    Jobs in audio amplifier circuit design?

    Thank you guys for both your replies. Yeah that makes sense, so maybe I should focus on building some cool amp projects and getting experience in that area, or maybe dissecting existing amp circuits, drawing schematics from them and analyzing them on a YouTube channel or something to show that...

    Jobs in audio amplifier circuit design?

    Vanadium 50, feel free to reply freely as long as the advice is intended to be honest and helpful. I am willing to do work that is not amplifier design, of course, but I want to work TOWARD that goal by networking and acquiring the proper skills and things like that along the way. There are...

    Jobs in audio amplifier circuit design?

    Hey guys (and ladies), I am a junior year EEE student at CSU Sacramento and am hoping to get a job in audio amplifier design as a career after graduating. I have always loved music and electronics and working in this field would honestly be like a dream come true. As far as my experience in...

    Enclosed floating aquatic 12v car-audio amp system

    Jim Hardy - I mean, it's pretty much a given that this system would be used to play reggae, ska, dance, and basically feel-good summer music. I would always be courteous though, and of course this whole shabang would only be through the highest quality cheap parts I could afford, haha. And I...

    Physics What to do when you feel like you've wasted your potential?

    When you talk about being less than stellar at math, Oliver Heaviside is an example who comes to mind. You may not have heard of him, but he was a physicist and an electrical engineer who made huge contributions to signal theory and our understanding of electrical waves as they propogate over...

    Enclosed floating aquatic 12v car-audio amp system

    And for your information, I would not play Handel's water music but there qould be a fair amount of Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Chopin and of course Liszt. Never was much for Handel myself, no offense

    Enclosed floating aquatic 12v car-audio amp system

    You guys are a bunch of squares haha. I know that a forum of physics enthusiasts will be filled with a lot of introverts and people who are more easily annoyed with stimulation from the external world, but to reply to my post with something like "Oh well I might be able to help but I refuse to...

    Enclosed floating aquatic 12v car-audio amp system

    Hey guys so I have had this idea for an electronics project for a long time, and it basically goes like this. It's a floating speaker box for floating on the river when we are rafting. Design considerations are that it would have to be unsinkable (as much as possible), also loud and with a...

    Why does atmosphere rotate w/ constant angular velocity?

    Yeah that's that I said, that it has always rotated at the same angular momentum as the earth. This thread was originally posted so I could better understand the nature of the circular motion of the atmosphere, and I feel much more comfortable with this topic now. Thanks for posting :biggrin:

    Why does atmosphere rotate w/ constant angular velocity?

    Of all the responses, I like this one the best. Thank you Jim60, this is a very good way yo think about gases surrounding the earth as their behavior in terms of rotating with the earth is not so different from the behavior we might see if the earth were covered with water. Thanks to drakkith...

    Why does atmosphere rotate w/ constant angular velocity?

    FactChecker - good catch. I knew that the increase in tangential speed wouldn't be huge, but I didn't expect it would be as low as 1 mph. Even if the upper atmosphere didn't spin at the same rate as the lower, it might not be noticeable if the difference between thrm is that low. DH - that is...

    Why does atmosphere rotate w/ constant angular velocity?

    Drakkith thank you for your reply. I guess what it comes down to is that the motion of the atmosphere cannot be thought of in terms of being linear, because it makes sense when you say but it only makes sense if we think about it as circular motion. I feel that the air particles and other...

    Work when lifting weights- fast vs slow

    Yes except the lifter would suffocate in the vacuum because there would be no oxygen :biggrin: and I'm pretty sure we are safe neglecting air resistance in this case

    Why does atmosphere rotate w/ constant angular velocity?

    Thanks etudiant, jupiter is a good analog to the situation. Honestly I don't know if the surface rotates at the same angular velocity as the interior of the planet, like ours does, but I assume it would. I guess the problem I have is only understanding things partway. I have always felt this...
