comment How does the voltage across an inductor and a capacitor vary in series LCR circuit about resonance?
I think if you include R then we wont get the infinities at \omega_0. Otherwise, it is consistent with my plots. Thanks.

I have edited the question to include the details of what I've tried.

Did you ignore R to simplify your calculations? I tried what you were doing but with R and I was thinking of plotting them using Mathematica beacuse I was having trouble doing it analytically. And I was working with the magnitude of the phasors.

This doesn't answer the question.

comment Have they really photographed light behaving both as a particle and a wave?
Yes, that is consistent with what I have read.

comment What are some open problems in classical electrodynamics?
@Qmechamic, I am more interested in what hft describes as "clever little problems based on basic material". I am not looking for a discussion on "problems" that are resolved by the corresponding quantum theory. That is why I mentioned "side problems".

Take a look at this question. It will clear your doubt physics.stackexchange.com/questions/113232/…

comment How to calculate the value of gravitational acceleration of my town
Both the formulas hold for different situations. I am thinking out loud here but I think what if we applied the latitude formula first to find the effective $g$ at that point and them used that value of $g$ as $g_0$ in the altitude formula, we might get a more precise value of g at the town which takes both factors into account? I am having doubts because as Qmechanic pointed out in the comment that the assumption that the earth is spherically symmetric (as we did in deriving the altitude formula) is inconsistent with the fact that earth is spinning.

comment How to calculate the value of gravitational acceleration of my town
Well, I plugged in the numbers into both formulas. And the 'altitude formula' gives a value of $9.79m/s^2$ and the 'latitude formula' gives $9.77m/s^2$. (I stand corrected, both of them give nearly equal values)

comment How does this “simple” electric train work?
Thank you for the explanation. Is the Lorentz's Force law F=q(vXB) the main equation behind this?

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.

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.
