thanks for the edit! I wasn't sure how to subscript them.

comment Rayleigh-Benard Convection
Alrighty sorry for the vague question. Now I am looking for information about why the RB convection is still being studied, a qualitative description of the process, which is backed up by a mathematical explanation. Also a mathematical explanation of where the critical Rayleigh number comes from would be nice. And on the side: how can I create an at home experiment to convince myself of the convection cells. @Qmechanic thanks for the edit!

comment Thermal expansion of Sphere
How small are we talking? I'm looking at the change in sea level by thermal expansion and so the change in V is kinda big. The section you linked to talks about using it for a cube, not a sphere. Does the shape make a difference?

comment Optics Paradox?
Thanks, I'm going to ponder over this for a bit until I become convinced.
