• Physics relevance to Electrical Engineering?

Currently a sophomore in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I'm doing physics at the moment and I'm god awful at it. This sparked my anger and now out of curiosity I'm wondering how this is even important? I don't think I need to calculate the point charges in anything I ever do in engineering, nor do I need to know how the... show more

• Physics question?

Professional ping-pong players can hit a ball at speeds approaching 70 mph. A ping pong table is 2.74m long by 1.525mand wide. If a player hits a ball at this speed along with the diagonal of the table, how long will it take? Acceleration due to air his assistance at this speed is extreme, about +/-50 m/s2

• Calc III torque question?

A torque wrench grips a bolt at the origin of coordinates, with the free end of the torque wrench located at the point (r_0, 0, 0).The force on this end of the torque wrench points in the direction of V = <10, 0, 16>. Note that r = <r0, 0, 0> in this problem. Compute the length of the lever arm L needed to produce a torque with... show more

• How do i solve this physics problem?

When a light beam with a wavelength of 700 nm affects a certain metal surface, the maximum energy of the electrons emitted by photoelectric effect is 0.7 eV. Calculate the metal work function and the threshold frequency to achieve photoelectric effect. Does the photoelectric effect occur for wavelengths above or below the threshold... show more

• Will it be possible to make a production car that can do the quarter-mile in 9.06 sec?

Looks like the Dodge Demon is the closest to achieve it, at 9.65 sec! The reason I ask that is because that would mean that it was accelerating at an average 1g acceleration for the entire run. So you'd be feeling Earth's gravity on your bottom and on your back at the same time!

• I have a space station creating artificial gravity via linear acceleration. how would you use momentum to find the stations fuel consumption?

Im pretty sure the calculations involve energy, but Im not too sure. You can make up any values that are needed. e.g mass, velocity etc. It just has to show how much fuel is consumed in accelerating the space craft such that I can calculate the cost. Thankyou!
