    Programming difficulties

    thanks Thanks Crosson. I feel you are very true about discrete math and puzzles. I struggled a lot in those areas too. I realize that I never really stick with a problem or a puzzle long enough to solve it. I'll have to change that. So how much time do you think I'll require to write a...

    Programming difficulties

    I have just completed my first year in computer science. In it, among other subjects like math we had one paper based on the C language. But i think i am going to fail in that subject. So i have to get strong in it before my next attept which is approx 4 months away. Also, this sem...

    Working of BJT as an amplifier: concept

    Thanks for your efforts, but it leaves my question un answered: Why does a small change in base current result in a large change in collecter current? Again please lay emphasis on the flow of electrons.

    Working of BJT as an amplifier: concept

    How does a small change in base current result in a large change in collector current in a BJT? Please explain in terms of movement of electrons (in NPN). Most textbooks I have referred say that the reason is low resistance of emitter-base and high resistance of collecter-base. However i cannot...

    Problem with my universe!

    Is this situation analogous to two magnets (or charges/poles) kept in vacuum with zero gravity (for cutting out external effects)? Will such two magnets also attract each other (assuming they are of opposite polarities) over an infinite distance?

    Regarding the discovery of quantum theory

    Why did Max Planck think that energy ought to be radiated in quantas? What were the shortcomings of the earlier theories that made the Quantum Theory a necessity. For example, the shortcomings in Galileo's model of planetary motion was that it could not explain why did the planets revolve around...

    Problem with my universe!

    In his book "The Brief History Of Time", Stephen Hawking says that if the universe is finite, as assumed by Newton et al, the astronomical bodies would fall on one point. Now I am having a really tough time imagining this. Wouldnt the gravitational force be too weak to pull these bodies on one...
