comment Basic magnet through a copper coil experiment - What if poles were rotated 90 degress
@RodgersandHammertime I don't think that exists like a subject by itself. It's just analysing the system and trying to understand it by "seeing" the field lines and how the move over time. I don't think it's really complicated but the way I've learned it has been just by doing lots of problems.

In that post, the guy has edited it to say it's wrong. I think my answer is right, just by symmetry, actually, you have posted my answer there and they have told you it's right.

comment Entropy exchange of a free fall
Thanks, with this I "intuitively" saw the thing ""all the potential energy must become internal energy of the sand"". What my textbook wanted me to do is, as we're ignoring every drag or energy transferred to the ground, to consider all the potential energy as the heat transmited to the sand bag and just do $dS=dQ/T\Rightarrow \Delta S=mgh/T$ to calculate the entropy difference. I understand that this is no realistic at all.

comment Entropy exchange of a free fall
I don't understand your last line (entropy change of the bag can never be neglected) I'm not doing that, I'm calculating it, I'm not supposing the entropy doesn't change because I'm calculating it. The problem explicitly says to suppose the temperature doesn't change from the impact, just to make calculations easier, what doesn't have anything to do with my doubt about the sign of the entropy, as supposing a change of the temperature to estimate that sign generates the same problem I'm in.

comment Why Does Light Not Become Polarized In A Magnetic and/or Electric Field?
Just by superposition of waves: if you have an electric or magnetic field on a region of space and light goes through it, within that region the fields will sum to each other, and be the same as in the beginning when the leave that region.

revised How does the voltage between two charged sheets change if change their distance
Just a couple of epsilons so noone confuses them with E electric fields.

Thank you very much, that was more than enough, I know how to get that Maxwell relation. You've already solved me a couple of headaches.

comment How does the voltage between two charged sheets change if change their distance
@BenediktBauer You can't get a general formula in the case in which you can't ignore boundary effects. When you need values of field or voltage in complex cases like that one, you generally use numerical methods (computers) to get numerical values, but you can't get formulas. That's how pictures like the first one in my answer are done, by numerical approximations, that with computers can have huge preccisions.

comment Irreversible process
I'm sorry for the lack of information, the expansion is not free, it's a fast expansion to an external pressure of 1 bar, being the initial internal pressure 4 bars. Anyway, you helped and following "more or less" your same path I got the correct result. Thanks.
