comment Why do you get electric field of a light wave?
@John really? It can't be the intensity, since you can adjust E and B to your needs as long as the total energy is the same. Not sure of this, see my answer:/

comment Why do you get electric field of a light wave?
unfortunately, yes, since it still doesn't determine $A$. Unless I've misinterpreted the question--which I now think I have :/ . I thought the OP wanted the relation between a given light wave and the equation. +1 then :)

comment Why do you get electric field of a light wave?
Hmm, but doesn't the amplitude factor out and get cancelled here?

comment Infinite acceleration?
I guess there may be some newer theories which explain this, but really you just have to accept Newton's second law as fundamental :/

comment How does the process of freezing water remove salt?
@zephyr hmph. Didn't know that. :/ Oh well, now I do! :)

It does that? Or do you mean the other way around? Adding salt makes it harder to freeze.

comment How fictitious are fictitious forces?
@Ben its still not a force, so not a real force. But, it has the same effects of a force, so you consider it, and treat it like a force. It's more of a technicality that its's fictitious.

comment How fictitious are fictitious forces?
@Ben yep. Psuedoforces are equal to the mass of the body in question times the acceleration of the frame, in the opposite direction. And yes, Earth would be a strange place.

comment What is the cause of noise generation at my bike helmet
@John maybe not, see my comment above--that doesn't apply in that case. By the way, "eustachian" is spelled like "moustache" ;-)

comment What is the cause of noise generation at my bike helmet
I've experienced this in a different way.. In my apartment, on a windy day one could hear a ghost-like noise with the windows closed. Open 'em a crack and it disappeared. Must be some resonance effect or something. (If you want, I can add this to the question)

comment Centripetal force of a rotating rigid body?
@Ryan see above, the force balances out cos the 'string' points in all directions.

comment Centripetal force of a rotating rigid body?
@Ryan: There is a net CPF on every individual small element of the roundabout. Overall, the CPFs add up to zero. CPF only applies to small elements-- for a larger body the internal forces come into the picture (these can be calculated easily, though). Also note: whenever a constant-magnitude force is centripetal, i.e. it changes its direction to point at a particular point, then there will be no net translational motion.
