    I'd like to start a Glossary about Physics/Astronomy/Mathematics, but sometimes the definitions would be just equation, in order not to create definition of 2,000 words.
    E.g.: Momentum = mv,
    m=mass, v=speed
    Is it ok? Can I start it in Italian?

    As long as equations work properly, I don't see anything wrong with your request. You can start it in Italian, of course, but it would be good to give the English equivalents, too, in order to translate them most accurately into the other languages.

    If your English isn't sufficient, you can ask for translation in the Italian forum. :)

    Ok, I'll try. I hope to succeed in a few days!

    If you go to Physics at Wikipeida: and look at the left margin you will see links to similar entries in about 3 dozen languages including Italian. It is not in glossary form, but it may be of use to you.

    Thanks a lot!
    I'm sure it'll help!
    I admit it's taking longer than I had expected to find enough time for it...

    Correction F = m a where F is Force (not momentum). momentum is when you combine force with a lever

    Sorry, but your correction is wrong. It is momentum p = m * v. You confused it with moment (of a force). In Czech: momentum = hybnost, moment (of a force) = moment (síly)
