comment Particle physics getting started
Why has this question not received as much attention as other book-recommendation questions? Generally the answers are many, diverse and exhaustive.

Thats a really profound statement! :)

The answer by Ben Crowell says that the Mach's principle is false?

Are you sure its zero? I have distictly read that its not.

comment What is the Earth truly rotating about/revolving around?
Yes definately. But I am talking about higher order effects :)

comment What is the Earth truly rotating about/revolving around?
Not really I think. If I plot the $\phi$ of the plane of the rotation of the plane of the bob with time, I will see the discrepancies. I can separate the first order, second order deviations and associate them with different kinds of motion.

But if someone carries out an experiment precisely and for long enough all effects will come into picture.

Whoever downvoted this answer, can you please comment?

comment What is the physical significance of the off-diagonal moment of inertia matrix elements?
This is a good question. The answers to the question given in the link are not satisfactory maybe because of the diversion created by improper framing of the question, so don't mark this as duplicate.

Yeah. I don't think there could be any other catch in the question

I am sorry I didn't mean to be rude! Sorry :/ I thought he was asking for the non-operator approach.

How is this helpful? He knows how to do it using ladder operators..

Have you had a course on relativity? Because that's what is messing up things.

comment What's wrong with this application of Thomas Precession to circular motion velocity measurements?
(1) Yes, so that's settled. (2) I agree, it still doesn't give the answer. I am trying.

comment A different proof for 6 degrees of freedom
Yes. As I said, I am aware of this proof. Can you show how the minimal number of constraints is (3N-6)?

comment Harmonic oscillator - wavefunctions
There is no "easiest way", there is just a standard way. But see Griffiths, Introduction to Quantum Mechanics for an intuitive, explanatory approach.

This is still not giving the correct answer, something else is wrong too.
