1. ### A Books/Resources related to the thermal model for particle production

I can only find papers relating to how they've used the model but nothing about the model.
2. ### I Resistance of Platinum decreases with an increase in temperature ?

Basic Procedure The experiment basically involves finding the null point on the Carey Foster's bridge with the PRT as the unknown resistance and using a Resistance box as the variable resistance. In the above diagram, P and Q are 2 fixed resistors of equal resistances. For obtaining the first...
3. ### I Newton's Rings Experiment

No, I'm pretty sure I haven't. I can send in a couple of my readings if you want to.
4. ### I Newton's Rings Experiment

I did consider that but I'm pretty sure I haven't and even if there was, since we're plotting D2 vs n, the error would either be of 100 or 0.01 because we're squaring D.
5. ### I Newton's Rings Experiment

When monochromatic light is incident on a plano convex lens(as shown in the picture), these dark rings are produced which are observed with the help of a travelling microscope. The procedure requires us to measure the diameter of each ring (We need to measure the diameter of at least 10...
6. ### I Project on Electricity & Magnetism(Topic Suggestions needed)

So I have taken up this course on Electricity and Magnetism and we need to prepare a project as in not very broad as such but for example, attempting to solve a problem or something that is related to the subject but off the course. I'd like to involve computation too in some form or the other...
7. ### Programs What and Where do I apply?

Thank you so much for opening my eyes and I'll do try for what you said.
8. ### Melde's Experiment

Homework Statement Why working formula for transverse and longitudinal arrangement in melde experiment different in Melde's experiment ? Homework Equations None. The corresponding equations are all derived from the same fact. The Attempt at a Solution So, I have understood that the tuning...
9. ### Twin spring system with a mass in between (X and Y direction)

I have a really silly question, but : 1. Are we assuming the mass to be a point mass? 2. Are the springs allowed to "turn" or "twist" ?
10. ### Twin spring system with a mass in between (X and Y direction)

Okay so I'm just an undergrad but like how about you place the ball at an arbitrary position, lets say (x0, y0) with the spring being streched, and then compute the net force in terms of the angles(which could be further expressed in terms of x and y coordinates of the ball) and then have two...
11. ### Programs What and Where do I apply?

I realised this like 2 weeks ago and it's been troubling me really hard because I don't see any practical applications to physics without engineering.
12. ### Programs What and Where do I apply?

So I'm an undergrad student from India pursuing physics, I'm currently in my first year and I'm really confused as to what I should do. I mean, I like physics, especially the computational aspect of it, but I don't know if I'll continue physics after three years. Summer's gonna start soon and I...
13. ### Admissions Applying with high percentile/low scores

Ohh abroad I see. You sure your parents fine with it right ? (Speaking from experience) And for what course btw ?
14. ### Admissions Applying with high percentile/low scores

Dude you'll easily get in, but I ned an idea as to where exactly do you wanna apply ? Cos as far as uni's are concerned (excl. engineering institutes) the best ones open (or stay open) after the results come out.
15. ### Sources of errors in a spectrometer experiment

The curve of angle of deviation vs angle of incidence
