kinetics

 [kĭ-net´iks; ki-net´iks]
the scientific study of the turnover, or rate of change, of a specific factor in the body, commonly expressed as units of amount per unit time.
chemical kinetics the scientific study of the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions.
urea kinetics the movement of urea in the body and its excretion through the kidneys or dialysis apparatus; see also urea clearance.
