I am about to graduate highschool and attend either the United States Coast Guard Academy or University of Central Florida and major in mechanical engineering. Would it be a good idea to purchase textbooks that aid in the subject area or should I just focus on my current schooling? If I do get the textbooks, please recommend ones that aren't insanely expensive.
>>7784201 >Would it be a good idea to purchase textbooks that aid in the subject area or should I just focus on my current schooling? Focus on your schooling. Make sure you're really solid on the stuff that's going to matter to you as a MechE: calculus & physics.
If you've got that down focus on English and public speaking. Why English? Because if you can't stand up in front of a roomful of coworkers and communicate your ideas clearly or write a clear engineering... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Everything has a 50/50 chance of happening. Either something happens or it doesn't, 50/50. A dice might roll on a certain number or it won't, 50/50. Literally everything can be deduced to 50/50 probability in life.
>>7784051 Stupid faggot. You take the powers of the number, say 2 and you add the digits. 1, 2, 4, 8, 16= 1+6= 7 for the number 2.
I discovered this literally 4 years ago. I've also found a proof that in base N, numbers containing dividers of N-1 are recurring For 3: > 1 3 9 9 9 9 For 6 (it contains 3 as a divider) > 1 6 9 9 9 9 And this also works in every other basis.
What would be the bare-minimum chemical, gravitational, geological, ect requirements of a SUSTAINABLE habitable exo-solar planet? Presuming humans with roughly the technology you'd commonly find now? Also what would it look like?
Or in other terms, what would an exosolar planet with the most hostile conditions possible, still 'turn a profit' or otherwise be self-sufficient look like. I know we can keep 1000 people around in McMurdo with imports and if we really wanted to.
>>7784043 >chemical Anything goes. Even if the planet is covered in hydrazine, that'd be a problem, but a solvable problem.
>gravitational Literally anything below ~2-3 g's works great.
>etc it's highly desirable for the environment to have a surface pressure below 10 bar, temperature below 60C (if there's atmosphere), and not contain a bath or liquid,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'd say even 1.8Gs is still too high. It might work while you're in the spin thing NASA has, but you'd probably have a heart attack if you did anything physical because your heart now has to work much harder to pump the blood around your body.
I don't study condensed matter in particular, but I have experience in a lab that has done some incredible research in recent years, and I'm more or less familiar with the theory. I attended the Prospects in Theoretical Physics lectures held by Princeton and IAS in 2015, which was on quantum matter. https://static.ias.edu/pitp/2015//home.html
Topological band theory is a HUGE development in condensed matter, and the kind of materials that are being created (which host novel properties) could prove very very useful to advanced electronic systems. I really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Does pear review really work? How many researchers actually have the time and the resources to attempt to reproduce other researchers' results? I imagine most of the pear reviewers just read the papers and if they appear plausible, they are accepted.
Depends. When different labs around the work beforehand agree to all perform the same experiments for the sake of truth then it works.
If you do something on your own and publish then I doubt anyone would waste their time checking your results, much less replicating the experiment.
There is no glory if you are not the first, so if you are the only 'first' no one will give a shit about reviewing your thing. But if various labs... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I think that its mainly a problem in social sciences and maybe medicine.
I'm a PhD graduate student in chemistry and I reproduce other people's research constantly. For example: I read a paper with a cool molecule that I feel like attaching to one of my molecules. I follow their procedure as they wrote it, and if I don't get what they got, then something is really wrong and immediately noticeable.
