I am a graduate student studying astrophysics at Princeton. I received my bachelor's in physics and mathematics from Caltech (2011).

My primary interest is in general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics simulations of black hole accretion.

comment Removal of heat from a closed system using electricity
The two answers both come with the caveat that you can't violate the 2nd law of thermodynamics, but it really seems like you are trying to violate it. Take this to heart: you can't just turn absolute heat into electricity or any other material/substance/condition that could possibly be used to do work. You can only tap into heat differences; i.e. you can only cool an object by moving its heat (and then some) somewhere else.

comment Do rotating magnetic fields violate all physical rules?
I tried reading through this, but I can't really understand the problem. Could you highlight where exactly the discrepancy lies? Also some better formatting wouldn't go amiss. For example, specifying what the result of each calculation is -- not just the number and/or units, but what it is supposed to represent.
