### Looking for a mathematical model that explains the increase of heat intensity while time is going on

Consider we are overloading a CPI device with many tasks. It is obvious that the CPU temperature goes up when the time is increasing. Is there anyone who can help with modeling this phenomenon?

### How to take the derivative of an eigenvalue equation in quantum mechanics?

Equation 2.1 is $$H_0(t)\vert n \rangle = E_n\vert n \rangle$$ Equation 2.8 is $$\langle m \vert \partial_tn \rangle = \frac{\langle m \vert \partial_tH_0 \vert n \rangle}{E_n-E_m}$$ In the following ...

### Converting air pressure to depth in water

So I am trying to measure water depth using the air line method. The water level can vary. An open ended tube is submerged in water and then filled with compressed air to purge all water that entered ...

### Band theory of Photonic crystals

I have a basic question about the band structure of photonic crystals. If I have a periodic potential, then Bloch-theory tells me that the bands yield the energy spectrum of the Hamilonian which is ...

### Due to time dilation and space contraction, what would happen if we were massless and able to be take a ride on a photon what would we experience? [duplicate]

If photons and gluons that have no mass travel at the speed of light and therefore have no sense of time or space due to time dilation and space contraction, what would happen if we were able to be ...

### Proper time while going up in a gravitational field

Feynman, in his book 'Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman' refers to a problem he once gave one of Einstein's assistants at Princeton. The problem goes something like this: You blast off in a rocket ...

### Use of functional derivative in derivation of Einstein Field Equations

I'm trying to understand the derivation of the Einstein field equations through the stationary action principle. I've found a pretty clear explanation on the Wikipedia article for the Einstein-Hilbert ...

### Question regarding finding Torque [closed]

In this question I am supposed to find the magnitude of $Torque$. Now the particle of mass m rotates in a circular orbit ,so it experiences $Centripetal$ $Force$. Now since the radius of the circle in ...

### What is the wave function of a field?

I've just started QFT. While I'm learning it using the path integral formalism, I think there is another way which is the canonical representation which I didn't learn yet. Nevertheless, in Quantum ...

### A question On the deviation of the magnetic field in a solenoid using ampere's law and why we chose a specific ampereian loop

When we derive the magnetic field in a solenoid using ampere's law, we usually consider an ampereian loop such that it's bisected by one side of the transverse section of the solenoid (like in the ...

### Is it true to say no refraction takes place when a ray comes along normal drawn to interface?

Many books and websites in our country say that there are two conditions for no refraction of light: If index of Refraction of media on both sides is same. If the ray of light falls normally on the ...

### How to proceed in this? Like about what should I take the integral [closed]

I tried solving it using general integration of the electric field from 2a to 2b and was disastrously unsuccessful. “A point charge q is situated at a distance d from one end of a thin non conducting ...

### Partial measurement of a Two-Mode Squeezed Vacuum state

It seems that if you measure a quadrature on the first mode, let's say $\hat{q}$, on a TMSVS, the second mode will collapse into a coherent state $|q+it\rangle$ Is this true ? What is then the value ...

### In a 1D Frame is it possible for $S=|S|$? [closed]

As written before, if we use the correct units, and represent each vector with a real number and unit such as $5m$ and $-5m$ can we have $|S|=S=5m$?
