I dont know why, but i'm currently just so unmotivated and lazy in college right now.
Im going to be a junior, and I did really good during my freshmen year, pretty much getting all As or A-'s.
And then, in my sophomore year everything went to ****.
I dont have any explanation whatsoever...
haha i ve actually never had an interview. IM just a sophomore in college majoring in EE, but after taking some required programming courses, i am heavily considering switching or double majoring.
My TA in one of my intro classes who is a senior shared some types of linked list questions asked...
Ok so for me, a job interview is still a while away, and im not even sure if i will major in CS.
But anyways, i've heard from my TAs that in their job interviews with microsoft and such, they are usually asked strange programming questions mostly involving linked lists, and riddles.
I'm sure there is some underlying reason, but i cnanot pinpoint it exactly.
The best way i can say it is that i had no specific goals, which lead to lack of inspiration/motivation, which lead to laziness/slacker but still that doesn't sound good at all.
It makes me sound like an as$shole...
first of all, i am an aspiring EE student. At my school (as with many), students must actually apply to the engineering school usually at the end of their sophomore year. There are exceptions, such as early admission or direct freshmen admission, but most just do sophomore year.
Ok so i kind...
well the main thing is for ee I want to concentrate in wireless communications which involves alot of electromagnetics. And the main reason why I want to double up in physics is because it gives me the chance to go more in depth into what I want to do with EE. So in the end, the physics major...
you wont be homeless, i was just exaggerating.
If you major in physics, aside from becoming a high school teacher, it will be alot harder to find a better job.
But like everyone else says, its alot easier to find a job as an actual physicist with a masters or phd
The mathematics for qm can be extremely rigorous; for example going into quantum field theory and relativistic qm the math may be more rigorous than phd level mathematics.
However, if you want specifics, for introductory quantum mechanics you are going to need experience in particularly these...
Ok first of all Im going to say that I am not doing EE because im afraid that ill be homeless if i just do physics.
I am genuinely interested in both.
At first I didnt know what I was going to do, but after taking physics 2 (basic EM), i knew I really wanted to go further into electronics...
is the best way to study math and science really just to do tons of practice problems?
BEcause ive always been told by my teachers, especially when preparing for standardized tests to do as many problems as possible.
Is this really the most effective way to become "good" at math and science?
This is what i dont get for things spinning in circles.
So let's say you tie a mass to the end of a string, and you start swinging the string around in a circle with a constant speed. In the absence of air resistance, then the net force on the mass would be the centripetal force provided by...
well dont worry i found out a way anyways.
so i got:
L(y) = 8/s(s^2 + 4) + (11s + 5)/(s^2 + 4)
i wont type it all out cause it's annoying, but what i did was i partial fraction decomposed 8/s(s^2 + 4) and i expanded all the terms and equated coeficcients cause i hate dealing with complex...
find solution using laplace transforms
y'' + 4y = 8
alright, so i did the laplace transform of both sides and i get
(s^2 + 4)L(y) - 11s - 5 = 8/s
so i isolate L(y) and i get this expression:
L(y) = (11s^2 + 5s + 8)/(s*(s^2 + 4))
however, the textbook...
A. At a particular instant, a particle of mass M = 3 kg is at the position (x,y,z) = (4,4,6) m and has velocity (2,1,-2) m/s.
B. An identical particle is placed at (x,y,z) = (-4,-4,-6) m, with velocity (-2,-1,2) m/s.
Find the angular momentum of the pair of particles about the origin...
so, list some good textbooks for undergraduate math and science.
of course early transcendentals by james steward will probably be on everyone's list for math, but let's try to get some new names.
i would say physics for scientists and engineers by serway and beichner is extremely well...
well, it is the night before, but i feel so prepared for some reason.
Ive been studying regularly for the past week, which works way better than cramming the night before.
i dunno, i feel like i just get it.
It clicks with me, but im nervous also.
this midterm is 40 percent of my final...
so, how analogous do u think a person about to take a test and an athlete about to compete is?
Do you guys think warming up right before a test, by doing practice problems and such, can have a dramatic effect like that of an athlete stretching before a competition?
well, like i said, i just noticed, so im not jumping into this idea yet.
BUt, i am still wondering if the extra work will be rewarded in the end?
i just have a hunch that it probably wont, but what do you guys think?
will it make job hunting easier?
So i was on my school's website and i noticed that the general education requirements for chemE and materials science is EXACTLY the same.
I also think i can be finished with all of the general ed requirements at the end of this year, since i got a head start with AP classes last year.
but if you can say the reaction force to gravity is gravity, how can you say the reaction force to friction is friction?
so if you push the book lightly foward and it doesnt move, there must be a frictional force opposing the force of your hand. But your hand and the friction are not action...
for example, a book is at rest on a table.
One might say that the normal force is the reaction force.
BUt reaction forces always have to be equal in magnitude, and you put an object on the book, then the normal force would increase to keep the book at rest, therefore the normal force is...
