comment Why we cannot use Gauss's Law to find the Electric Field of a finite-length charged wire?
@leocod: If you don't want to wait for another answer and are satisfied with this one, you can "accept" it by clicking the green tick next to it :)

comment Trajectory of projectile thrown downhill
Alright, it's independent of $g$. My formula is $R=\frac{2u^2}{g\cos\varphi}\left(\cos\theta\sin(\varphi+\theta)\right)$, maximum at $\theta=\frac\pi2-\frac\varphi2$. What's yours?

comment Trajectory of projectile thrown downhill
@S.RobertJames: I think that the answer is dependent upon the ratio of the initial speed to gravity.

comment A person weighing 100 N stands on some bathroom scales in a lift. If the scales show a reading of 110 N, which way is he going
That's fine, just don't give the final answer. :)

comment Infinitely charged wire and Differential form of Gauss' Law
Ahh I see. Though when talking about Maxwell's equations, differential f orm' has a specific meaning.

comment Why does the higher pressure of air underneath an aeroplane wing keep it flying?
Link-only answers are frowned upon here, please provide at least an overview of what is said there. In this case, the question is pretty simple, so a full answer wouldn't hurt.

comment Infinitely charged wire and Differential form of Gauss' Law
+1 for actually doing the math. But you've missed out on the differential form of Gauss' law ($\nabla\vec E=\rho$). $\vec E=-\nabla\phi$ is NOT the diff form of Gauss' law.

Please only give hints and partial solutions to homework problems, not a full solution.

comment Calculating eccentricity from semi-major axis, position and velocity of particles
@Mithra: knowing only these see hint 2. Pretend to know everything, then find relations and reduce your variables. And btw, this is only a 2D system. I don't know about any easier methods.

comment Explain these graphs of rotation and velocity of pucks on air hockey board
You don't need to correct it, any symbol is correct. You just need to specify.

comment Is the free energy bounded
Yes, but it still can be bounded once you set a datum. The bound depends upon the choice of datum, that's all.

comment No attraction radially in an cylinder of spherical magnets
Could you add some diagrams/pics of the situation? It's really hard to understand how you are adding the little ball and all.
