Does anybody have a list of all of the different physics definitions, such as Kinetic Energy vs. Velocity, vs. Momentum, vs. Speed or Work vs. Force etc. etc. I tend to get the definitions confused so if there is anybody who has a site or paper which points out the differences between the different sets clearly I would greatly appreciate it.

I use a 'Dictionary of Physics' for remembering things like this. A very handy small reference book that I use a lot.

It is at work, so I can't give you more details, but if you can get something similar you will find it very useful.
(I use it to try and work out what many of the posts on this forum are going on about!! )
