>I'd major in physics but I suck at and hate math
How do you respond?
People skills are far more superior to math. There will never be adequate funding and resources for the amazing projects mankind can complete without reshaping the culture of the west. A great orator and salesman will go 1000x further to advancing scientific pursuits than any above average mathematician (which you are not).
I would like to pursue something abstract that makes me look smart in family reunions.
I thought about switching to pure math.
If your aim is to impress strangers you're 100 times better off becoming a medical doctor or even an engineer or lawyer.
Most people think math/science students are sort of spergy and entirely unemployable.
For example for Thanksgiving I discussed Descartes famous idea of "I think, therefore I am" to my relatives. They were very much impressed and were glad they finally grasped its meaning. I understand that this guy Euclid did something similar but for mathematics.
Evolution is one of those things you accept as true when you take it at face value but the more you read about it the more nonsensical it becomes.
It's literally the "muh invisible hand" of the biological sciences.
Prove me wrong.
Protip: you literally can't
>the more you read about it the more nonsensical it becomes.
That which endures, endures.
That which does not, does not.
you're not reading it properly then

Why are solar systems and such always shown as horizontal orbits?
Why dont we see lots of orbits that go vertical and horizontal?
>Why dont we see lots of orbits that go vertical and horizontal
But we see.
Is everything programmable?
You should be able to solve this.
Why aren't we storing electricity from lightning yet?
4chan gets shut down, what do you do?

Alrighty, you little nerds. For too long have I felt like a dumb ass trying to hit up on your precious little nerdettes only to be ridiculed and shot down because I can't solve derivatives or know what a stupid hippopotenuse is. It's time to git good at mathematics once and for all. I'm doing a total reboot and starting from the essentials. I'll be constructing a diagram that takes me from the basics of arithmetic all the way up to the complex things like calculus and linear algebra. My aim is to calibrate my level and diagnose my weaknesses. Any help on...

>Copenhagen makes no sense while MWI makes perfect sense but physics fags won't accept it because they're butthurt that scifi was right all along
Can you solve this for me?
The nearest star is Proxima Centauri at a distance of 4.2 light years. At a speed of 150,000 miles per hour from a passive slingshot maneuver, it would be about 17,900 years to reach.
It is physically impossible for objects to attain light speed as it would require infinite energy which is impossible to generate in this universe.

I SHOULD KEEP BUMPING THIS UNTIL IT GETS THROUGH YOUR THICK VADER HELMET AND KLINGON SKULL.
I AM WAITING FOR YOU TO START REALIZING THAT THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY IS EQUALLY AS STUPID AS THE RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY BUT NERDIER AND THAT'S ALL.
>want to build this LED set
>only have 3.3kOhm resistors on hand
>don't feel like waiting to order new ones
Nevermind this, 30 ohms can't be done reliably with this technique.
Try to find something from your household items, like thin wire, that could have 30 ohms of resistance when coiled up.
Hey /sci/ redpill me on these ancestry/gene test kits. Is it all snakeoil, pretty accurate, or somewhere inbetween?
It is pretty accurate, though it is not exact.
I really think they should add some confidence estimates.
Also, since the Y chromosome is inherited from father to son, you can trace father to father back through time with high accuracy. The same is true for mothers and the DNA of mitochondria.
Someone more versed in Biology can explain it better.
hey guys, so here's the problem. i can't get my head around it. is someone here smart enought to solve this? linearn programming, simplex method
Instead we just shrivel up and die of radiation poisoning or cancer with even just a small dosage of radiation. Its not fair...
Uh, that's because radiation is literal fucking poison to your DNA
It's the same as saying why can't we turn into superheroes when we're thrown in a fire (except for Jews, I guess. They turned into something you can't ever question after being put in fire).
Last motherfucker tried this got a particles trough his head, luckily the particles were too fast that it didn't kill him.
Half of his face stayed forever young though.
/sci/, do feelings matter more than biology?
Why is reanimating a corpse impossible? All the material is there. What is missing?
Hi, could anyone adept at binary etc take a look at this thread and post your thoughts there.
(I might have screwed up the link, it's a post on /ck/).
Pic vaguely related.
has Neil Tyson made lots of contributions to science? Is he one of the best physicists of our generation?
Is there a limit to how much emotion one could theoretically feel, considering emotion is based entirely on chemicals? Could there be a hard cap to how much chemicals your body can produce to make you feel whatever emotion your brain decides on?
For example, dopamine. Is there a certain concentration you could reach to where any more would stop affecting you, or to where your body cannot produce more?
Dopamine ins't just used for emotion. It is also used for mechanical functions such as postural stability. this gives rise to the thought that these neurotransmitters are only associated with emotions, and not actually responsible for emotions themselves.
Also, if you take into account that people faint from severe stress, then yes there is some sort of limit to emotions, but each emotion may have their own limit.
I don't think concentration of neurotransmitters necessarily corresponds to 'intensity' of emotion (if such a thing could even be measured) - and I don't think you can reasonably say that emotion is entirely based on chemicals.
Is the existence or not of free will a scientific question?
I have a math exam in the morning and Im cramping like crazy but I just figured out by seperating ideas into ridiculous things it makes it easier to remember the stuff. Why is the human brain so shit that you have to do this just to remember things constantly?
The average human brain is in fact not shit, but you on the other hand, your a different story...
I am have a really hard time with this. I am supposed to correct and explain what I did wrong but I have no idea what I did wrong. Can anyone help?
Shit. Sorry. Is this better?
Also there's a back. That's that side I did the worst on.
>doing just fine in core classes
>lowest grade is in my stupid architecture class that I'm taking for an art credit, might get a B
Why do universities make us take these stupid liberal arts classes?
Please help! Im trying to help my little brother with this final equation, but I have no idea what is going on
Question: The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 29 inches. The lengths of the two legs are given by two consecutive integers. Find the lengths of the two legs.
So, I have a suitemate who I have to dorm with for 3 more weeks. Seeing as I am moving to an apartment and that this dude is a complete asshat, I wanted to do a harmless prank before I left. I was thinking along the lines of a small amount of contact explosive, like Nitrogen Triiodide, but I've made that before, and it stains everything. Are there any /sci/ themed pranks out there that won't get me expelled? Thanks.
Can someone tell me which variable is dependent and which is independent please? Thanks a million
