1. ### Heat transfer modeling

Sure I can offer a bit more info. The Al strip is definitely not melting. It is part of a proprietary process that is being used daily. It works very well, but my boss would like to gain a much better understanding of the physics going on so we can know if the process is fully optimized or not...
2. ### Heat transfer modeling

Well that is how joule heating works. You have some potential and some current that creates some power dissipation over the object in question.
3. ### Heat transfer modeling

Hello everyone, I was hoping to get some insight on a model I am trying to create. Quick background in case it is important, I am now working at a new internship I landed for the summer doing some modeling and what not on areas of physics I have never worked on before. It has also been a few...
4. ### Antenna Problem

Hello all, I have a problem with a typical style of problem I seem to always struggle with. Just to clear this up, I am studying for my comprehensive exams later this summer. So I am going through past problems to bone up on the last two years of grad school. At which point I came across this...
5. ### A Preparation of Quantum States

Hello everyone, We come to the end of another semester and its presentation time. I have chosen to discuss how to prepare different quantum mechanical systems for various applications. So my question for you guys is, are there any interesting experimental techniques I should look into. I am...
6. ### Index Notation help

So I figured it out! I just needed to be more confident in myself haha. So had I kept going I would have seen that aibjdiej is the result I was looking for. However the second portion should then reduce to zero.... and luckily it does. To prove this you can write out the sum and see that they...
7. ### Index Notation help

1. The problem is: ( a x b )⋅[( b x c ) x ( c x a )] = [a,b,c]^2 = [ a⋅( b x c )]^2 I am supposed to solve this using index notation.... and I am having some problems. 2. Homework Equations : I guess I just don't understand the finer points of index notation. Every time I think I am getting...
