I'm an undergraduate majoring in pure Mathematics and Electrical Engineering. In addition to the two fields mentioned above, I'm very interested in the fields of Physics, Computer Programming (Python), Web Design, Philosophy, and English. I really like music (especially elctronic, club house, pop, etc.), art (Dali, Picaso, Kandinsky, Sandro Botticelli, etc.), gaming, and good humor to mention a few. I'd like to go in more detail, but can't since I'm mostly on a tight schedule.

comment Clarification regarding Newton's Third Law of Motion and why movement is possible
@Anuar Then how does conservation of energy work? If two objects apply an equal but opposite force on the other, then kinematics and experiment tells us, the objects will not move since there will be no net force.

That clears things up nicely, thanks!

comment What constitutes an observation/measurement in QM?
First, wow really nice reply. Thanks! If I read correctly, are you saying that a QM system can decohere differently for different observers? If so, what is the limit to this subjectivity? For example, can two observers view a particle going in opposite directions at the same time?

comment What is a good way to reason in physics?
Thank you for the reply. When we're solving problems in courses there usually isn't much data, if any, to check against. It's usually just a set up, question, and maybe an answer. So it seems trial and error would be difficult to do in these cases. By agreement I mean, if there is no system dictating what isn't and is allowed as far as assumptions and moves in reasoning go, then answers could vary depending on who you ask. So, then there isn't necessarily agreement among the people who attempt the problem.

Thank you for the reply. This strategy only seems to be viable A's long A's I'm looking at the answer to begin with. And even in those cases I've found that I'm sometimes left completely in the blue as to how the author derived the answer. Also, it seems this process will vary for different people when a problem is being solved whose answer isn't already "known".

Doesn't it fit the education tag? I'm really just asking for strategies, not a discussion. If you agree, can you open the question again? I should probably have mentioned I'm only looking for an answer for the numbered questions.
