What is Exercise: Definition and 576 Discussions

Exercise is any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness.It is performed for various reasons, to aid growth and improve strength, preventing aging, developing muscles and the cardiovascular system, honing athletic skills, weight loss or maintenance, improving health and also for enjoyment. Many individuals choose to exercise outdoors where they can congregate in groups, socialize, and enhance well-being.In terms of health benefits, the amount of recommended exercise depends upon the goal, the type of exercise, and the age of the person. Even doing a small amount of exercise is healthier than doing none.

    Zwienbach mastering quantum mechanics exercise 6.2 (time independence of a stationary state)

    I can write $$\psi(x,t_0) =\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}(e^{\frac{-iE_1}{\hbar}t_0}\psi_1(x) +e^{\frac{-iE_2}{\hbar}t_0}\psi_2(x))$$ for the second coefficient to be -1 i need ## -1=e^{-i\pi}=e^{\frac{-iE_2}{\hbar}t_0} ## so ##t_0=\frac{\pi\hbar}{E_2}## and the above equation becomes $$\psi(x,t_0)...

    Chemistry FeCO3 oxidation formulation help

    Hi there, I did an exercise and when we corrected it I realised that the oxidation number of Fe was (ll) but I don't know how can I find it. The common name is iron (ll) nitrate and the other name, that I don't know how is called because i study this in basque, is iron (2+) nitrate trioxide (2-)

    Understanding Work-Energy Theorem: Solving an Exercise with Different Solutions

    My solution is different from the official solution and I don't understand what I did wrong. Here is my solution: The magnitude of the initial velocity is ##|v_0| = 12.0~\rm{m/s}##, so the vertical component of the initial velocity is ##v_{0-y} = (12.0 \sin{25^{\circ}})~\rm{m/s}##.

    Using air core solenoids in a lab exercise

    I found a box of air core solenoids and was hoping someone could me think of a useful lab to use them for. They are about 700 turns each. They carry 7 to 10 amps. However I think I think I would only be able to provide 3 amps because of the power supplies I have. I would like to use them to do...

    Basic exercise of path integral

    In the book it is mentioned that, in path c, the line integral would be: $$\int \vec{F}\cdot \vec{dr} = A \int_{1}^{0}xy dx = A\int_1^0 x dx = -\dfrac{A}{2}$$. but I think that dx is negative in that case, the result would be positive, right?
