A student and enthusiastic programmer. Love learning Physics! And I make android apps as a hobby.

This will make a great and interesting site : Puzzling. Please follow it

Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Puzzling

Please support Mechanical Engineering. There are many questions on PhysicsSE site related to engineering, which do not get answered because they are off-topic.

comment Why can two (or more) electric field lines never cross?
If I had a penny for every time this question was asked on this site (not directly, so I don't think this could be a duplicate)

comment Simultaneous Charging and Discharging Capacitor
You have got the concept of a capacitor horribly wrong. A capacitor in the very basic sense is two conducting plates placed parallel to and not touching each other. When you apply a potential difference across these plates, charge accumulates on them and the capacitor gets charged.

comment Why $A\sin(2\pi ft) =\frac{A}{2j}(e^{j2\pi ft}-e^{-j2\pi ft})$ but not $\frac{A}{2}(e^{j2\pi ft}-e^{-j2\pi ft})$?
This is a math question dealing with basics about complex numbers. You should post it on math.stackexchange.com

comment Free fall from space
ZilbermanRafael What is happening here is that the acceleration $a$ is changing with $r$ when you go to a large height of 500km. Near the surface, this acceleration is equal to $g=-10m/s^2$ and it is approximately constant for small heights. To solve your problem what you have to do is use $GM/r^2$ as you acceleration, and then proceed with solving the differential equation in $r$ and $t$. As @garyp suggests, this requires a certain level of knowledge in calculus.

comment How does a Photocell/Photoresistor work?
Did you read Wikipedia? It explains the basic functioning of an LDR quite well. If you want a more detailed explanation probably about the function of CdS , specify it in the question.

comment Equation of motion for a falling rod (with one end touching a frictionless surface)
@Austin Gravity isn't the only force on the rod, there is a normal force on the rod too from the ground.

comment Where is the basketball event horizon?
I haven't checked the math, and there is a chance this is not possible. I leave that for you to determine.

comment Choosing proper centripedal force in Newtonian gravitational forces
What you need is a proper scale-down factor to try and fit large orbits of satellites around the earth onto your screen so everything is visible properly. What you need to scale-down here is not earth's mass, but the radii of the orbits. So let the mass of the earth be the same, and also the definition of other units, and try to simulate the exact distances which would exist. Then scale-down to make the simulation fit your screen (eg. 500 mtrs -> 50 pixels)
