This is a good site (in English only) for looking up scientific information:

It has sections on chemistry, mathematics, physics, astronomy, and scientific biography: each of these is clearly subdivided into various categories, and it\'s easy to find your way around. In the physics section I found some useful tables of units, with their symbols and SI symbols.

This site is an absolute gem when it comes to scientific material. I use it extensively to research esoteric subjects like atomic particles to basic mathematics and chemistry. It\'s maintained by Eric Weisstein who started out by collecting on-line sources and it has now bloomed into this encyclopaedic portal.


\"As a result of this fruitful collaboration, ScienceWorld has grown to become the web\'s most extensive single source of educational and reference material about mathematics. To join the continuing efforts toward bringing the richness of mathematics to the internet, please send email to the site\'s maintainers at
