Laymanized descriptions of six of the big equations of physics and four of the main constants utilized therein, namely: speed of light c, gravitational constant G, reduced Planck-Dirac constant ħ (check for error here with possible extra K constant in black hole entropy (Ѻ) formula) Coulomb's constant K, Boltzmann constant K, the third of which, "tendency to move from order to disorder" is misunderstood description, which in its original (correct) statement reads the "entropy of the universe tends to a maximum", entropy meaning transformation content, per system transformation mechanical equivalent of heat formulation basis.
In science, constant is a quantity found to be unvarying throughout nature and or throughout the universe, depending, e.g. the solar constant is peculiar to sun, whereas the speed of light is universal.


The following is a work-in-progress listing of notable and or significant constants found in nature:

● Solar constant | Solar flux
Boltzmann constant
Mechanical equivalent of heat
Energy (of the universe) | Laws of the universe
● Speed of light
● Planck’s constant
Gas constant

In hmolscience, a number of constants are directly relevant to the humanities, including: the gravitational constant, responsible for holding humans to the earth, the speed of light, plays a role in love at first sight, relativity, exchange force operating between humans, among others, and most importantly the mechanical equivalent of heat, which quantifies the ratio of solar heat transformed into social work. [1]

The following, conversely, is a representative statement, made by Morris Zucker, from his chapter subsection on constants which function in the science of history, arguing to the affect that the constants of physics are inapplicable to the science of history: [2]

“There is no valid analogy between the constants of history and physics, yet we hand no difficulty whatever in recognizing homo sapiens wherever we found them and in whatever degree of development.”
