comment How's the energy of particle collisions calculated?
No, because you won't be able to accelerate it to higher energy, because this other particle is heavier and then if you accelerate it with say the LHC, you would need a higher magnetic field, which you don't have.

comment How's the energy of particle collisions calculated?
The reasoning to have the speed of the protons at such high energy is similar to that case: physics.stackexchange.com/questions/139/speed-of-neutrinos/… . Basically: E/E0 = gamma =~ 3500 and gamma = 1 / sqrt(1- (v/c)^2) , you can then extract v (should be 0.some9s * c ).

comment Law for tap water temperature
In any case this model, as a model could still be valid; you have an exchange coefficient and a delta T .

@Herb: As you said, to consider the transient solution, we need a model for the tube and the surrounding environment.

comment What are some useful ways to imagine the concept of spin as it relates to subatomic particles?
@j.c. I like your slogan !

@j.c. OK, I agree with that.

comment Book about classical mechanics
I find it hard to read, I was looking for something intermediate that would allow me to benefit from Arnold's book more easily.

While answering this question I realized that it was not a real, not argumentative question... You should change the question as @j.c. suggested.

Yes, Goldstein is great, but I am looking for more details on symplectig geometry. I'll have a look at the other one.
