    Comp Sci Asymmetric Encryption

    I was looking at the algorithm at earlier but got scared looking at modular multiplicative inverses; I still can't fully wrap my head around it but I'll try to learn more about it since you suggest that it's simple enough. Thank you very much.

    Admissions Getting to MIT from India

    Just putting out my 2 cents here. @Vanadium 50 I think you're misinterpreting OP's intentions in some of these posts with no fault of your own. You mentioned that being coached for a single exam is easier than developing yourself to be a good fit for a school like MIT. This may appear so-but...

    The Double-Slit Experiment

    I understand, but how does that translate to the physical result of the interference pattern being reduced to a normal one expected for particles?

    The Double-Slit Experiment

    I have always seen YouTube videos saying how an electron 'knows' when we are observing it but I always put that down to youtubers creating popular science (verging on science fiction) hype for more views. I suppose there is more science behind an electron behaving like a particle when we put a...

    Raymond George Vickson Sept 19 1942- May 13 2019

    I planned to surprise him and the other mentors who've helped me with something nice when I become a successful physicist or engineer....I suppose I won't get the chance:cry: If there is a heaven, no one deserves it more.

    Programs CS vs CE for AI

    Hello, I'm an Indian student just graduating from high school and am about to begin studies in Memorial University of Newfoundland. I'm not sure whether to pursue a computer science degree or a computer engineering degree- I'm fascinated by AI and have learned a bit of coding myself, any...

    Announcement PF5 is coming!

    I'd like to read a history of PF someday...this is by far my favorite website ever. True. Maybe I'll be inspired to do something so great one day too :D

    Announcement PF5 is coming!

    What gives you this motivation, time and energy to work on a site for 4 months straight? I couldn't think of doing something so selfless for so long...thanks though it's great to have PF

    Admissions Applying with high percentile/low scores

    yeah, they're totally onboard, Memorial is way better than anything I would get with JEE. I wanted to have a career in AI so comp. sci./comp. engineering. Although I haven't quite decided which one yet.

    Admissions Applying with high percentile/low scores

    I forgot to mention- the school is willing to write me any number of recommendation letters I need from whoever I need.

    Admissions Applying with high percentile/low scores

    Good day everyone, I'm an Indian student about to complete high school and I've applied for computer engineering in Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada. My class 10th GPA is 9.6 and I am expecting at least 85% in class 12th boards. This year the JEE (Indian SATs for engineering) was also...

    Admissions Undergraduate programs in Canada

    Really helpful- although it lists McGill as one of the most affordable universities. I don't think that's correct; still by far the most helpful thing I've seen yet so thank you

    Admissions Undergraduate programs in Canada

    Good day everyone, I'm an Indian student about to pass out from high school- The competition here is intense for the few truly good engineering colleges here so I'm looking for some guidance to studying in Canadian universities. I'd really appreciate your help- Thank you. a) I am expecting a...

    B Why the hate on determinants?

    They may be very useful. But any high-school level textbook in India has the most tedious calculations in this chapter including finding inverse matrices by hand, so the 'hatred' for it

    Hahaha, yes- but there's still a huge difference, 180 pages on the cat thread; and on the dog there's...:wink:

    For kitten lovers

    Why isn't there a dog-lovers forum as well? My dog is veeery offended- or maybe cats have begun their journey to world domination by getting to the physicists first and not allowing one to be created...seems fishy either way?:)o_O

    Denominator=0 in a 3d line

    Homework Statement I noticed that for a line parallel to z axis the equation is (x-a)/0 = (y-b)/0 = (z-c)/k = t. Homework Equations Any 3d geometry equations The Attempt at a Solution I can't quite grasp how to visualize this, also I can't see any constant like a 2d line parallel to x axis...

    Dependence of Coulomb's law on the medium

    Alright! seems like I haven't forgotten everything yet. What do I mark in an exam though? could I dispute it if they decided to say my answer is incorrect...by the way if you want to take a look at the jee paper for reference perhaps- here's a link...

    Apparent wavelength in Doppler's effect

    Can't afford any, Jee's in 20 days. Although I have the benefit of living in India, and thus knowing how to meditate deeply- so I'm getting by with 5 hours of sleep or so.

    Apparent wavelength in Doppler's effect

    Yeah, that's my mistake, Its 2 am here and I chose symbols arbitrarily while I was half asleep. Then while editing it to write the meaning to the symbols I noticed my blunder and corrected it. Really sorry about that, I really appreciate your help though :D

    Apparent wavelength in Doppler's effect

    Wonderful example! Its crystal clear now, Thank you very much :D

    Apparent wavelength in Doppler's effect

    I edited it to show what the symbols represent. There isn't any point trying to manipulate these equations further though since the answer already says its wrong to have u in the answer

    Apparent wavelength in Doppler's effect

    Homework Statement a source of sound of frequency f emits sound with speed v, is at rest. If an observer is moving at towards source with speed u, then wavelength of sound waves observed by the observer will be? Homework Equations f' = f(u+v)/u...(i) f' is apparent frequency, f is the real...
