I need to get a list of all the mathematical constants there are in standard use today. Things like PI, e (Natural Logorithm), Avogadro's Number (6.022(10E23)), Mols, and the Gravity constant. I know all of those, so I need ones that aren't on the list - those are just examples of what I'm looking for.

do you have any idea how many constants there are??

I've got 2 pages of them just for physical chemistry.
bleh i'll give you some of them:


Speed of light, c, 2.99792458 * 10 ^ 8 ms^-1

Elementary charge, e, 1.602177 * 10 ^ -19 C

Faraday constant, F, 9.6485 * 10^4 C mol^-1

Boltzmann constant, k, 1.38066 * 10^-23 JK^-1

Planck constant, h, 6.62608 * 10^-34 J s

Atomic mass unit, u, 1.66054 * 10^-27 kg

Vacuum permittivity, epsilon naught (i can't type the symbol here), 8.85419 * 10^-12 J^-1 C^2 m^-1

Bohr radius, a0(subscript 0), 5.29177 * 10^-24 J T^-1

Rydberg constant, R, 1.09677 * 10^5 cm^-1


and on and on and on...

Umm...... ok...... any idea where I can get a hard copy? or at least a web site that might have them?

Hard copy? Try any physics text book.

Website.... hmm... not that i know of, try a google search i guess.

This page lists a lot of constants (useful and useless :)) and also explains a little background on them. Quite interesting.
