    Static frictions and moving boxes on top of a box

    ohh I didn't include that. Thanks, it makes sense!

    Static frictions and moving boxes on top of a box

    hmm so far.. m= mass of box and M=mass of cart. I assume the acceleration of the box and cart is the same. F(box)=force(friction)=umg=ma ug=a F(cart)=force done by you=Ma Substitute ug=a into the equation. u*g*M=Force so mass of the box doesn't matter?

    Calculate wavelength of electron

    Thanks. So in addition to time dilation and length contraction, is this what you call momentum dilation?

    Monochromatic light and reflection

    lol no. This was a practice exam and half the people got it wrong. I guess the teacher was just being tricky.

    Monochromatic light and reflection

    so perhaps the index of refraction does not matter?

    http://www.screencast.com/users/trinhn812/folders/Jing/media/07c73e88-45a9-4703-91e1-237b20135d2c I'm not sure why the answer is A. I tried reasoning myself that it has to do with the critical angle, but I can't seem to convince myself.

    Thin hair diffraction

    I'm still a bit confused as to why the dot like patterns are horizontal. What is the black dot? Is that suppose to indicate a circular single slit? In the following picture, I'm confused as to how the picture on the left translate to the one on the right. As the diffraction pattern on the left...

    Plagued by Snell's law and geometry

    I'm just having a horrendous time trying to figure this problem out. My geometry is really lacking. http://www.screencast.com/users/trinhn812/folders/Jing/media/64c9342a-985a-4bb2-9e29- [Broken] 98b5b5ebb1ad

    Thin hair diffraction

    I believe so. The wavelets due to huygen's principle can still propagate at the edges of the hair. Do the wavelets propagate horizontally around the vertical hair? It just confuses because single slit oriented vertically produce vertical patterns. But hair doesn't and I am told it acts similar...

    Thin hair diffraction

    So I understand that thin hair or wire can make a diffraction pattern, but why would the diffraction pattern be horizontal when the hair is vertical?
