Physics Part V

This is a slight expansion on the previous version. For each of these charts, to move down, you integrate over time, and to move to the right, you integrate over distance. Left and up are derivatives with respect to distance and time respectively. One might expand these charts further to the left, if various quantities of density are of particular interest.

I came across the unit "inverse femtobarns" today and had to look it up. It turns out it is a measure of area density (like "per square meter").

Here is an interesting discussion of the issues raised in this chart.
