In medicine, confusion is the quality or state of being bewildered or unclear. The term "acute mental confusion" is often used interchangeably with delirium in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems and the Medical Subject Headings publications to describe the pathology. These refer to the loss of orientation, or the ability to place oneself correctly in the world by time, location and personal identity. Mental confusion is sometimes accompanied by disordered consciousness (the loss of linear thinking) and memory loss (the inability to correctly recall previous events or learn new material). The term is from Latin: confusĭo, -ōnis, from confundere: "to pour together", "to mingle together", "to confuse".
Hii,
I am of +26 years old. I am confused whether I should pursue PhD in India or look for research jobs. I like to read but I am not meticulous smart, I get confused easily and things doesn't make sense to me easily until I put my extra efforts. Kindly help me to choose a career trajectory. I...
hi, I am a physics student in grade eleven. I do not have much knowledge of physics but I have a doubt:
apart from the maths and the experiments, shouldn't larger masses be attracted to Earth's gravity rather than be attracted the same regardless of mass? if we had a scenario where we have...
Hi, PF
Integration by parts is pointed out this way:
Suppose that ##U(x)## and ##V(x)## are two differentiable functions. According to the Product Rule,
$$\displaystyle\frac{d}{dx}\big(U(x)V(x)\big)=U(x)\displaystyle\frac{dV}{dx}+V(x)\displaystyle\frac{dU}{dx}$$
Integrating both sides of...
Hello! I am building a bow-tie optical cavity, of finesse about 10,000. When I measure the transmitted signal out of the cavity, after aligning it, I see clear peaks, significantly higher than the background and pretty much single mode. I do see 2 other peaks, probably from other modes, but much...
Hello! I have 2 probabilities ##p_1## and ##p_2## which governs the probability of measuring some events. I measure event 1 N times and get ##N_1## counts and event 2 N times and get ##N_2## counts. Then I need to build the function ##A = \frac{N_1-N_2}{N_1+N_2}##. I am trying to estimate the...
Hello! I am trying to simulate the following experiment. It is a counting experiment where the probability of getting an event after a given trial is given by:
$$P = 2\left(\frac{a}{x}+\frac{b}{c}\right)^2\left(1-\cos\left(\frac{\pi x}{x_0}\right)\right)$$
where, ##a = 4\pi##, ##b = 2000\pi##...
I keep running into the issue of getting a different number of significant figures in my solutions than the official answers at the back of the book, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something or if the book is occasionally sloppy about significant figures.

Hello! I have a 2 level system given by:

I have the equations to calculate transmission probability, my problem is that the barrier is given in Volts not electron volts.
$$200V = e \cdot 200 eV = 3.2 \cdot 10^{-17} eV$$
I am not even sure if that's a correct conversion.
But if it is then this "barrier" is extremly small and 99.999%...
For this problem,
I don't understand why they are saying ##-1 < a < 1## since they are trying to find where ##f(x)## is continuous including the endpoints ##f(-1)## and ##f(1)##
Why is it not: ##-1 ≤ a ≤1##
Many thanks!
If the speed of light in the vacuum of empty space is the same for all observers, how can there be a Doppler effect on light? Doesn't the shift of color/frequency indicate a change in speed?

I refer to the tables on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_and_RNA_codon_tables

The k-th Pontrjagin class of a real vector bundle is defined as the 2k-Chern class of the complexified bundle. Therefor, a Pontrjagin class lives in cohomology with integer coefficients. But then the statement of Theorem 15.9 is that if the coefficient ring is taken to be a PID \Lambda...

I am not sure what I am doing wrong but dot product of a and b =/= |a||b| when I am trying to calculate it. Theta = 0:
dot product(a and b) = ax*bx + ay*by
|a||b|= sqrt((ax^2+ay^2)*(ax^2 + by^2)) = sqrt((ax*bx)^2 + (ax*by)^2 + (ay*bx)^2 + (ay*by)^2) =/= ax*bx + ay*by
What am I doing wrong?
If there is a car resting on a banked curve with angle theta, velocity v = 0, but N (normal)*sin(theta) > 0. So N*sin(theta) =/= (m*v^2)/r with v = 0. But my physics textbook just defined N*sin(theta) = (m*v^2)/r in banked curve. What is going on here?

The DFS in action doesn't relate to the pseudocode as you can see it. My confusion starts from dfs in action, step 4. I could write essay about it, but you can see it yourself as well and spot that algorithm and dfs in action doesn't match up properly. or is it only me?

Hi!
The problem clearly states that there is a surface charge density, which somehow gives rise to a potential.
The author has solved the Laplace equation in cylindrical coordinates and applied the equation to the problem.
So ##\nabla^2 V(r,\phi) = 0##, and ##V(a,\phi) = V_a(\phi)## (where...
