  2. The reason why you get shocked more in the winter is because everyone has their heaters on which draws the moisture out of the air which causes the charges to build up and cling to us more since there is less moisture in the air.

  3. So are you saying that in one of these dimensions you're actually good at super Mario??. Fascinating stuff Jake, and don't go putting your cats in radioactive boxes, alright big guy?

  4. Jelliott, I can really relate to your analogies. I too wish to become a beautiful butterfly, to grow and grow until I burst with knowledge. although I find some of your post humorous as intended, I think you struck on very important ideas. I think hard problems can be torture but on the other hand, that makes them that much more rewarding when completed.

  6. Sweet blog post. If you wouldn't mind spreading the love and also buying your two student teachers silver Porsches, we wouldn't complain

  8. Actually Youwrong, you’re wrong. His quote when coating the sled is, “it’s a new non-caloric silicone-based kitchen lubricant.” The cereal varnish is something Clark was working on, that his boss asked him for details to include in a speech. Two different items. And your “requires a very easy and quick search...” tone sucks too, especially when (living up to your username) you’re wrong.

  10. Close, but as the angle in radians approaches zero, cosine of the angle won't approach zero... it should approach 1.

  11. As a member of the same volleyball team, I can vouch that you have earned the nickname of "Softest Hands in Section V". Also, if you ever wish to start a band, I could be your upright or electric bassist. We already have these cool usernames for our band member names, and I believe we could create some sick physics parodies. I'm glad to see you came up to this level of physics, and I wish you the best this year. We will definitely be in the same boat. -ThePeculiarParticle

  12. Thrilled to have you aboard BrandyBoy... I think we'll be able to challenge you a bit this year, maybe the first serious academic challenge you'll face. When you hit that point (and most students do at some point in this class) -- keep in mind you have tons of fans rooting for you, and it's OK to struggle and fail. Failing is the first step to success, and learning how to fail productively is a terribly underestimated skill. Am I hearing the beginnings of some blog posts on how physics relates to boy scouts?

  18. Quinn - Sorry you experienced the more painful side of physics. Elastic and inelastic collisions are really interesting to think about, especially in terms of the sports that are played. When I go bowling this weekend, I am going to try to put them both to work for me!! Which do you think would be most important?

  20. An 80 meter pull? I am quite impressed. And I like this explanation and diagram. As an Ultimate player myself, obviously I was aware of the physics of the game and of the mechanics that the shape of the Frisbee add to the game. However, I did not know the exact purpose of the rim. Thank you for enlightening me!

  21. And now we're starting to make electronics small enough that the wave nature of particles is coming into play. Quantum electronic devices are becoming reality, and gate thickness of transistors are becoming so thin that electrons tunneling through dielectrics becomes a problem (or a feature).

  22. I love Disney! that was such a creative idea to pull in something so fun and relate it to physics.

  29. I, also, enjoy analyzing movies to see just where they "go off the rails," physics-wise. Pirates of the Caribbean has a great clip that makes it easy to do a similar analysis:
