    Cyclotron exit energy

    So, i'm beggining to work in a cylcotron as operator. Most of the crew here has technical education, albeit not quite a physics degree. When i asked what's the distribution of energies of the particles when they hit the target i got a blank look. How could i determine this? I'm guessing that...

    Undergrad publications

    it's been said on the lab today that maybe the lab work we're doing (i'm an undergrad, 4th year of physics) could be honed into a publication.. my lab partner was really excited about it, but i had my doubts because i don't know what are the future consequences of doing this. i never trust...

    Enthalpy of ideal gas

    Hello. I'm having troubles solving the enthalpy for an ideal gas. From the equation H=U+PV, i could find H substituting PV=NRT = U/c, but then i need the energy as a function of S and P, so i'd get H as a function of its proper variables (S and P).. I can't find such an expression. It's just...

    All purpose pump

    hi, i've been inspired by this wind generator design: http://www.instructables.com/id/Pringles-Wind-Turbine-Pleech---Version-One/ to make it operate in reverse, that is, feed alternating current and make the thing spin. The purpose of this is to make a pump by putting a wheel (similar to those...

    Short circuits

    so, i'm pretty bored and decided that i want to make a speaker. i've bought some thick copper wire, and twisted it in the form of a coil, then twisted some more with a larger radius so i can put the first one inside the second one and so on.. my motivation to buy the thick wire was to maximize...

    Electromagnetic Momentum and Energy

    I've been presented with these concepts, and the first time i saw them i thought they were just mathematical mambo-jumbo, but of course i didn't gave much importance to these thoughts. I've been constructing an idea of these after seeing how they behave in different circumstances, but really, i...

    Getting g such that del dot g = f (given)

    Hi, it's not quite a homework question, altought this question came up to mind when i was trying to solve a homework problem. sorry if this shouldn't be here... The thing is this, what are the conditions i should impose to f: R^n -> R in order to be able to find a g, such that [divergence of g...

    How much does a falling object weights ?

    how much does a falling object "weights"? Hi ev. the other day i was asked by a friend that does "aerial silk" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerial_silk, just found out it was called that :P) how much (still) weight should the beam (to which the silk is tied) hold in order to hold her weight...
