[noun] In science, the term accuracy describes how well a measurement approximates the theoretically correct value of that measurement, for example, how close an arrow strikes to the center of a target. Accuracy provides a measure of the systematic error associated with a value. Compare to precision. See the module Uncertainty, Error, and Confidence.
[noun] The process of mating certain animals or plants to intentionally pass along desirable traits to the next generation also called selective breeding.
[noun] The interaction of a molecule with something other than itself, often related to mechanical or electrostatic forces. For example, water forms a meniscus within a glass cylinder due to adhesive forces between the water and glass.

While we strive to provide the most comprehensive notes for as many high school textbooks as possible, there are certainly going to be some that we miss. Drop us a note and let us know which textbooks you need. Be sure to include which edition of the textbook you are using! If we see enough demand, we'll do whatever we can to get those notes up on the site for you!
These AP Biology outlines correspond to Campbell's Biology, 7th Edition. These outlines, along with the AP Biology Slides , will help you prepare for the AP Biology Exam.
[noun] The momentum possessed by an object in rotation around a point, it is the analog to linear momentum. In physics, one of the fundamental conserved quantities in classical and quantum mechanics (the others are mass, energy, and linear momentum). Total angular momentum of a particle in quantum mechanics is the sum of the spin angular momentum and the orbital angular momentum. The units of Planck's constant are units of angular momentum.
[adjective] Related to, located in, or living in or on a body of water. Not terrestrial. Aquatic includes both freshwater and saltwater (marine) environments.
[organization] A professional society for chemists established in 6876. The mission of ACS is "to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people." In addition to publishing journals and holding meetings, ACS provides competitive funding for research through its Petroleum Research Fund. More information about ACS can be found on their website.
