Post your favorite physics equation. It can be about anything just make sure you explain what the equation describes and who formulated it.

It suggests that if you have a thing and you group it together with another thing in such a way that combining them represents some sort of meaningfully significant new entity, then you can describe that new entity with a symbol that will describe the objects as a collection rather than singular entities.

Happy Quark you should get in touch with rexrino over at physicsforums. He had some disturbingly impressive insight about a formula similar to yours

My fav physics equation is

T=1/f

Where f= frequency
T= time for one cycle
