What is a homework/coursework "type" question? Good evening, Even after reading the Forum Guidelines, I am still not sure about what exactly is a homework/coursework "type" question. For me, the word "type" makes the term a little vague, because I think most questions/doubts about Physics can potentially look like having come from a textbook. If one looks in other sections such as "General Physics", one will find many questions that may resemble a homework assignment. None of my Physics questions I've posted here are really "homework assignments"; they are doubts that arise from curiosity; but, in order to ask a Physics doubt, it is generally necessary to formulate the question in a way that may look very much like a homework/coursework question. How can I tell when my question is homework/coursework "type"? Thank you in advance.
