Gravity waves are generated in the troposphere by frontal systems or by airflow over mountains. At first, waves propagate through the atmosphere without appreciable change in mean velocity. But as the waves reach more rarefied air at higher altitudes, their amplitude increases, and nonlinear effects cause the waves to break, transferring their momentum to the mean flow. This transfer of momentum is responsible for the forcing of the many large-scale dynamical features of the atmosphere. This momentum transfer is partly responsible for the driving of the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation, and in the mesosphere, it is thought to be the major driving force of the Semi-Annual Oscillation.

The Pythagorean theorem was known long before Pythagoras, but he may well have been the first to prove it. In any event, the proof attributed to him is very simple, and is called a proof by rearrangement. The two large squares shown in the figure each contain four identical triangles, and the only difference between the two large squares is that the triangles are arranged differently. Therefore, the white space within each of the two large squares must have equal area. Equating the area of the white space yields the Pythagorean theorem. That Pythagoras originated this very simple proof is sometimes inferred from the writings of the later Greek philosopher Proclus.

The metre was originally defined in 1793 as one ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole. The original international prototype of the metre is still kept under the conditions specified in 1889.
