I'm a software developer in NYC working at Fog Creek Software. I have interned (Software Engineering) for a total of about 13 months spread among Gridpoint, Skyline Innovations, and Fog Creek Software. I graduated from the College of William and Mary in 2012 with a double major in Computer Science and Physics and a minor in Math.

comment Is speed of light and sound rational or irrational in nature?
@BobJarvis "Defined by" definitely doesn't mean "defined as". Specifically, its the distance traveled by light in 1/299,792,458 of a second.

@DavidZ Yeah, my phrasing wasn't terribly precise. By "the speed of light in m/s" I really meant c/(1 m/s).

In the metric system, the meter is defined by the distance light travels through a vacuum in one second, so the speed of light in m/s is definitionally rational.

comment Why does wavelength affect diffraction?
You stuffed the actual answer to the question in one sentence near the end. I don't see how "oh, and travel length to weight is based on wavelength" gives any intuition - you just stated what happens. The whole setup is only useful if you can explain why travel length->weight is dependent on wavelength.
