>>7691459 Jeepers Creepers lad, I took those three along with Organic Chemistry and Lab. You're fucked if that was a heavy load. My advice is to take it easy and take only one or two heavy/core engineering classes per semester, and then two or three of the easier ones ("Communication for Engineers", Computational Methods, Thermo, etc.).
It was more or less common knowledg that the earth was round even before galileo. This knowledge was hugely important for navigating the seas.
The only reason galileo got into shit with the church was because he claimed that the earth being round disproves religion. Not that he is entirely wrong on it contradicting the old testament but he clearly overstepped boundries outside of simply claiming that the world isn't flat.
First time on /sci/ so be gentle, I'm trying to figure out specs for a hypothetical engine, I've only learned about volumetric efficiency a couple hours ago so if I'm doing something wrong let me know. So this is what I'm coming up with targeted Horsepower: 800 at 8000 rpm displacement: 311.8 ci thermal efficiency: .25 Fuel flow: 428.48 pounds per hour Brake specific fuel consumption: .5356 Mass airflow: 5,356 pph Required airflow: 1166.75 Required volumetric efficiency: 1.616 (161.6%) Manifold atmospheric pressure: 48.3532133813"...

Alright /sci/entists Has anybody had any success convincing others about climate change? My dad was just watching something on Fox News about it, and I got into a big argument with him. What's the best evidence to show them? I didn't have any statistics to hand.
He's a computer programmer, and he has some engineering background, so he's not stupid. I feel like I just need to show him the right evidence. Any thoughts?
>>7691372 Well firstly inform him that the carbon we release (not from breathing, but from industrial and commercial activities) is different from the carbon released from nature, such as by breathing, eruptions, etc.
Hello /sci/. First time posting on this board, I usually post on /b/ or /mu/. At my school, I started up a combat robots club and currently me and my team are coming up with different ideas for what to build and I wanted to hear your opinions with what we came up with. So we decided to go with a horizontal spinner though we're not sure if we want to make it a full-body spinner or a an overhead spinner. The robot will be run on 5-6 NiCad batteries, 2 of them for the drive motors and the rest for the weapon motor. The chassis will use aluminum reinforced with titanium. We're... Comment too long.

>>7691341 Yeah, I've seen that alot, and that's my main concern with most horizontal spinner designs. Would you say attaching magnets to the underbelly of the robot be a reasonable idea or would the sawblades coming up from the ground only ruin them?
>>7691295 Uhg I hate wrapping my mind around the concept of very small things. It's kind of boring. But, it is ultimately a study of Biology in a small branch none the less. Just as long as you have a passion for it, Anon.
can someone redpill me on the double slit experiment? My professor said that it was because human consciousness was actually influencing the particles. When I asked him if it was just that the act of measuring the particles necessarily acted on them he said that was wrong. Is human consciousness really affecting reality on a quantum level? seems to retarded to be true, but I don't know enough about quantum physics to have a valid opinion.
Live Stream starts Tomorrow http://www.nationalacademies.org/gene-editing/Gene-Edit-Summit/index.htm
China, UK, America, and others including many of the biggest people in the field will be speaking for 3 days. Includes a panel for SJW to discuss ethics of it as well (recommended not to watch that part).
MIT tech review's latest article on the subject including some mentions of the summit. http://www.technologyreview.com/news/543541/how-to-really-engineer-a-human-baby/
If you love physics. If you want money/fame, etc. there are better ways to go about it.
>is it really that hard to get a job after? If you want to be a professor, yes. Especially in certain subfields. But there are tons of places that employ physicists, you definitely won't be without a nice paying job.
