comment How do I properly calculate the curl of the Aharonov-Bohm flux line vector potential?
Of course that is only the $\boldsymbol e_z$ part, the rest is identically zero.

comment How do I properly calculate the curl of the Aharonov-Bohm flux line vector potential?
$\nabla \times \boldsymbol A = \frac{1}{r} \partial_r r \frac{\Phi}{2\pi r} = \frac{\Phi}{2\pi r} \partial_r 1 = 0$. Or something like that.

comment How do I properly calculate the curl of the Aharonov-Bohm flux line vector potential?
Right, and where does the naive approach (i.e. filling in the curl directly) actually go wrong? I'm still unable to pinpoint exactly which step is illegal/wrong and how to perform that step generically in a mathematically correct way. Thanks.

comment What is the speed of sound in space?
I've always found temperature to lose its usefulness when it comes to either near-vacuum or super-reactive plasma's like the quark-gluon plasma. I just think to much in terms of the pressure a gas exerts or the frequency spectrum a solid emits as temperatue I guess.

comment Evidence that stationary masses in space actually attract each other
@Alexandru: Brian Greene's "Fabric of the Cosmos" has a very well-written chapter (Chapter 3, to be exact) on this aspect of and the development of our understanding of spacetime. Perhaps it can help you grasp the concepts involved better than a physics-oriented answer.

"insection": n., the intersection between inspection, inception, perception, and introspection. ;-)

comment Electric Field inside a regular polygon with corner charges
I'm having a hard time believing that there are other force-free points in say, a triangle or square of equal charges. Care to share an explicit example of where on the symmetry axes of these shapes you think the points must lie?
