    Particle or wave?

    does anyone know what would happen if one were to replace the screen in the double slit experiment with a photoelectric metal sheet. Would we observe both wave and particle nature in the same experiment?

    What are the rank conditions for consistency of a linear algebraic system?

    Well my text book says that the rank of a matrix is the dimension of the largest square sub matrix whose determinant is non-zero. we just started the chapter so I'm not sure what you mean by row reduction, could you please elaborate? I'm sorry, I konw that these are really simple questions but...

    What are the rank conditions for consistency of a linear algebraic system?

    what are the rank conditions for consistency of a linear algebraic system? my proffessor said that the coefficient matrix augmented with the column value matrix must have the same rank as the coefficient matrix for consistency of the system of equations. however does the term rank apply to...

    Schools Best grad schools for astronautics?

    hey guys, I'm an international student studying mechanical engineering in India for my undergrad. I wanted to graduate in astrophysics, but apparently I'll need a physics degree for that, and as I think its a bit to late to shift, I figure the closest thing would be graduation in astronautics...

    Physics Can astrophysicists get a job at NatGeo?

    well, the reason I wanted to work for NatGeo was cus I wanted adventure in my life combined with the sheer exhileration in viewing this world through the eyes of science. So if NatGeo doesnt offer that, do you know any other company or firm that does? Maybe a research sector of some company...

    Physics Can astrophysicists get a job at NatGeo?

    well, I thought national geographic was more than just a magazine, cause on their website they have expeditions and all sorts of programmes, and the tv channel shows some of these to......so is there nothing more to NatGeo than just scientific media?

    Physics Can astrophysicists get a job at NatGeo?

    I'm doing my undergrad course in mechanical engineering and I want to graduate in astrophysics, first of all, is such a transition possible? also, does National Geographic have requirements for astrophysicists, or do they just talk to proffesors of universities.?

    Engineering Is it posible to graduate in astrophysics after undergrad in mechanical engineering

    is it posible to graduate in astrophysics after undergrad in mechanical engineering, this is what I've currently planned and I'm already one semester into my engineering undergrad course. is it necessary that i switch or is it possible to study some of the fundamentals of astro on my own and...

    Physics Mechanical enginering + astrophysics, what are the prospects?

    well I have considered switching, see I'm studying in India right now, and the thing is there just arnt any universities in india that offer good education bachelors in physics, also , my college does not do transfer programmes. see the thing in india is that, there is this insane race where...

    Physics Mechanical enginering + astrophysics, what are the prospects?

    note: well my passion isnt really just astrophysics, it's more towards cosmology, and theoretical treatment of reality so..........if thats the route I wanna take, what do I have to do...?

    Physics Mechanical enginering + astrophysics, what are the prospects?

    well thing is, so far everything I know about astrophysics is on my own study, I'm still in my first year so my courses are fixed, I'll have electives coming up next year that i can pick but, since I'm in mechanical I dont know if there will be any theoretical subjects. I did have a general...
