    Is anyone of you learning Statistical Mechanics ? come and let's learn together

    is anyone of you learning Statistical Mechanics ? come and let's learn together!!! :biggrin: haha, I am currently taking statistical mechanics in my undergraduate 2nd year. This subject is so interesting! I would like to invite you all to discuss and debate about the our understanding of...

    C/++/# Is it POSSIBLE to integrate C++ with WITec Project 1.88? call for help~ haha

    ya, the problem is that, the data is saved in "WIP.file", which is only for the solfware!!! hmm ... is "WIP.file" built up from usual files like .txt ???:yuck:

    How can the Wimshurst machine generate a very HIGH voltage?

    It is so surprising that athe Wimshurst machine can generate up tp 1,000,000 voltage with the size of 50 cm! As I know, in order to generate such a high voltage on its 2 terminals, there must be a very large quantity of charges being "collected and stored" in the Leyden Jars. Am I right...

    Science, a game for Young men?

    so, shall we speed up to get a phD before we reach 26? Or just "step-by-step"?

    Who are the Greatest Physicists in this century?

    so, today, we have NO physicists ranked at the same height as those I listed (Max Plank ... ...) Am I right? Why not Stephen Hawking? People said he is today's Einstein!!!

    Who are the Greatest Physicists in this century?

    :bugeye: Last century we have Max Plank, Einstein, Heisenberg, Bohr, Schrodingers, de Broglie, Fermi and so on (so many!) great physicisys. So, who do we have in this century? Stephen Hawking?

    Electromagnetics (solenoid question)

    usually, the solenoid we study in university text books is ideal. That is, the diameter of the solenoid is very small compared to its length. This ideal solenoid has one important property: The magnatics field generated (when there is current) is "ALMOST" ZERO everywhere outside the...

    Science, a game for Young men?

    people said that most great ideas and developments in sciences (especially physics and mathematics) are made by young men. For example, Einstein, Heisenberg, Newton, Ramanujan, and so on. Nowadays, we see that most peiople get their phD at nearly 28. Do you think 28 is stilla Golden...

    Do yu prefer studying in midnight to in morning?

    hi my friends! I just want to ask, do you like studying in midnight? I found that, I can concentrate better in midnight, and in afternoon I always feel sleepy! For me, I prefer studying in midnight because I can HIGHLY concentrate in that time!!! But as I know, working or studying in...

    Why every textbooks put the light source in the horizontal line?

    in the diffraction experiment, the light source and the slit are in the same horizonatal line. My question is, if the light source is placed at another position which is no longer in the previous horizontal line, would we still get the same diffraction pattern? Will the diffraction pattern...

    Light electromagnetic?

    hi row, I think your question is, why the photon does not deflect, even though it is composed of electromagnetic field. My idea is, because the photon carries No charge, hence it will not "feel" the external electric field. Twukwuw.

    What are the classical Textbooks for quantum mechanics and electromagnetism?

    What are the "classical Textbooks" for quantum mechanics and electromagnetism??? hi, I want to use my vacations to study quantum mechanics and eletromagnetism. Are there any "classical textbook" for these 2 subjects, like "Goldstein classical mechanics" for mechanics? Thanks, Twukwu.

    At what age you complete your phD?

    hi Dimitry Terryn, here in Malaysia, usually peope start their first year undergraduate at the age of 20! undergraduate: 20-->23 Master: 24-->25 phD: 3 --5 years haha, I dont know why the government let people here start their undergraduate study so late... ... anyway, I am studying my...

    As I know, people completed their undergraduate study at 19-20 in last century. Is it true?

    At what age you complete your phD?

    hi, At what age you competed your phD? As I have calculated, I would have completed my phD right at the age of 28, is it too LATE? I have heard that some professors completed their phD at 23 or even 21. terrible.. ... Twukwuw.

    Would an electron use up its kinetic energy after competing a circuit?

    oh I see.... That means, along the way, the elctrons actually always maintain their kinetic energy at "small magnitude" due to collisions. In other words, the gain in kietic energy (from the battery) is always balanced out by the loss of heat in collisions, roughly speaking. Moreover, the...

    What guarantee Kirchoff's law of potential difference?

    Kirchoff's law states that, the potential difference along a closed circuit must be ZERO. Now, lets do a simple question 1. We have a simple circuit consists of INDUCTOR and Voltage source-->V=V.sin(wt) At any instant, why must the voltage supplied equal the voltage generated in the...

    Would an electron use up its kinetic energy after competing a circuit?

    I was told that, in an simple electronic circuit (consist of resistor and battery), the power supplied by the battery must be equal to the power (heat) dissipated by the resistor. In form of equation: VI = RI^2 ,where V=voltage supplied by the battery, I=current, R=resistence. I find...

    Programs How enough is a phD scholarship? Would we save NO MONEY after 5 years of phD study?

    thanks for your quick reply Dr Transport, I really appreaciate it. In fact now I am so confused, about the future. Although studying physicis is my dream, but, the 5 years of jobless period is really a difficult time for me. I need as many imformation as possible. Anyway, thanks so much...

    hi, I am not an US citizen, but have a plan to study phD in US. However, I have financial problem. My question is: If I am awarded a phD scholarship, is there still any other "financial sources" that I can work for to earn some more money? If I spend just enough for basic living...

    Why must the eletric field inside a conductor equal ZERO?

    oh..... Thanks to you all ladies/guys! You have given me a clear picture of what a conductor is and whe logic behind the ZERO-E statement. At the time I post this dicsussion, I missed one point: there is a large amount of eletron sea residing IN the conductor. As can be understood, these...

    Are professorships guaranteed to those very excellent theoretical physicists?

    I want to be a professor in theoretical physics, but, people said that this position is limited. My question is, would a University recruit a excellent theoretical professor, even when there has been SO MANY theoretical physicist? I worry that, because theoretical physicists bring NO...

    Ampere's Law, must the current extend to infinity?

    Ampere's law states that, the closed integral of B over the loop enclosed it equals uI, where u = permeability of the material and I = current "passing" through the loop. I feel confused, because, should the current be extended to infinity? I mean, when we have an infinite wire of current...
