Making college pretty much free? I agree in the sense that college is really fucking expensive these days, but totally creating a system where higher education is dirt cheap doesn't sound that great either. More and more people will be going for college and getting degrees, thus, devaluing the worth of them.
>Thus devaluing the worth of them. It's not about you, though. If you think increasing the overall intelligence/education of an entire nation (or world for that matter) is bad in the long wrong you have a serious problem with how your perceive what a degree is about.
I've been looking around and I've decided to ask cause I'm trying to see if It's possible to make a high yield mini like nuke And I've come across the Thin man a old project that was abonded in 1944 it was a gun type nuclear plutonium weapon and I think it can be much more smaller and better but is it possibile to even make a gun type plutonium nuke? Image related that's the bomb they tried to make of the thin man.
>>7702011 >>7702016 And since your image gave me a sensible chuckle, I guess will answer your question... I have an MSCE and I'm a computer programmer. The culture is... pretty much 100% male I guess... full of awkward guys who make pretty good money.
>physics Set of weird cunts who like Popsci, think they are fucking geniuses and always dog on engineers, art students, biologists, chemists, mathematician and basically anyone who isn't a physicist. Professors and lecturers are usually chill though
I'm still trying to wrap my head around how a system can have heat added/removed but not change temperature. Is this because of both the P and V changing so that T can remain constant in the ideal gas law?
Am I thinking of this too literally? I know that heat is units of energy/mass, and temperature is units of Kelvin so I can see how they're different, but isn't Kelvin just another representation of how much kinetic energy a group of molecules has? I don't see how you can change the energy/mass without changing the kinetic energy of the molecules.
What the guy above said. Temperature doesn't go with quantity - look uo "intensive" variable. Also, kelvin is a spooky unit, consider it to be the same as energy, there is only the arbitrary Boltzmann constant in the way. This bts. Makes entropy unitless, as it should be. Its a combinatorical quantity.
>>7702002 > Not a topologist, but if you ever study non-foundational math, you'll find that topology is ubiquitous.
A solid introductory graduate course in topology will quickly reveal how much of the, say analysis, you've done was actually topology, with only a few concepts being truly unique to analysis, like, say, integration.
I know very little of algebraic topology, but I do know that whenever you couple algebra with something, you're looking to find a way to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a question relating to photons and momentum. I made two Feynman diagrams, I hope I used them right. (Time goes bottom->top, space goes left->right) In the diagram on the left, a beam-riding/photon sail configuration is shown. A high-energy (high-frequency, low wavelength) photon comes in from the left, then is reflected by the atom, leaving the atom with some of the energy originally within the photon, and the photon with less energy as it leaves. The diagram on the right depicts the situation I am asking about. A photon stimulates an atom to emit a photon... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7701798 Yeah, that's why beam-riding (on the left) works, right? The photon transfers some of its momentum to the atom. For things with mass, p=m*v, so it increases the atom's velocity. For photons and other massless particles, p=E/c, and E=hv (where v is the frequency), so the photon's frequency decreases.
In my diagram on the right, I guess I'm asking if an atom emitting a photon gives it momentum, through a decrease in the energy of the atom. Lasers work by using photons to cause excited... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7701409 >one of those things >this thing that would heat your lawn >mass produced thing what thing all I see is a drawn mockup of something that would require either ridiculous amounts of energy to keep warm or some sort of unobtanium which isolates just as good as house wall while being transparent and thin
>>7701268 Infinity isn't a number.. Even when working with extended reals, when speaking of probability measures, and consequently probability measures, the set where a RV takes on the value + infinity or -infinity has measure 0...
Also, see Kai Lai Chung's book on measure theoretic probability.. Picking a random integer doesn't quite make sense in the case to which you're referring.. I'm assuming you want all integers to be equally likely. There's no uniform distribution for infinite discrete sets.
