comment Fringe Pattern Brightness for Young's Double-slit experiment
To explain the theta dependence you have to derive the diffraction integral which requires calculus.

comment Fringe Pattern Brightness for Young's Double-slit experiment
The brightness will be equal if you consider the effect of interference only. But the brightness will fall off if take into account the phenomena diffraction along with interference.

comment Principle of Caratheodory and The Second Law of Thermodynamics
I would definitely look it up. Thank you. This discussion has been very helpful.

comment Principle of Caratheodory and The Second Law of Thermodynamics
I still can't see how the concept of increase of entropy comes out of this for an irreversible process. ( I'm getting the feeling that this works only for reversible processes ).

Can you elaborate on point 2? How does this distinction exactly melt away?

comment Physical motivation for differentiation under the integral
Actually the examples from Quantum mechanics would show how neat (and essential) this trick is.

comment What are some good resources for learning how to apply vectors in physics?
See, what you are actually doing is taking the projection of the vector along the line joining a vertex to the center. Think along this line and you shall find the answer.

comment What are some good resources for learning how to apply vectors in physics?
It is a very simple problem. Think about the angle that B makes with the line joining the center and taking the cosine component

You can post that specific problem here as a homework question and everyone can take a look.
