An academic degree is a qualification awarded to students upon successful completion of a course of study in higher education, usually at a college or university. These institutions commonly offer degrees at various levels, usually including bachelor's, master's and doctorates, often alongside other academic certificates and professional degrees. The most common undergraduate degree is the bachelor's degree, although in some countries there are lower level higher education qualifications that are also titled degrees (e.g. associate degrees and foundation degrees).
Consider,
I am self-studying;
My interest is on the horizontal asymptote, now considering the degree of polynomial and leading coefficients, i have
##y=\dfrac{2}{1} =2## Therefore ##y=2## is the horizontal asymptote.
The part that i do not seem to get is (i already checked this on desmos)...

Just as an aside, my father did one under a now ancient cadet-type scheme. It was accelerated a bit due to WW2, and he was a technical sergeant in the Air Force, and, so I...
Say we have the following conditions:
For an any degree polynomial with integer coefficients, the root of the polynomial is n. There should be infinite polynomials that satisfy this condition. What is the general way to generate one of the polynomial?
Hi there,
I need some guidance regarding a personal ambition of mine. I am currently working as an actuary in the insurance field in my native country (not the U.S. nor Canada) after having taken undergraduate courses in mathematics and physics some 6 years ago. And though I get to use my...
Hi folks,
50 odd years ago I did a physics degree - wonder if anything interesting has happened since. Logged in a while ago, but seems lost. Worked in signal processing, still do the odd wee research contract. Nothing right now, thought I would have a look in here.
I'm trying to design a mechanism to translate reciprocating motion into a 45 degree rotation.
Here's the idea:
A pin will push against the part marked in red, causing part of the desired rotation. Then, when the pin is pulled back, its interaction with the blue part will complete a 45 degree...
I am seeing conflicting definitions of degree of freedom in my textbook. If I look at the definition given as per screenshot below then it is the number of independent terms/variables/coordinates used to define the energy of a molecule. But, if I look at the statement of Equipartition of energy...
I know this might be a stupid question, but I am serious. Some of my friends are in graduate programs not much related to their major (a number of my friends majored in math but are in computer science grad programs, and vice versa), so I am curious whether the same holds for physics. In my...
Hi everyone,
I finished M.Sc Physics by "Research" at a UK university during the academic year of 2015. I am an international student from India.
As I did not do well in my oral presentation defending my M.Sc thesis (but it was not worst), as a result, I got a pass degree. Before the day or...
Hello. I am a non-traditional undergrad, currently conducting materials and electrochemistry research (optics, photonics, semiconductors, energy storage). Before going to college (post-secondary), I had extensive experience in bioinformatics and biomolecular research.
Although it is not yet the...
I recently graduated last year with a BS in Physics.
To say that it was rough would be an understatement.
I started off my degree very well, getting nearly all A's and A-'s. My performance would decline for various reasons, though mostly due to mental health which spiraled and became a bad...
Hi everyone! I am looking for advice on what courses I should take to better flush out my degree/be more versatile.
Currently, I am going into my sophomore year in Applied Mathematics. I originally wanted to change into a Math/CS degree, but it was full, so I had to settle with taking the...
Hello. I am a little confused with the definition of degree of freedom, since i always count it wrong when it is necessary:
Is it the number of coord?inates necessary to describe the problem, or the number of independent coordinates
I ask this because, for example, see this problem:
A rotator...
I am currently on track to do a degree in Physics and Philosophy next academic year in the UK, but have been recently thinking about switching my application to Mathematics and Philosophy. (I am aware I could switch to a theoretical physics, or a maths and physics degree, but then I couldn't do...
Hello friends,
Is it a waste of time to get both a degree and certificate in the same field? If for example I received a graduate certificate and a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering, does having a flow blown masters degree sort of overwrite the certificate credential?
While it's nice to...
I already have an MSc from outside the EU. But, I also have an incomplete CS degree from Poland which I dropped out of.
European Ph.D. schools often ask for a CV, not "all the transcript from all the attended programs" as they ask in North America.
Therefore, can I skip the information...
so guys, I had to drop out of college due to financial problems and could could not really complete higher secondary school education(Alevels) until last year. I passed with decent grades(A*,A,A) I hope to join a university in the fall of 2022 and earn a bachelors degree in mechanical...
Can someone please tell me what is the chemistry textbook that available about degree of ionization?
I use Chemistry the Central Science textbook by Brown. Unfortunately I couldn't find about degree of ionization in this textbook.
Degree of ionization is studied in undergraduate of Mechanical...
Is getting a masters degree in physics worth it or is anything short of a PhD at the same level as a bachelors when it comes to job types and prospects?
This is the problem I am working on at the moment. The question states that the bar is at rest in this state. At a 60 degree angle to the horizontal and supported by the vertical spring at B.
Small oscillations are introduced and I am required to find the equation of motion and the natural...
Currently, I am still in community college but I am not confident of getting admitted/accepted to Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) next year, although I've applied this fall as a transfer applicant. I want to know if there's a good school to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (Online) degree with...
I am studying mathematics as bachelor in my second year. At the moment I am taking abstract algebra, analysis (measure and integration theory) and probability course. I don't know exactly what I want to do with maths but the applications in physics always have fascinated me. The next term I have...

We have Rayleigh's dissipation function, defined as
##
\mathcal{F}=\frac{1}{2} \sum_{i}\left(k_{x} v_{i x}^{2}+k_{y} v_{i j}^{2}+k_{z} v_{i z}^{2}\right)
##
Also we have transformation equations to generalized coordinates as
##\begin{aligned} \mathbf{r}_{1} &=\mathbf{r}_{1}\left(q_{1}, q_{2}...
Hi, I'm interested in doing research in theoretical cosmology (the kind or work hawking did). Should I do an undergraduate degree in mathematics or physics? I'm in the UK so I can't do a double major. I'm well aware of the fact that interests change a LOT later on, but ideally which one is...
Hello, I hold a BS in mathematics and want to pursue a career in physics. Is there any way where I can directly join a physics grad program from my current background? What are the options available? And would it be better to pursue an MS in applied math and then switch to physics? Would a good...
I'm looking for a survey, research or some statistics that shows in which university faculty climate skeptics are more or less present. Same for level of degree. I found only some according to the political orientation but nothing about the above. Did I miss something? If so, can you please...
I need advice in writing statement of purpose, particularly on my field of interest. I come from an undergraduate university which there is nothing much going on, just take courses and lab work, no research or anything like that available, hence I don't really have enough experience to describe...

Hello,
Is it possible to enroll in a graduate program in physics if I have an an undergraduate degree in architecture? Or is an undergraduate degree in physics- or in a related field- required to qualify?
(Assuming that I have studied extensively physics (alone) while obtaining my degree in...
So I decided to go back to community college nearby and enroll in this IT associate degree program. However, I'm wondering is a associate degree good enough to get my foot in the door or should I do certs? By the way I don't have any IT experience.
hi all,
Fairly old student here looking to go back and follow my life long dream of geting into physics. My goal is to eventually move into the study of theoretical physics, cosmology, that type of the stuff. So the things I am really interested in are Theory of Relativity, string theory...
