 Nov 7 awarded Critic Jun 30 awarded Teacher Apr 1 revised Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation changed 'drops exponentially' to just 'drops'. Apr 1 revised Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation corrected equation for D(T). Mar 31 answered Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation Mar 29 awarded Commentator Mar 29 comment Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation Because if someone asked you what a damping coefficient is, that equation is exactly what you would have to write down. The physics doesn't depend on what it's called, it depends on its quantitative definition and no more, which is exactly what I wrote down. Mar 27 comment Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation I did, because I wrote the definition of $\gamma$, which is a lot more than just the name. Mar 26 comment Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation I did, actually, in the 4th line: $v_t=F/\gamma$ (it's the damping coefficient). Mar 25 revised Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation added 6 characters in body Mar 25 revised Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation Made the question more condensed and clear. Mar 25 comment Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation Could you give me any references? Do remember that I am not talking about the ideal gas law here. Mar 25 comment Do the properties of two streams flowing into an engine add together when they mix? Extensive properties add, intensive properties average by weight of whatever physical quantity they are intensive in. Mar 25 asked Behaviour of individual terms in Einstein-Smoluchowski fluctuation-dissipation relation Feb 18 revised Sideways motion between a vertical launch from a planet and landing added 124 characters in body Feb 18 comment Sideways motion between a vertical launch from a planet and landing While I can of course write to you (because I know you), it would help if you laid out the answer more completely right here, in the spirit of this website. (This post is supposed to be helpful for anyone who thinks of this question and arrives here.) Feb 18 revised Sideways motion between a vertical launch from a planet and landing increased clarity Feb 18 comment Sideways motion between a vertical launch from a planet and landing @MichaelBrown, so essentially the object gets the energy from the atmosphere via drag? Where did the atmosphere get its motion from? The surface? All the way up to the top? And you see there needs to be constant feeding of energy to maintain this motion. Could you please elaborate a bit? Feb 18 asked Sideways motion between a vertical launch from a planet and landing Jun 11 awarded Scholar
