Hey just curious about the profitability of a business degree. I hear MBA's are very popular, what about the bachelors though? And how do these stand next to degrees related to money?
2. A limit of F(x) says what we already know?

I've been looking in my book lately on discontinuitys and I realized that a number that can't possibly be in the domain of the function is what leads to holes in the range of the function. So when I look at things like these, assuming I can't factor my way around this so that there...
3. A limit of F(x) says what we already know?

I've been getting very annoyed with learning limits lately. Through direct substitution we can find the limit of something, I know that. F(x)= x + 2. Intuitively, I know that if I were to substitute 2 to x I would get 4. F(4)= 2+ 2 = 4. This appears to be correct. Likewise, the LIMIT of...

5. Physics Physics PhD Versatility?

Yeah, and I do love physics. And it too seems like a physics PhD is the only degree that might open all of these options for me
6. Physics Physics PhD Versatility?

Hey all, I've been contemplating PhD'ing in physics for a long time now. Originally I wanted to pursue this goal for my affinity to learning and interest in research. However, like other people in I've seen posting in this forum lately, I too have developed an strange fascination for finance...
7. Domain and range of a function help

I'm sorry I didn't mean linear. Heh, I had a feeling I was wording everything all wrong. so is F(x)=x2 the same as y=x2? or F(x)=mx+b is the same as y=mx+b ? Also any other graph-able equation you can think of. So in a t-table when x = a value, it will also give the value of y. And...
8. Domain and range of a function help

So I'm skipping pre-cal with full intentions of picking up on AP Calc. Our summer course work is taken from a book called preparing for calculus. After giving me some who-dad that I knew already everything changed in an instant. There's a little gap that isn't quiet filled. A function is...
9. Gain Muscle as a Skinny Guy - Advice & Tips

I didn't mean illegal or harmful chems. I meant things like creatin or the stuff they put in other muscle or weight gain helpers. Like drinks and what not. My current Work out is running to catch up to a bus every morning. A lot of walking around downtown. And a lot of thinking while I...
10. Gain Muscle as a Skinny Guy - Advice & Tips

Looking to gain muscle. MY parents are actually not in shape..at all. So I don't see why I don't have any weight..but I don't. I need a plan or something to go from 5'10 120 lbs to something a bit more sturdier. I don't want to hit the gym alot, and i don't mind chemicals, if they aren't very...
11. Laptop and community

So, recently I've noticed, here I am reading my "first book to c++" When I'm not really busy. However at these times, I'm not at home. So I'm working on grasping concepts while not quite getting practice. So I decided I should buy a laptop. What laptop would be fabulous for a 340 biweekly...
12. If and else question

just screen space? Is wasting it bad? Like..memory wise or? Just scrolling through code? I think it looks a little more organized
13. If and else question

So, in my C++ book it says only a single statement can be used in an if-else like if (blah==blahblah) cout<<blahblahblah else cout<<blah he ha unless you do if (blah==blahblah) { cout<<blahblahblah cout<<also blah } else { cout<<blah he ha cout<<blah le ha...
14. Inclined planes + vector questions

Oh. That makes so much more sense, because gravity only works straight down (to the middle of earth).So When i draw a vector going straight down for the hypotenuse I get that the object is being pulled down at this rate, and because of Newtons laws or normal force, its not falling straight down...
15. Inclined planes + vector questions

If i drew a vector perpendicular to the object? Then 9.8m/s^2*200kg
16. Inclined planes + vector questions

hmm..but wouldn't getting the normal force first work? Thengetting weight and using pythag rearranged to get the last bit work?
17. Inclined planes + vector questions

Thanks. Well I'm looking at my own drew up inclined plane thingy with a 200kg box on it. I know that if i draw a light straight down Il'll get the weight and hypot of another triangle. So what good is that hypot? isn't it a resultant vector already?
18. Inclined planes + vector questions

So, my physics teacher has made this VERY confusing. We use vectors. But for some reason I keep wanting to think the resultant vector is the ultimate vector for magnitude and direction of force,speed acceleration w/e. But for some reason I'm not seeing that Normal force is the force that...
19. Using USB flash drive for extra memory?

So, if i use this ready boost feature, will i be able to pull my drive otu when I'm done without it have any random crap on it?
20. Friction and normal force

Aha, so it has equilibrium. So its not really much of a vector, but the acceleration of gravity that would be can still be turned around and multipiled by the co to get the static or kinetic friction,right?
21. Friction and normal force

Woo that confused me ha. Sorry. Maybe I worded It kinda funny. So the normal force, is the contact for between two objects? That makes sense, so of course the weight of the object on the surface? If I'm correct the weight is the measure of the force of gravity on a certain mass. With gravity...
22. Friction and normal force

More or less just a general question. So if the normal force is pretty much the weight of the object (mass times acceleration of gravity) and then the friction is that times the coefficient? So basically weight is what causes MORE magnitude of friction? We take the force vector of gravity...
23. Acceleration problem. me vs book

oh my goodness i forgot all about sig figs. Thank you very much
24. Acceleration problem. me vs book

Homework Statement A bus is traveling at 30.0 km/h speeds up at a constant rate of 3.5 ms/^2. What velocity does it reach at 6.8 seconds later? book says 120.km/hour I get 115 km/hour Homework Equations Vf=Vi+a x delta t The Attempt at a Solution First I changed 30.0 km/hour to...
25. Help me help my diet

