comment In a circular pendulum, where does the equation $v=\sqrt{rg\tan{\alpha}}$ come from?
@Garmen1778: It falls under the [homework] tag, regardless of it being homework. See the link above.

Do NOT give full solutions to [homework] problems. Only hints. See meta.physics.stackexchange.com/questions/714/…

comment Capacitors in series
@jak the E field isn't zero.. If you have opposing charges, then they reinforce not cancel each other--they are on opposite sides and E is a vector. Put a negative charge in between and note that both plates pull/push it in the same direction.

comment Why do you get electric field of a light wave?
@John, we do have differ emt interpretations.. I thought he wanted to calculate the constants given the params of the wave. Your interpretation seems to be more correct :)

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 :)

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! :)

comment How does the process of freezing water remove salt?
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.
