Consider this equation:
Where A,B,C,x,y, and z are positive integers, x,y, and z being more than 2, and the largest common divisor of A,B, and C being 1.
Can this equation exist, and if it is impossible, why?
don't know if this is the right board for this- maybe should be in /diy/?
Ohm's Law help?
if i have a wire of (x) length coiled into (y) number of wraps, i'll have an impedance (z)
if i add a second identical wire of (x) length and parallel coil the two wires into (y) number of wraps, i'll have an impedance (0.5z)?
now if i cut the length of the wires to (0.5x) and parallel coil the two wires into (y) number of wraps, i'll have an impedance (0.25z)?
plz, i'm considering taking the problem to /b/ and just watching the poop-show into which the thread will degenerate
Now that the semester is over, is it OK to email one of my professors to thank them and let them know that I appreciate their work, or would that be cheesy and gay?
One of my maths professors was really good and explained things in a way that made me "get it" that made my mathematical understanding vastly better, and I really enjoyed his course. Is this a common thing? Have you ever done it?
Extremely homosexual, but go for it.
Write it in a physical thank-you card, not a goddamn email, though. Jesus.
Just do whatever the fuck you want.
On a second thought, don't do it. You must be a very insecure and socially inept individual in order to ask something like that. You'll end up writing something extremely cringe and your professor shouldn't have deal with that.
So, some of you may have seen the picross puzzle that GCHQ released. If you haven't, then I shall fill you in:
GCHQ has released a picross puzzle.
Anyway, I solved it because I'm not a dunce who's never seen a picross puzzle before. It's a QR code that links to www.gchq.gov.uk/puzz
Thus, we get to this question (pic related) because I'm a dunce who can't solve things like this very quickly.
Shall we do this together /sci/? We might as well see what they want to show us.
What is "reason"?
No. It is philosophers that think about what's behind. That is why they have shit job prospects and are autistic manchildren.
We think about what's beyond and that is what makes us relatively successful so like anon said, fuck off to his.
is it illegal to breed these things
i know its illegal to send them into space but thats because other stuff not related specifically to owning and raising lots of these
If you had two sonic charges and dropped them underwater, and they went off simultaneously, how harmful could that be to something in the water? Not from /sci/, asking on behalf of /tg/. How would the size of the charge affect things? They aren't big charges, probably about the size of your standard bauble.
Some kind of small bomb that when it explodes emits a huge amount of noise, basically. Also called a seismic charge. Like I said, I'm from /tg/ and not /sci/, so I'm guessing stuff like this likely dwells entirely within the realm of fantasy. Basically a shockwave/pulse bomb.
Is science today able to explain happiness?
Yes, it correlates negatively with intelligence.
Is Christmas gift-giving out of control?
If 18 family members each give each other 1 gift, that's 306 presents under one tree.
What is the optimal number of family members and gifts per member /sci/?
Is there really any point in even trying to succeed as an academic in STEM if you aren't a genius? And I dont mean genius in the le iq sense, but in the Newton/Euler/Tao sense.
Seriously, it feels like no matter how hard I work or how passionate I am, I will never be able to be even close to as successful as people like that.
Anyway, my question is can one make any meaningful contributions to STEM fields without being a genius?
Does America still have a space program or is it all just dying out now? It seems like the private sector is doing more to push for space than anything else. Maybe it is just the lack of hype and promotion of NASA's space program? Remember when every kid wanted to be an astronaut?
Got any good advancements to share?
There are actually a few government-run or funded programs right now.
Currently, the government's most-publicized program is sending astronauts to asteroids and eventually Mars. The problems with that initiative are many. The Space Launch System won't fly more than once every year in the most optimistic projections, and the majority of components we need to develop (Earth-Mars transit habitat module, Mars lander, Mars habitat, Earth-Mars propulsion) haven't even been budgeted and contracted yet....

If you flung a freshly deceased human corpse on the surface of the moon and left it there, would it decay?
the radiation kills bacteria, so no it would not decompose, only dry out and freeze, similar to mummies found in the Andes.
i know this is probably based on which uni, but i'm so desperate for insight. how do scholarships work? if you enter a program with a low gpa, but then boost it back up through the first semester past the eligibility mark for a scholarship, is it possible to apply even though you are already admitted? mine is low because i fucked up an exam in calculus but i had a high average beforehand, and i know i can bring it up if i do an additional course, but right now i want to attend the program when i know i've been accepted instead of risking rejection when i retry.

Whats better EE or mech??
