Interested in thinking about new things and new ways of looking at old things.

comment Why are some variables summed infinitesimally and others aren't?
See Edit. I calculus, the second derivative is used to describe curvature. In transport theory, it is used to describe diffusion process.

comment Is there a chance an object isn't where we think it is?
Do not push uncertainty principle too far, especially when discussing things like coins etc. that are macroscopic.

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..

too much effort to explain something so simple.. what a waste!

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
