I am having hard trouble learning about coefficients and constants. Please give me a specific example or answer. I think that a coefficient is a number after a variable. Also I believe that Constants are the number after a + or - sign.
- Constant: a value given by some external source and doesn't change. For example, on the Earth, the strength of the gravity is constant.
- Coefficient: "co" means "with", "efficient" means here "is effecting". It is a value which describes, how something changes with an other thing. For example, the barometric coefficient shows, how the air pressure decreases if you fly higher.
