exert (v.), exertion (n.)
1) You have to exert force to move this object.
2) Exertion is a concept describing the use of physical energy. It normally connotates a strenuous or costly effort related to physical, muscular, philosophical actions and work.
3) In physics exertion is use of energy against, or for, inertia as described by Isaac Newton's Newton's Laws of Motion third law.
4) In mechanics exertion describes use of force against a body in direction of its motion (vector).
react (v.), reaction (n.)
1) Calcium reacts with water but less violently (интенсивно) than sodium (натрий) and potassium (калий) do.
2) It is fairly easy to react unsaturated molecules with a variety of chemical reagents.
3) A chemical reaction is a process that leads to the transformation of one set of chemical substances to another.
4) In nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry, a nuclear reaction is semantically considered to be the process in which two nuclei, or else a nucleus of an atom and a subatomic particle (such as a proton, neutron, or high energy electron) from outside the atom, collide to produce one or more nuclides that are different from the nuclide(s) that began the process.
5) Thus, a nuclear reaction must cause a transformation of at least one nuclide to another.
6) In principle, a reaction can involve more than two particles colliding, but because the probability of three or more nuclei to meet at the same time at the same place is much less than for two nuclei, such an event is exceptionally rare.
