    Random Generator in Excel 2013

    Assuming it is all in column A: =INDEX($A#:$A#,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA($A#:$A#)),1) Where # represent the row it is in. So if your list is from A1 to A5, it would be =INDEX($A1:$A5,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA($A1:$A5)),1)

    Mathematical tools for quantum mechanics

    Perhaps, it is the Physics that you don't understand? You can't just jump right into QM without a background in Physics.

    Computer Engineering VS Computer Science with very special condition

    Computer Engineering deals more with hardware design and simulation. The physics is more apparent in it (as well as the chemistry). The math is about the same for both majors. Computer Engineering is a mix of both Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Computer Science is more software...

    Computer Engineering VS Computer Science with very special condition

    Hello there Mohamed and welcome to PF! :) I am a 3rd year CE major so I hope I can point you to the right direction of what you want. You seem to want a bit of both CE and CS and I say it is great! A CS minor will help a lot for CE. What caught my eye was this: "I study very short hours (1-3...

    Computer Engineering vs Computer Science

    Hey there unilliterate! I am a 3rd year Computer Engineering student so hopefully I help you make a decision. Computer Engineering does require more math than Computer Science, but that is not to say that Computer Science math is any easier. It is pretty rigorous in its own light when it comes...

    Text Editor and Complier

    A small nice IDE is Code::blocks. I have it in my Windows OS. I usually code C++ but I am sure it works for C as well. Windows does have a text editor (default one is NotePad). If you want to write C code, you will have to save it as a .c extension. Then you can use your compiler to compile the...

    Teaching myself computer programming Where should I start?

    Hello there Marie Python is a good language to start off, since I heard it is a very easy language to learn. There are some colleges that start off with Java or C++. However if you have a goal in mind you want to accomplish in the long run, you should state it. Different languages are good for...

    Programming for beginners

    My university, as well as other Universities as well, start off with C++. The first programming language I ever learned (self-taught) was C#. C# helped me understand C++ even more. If you learn C++, you will be able to read some C code. Some syntax is different. Regarding Python, many people...

    Programs Math major can I still redeem myself?

    I really don't know much about Abstract Algebra nor analysis. However from what I read, I can say that don't ask if you can do it. Try harder and do your best. I am sure if you do need assistance with Real Analysis, you will seek it. Do what you have to do to make yourself better.

    Finding convergence/divergence of improper integral

    I don't know if you have gone over this, but you can compare it to \int\limits_1^\infty {\frac{1}{{{x^n}}}} If n<2, it is divergent. If n≥2, then it is convergent.

    Calculating forces using point charges.

    Are you familiar with Coulomb's law? This will help you out if you know that. Also you will need to split up the forces into x-y components.

    Good windows compiler for C

    A nice compiler for Windows would be Code::Blocks. I use it on my PC when I need to run some C++ code. This also works for C as well.

    Computer Engineering vs Computer Science ?

    You will deal with some hardware as a CS major, just not as much as a CE would. I would imagine that yes the research opportunities are far greater in CE (though don't quote me on it). Well each job/internship requires different skills and such. No doubt a minor in CS would help a lot when it...

    Computer Engineering vs Computer Science ?

    I am currently majoring in Computer Engineering. Ultimately it comes down to what you really want to do. Since you like video games and surfing the interwebs, I would say go for Computer Science. If you want to do something with video games, focus on video game design. Computer Engineering is...

    People ignore me and don't like me.

    The best thing I can say is start to be more social. I am quiet myself, but the important thing is to talk. Don't bother with what people think of you! People should accept you for who you are.

    PF going black on January 18th?

    I am strongly against this bill. I say we can blackout the site or atleast put something noticeable on the home page regarding SOPA and PIPA (like what Google is doing). If we do blackout the site, I say we have a chat day in chatzy! This bill cannot simply be ignored by PF. @Evo: Even though...
