I love Physics, especially creating my own theories and formulas. I'm slow, but good at Math. I hope to be a Theoretical Physicist and a Mathematician one day. It's my ultimate aim to get a PhD. and a Nobel Prize in Physics by uncovering the secrets of the Universe. Please challenge my ideas as much as you can for I believe in constructive criticism. (I hate it when righties wear their watches on their right hands. Please stop doing it if you're one of them.)

comment Electrostatics - Inserting a brass plate between two charges
I think both the terms fit, the plate is "polarized" while charges are "induced" in the plate.

comment Image formation (lenses)
I believe that formula is given without considering the conventional directions that you have assumed, which is why you are getting the incorrect answer.

Your formula is wrong, there is a minus sign between the first and second terms! The formula you have used isfor a mirror.

comment How quickly should a fluid come to hydrostatic equilibrium?
I think that's quite innovative (I never would have thought of the pressure wave part)! Since gravity is non-impulsive, for its absence to be felt by the liquid should take 4-6 microseconds (theoretically an infinitesimal amount of time, delayed by viscosity and surface tension). So, .5 seconds is really a long time compared to the distension period.

comment Weird Kinematics Homework
Find 'x' using the height and 35°, next calculate the time taken to reach the gutter taking gravity into consideration. Finally, use the time and the value of 'x' to get the horizontal velocity which is constant. I sometimes find that these supposedly long and complicated problems have the simplest solutions. Let me know if it works!

revised How does $E=mc^2$ put an upper limit to velocity of a body?
Small grammar. Don't bother.
