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 Why is propagation of uncertainties quadratic rather than linear?
Alas questions like this are becoming more common. Someone out there keeps teaching students the wrong formulas.

The shorter version: to zeroth order, all atomic bonds have the same energy (a few eV), and all combustibles (especially all hydrocarbons) have the same number of bond rearrangements per unit mass. Destruction is caused by power not energy.
