I'm building a coil gun but I can't get a high enough current. I'm launching the projectile by momentarily connecting the wires connected to my power supply to the ends of the coil.

My PSU supplies 30V up to 5A. But it isn't powerful enough for my purposes.

How can I increase the current that goes through the coil?

because that's not even close to how magnetism works
The circulation of a magnetic field around some loop in space is proportional to the current within. current (moving charge) makes magnetic fields. is there any current involved in your hypothetical, anon?

Could parallel universes with different versions of ourselves exist?
12 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
They would if by universe you mean all of reality, universe could be reserved for what we can observe/places where particles and shit like this have the values that we measure they have. Where they have other values, those places would qualify as other universes in this scheme I'm currently making up.
I would so suck myself off if I could visit me in a parallel Universe. No homo.
It is certain that going to another universe will have you blowing your cock, but if you stayed in this universe and you from a different multiverse came he would be sucking your cock. Obviously the multiverse is a branching decision matrix so your odds of choosing to go suck yourself off directly correlates with you coming to blow you in this one. If you refuse, then nobody will leave nor suck your cock, but if you choose to go every time, then you will never suck cock nor get your cock sucked, but everyone will change places like the infinity hotel. What is the blowjob theory optimal strategy knowing that you want to maximize chances of getting your cocked suck and minimize chances of sucking cock yourself.

> far away in space

there's no space between seperate universes
You could have infinite universes with infinite possibilities and still be totally unique.
This notion that it means there are infinite versions of you is wrong

This is still OP and this is a grave issue to me.
>What is the easiest way I can notice time dilation due to gravity inducing quantities of mass

GPS satellites need to have their atomic clocks slowed down due to relativistic time effects.
I know there are tons of Google Scholar articles on this, which is your favorite in your opinion?

For me, it's because I got progressively better at automating my mind and muscle movements.
When I was younger I did everything with a lot more thinking / deliberation and stress which makes life go by much more slowly since you're doing something with each moment.

literal children can carry out this experiment
"charge" is relative therefore you need to establish a difference in energy level first

with this considered, "positive" and "negative" has no objective value
>"charge" is relative
charge is certainly not relative. what the fuck? is mass relative too? you are retarded.
Here's another way to do it.
Measuring the fine structure constant is essentially measuring the charge of the electron in certain natural units, so here's a paper measuring that.

Currently writing a thesis, and I wanted to ask for some opinions on this subject since you guys seem to have great ideas.

>What are some causes of sickness absence in the workplace?
>How can the leaders affect sickness absence among their employees?
>What can be done to prevent or reduce sickness absence?

Thanks in advance bros

Calling a thesis for homework is a bit silly.
Thank you for the extended answer, anon.
I will keep this saved.

I realize a lot of it is also personality based, and much more complex depending on differences in jobs. Some jobs have more autonomy than others, and generally speaking less autonomy and high workload means higher sickness absences.
If it's not due to actual sickness, leadership or the work environment is probably shit. If morale is bad, you're SOL. Leadership can lead by example, but this is mostly going to start in the hiring process to find employees that are less likely to call out. They can't do anything about people actually becoming ill outside of making sure that employees are healthy.
It's a bit more scientific than homework and idk what other board to post it on.

Sounds like a socially good work environment. What kinda job do you have?

I agree with that, I have done it too when I needed to do uni work but my job isn't possible to do from home.
Here where I live its pretty common to be able to work from home, let's say if you work at a university or something like that.
What does SOL mean?
But yes I agree it starts in the hiring process, by hiring reliable people who are motivated to work.

The nurse profession has been plagued with high percentage of sickness absence due to stressful work environment, low wages and sometimes unfavorable work hours.

What does that mean the higgs field gives particles their mass? I have studied QED and electrons just have mass. Like we measure the mass and charge and just put it in, we dont know where any of the values come from.
Doing some brief reading it appears the higgs field is related to problems with the weak force. Calculations didnt make sense so they were fixed by ADDING a new patch just like so many other things are discovered in physics (Neptune, infrared light, dark matter). This patch is the higgs field. Is this right?

That's not the paper in my post. I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish with this
The quoted part
>If the intermediate vector bosons are observed to have masses above 100 GeV this possibility must be taken seriously.
Is the very last sentence of the paper you so generously linked here
The pic about SU(12) comes from your first source
From section 4/
>4. Four-Fermi interactions
yep, this thread is a bunch of dumb moneys looking for their dopamine hookup. 100% reddit
Martha no...
>If the intermediate vector bosons are observed to have masses above 100 GeV this possibility must be taken seriously.
That paper was from 1981, before 100 GeV was reached. Since then the model has been ruled out by experiment and I said as much in my post. The point is that it is a confining theory that is smoothly connected to the actual weak coupling Higgsed standard model. It is so smoothly connected that people in 1981 could not actually tell the difference between the two. Do you see my point now?

>From section 4/
>4. Four-Fermi interactions
Ok I missed that, but the SU(12) is referring to a global symmetry in the SU(2)xU(1) gauge theory. It is not some kind of GUT with an SU(12) gauge group.

How do we get more women in STEM?
189 replies and 32 images omitted. Click here to view.
Women are absolutely not empathic. Men are. Women are shallow concieted cunts affected by the social organism and by compulsive projection. They have no actual empathy to speak of.
Have you ever considered that you're autistic and have no actual understanding of the emotional threshold of your peers?
Have you considered that it's strange the way you black out every time someone criticizes a woman, and when you come back to your senses, a post has been made from your computer that regurgitates some generic socially programmed tripe?
You make generalizing statements, and that's a dumbass move. You're probably low T or autistic. That's not an insult. Stop projecting. Have your shit checked.
>You make generalizing statements

so um, I've got a bit of a tard question here.
I got my math degree at a 5th rate university and I somehow landed a gig at Cornell, and they said they would pay like, one class a semester.

I'm pretty sure that I am completely unqualified to take any mainline graduate math class there. Should I just yolo it and see where I land or is there a way to skill check myself before throwing myself into incinerator and wasting everyone's time?
Nevermind I managed to finally solve this.
I took [math]p=10[/math] and ended up with:
[eqn]\int_{0}^{1} x^{\frac{-9}{10}} cos(x)dx = \int_{0}^{1}y^{-9} (10) y^{10-1}cos(y^{10})dy[/eqn]
[eqn]=10\cdot\int_{0}^{1}y^{-9} y^{9}cos(y^{10})dy[/eqn]
[eqn]\approx 9.7718427[/eqn]
Which is also the value I get via the online integral calculator.
Simon Singh's books are all bangers.

Is this for a master's?
How come I can only expand this picture when I have my mouse on the edge of it?

Whats tensor
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
In extremely layman terms:

A set of numbers in an array with a defined way of adding and multiplying to each other with the additional property that the basis and components of the array transform oppositely to each other so that the set doesn't change.
an array of numbers
I never understood why my physics professors kept trying to define vectors as something that transformed in a specific way until I learned about tensors.
Turns out they just meant tensors. It was all tensors.
the T33, T22, and T11 vectors are compression forces, while T12, T21 etc. are shear forces. The units are in terms of pressure (force/area)
n dimensional variable

Because soientists are evil.
those "experiments" were all fake. no witnesses other than the author. just more spectacular fake soience lies which are intentionally designed to get you thinking that you "know" ideas which are fundamentally false.
