My physics book has a topic about Zener diodes being used as voltage regulators in the reverse bias. Well, I'm curious to know how does a Zener diode maintain the potential across its terminals after ...
Suppose we have a perfectly safe portal/wormhole and we place the two endpoints facing each other so that a person between them would see an endless corridor (with infinite number of herself). What ...
I am having a hard time picturing waves, the image that comes to mind is a bobbing device submerged in still water which generates pulses in all directions (similarly in air). Then how can a wave be ...

Disclaimer: I am not asking whether or not the events that occur in Anathem are possible. I understand that this book is a work of speculative science fiction and this site has no interest in it as ...
In his The Black Hole War: My Battle with Stephen Hawking to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics (p. 373) Susskind states that the entropy of a string is [...] proportional to its length. ...
I'm starting a (quad?)copter build, and i can find plenty of knowledge about stabilizing the craft and things related to gyroscopy. but there's absolutely zero information on things that help me ...
When I asked here why neutrons in nucleus (with protons) don't decay I was told that it would require energy for the neutron to decay, it wouldn't give energy. And since that wasn't really what I ...
