    Hello Everyone,
    I am over 60 (yes, there still is life there), and have a lifelong interest in Physics.
    As one of my teachers used to say, "Physics is Fun!"
    These days i am playing around with raspberry pi computers, using the camera module as a video doorbell, and in the process learning bits of Python.

    Thanks jedishrfu,
    Where should i post a question about the design of a Helmholtz coil? I have solved the equations but get an unlikely answer. Could be maths mistakes or misunderstanding the necessary steps. Or just being an idiot.
    Electrical Engineering i thought?

    Try Introductory Physics Homework forum as your question is very similar to an actual homework question.

    You'll be given the option to fill in a homework template where you state the problem and its parameters, the equations and you work. The work part is the key part where mentors will review what you did and suggest fixes etc...
