Hey /sci/, can you give me some tips on finding textbook pdf?
Ebookee used to be my to-go place but most of the links are dead now. I've been combing google for hours but couldn't find any of my textbook.
Can any of you help out a fellow scientist please?
-introduction to molecular thermodynamics by hanson and green
-The elements of physical chemistry 6th edition by atkins
-Quanta, matter and Change - a molecular approach to physical chemistry by Atkins, de Paula and Friedman
-Physical Chemistry-A Molecular Approach. McQuarrie and Simon
-Molecular Quantum Mechanics. Atkins and Friedman
-Biochemistry 3rd by matthews, van holde, appling and anthony-cahill
-the organic chemistry of biological pathways by Mcmurry and begley
-Advanced organic chemistry by bernard miller 2nd edition
These are some of my txtbooks this semester, PLEASE HELP ;_;
What's so bad about INFPs?

So, I'm a medical student, but I'm also an INFP, a friend of mine seems to think this means I'm destined to fail at medicine.
I'm not sure what the NF means, but my friend was able to explain about perceiving and judging and I already knew about introverted/extroverted. That being said, from what I do understand, I'm introverted, which just means I do a lot of extra-research because I'd rather be doing that than socializing a lot of the time. And if I withhold judgment wouldn't that make me good at diagnosis?
My friend does neuroscience, so I tend to trust his opinions on these matters, and looking the type up on Wikipedia it thinks I'd make a great writer which, oddly enough, makes sense to me. I never thought of it as a career path but I genuinely do love to write, just for my own satisfaction. If I don't write anything for a while I tend to get grumpy and/or every other thing I say is some sort of pun.
Anyway, before this gets any more self-indulgent, what do you guys think? About personality tests? About my personality (doing the test I scored really high on every factor except I, which was 20, everything else was 60+. I dunno what that means, but maybe someone else does?)

A cannon fires a cannonball 500.0m downrange at a 45.0 degree angle. At what velocity does the cannonball leave the cannon?
This is one a physics review sheet involving a lot of v=d/t type of problems, though most supply the velocity and ask for time. (Easy)
I don't understand what to do with this problem, and the answer is already supplied. [70 m/s] I'd prefer to understand how to get to the answer rather that just copy it down, though.
Oh, and please define variables in whatever equations and try to make this as clear as possible, please.

>Hey, I am a NASA high school engineer scholar and would like some help answering a challenge problem if anyone would care helping...
A Shuttle must perform the de-orbit burn to change its orbit so that the perigee, the point in the orbit closest to Earth, is inside of Earth's atmosphere. De-orbit maneuvers are done to lower the perigee of the orbit to 60 miles (or less). An altitude of 60 miles is important because this is where the orbiting spacecraft is recaptured by Earth’s gravity and re-enters Earth’s atmosphere.
Calculate the minimum change in velocity (delta V or ?V) required for the Space Shuttle to decrease its altitude to 60 miles if it’s orbiting with an apogee of 236 miles and a perigee of 205 miles above the surface of Earth.
Use the rule of thumb that below an altitude of 500 miles, for every 2 feet per second (ft/s) change in the orbiting space craft’s velocity its altitude will change by 1 mile.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Things are terrible, but I feel OK. Not "good," but OK. Still, College isn't the same anymore. I'm not "excited" about it. I regret my decisions, but I feel that I've learned some valuable lessons, and that I've matured greatly from this experience.
Does ANYONE hear know that feel?

I'm currently doing my AH chemistry investigation on a thermometric titration between HCl and NaOH/ CH3COOH and NaOH, and I need to find some decent sources for background theory.
Also, in the guide for the experiment, it just says "make graph with results", which is fine, but then it says "find enthalpy of neutralisation", which I am not sure how to do.

I am learning french, and i'm wondering if anyone knows of any good french resources. I.e. websites that check grammar, actually good movies in french, french news, ect...
Pic related, Frechet is french and discovered metric spaces. So general metric space theorem discussion.
