Hey fellow physics peoples, obviously if you looked at the time I posted this I cant sleep. After sleeping for 12 hours saturday and with the robitussium "nighttime" nasal relief worn off, I am wide awake while the rest of the world (at least in this hemisphere) is asleep. Trying to find a way to amuse myself at 5:00 in the morning, I thought this would be the perfect time to do a physics blog post. YAY!!!!!
So thanks to my cold my brain hasnt been fuctioning all that well, making it really hard for me to 1) get motivated to actually do homework and 2) to understand it. So I needed some help on the calculus homework. So I went over to a friends house for some help at 7:00 last night and I had taken some more robitussium, making me very sleepy. Thankfully, I have a very nice friend that was willing to make me coffee. So we're doing calculus and I just finished the mug of coffee she gave me, and being doped up on drugs and drowsiness I'm staring into the cup trying to figure out if its a shallow flat bottom or a deep cone shaped bottom. Well my friend is like, "what are you doing?" as I poke the bottom. Realizing that the bottom was just a reflection of the rim of the cup and that my face was in the small circle at the bottom of the cup, I go, "OMG the bottom of the cup is a convex mirror!!! Well, after that we had to see if i was right or not, but i cant seem to remember now if it was a convex or concave mirror, so if someone could tell me that would be cool. Definitely a mirror, smaller image, and right side up. Have fun!!
