    I Can windows frost over in space?

    Sorry. Maybe more specific situations may explain where my disbelief comes from. Please help me out with this and explain flaws in thinking if I have them. Specific responses: I'm not sure I understand you. Do you mean snow on the inside? I'm actually not clear if you still talk about...

    I Can windows frost over in space?

    I thought about this pretty hard, can windows frost over in space? I'm pretty sure they don't or can't after giving it a bit of thought. This is just a curiosity of mine. So first I believe the correct question that we're trying to answer is: Can a window get colder than interior air faster...

    I Is it possible for something to be smaller than a Planck length?

    Not the best response someone can give, but so the reason the plank length exists as a term is because this is the distance that which light travels in the plank time. Below this distance, quantum uncertainty takes over and essentially means that all your measurements are meaningless...

    Stargazing Event Horizon Telescope Results Released Yesterday (April 10, 2019)

    What does the picture of the black hole actually imply? I had some begruding idea that this may be sensationaism. Maybe the picture is just too cool for everyone. Is this the reason that it's just blown up everywhere?

    A 3-star triangular orbit possible?

    Oh of course, right. Alright well that answers the post. Thanks folks, not necessarily that I understood all words and explanations, but got the idea.

    A 3-star triangular orbit possible?

    Thanks I did look at it. But anyway no, I didn't understand if it would answer my question. I was unclear if he understood my question properly. I hadn't understood if the page considered my question. Additionally of course this doesn't explain what the issue with my triangular orbit.

    A 3-star triangular orbit possible?

    I'm not sure what you mean. Can you essentially place 3 stars on equidistant points on a circle? As a result I don't think there are 'smallest' orbits like you said.

    A 3-star triangular orbit possible?

    Apparently 3-star systems aren't really 'doable' as in two stars, with one in-between- but nested binaries are possible. So is it 'possible' for 3 stars to maintain at least a somewhat stable triangular configuration?

    I What's an eigenstate

    Ok but it seems like you just said eigenstates are solutions. YOu said that any linear operator has its eigenstates so those eigenstates are simply "solutions" corresponding to specific quantum numbers right?

    I What's an eigenstate

    So more or less, eigenstates are simply solutions?

    I What's an eigenstate

    thx guys

    I What's an eigenstate

    What is an eigenstate in relation to the Schodinger equation? We've been working with this stuff but I don't exactly understand what that is. I know of linear algebra eigenstates or eigenfunctions but I don't know if they are directly related.

    I Classical uncertainty

    It's a bit rare I think but it's Modern Physics by Paul Tipler/Ralph Llewellyn

    I Classical uncertainty

    In Quantum Mech. we learned about classical uncertainty, and then Heisenberg's uncertainty principle which comes from it. The way it is in the book is, the preceding chapter talks about how the superposition of lots of waves ∑ gives you these groups, and things like group velocity comes from...

    RC circuit black box circuit modeling

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh you might be right there.... This may just be stupidly lazy TA's at work..... I spent an hour trying these diagrams. Thanks both.
