20180405 03:13:54  well I got down to D and E as well. But instead of taking m to infinity, I took it to zero. In that way D gives an infinitely large frequency. I can\'t make sense out of it. I think a massless m2 simply makes itself disappeared so the system is just a pendulum with a meaningless spring attached it oscillating with f = sqrt (l/g). \r\nThere is something wrong with this reasoning. I hope somebody can help me eventually.\r\n

20170408 00:55:51  I\'m confused. Choice (E) resembles the function y = which has positive concavity, not negative like the graph shows.

20150904 09:22:09  I tried to solve this problem in an alternative way, which is less simple and convenient than the official solution on the site, but unfortunately failed to get the correct answer.

20150323 12:27:14  I'm a little confused about notation in chemistry. In Quantum Mechanics, the notation of (2s+1)^L_(j) is used where L is a place holder for the total angular momentum quantum number (l=0 >S, l=1>P, l=2 >D, etc). How does 2s+1 relate to the proton number, in this case Z=11. The solution says to sum up the superscripts to see which add up to 11 but why?

20131018 11:28:05  I tried this method and it gave me an entirely wrong answer (a^3/12). I assumed that we would want the volume of the shape made by the primitive vectors, which would be a small tetrahedron. If someone could explain a way to understand this problem geometrically (similar to what Karsten is trying to do), that'd be really helpful. I understand the shortcut way of dividing the total volume by the number of lattice points, but I'm really craving a geometric argument that's more intuitive.

20131014 17:28:53  The shape you get is also very dependant on the phase difference; see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lissajous_curve
Anyone know how to quickly get the answer?

20131012 09:40:21  If we take E=0, wouldn't the particle have no period? The only choice that satisfies this is (C) but (C) is incorrect.

20110728 04:44:09  I, too, don't see how the capacitors are in parallel. The problem statement says nothing about this, and we could equally likely consider them in series...So what is the point here ?

20100409 19:57:04  Just think of it as the superposition of two waves one that is polarized and one that is partly polarized add these together (think a circle and a ellipse) and you will get the combined wave.

20100327 13:14:14  Some texts include the spin of an odd nucleon in the total RussellSaunders coupling sum of spins. I don't know why it is sometimes included and sometimes not. Perhaps that is why ETS has designated the state as S=1, because they are including the spin of the proton. The problem with this method is that all atoms would have a total integer spin, zero for even Z, and one for odd Z. Does anyone know when to include the odd nucleon and when not to in the total angular momentum? It seems that it should always be included. I don't think that electronic shielding in larger atoms would change the total angular momentum.

20100218 08:22:12  I like your idea about using common sense, and it works, however, in this case the answers B and C are very close, in the moment of the test, under pressure is very hard try to deicide about one of them. There is an alternative way to do some basic calculation to give the right answer, beteween B and C?

20080927 23:01:00  I take issue with this answer! This is the way I did it.
1. Given Rmin and Rmax you can sum them and divide in two to determine the semimajor axis, a. Thus choice E is eliminated
2. Given Rmin and the semimajor axis you just found, you can compute the eccentricity:
Rmin=a(1e)
where a is the semimajor axis and e is the eccentricity
3. Given Vperi and Rmin you can calculate the mass of the planet:
Vperi = sqrt{(GM(1+e))/Rmin}
Thus choice B is eliminated
4. Similarly, since Rmax was also measured, you can now find the minimum velocity, which will occur at apastron:
Vap= sqrt{(GM(1e))/Rmax
Thus choice C is eliminated
Now we are left with the mass of the moon or the period of the orbit. Kepler's law is *actually*
P^2= (4pi^2)a^3/(G(M+m))
Note the denominator contains the *sum* of the masses!
So we truly have one equation left with two unknowns. You *cannot* calculate the *exact* period from here. You can only make an approximation where you neglect the mass of the moon, but that seems like a selffulfilling prophecy or circular reasoning to me. Saying "a very small moon" is very subjective. What if the planet, too, is very small? They don't state the ratio of the planet to the moon, or mention that it is negligible in size compared to the planet. So how can we really use Kepler's law in approximate form in this case?

20080925 03:46:39  I don't understand.
Why should we consider only reflections at the top and the bottom of the air gap? Why not the reflections at the top of the upper glass plat and the second glass plate?

20080921 17:12:38  Wait, how are we in the clear??????? If gamma really is 5/4 then beta should be 3/5. Beta is clearly 3/4 = 0.75
So how is it a valid transformation?

20071021 21:28:08  I'm not really seeing why the tangential velocity of the two masses together is equal to the sum of their original linear velocities. Why can they be added this way?
