  1. Anyone know of a par excellence text on Linear algebra that a physics student could get?
  2. sometimes they just like to see that you will participate in groups, if they look at your clubbing history at all.
  3. Hi I am A Fool, (so that people think that I am humble when really I am the smartest man alive!) um nice to meet you?
  4. Maybe the rose in the basement was lonely and roses are actually a social being. The solitary confinement could be a huge stressor on the poor plant and eventually the lonelyness got to it and decided it wasn't worth it anymore! you monster! you let that poor thing die a lonely death! what did it do to you!
  5. absolutely facinating! way to go anthropic principle on a cosmological scale!
  6. A good Idea is ususally to talk to a variety of professors in the bio/chem/physics departments at the school you are attending/planning on attending. Also you must realize that careers are dynamic and you could be studying this now and that later, don't let that bother you though it is something that is almost subconcious. Also when it comes to sciences, especially physics, a lot of what you learn are tools, example: my physics professor and head of the physics departments studies biological systems, it's the physics he uses that makes him a physics professor.
  7. yes there are variations to the interpretation of colors in the human brain, but generaly the majority of people see a similar color, hence our rationality of calling colorblindness a malformity. Also the primary colors of pigments are yellow, magenta, and cyan whereas the primary colors of light are red, green, and blue. I can see the argument of light as being scaled similar to music, but in light you just get into ultraviolet and infrared if you try to jump octaves, in a manner of speaking. Is the question you are asking about whether to recognise these higher frequencies as multiples of the visible light spectrum? (in that case you would be right)
  8. that cleared up pretty much everything thanks swansont. ~Fool
  9. I'm a physics major not a Neuroscience major but does brain activity have an effect on how long the brain lasts? like excersising, or does it wear on the brain like an engine. thing is if you were to do a test of people with similar circumstance and habits and everything to try to determine average longevity would you have to take into account their IQ and uses thereof?
  10. I saw something interesting so I desided to ask the brains that be: I was watching a program about military training and they mentioned that they have problems with some of their recruits that, even after long training, cannot physically cope with lengthy/long distance runs, and they suspected that it was genetic and that no matter how hard they train they will never be able to long distance run without collapsing. I just wanted an educated opinion on the matter thanks. ~Fool
  11. I apologize for bringing this sensitive issue to play especially if this topic has already been brought up: Did we land on the moon? there is alot of speculation about it so i decided maybe it would be best if i ask the ones with brains. Apparently the counterevidence to us landing on the moon are, but not limited to: -lack of blast crater under the LM -lack of background noice from the rocket during decents while astronaughts talk -pictures of different missions 5 miles appart with the exact same rock formations -lack of rocket plume from LM in video when take off back to the shuttle -the crosshairs in pics have some objects in front and some behind -the whole sheilding issue through the Van Halen belts. and the list goes on and on Please shed some light thanks ~Fool
  12. In my limited knowledge, I was under the impression that a blackhole (singularity) was mathematically sound iff there was something on the other side of it ie. different dimensions, ect. I seem to recall something roughly called the "no hair theorem" in which there is only three things you can know about a black hole (therefore no hairy little details to worry about): It's Mass, electric charge, and it's angular momentum. So with the current model you could debate that there is a worm hole or a singularity or even the complete works of shakespeare in there. The problem is it is useless to try and predict something with a theory when said theory breaks down in those circustances. ~Fool
  13. How very thouroughly enlightening thank you very much!
  14. Hey Thanks for the help guys
  15. It's a Basic Question and therefore should be asked if other things are built upon it. why is a negative times a negative a positive and a negative times a positive a negative and similarily for division? If i missed something basic back in grade 3 please be gentle thanks, A Fool
  16. I Derived the same answer......
  17. This Steady flow of matter I assume would still be branching out from the same point that the Big bang started? And this would only continue for how long there was matter in the connected universe whethere is was a plank unit of time or what. But if That matter transfer was through a Black hole then perhaps we are spewing matter into other universes as we speak. hmmm. I think I might be to tired to be getting any of this right but that would remind me of the cartoons when they fill their lungs with air so much their head expands then that shrinks then their feet expands ect......I need sleep now.
  18. I think a good Aproach would be to demonstrate your prowess at understanding the needs life has in an ecosphere then give a thourough example, like if you chose mars you could determine if you could generate heat by deep holes in the surface and pumping water down it like the reverse effect of a radiator then power the pumps by sand protected wind turbines or solar panel with deepcharge batteries. the possibilities are endless
  19. I just starting to get into the stage of university physics that deals with quantum mechanics and i was curious about what types of mathematics are most prevalent in an introdutory course. I supose i know the math already due to the fact that i have the prerequisites. It would help me a great deal though if somepersons could tell me if there is any other math that would also be helpful, what math is mostly used so i don't get caught off guard, or a website where i can start early on quantum mechanics itself. thank you A Fool
  20. anyone know a good site for learning multivariable calculus, I'm trying to keep learning physics for the summer but the math caught up to me. cheers
  21. very enlightening thank you.
  22. My Girlfriend's Parents recently asked me to take a look at stemenhance products and get my opinion on it. http://www.enhancestemcellsnaturally.com/ I was just curious as to how effective stem cells from bone marrow would be in maintaining the body and repairing tissue such as the brain and liver. I was under the impression that there was different generations of stem cells in the body and that the type coming out of bone marrow was primarily for blood related cells, therefore the primary enhancement would be help for people with low immunity, because wouldn't the body reject an overabundance of cells in the blood to keep homeostasis?
  23. I must have missed something about the standard definition of moment of inertia. how did they come up with the basic formula I= the integral of radius^2times dm? Cheers
