							Yes, the other words like whose colloquial meanings are often different from their scientific meanings are momentum, charge, velocity and impulse.
Momentum: - Some time people say this political party has the momentum to win this election. Actually the people do not use the word momentum in the sense of product of mass and its velocity. Therefore the word momentum whose colloquial meanings are often different from their scientific meanings.
Charge: - Some time people uses the word charge as the power of a team or community which is given to a person. It is not measured in terms of the unit of charge of coulomb. Therefore the word charge whose colloquial meanings are often different from their scientific meanings.
Velocity: - The colloquia use of the term velocity is speed. Therefore the word velocity whose colloquial meanings are often different from their scientific meanings.
Impulse: - If someone buys something on impulse that does not signifies the scientific definition of impulse. Therefore the word impulse whose colloquial meanings are often different from their scientific meanings.
