Quadrature Amplitude Modulation - A modulation method in which two signals are used to amplitude-modulate two carriers
that are in quadrature
Quantum Mechanics - The laws of physics that apply on very small scales.
Quarter Wave Tube - A resonator used most commonly on automotive air intake systems to reduce resonance.
Quasi Static - Refers to forces or displacements which vary slowly with time.
Quench Hardening - Hardening a ferrous alloy by austenitizing and then cooling rapidly enough so that some or all of the
austenite transforms to martensite.
Quenching - Rapid cooling
Quiescent - For an electronic circuit, a quiet state in which the circuit is driving no load and its inputs are not cycling
