A sex cell, such as a sperm cell or an ovum 
The particular combination of genes possessed by an individual 
A fertilised egg cell 
The general term for isomerism where the isomers concerned also share structural formulae 
A form of the above where the difference comes from an inability of part of the species to rotate 
A hard-to-detect form of isomerism which arises when a carbon atom has four different groups bonded to it. 
Force divided by the initial area of a sample. 
Extension divided by original length 
The ratio of the two previous answers 
A complex number describing the magnitude and phase of a sinusoidal signal 
A circuit designed to eliminate components at one specific frequency from a signal 
A component which changes its electrical properties in response to a change in its physical properties or environment 
A pure sample of a material with semiconducting properties, such as silicon 
A sample of semiconducting material where the fermi level is closer to the valence band than for a pure sample of semiconducting material 
An impurity added to semiconducting material in order to increase or decrease the number of free electrons within it. 
Fluid mechanics
A dimensionless quantity which measures the turbulence of a fluid flow 
An equation which defines the 'head' of a fluid flow as being the sum of terms in its pressure, velocity and height 
The equation which states that the mass flow rate of a fluid flow must remain constant. 
Nuclear physics
The difference between the mass of a nucleus and the total mass of its nucleons 
A form of nuclear fusion which is catalysed by short-lived particles 
A substance used to slow down the neutrons released as part of a nuclear fission reaction. 
Particle physics
The antiparticle formed when a nucleus undergoes beta decay (I assumed beta -. but beta + decay is now accepted.)) 
Electrons, Muons, Tau particles, as well as their respective antiparticles and neutrinos, are all members of this group of fundamental particles. 
A baryon composed of two up and one down quark 
Analysis of chemicals
A technique which provides information as to how a molecule breaks up when ionised, and on the mass of various chemical species 
A technique used to analyse chemical species which exploits the property of nuclear spin possessed by certain nuclei 
The shining of various wavelengths of infrared radiation onto a sample to see which ones are absorbed 
Acid/Base theory
The theory of acid-base interactions which considers an acid to be a proton donor 
A substance with the ability to react as both an acid and a base 
A theory of acid-base interactions where an acid is held to be a species which accepts electron pairs, and a base one which donates them. 
Reaction Mechanisms
The reaction between bromoethane and hydroxide ions to produce bromide ions and ethanol is an example 
A compound which attacks parts of other compounds which are rich in electrodensity. 
An electrically-neutral 'fragment' which can form when something breaks a chemical bond - these fragments are highly reactive, and can attack even relatively stable compounds such as alkanes in a substitution reaction.
