What is Correction: Definition and 202 Discussions
A correction fluid is an opaque, usually white fluid applied to paper to mask errors in text. Once dried, it can be handwritten or typed upon. It is typically packaged in small bottles, lids attached to brushes (or triangular pieces of foam) that dip into the fluid. The brush applies the fluid to the paper.
Less commonly, the fluid's fumes are inhaled to create dizziness, tachycardia and euphoria, sometimes producing adverse effects.
Before the invention of word processors, correction fluid greatly facilitated the production of typewritten documents. One of the first forms of correction fluid was invented in 1956 by American secretary Bette Nesmith Graham, founder of Liquid Paper. With the advent of colored paper stocks for office use, manufacturers began producing their fluids in various matching colors, particularly reds, blues and yellows.
Hello! This should be an easy calculation, but I want to make sure as the result seems a bit weird. Say I have an individual atom, for which I know the energy with a given uncertainty. In my case say I have ##1000 \pm 2.5## eV. Lets say that I perform collinear spectroscopy on this atom (for...
We know that we need to go to 5th order in perturbation theory to match 10 decimals of g-2 for electron, theory vs. experiment. But let us not assume QED is pure and independent, but it's a lower energy limit of GSW (not Green-Schwartz-Witten from superstrings) electroweak theory. Has anyone...

It is now generally believed that information is preserved in black-hole evaporation.
This means that the predictions of quantum mechanics are correct whereas Hawking's original argument that relied on general relativity must be corrected.
However, views differ as to how...

Given the unperturbed Hamiltonian ##H^0## and a small perturbating potential V. We have solved the original problem and have gotten a set of eigenvectors and eigenvalues of ##H^0##, and, say, two are degenerate:

I recently got a new correction tape. When I was staring at it today (ya I knew I should be studying for calc2), I noticed that the gear ratio between the two gears was notable and fixed. In particular, the bigger gear that unrolls the tape has more teeth than the smaller gear that rolls up the...
What if the value of X is not integer, such as P(X < 1.2)?
a) Will the continuity correction be P(X < 1.2 - 0.5) = P(X < 0.7)?
or
b) Will the continuity correction be P(X < 1.2 - 0.05) = P(X < 1.15)?
or
c) Something else?
Thanks

Laplace pointed out that the variation in pressure happens continuously and quickly. As it happens quickly, there is no time for heat exchange. This makes it adiabatic. But Newton believed it to be isothermal.
Why isn't it isothermal but adiabatic? Why is there a change in temperature?

Let's focus on the degenerate case.

In the classical electromagnetic field theory, the field density of energy is given by:
