comment Trains travelling at different speeds towards a station C
@Rushil: Yep, so they wanted you to interpret it that way. I hate it when questions are of the form "YOU tell me what I mean". :/

comment mechanism of annihilation
I would phrase it that annihilation is a part of the theory that envelops the electroweak force, I guess.

comment Trains travelling at different speeds towards a station C
By the way, this is a nice problem that I ask others sometimes. Half of them create a recursive relation and whatnot :)

comment How does Newton's 2-prism experiment help to explain why light does not get dispersed into 7-colors in a parallel glass slab?

@Pygmalion: Try not to give full steps for a homework problem, just give concepts.

@Aer: He meant that you should "accept" the answer via the green tick if you feel that it has answered your question (and you don't want to wait and see if there's a better one)

comment What could we observe if we see a 4 dimensional object and how could it change our physics view about our universe ?
@RonMaimon: Aah, I see--makes sense to look at it as an extension from a point. I didn't know that about pairwise gluing, thanks :)

Oh, square-pyramid-thingy. I think there can be two distinct square pyramids in 4D--one would have 6 tetrahedral and one cuboidal face, the other would 4 cuboidal and one tetrahedral face. Or something like that--I'm hopelessly confused :)

revised Isn't the uncertainty principle just non-fundamental limitations in our current technology that could be removed in a more advanced civilization?

Wouldn't a pentachoron give a tetrahedral and not rectangular projection?

comment Calculating capacitance of arbitrary plate shape and arrangement.
If it's arbitrary, it really depends--you can give yourself some differential equations and solve them, I guess. Of course, for any set of parallel plates, it's pretty easy :)

Knew there was a word for the interpretation! Just couldn't remember. :)
