    B Is the formation of galaxy groups explained correctly here?

    Thank you for the answer. :smile: Can you please explain how quantum fluctuations affected the distribution of matter? (I assume you were referring to the distribution of mass in space with your use of the phrase "...different densities in different regions...")

    B Is the formation of galaxy groups explained correctly here?

    Hello! I watched a video on the Youtube channel Kurzgesagt titled How far can we go? Limits of humanity The video attempts to explain why we may be limited to our local galaxy group even with science fiction technologies. During a part of the video (starting at 2:26), they try to explain how...

    UG EE. Anything valuable I can learn this summer?

    So any small, one man projects/hacks or anything that I might be able to work on and learn through experience? So far I have studied the following courses that might be somewhat directly applicable (other than the basic sciences and math): 1. Programming (OOP and basic Data structures and...

    UG EE. Anything valuable I can learn this summer?

    Hello. :) I am an undergrad EE student at the end of my fourth semester. I have to take a couple of courses in the summer semester to improve them. So a full time internship might not be possible. Are there any small things I can learn along the way in the summer, on my own? Any new software...

    Logic Design: Interpreting entering and leaving a room.

    No. Haven't studied any synchronizer circuit or their uses.

    Logic Design: Interpreting entering and leaving a room.

    What is the "wait" operation? Staying in the same state if the inputs from the IR receivers remain unchanged? Or is it something more complicated? For the sequence detector to wait if nothing changes is exactly what I think I need.

    Logic Design: Interpreting entering and leaving a room.

    What I meant to say was that each sequence detector would be looking for a particular sequence. One sequence detector would output '1' for incrementing the counter when the input sequence for entering is detected. (lets say it would be 00->01->11->10->00), while the other does the opposite for...

    Logic Design: Interpreting entering and leaving a room.

    Homework Statement Hello. We have been given a project in our course "Digital Logic Design", which is an introductory course to Digital Logic. We are only allowed to use gates, multiplexers, flip-flops/latches, counters, comparators, simple displays (like seven segments) etc. I am making...

    Studying Popular science books, science documentaries bad?

    I went through someone's thread asking regarding a popular science book, a considerable time ago. I got the impression that the more knowledgeable members in the discussion did not approve of most popular science books (if my memory serves me right the point mainly was that it gave people the...

    The term: New Math

    Are the wikipedia articles about long and short division accurate? There isn't much different in the two methods they show.

    Meet a Mentor: berkeman

    Good one. Sort of inspirational. Can relate myself to more than one part. Was confused between physics and EE (although my physics never was very good). Now doing EE and the first year so far (in 2nd semester) has been very bad. Hope I can pull it off nicely from here onward like berkeman did. :)

    Mgh at infinity.

    So mgh is fundamentally incorrect and it only works in a particular case? And the g.p. energy actually does keep increasing the farther the body goes?

    Mgh at infinity.

    According to the eq. U=mgh the gravitational potential energy should keep increasing with height. But it actually reaches zero at infinity. At what point does the g.p energy start decreasing when going away from earth? Why does this eq. seem to contradict -GMm/r where g.p energy decreases with...

    Range of quadratic equation.

    Thanks a lot genericusername. :smile:. That cleared it up.
