Just a guy trying to learn things on his own. If I've learned one thing in my (fairly short) existence as of yet, it is that you should not expect anyone else to do it for you.

comment Paper in physics - calculations; rounding or not?
@leftaroundabout I guess you could say that I'm "dumbing it down" for my teachers to read it fluently. I know this wouldn't be the case for a serious paper in a journal, but yeah..

comment Getting started with Landau Physics course
I believe if you're already an electrical engineer you should be good to go and just start

comment Magnitude of a photon?
@OndřejČernotík I'm pretty certain you are right. At least that's how I'd interpret it anyway.

comment So gravity turns things round
See arxiv.org/abs/1004.1091 , a very interesting paper which tackles your question for dwarf planets. Of course it has to do with the composition of the body. I'm not sure how to calculate it for humans, but you can probably use the fact that humans are 70% water.

comment How do you start self-learning physics
@JoeHobbit Albert Einstein flunked math? Yes, and Micheal Jordan was cut out of the high school basketball team, right? I hate these myths, they're purely manufactured by incompetent people, for incompetent people. Those people worked hard, stop making excuses.
