  1. Google is your friend: http://electron6.phys.utk.edu/101/CH7/phase_transitions.htm
  2. acts like a wire
  3. Sounds like you'll have a head start on our "post-AP" project!
  4. Not quite sure I understand what "Mr. Fullerton is for the boys" means, but glad to hear you've gotten something out of the course. I, too, am glad you've stuck with it. Couple more weeks of pushing and the finish line is in sight!
  5. I was right with you up to the part where you said "it isn't that horrible of a movie." The missus made me sit through it once. The post-viewing fever lasted three days.

  6. And of course there's that whole "Gallifrey and the Daleks are time-locked" complication. As corny and goofy as the show is, what always impresses me is the quality of the writing... and I'm really enjoying the fact that my 7-year-old is now all about watching Doctor Who with her dad whenever mom isn't home (Mommy would find it 'inappropriate.')
  7. So thrilled you've enjoyed the course. Recognizing it's the most technically challenging (as well as highest workload), and coupling that with an exceedingly frustrating instructor who is happy to sit back and let you struggle, you've done a mighty nice job in stepping up to the challenge. Only a couple weeks left... don't let up!
  8. You're on the home stretch of a mighty difficult course, not just in content but also in terms of level of independence. You've done well -- keep it up for just a few more weeks!
  9. Sure been nice having you in here!
  10. Nice post! I appreciate how you put some time and thought into it.
  11. When the switch is first closed, the capacitor acts like a wire. Both B and D will have no effective resistance because there is a short from one side of the battery to the other where the capacitor is. For a split second, they will have near zero resistance, and a very large spike in current.
  12. It depends where on the object that force is being applied.
  13. It depends on where you set your reference angle for theta -- I'd defined mine from a perpendicular perspective. You could also have cosine instead depending upon your starting point.
  14. Checked: A) B=D, C, A, E; D, B=C, A=E There is a typo in an early edition of the book
