comment Why does a gas get hot when suddenly compressed? What is happening at the molecular level?
Ok, so question: once the system has cooled off in temperature and reached equilibrium with the surroundings, is the average speed of each molecule the same as it was before being compressed?

revised What does the differential of $d_s\sin(\theta) = m\lambda$ help us see, with respect to waves through diffraction gratings?

In this new light (better verbage), I'd rather just use the original equation (not its derivative) since I already know what the equation is and don't have to worry about finding any sort of anti-derivative.

Thanks. Nice info. This is what I realized when I replaced the word "differential" with "derivative" which makes SO much more sense! I couldn't understand what they meant by the second equation being the differential of the first. It makes more sense to say that the second equation is the derivative of the first and can be used to find small differentials of the values in the first equation.

Aaah true, so "diffraction of waves through small slits."

comment What is the name and value of the constant that relates to electrons and that coincidentally has the same exact value as the speed of light?
hahaha.. well too bad my reputation can't go below 1. ;)

lol.. but isn't there ONLY one such constant? I just can't recal what it's called... but it's very interesting!
