    Programs Physics(astronomy) major vs engineer major

    I was in the same predicament. My university offered a double major in electrical engineering and physics. In undergrad, the EE learns basic mechanics and electromagnetics. Mechanical subs emag for statics and dynamics and thermo. The physics goes through thermo, special relativity, intermediate...

    Possible to Specialize in General Relativity?

    I'm about to start my senior year at university pursuing a double major in physics and electrical engineering. I decided recently that I wanted to go to graduate school for physics so I started thinking about the area I would like to specialize in. My current university does most of its research...

    Easiest Way to Raise DC Source's Voltage?

    DC, sorry, I'll fix that. And I have a some experience with HV (up to about 500V), but its all been in a lab with HV power supplies. And that's just an example voltage, it wouldn't necessarily be that high. But I'm not sure I would call 120V "high voltage". The IEC defines HV for DC being in...

    Easiest Way to Raise DC Source's Voltage?

    What would be the easiest way to raise the voltage of a DC source? (Mainly batteries) For example, say I have a 9V battery and would like to convert it to 120VDC. What would be the best way of doing this without just hooking 13 or 14 9V batteries is series? If this is impractical, please feel...

    Good Book for Learning about Motors/Generators

    I'm a junior in electrical engineering so I have a good knowledge of the physics of electromagnetism. However, I do not take my electric power and machines class for another two semesters and am interested in learning about AC/DC motors and generators in my spare time. Can anyone recommend any...
