comment Photoelectric Effect - How are the electrons regained?
Yeah, you are right. I wanted to mention the conservation of charge, perhaps that would have been more clear, though less poetic.

I suggest you rephrase your question without such terms. perhaps you may find some insight there.

comment What interesting physics problems can't be solved because mathematics is not developed enough?
Sometimes, the mathematics is too complicated. An example I can think of a closed form solution for the Navier-Stokes equations.

Please refrain from using terms such as "know" or "decide" when discussing physics as you will only confuse yourself more..

comment plasma pressure initial condition
I am working with a colleague who has already measured the plasma plume using shadowgraphy. I want my simulation to not rely on experimental data but capture the physics from the equations.. The way they did it really takes away from their otherwise great experimental work, to be honest

comment plasma pressure initial condition
thanks.. I read on and I found it.. I am working on a simulation of the plasma plume expansion and I am trying to find a suitable b.c. for this problem without experimentally determined values
