level of performance has been reached will result in a decline in effectiveness

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (chemistry) law stating that every pure substance always contains the same elements combined in the same proportions by weight

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (genetics) one of two principles of heredity formulated by Gregor Mendel on the basis of his experiments with plants; the principles were limited and modified by subsequent genetic research

(... is a kind of law of nature ) one of three basic laws of classical mechanics

(... is a kind of law of nature ) electric current is directly proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance; I = E/R

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (psychophysics) the concept that a just-noticeable difference in a stimulus is proportional to the magnitude of the original stimulus

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (psychophysics) the concept that the magnitude of a subjective sensation increases proportional to a power of the stimulus intensity

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (physics) a universal law that states that the laws of mechanics are not affected by a uniform rectilinear motion of the system of coordinates to which they are referred

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (physics) an equation that expresses the distribution of energy in the radiated spectrum of an ideal black body

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (physics) the basis of quantum theory; the energy of electromagnetic waves is contained in indivisible quanta that have to be radiated or absorbed as a whole; the magnitude is proportional to frequency where the constant of proportionality is given by Planck's constant

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (chemistry) the principle that chemical properties of the elements are periodic functions of their atomic numbers

(... is a kind of law of nature ) no two electrons or protons or neutrons in a given system can be in states characterized by the same set of quantum numbers

"the hydraulic press is an application of Pascal's law"

(... is a kind of law of nature ) a law affirming that in the long run probabilities will determine performance

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (physics) two laws governing electric networks in which steady currents flow: the sum of all the currents at a point is zero and the sum of the voltage gains and drops around any closed circuit is zero

(... is a kind of law of nature ) a fundamental principle of electrostatics; the force of attraction or repulsion between two charged particles is directly proportional to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the distance between them; principle also holds for magnetic poles

(... is a kind of law of nature ) the pressure of an ideal gas at constant temperature varies inversely with the volume

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (physics) statistical law obeyed by a system of particles whose wave function is not changed when two particles are interchanged (the Pauli exclusion principle does not apply)

(... is a kind of law of nature ) a law used by auditors to identify fictitious populations of numbers; applies to any population of numbers derived from other numbers

"Benford's law holds that 30% of the time the first non-zero digit of a derived number will be 1 and it will be 9 only 4.6% of the time"

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (statistics) law stating that a large number of items taken at random from a population will (on the average) have the population statistics

(... is a kind of law of nature ) the principle that equal volumes of all gases (given the same temperature and pressure) contain equal numbers of molecules

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (hydrostatics) the apparent loss in weight of a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the displaced fluid

(... is a kind of law of nature ) a rule or law concerning a natural phenomenon or the function of a complex system

"the principle of the conservation of mass" "the principle of jet propulsion" "the right-hand rule for inductive fields"

(... is a kind of law of nature ) (chemistry and physics) law stating that the pressure exerted by a mixture of gases equals the sum of the partial pressures of the gases in the mixture; the pressure of a gas in a mixture equals the pressure it would exert if it occupied the same volume alone at the same temperature
