Makes me laugh

  1. Dec 17, 2013 #1
    Everytime I go into the homework questions forum and look at threads started by people it always makes me laugh what threads have so many comments. In the introductory physics forum when it's a question on kinematics, there's always like 10 people that answer. As soon as there's something about magnetism, there's maybe 1 person that responds.

    Same goes in the calculus and beyond. When it's a simple integral like ##\int x^3dx## tons of people respond, but when it involves trig substitutions almost no one replies.

    Well anyway, it's just something I noticed and it makes me laugh.

    Why is it funny? Isn't it obvious that more people would know how to answer easier questions?
