Science - Physics
 English term or phrase: point mass A point mass in physics is an idealization of a body whose dimensions are very small compared to the other distances which are relevant to the problem. In such cases, the internal structure of the body can be neglected, and the body can be treated as if its mass were concentrated at one point in space.
