The Electromagnetic Wave, and the proof of the propagation of lightspeed

fuckyeahcalculus:

propagation

And that’s the speed of light for you!

I can appreciate a blog like this. I remember going through this proof in Electricity and Magnetism.

from @DerpParticle on Twitter: Retweets of people not really understanding what the “God Particle” is.
(Note that many of these people being RTed are trolling, and as Modern Primate has noted before, sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between the real dummies and the trolls. (Un?)Fortunately, plenty of these people are actually saying something stupid, without irony.)

A beautiful image that vividly shows why no one in the science community with any sense wanted to call the Higgs Boson the ‘god particle’. Because of crap like this. I can imagine some dude on his computer going “MOM, THEY FOUND GOD’S DNA.. PARTICLE.. THING. I JUST KNOW IT BELONGS TO GOD SOMEHOW”

I always understood why it was referred to as the “God particle”, and really, it IS a pretty good nick-name for it - in more of an ironic way. But I hadn’t really realized why people hated others referring to it as the God Particle until just right now. People actually think this is scientific evidence of God. Seriously. Like it’s Jesus’ skin-flake or something.

Do You Understand The Higgs Boson?

Do You Understand the Higgs Boson?

Fake Science 101, available for pre-order at just $10.39, has a full paragraph about the boson!

Have a projectile motion problem but need to find the radius of curvature for some value of t? 

DONT WORRY, I GOT YA SON

First, ask your professor WTF?, and then remember:

Parametrize them x and y coordinates and use

That was a real life Dynamics final exam problem-simulation.

Dynamics is done, so now what?

I’m pretty happy Dynamics is done, but I’m one of those people who REALLY doesn’t know what to do with himself when they’re out of class.  I’ll likely end up doing a bunch of review - Mechanics of Materials, Series and Sequences, and Electricity and Magnetism.

I’m lame as hell, but I don’t even care.