So, DaveC, and Proton Soup, say I moderate my self to say, a single 2 liter a day, I shouldn't have to worry...And sodas are a lot less likely to be the cause of getting diabetes?
26. Help me help my diet

I'm not looking for something very diety so to say. Like I'm not interested in losing wait (I'm far too skinny). My problem is a caffiene addiction. I drink a lot of soda. MY friend recently suggested i could get diabetes from the amount I drink, and I'm kinda scared about that. ( i know this...
27. Help me help my diet

So how about a better drink in general? To replace soda with?
28. Help me help my diet

I have a soda drinking problem. Basically, all I want to do is a find a healthier thing to drink. Due to lack of sleep and exercise i feel like i might be losing mental clarity, so perhaps something that's sort of a "Brain drink"? Anything good? green tea maybe?
29. Vectors and Physics

Alright thanks.. My thoughts were all correct. The diagram said exactly what i did in my first post kinda(i don't even remember what was in my first post..but yeah) Thanks guys
30. Vectors and Physics

So I was correct? It didn't travel with it. They were perpendiculer to one another..
31. Vectors and Physics

Why would it be longer? So the components of velocity aren't speed? The compnents of displacement are distance... Sorry, I'm still a little bit confused
32. Vectors and Physics

I've been going along in this physics book and I've been getting along in it. Vectors took me some time though, and i sitll have questions. So i understand how a vector "displacement" and be gained from a bunch of distances travelled, and i know the <x,y> components would simply be total east...
33. Want to open my own lab one day

I will not have a problem allocateing some funding to start off with. But I do have an interest in both PURE and APPLIED sciences. I sort of wanted to open the lab to a couple different sciences. And of course an engineering group for the more applied stuff. I sort of want it to hold...
34. Want to open my own lab one day

Indeed. But that's where my many other ideas can kick in. Thanks for answering this! Makes me very happy.
35. Want to open my own lab one day

Every now and then I entertain this thought. The more i study the sciences the more i want to continue studying. I've spent hundreds of dollars on books ranging from physics to mathematics to organic and biochemistry to electronics, I bought Kent's Mechnicals Engineer's Handbook today(mainly...
36. Physics Not so theoretical physicists

You're absolutely correct, and my fretting is quite rediculous. I'll go for scientist a PhD and everything, after that will be a matter of my determination. But what you're getting at though is...I can bring together my interests by simply working hard at it..like obtain PhD ...start...
37. Physics Not so theoretical physicists

Theoretics like Newtons formulas and Einsteins have been proven to be successful... I don't know how to really word what I'm trying to get at. My first interest in physics was stuff like Anti-Gravity, super conducters, quantum entanglement. Discoveries are good, its amazing and wonderful...
38. Physics Not so theoretical physicists

Thank you sir...QUICK QUICK..Tooooo ENGLISH FORUMS
39. Physics Not so theoretical physicists

Hi guys. I was surfing threads on this forum once again and i read a line that was like physicists aren't interested in mechanics..or else they'd be engineers.. And in other threads things like physics not being practicle. This is confounding. Physics..originally something of philosophy, not...
40. Do Camcorders/ Video camera have Sensors in them?

Of course it is..which is why I'm buying a kit to learn off of. But I figured I'd pick up some knowledge here too =]

42. Do Camcorders/ Video camera have Sensors in them?

Alright so after taking it apart some more. I can across a very interesting piece. Makes me think of a turbine(I know that it is not). At one end it has a white cap with 4 holes with metal rods that then pass through a short(very short) glass tube and then through some gears and into another...
43. Bicycles and their mad skillz

Well for like one step may only get you two feet, while going down on the pedal may take you several
44. Bicycles and their mad skillz

Alright. So I'm froob and must admit I don't quite understand the bicycle and how it seems to give you more for less, so to say. I figured the shape of a wheel and how the curves stand off from the ground sort of enable gravity to give an extra pull on it. How ever , when I went to look it up it...
45. Do Camcorders/ Video camera have Sensors in them?

Curious. I have a video camera and I've decided to take it apart. I posted a thread a while ago about building a robot, so It would be nice if somehow i could use something from this camera to give it "vision" or "Senses". So I want to know. Do these things have sensors in them? Is that how they...
46. I wanna build a robot

Hmm. I found this website and this http://letsmakerobots.com/start [Broken] Do you think that bot would be more invaluable to learning as a starter than a boe bot?
47. Why doesnt air go into space?

Earth's Gravity Is pulling even past the moon. The air would have to be "sucked" pretty far.
48. I wanna build a robot

I noticed the programming on it was like PBasic or something like that. I looked it up on google and apparently it is a really good starter kit. But I only know things about c++ and don't really want to learn another language and start getting them all tangled. Is there a programming language...
49. I wanna build a robot

Thanks guys for all these links... So, I've taken a look at the Boe-Bot. And I think one or two people here mentioned it. If I were to buy this kit ( I also want to add the crawler and gripper kit to it) How much would I be learning from it? Or should I get a more "difficult" kit? If i get...
50. I wanna build a robot

So I know little about engineering. But I do know a thing or two about programming in c++ now. I've disassembled many electronics (MANYMANYMANY) IN my house. Like we have all sorts of things I could just take apart. Since I know little about robots and engineering them I decided I'd also...
