comment What is the physics of tilt compensation of an electronic compass
What you are referring to is called declination. It has nothing to do with tilt-compensation. Thanks anyway.

comment Book reviewing current state of research on complex networks
@Bzazz The fact that my question was closed as "off topic" led me to conclude that there are no research physicists in this forum. Since you do work in the field, do you know of any good texts? What literature do the members of your group recommend to new PhD candidates to help orient themselves in the field and its recent developments? If you have an answer which does not fit into a comment, let me know and we will find a way.

comment Calculating mass of object by lifting edge
Thanks for the answer. It was actually not a homework question but I had an engineering problem where I needed to find the weight of an installed lid. Many thanks.

comment Calculating mass of object by lifting edge
@Pygmalion What are you thinking of? It is ok to make generic assumptions regarding mass and dimensons.
