    Undergrad in the UK or the USA

    I might pursue grad school in the US. How much do UK and US undergrad schools differ in terms of the syllabus. I've looked at the course framework of a number of leading universities in both countries: picked two of my choices(they are the "biggies" i know,no harm trying)...

    Undergrad in the UK or the USA

    Hello there I've heard that undergraduate course in Physics/Maths/Eng in universities in UK and US differ in a few ways. I could search through the websites of renowned Universities of both these countries, unfortunately, I have a big exam coming up soon, and do not have much time to do this...

    String Theory: a layman's explanation [joke]

    I would certainly agree to TheLizardKing(i am also a layman to this subject) Physics intrigues many of us, and when you hear of the theory of "everything", how are we to solve all the variables in life? And yea, maybe the universe is a dog, and how can we falsify that reason, if it "appears"...

    Renewable Energy- I have a Dream

    Free, clean energy perhaps Fusion energy, which is still very difficult to produce in a large scale. Is that categorised under nuclear physics? By the way, I'm currently studying for my HCS(High School Cert) which is equilvalent to the cambridge/london A-Levels. If i decide to do my...

    Schools Is admission/funding to US public graduate schools harder for international student?

    Is it easier for international students to be admitted into Colleges(Us) in Europe, for instance Germany or the UK? And funding???? All three countries have almost the same quality of studies and research, don't they?

    Factorising a differntiated equation

    I do not understand why is it so does not the chain rule state that dy/dx=dy/du *du/dx hence, when y= U^n dy/dx= (nu^n-1) * (du/dx) so v = (4x-3)^1/2 then dv/dx=1/2(4x-3)^(1/2 -1 ) *(4) =2(4x-3)^-1/2 (correction to my previous equation with that was...

    Factorising a differntiated equation

    Hello there, I'm quite weak in factorising functions,especially those with indices. I would appreciate any link on these kind of factorisation or even some tutoring on it. this is a question I'm stuck in. y=(2x+3)(4x-3)^1/2, show dy/dx can be written in the form kx/(4x-3)^1/2 my...

    Space physics

    I came across this term called space physics. It says that "Space physics, also known as space plasma physics, is the study of plasmas as they occur naturally in the universe." Is it cosmology or astrophysics. Or is it something different but under one of these branches!?

    Resolution of forces(tension force)

    I still don't get it. But correct me if I'm wrong, the vertical component is not distributed equally to bothe strings in the 2nd diagram. Thus, each string at different angles from the wall possess different magnitude for its vertical component(Fy).

    Resolution of forces(tension force)

    The two diagrams show a load hanging with 2 strings of the same size and type hanging from a flat plane. Find the tention on each string for both situations. I know that Fy of both strings in Diagram 1 are equal. Fy=Fy Thus the...
