I'm studying Civil Engineering here in Canada. I'm interested in doing my masters somewhere in Europe but i don't know how it will work out.
I'm interested in structural/infrastructure branch of civil engineering and every country/area have their own laws and regulations regarding building...
Hello good people of PF
I'm going into my third year of undergrad civil engineering in university. So far my GPA is only 2.5/4 I have been lazy the past 2 years but I know i am capable of high marks..
After undergrad, I`m planning to get a Masters degree in the same field. I haven`t done...
I'm hoping someone can answer this for me.
I am in Ottawa, Canada and right now it is almost 2 am. I am about to go to sleep but can't help to notice why the sky is so unusually bright. It is a light peachy color. I can see the grass outside my house without any lights, it is...
I'm currently finishing up my third semester in Civil Engineering. Recently a couple of my friends switched from standard "Civil Engineering" to "Civil Engineering with Concentration in Management" So this got me thinking if I should switch..
If i switch, I would not be taking...
[SOLVED] Why can't i cancel this term?
The function g(x) is stated in the first line.
The question asks for g' when x=0
In the third line, i canceled e^x from both terms in the expression. The TA wrote that i can't do that. I forgot to ask him...
I'm writing the Euclid contest this April so i went to their http://www.cmc.uwaterloo.ca/english/contests/euclid.shtml" [Broken] and downloaded the 2007 version. I don't know how to solve problems similar to questions 7. b), 8. b), and 10. I have never been taught how to do these problem so I'm...
I have to fill out an admission informations form.
One of the questions:
3. Personality Traits
Engineering is a profession to which individuals can contribute in various ways. Some engineers are entrepreneurial; some are very creative and original; while others are more conservative and...
[SOLVED] polynomial with two unknowns
The graph of f(x)= 3x^4 + 14x^3 + px^2 + qx + 24 has x-intercepts -4 and 2. Determine the function.
The Attempt at a Solution
I could solve it if there were only one unknown but i don't know how to do it if there are two...
if there is a spring between two boxes of different masses, and the spring is compressed, with energy stored, then if the i let go of the boxes at exactly the same time, will the spring exert the same amount of force on both of the boxes? or does the force it exerts on the boxes is mass Dependant?
[SOLVED] question about light
True or False question
5. If a Young’s double-slit apparatus, having operated in
air, were to be submerged in water, the fringe pattern
would become less spread out.
The Attempt at a Solution
My driving instructor told me that if you know you are gonna crash into another car, then brake right before contact. Wouldn't it make more sense start to brake as early as possible because it would decrease velocity which would decrese the force of impact?
If the gravitational field strenght is weaker than that of earth, then less force is required to do a certain amount of work than required on earth. So my question is, Would our movements be faster? Like dribbling and hand movements and running?
If a glass of water is resting on a table and there is a piece of paper or cloth or whatever under the glass, and you pull the paper/cloth really fast, the glass does not move. Can someone please explain the physics of this to me. THNX
I am in Grd.12 in High School. For my physics class, our teacher gave us a project where you read a novel or book related to physics and you answer some questions on it. Since I am interested in astronomy (stars, galaxies, supernovas etc) i wanted to read an astronomy book. So can you...
i am doing a physics project where you have to draw a situation and explain as much physics as possible. So me and my friends anre doing a car crash, actually a car hitting a pole. And we want to know a formula to calculate how much the pole will be pushed back/dented or if broken from base.
1.the mass and acceleration is given and asks for tension in cable. What is a formula i could use.
2.in another question initial speed, air resistance, time and speed is given, what is a formula i could use for this question to solve for mass.
