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?
63 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: wwswq.png]
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.

Let's say we figure out the God particle/Higgs boson/whatever it's called now to a similar extent that we've figured out atoms: i.e. we have enough info to (relatively) safely use the thing for economic and possibly (who am I kidding, DEFINITELY) military purposes.
What is the result of this, in laymen's terms? I try to read about it on Google and all I get are physics and science words that I don't understand. What would the Higgs boson bring to the 99% of the world that doesn't understand the ramifications of simply "We preicted it, we found it, here's a bunch of equations and shit that you can't understand, brb quantum physicists-only circlejerk."
Space Elevator Incoming?

>“The new CNT fibers have a thermal conductivity approaching that of the best graphite fibers but with 10 times greater electrical conductivity,” said study co-author Marcin Otto, business development manager at Teijin Aramid. “Graphite fibers are also brittle, while the new CNT fibers are as flexible and tough as a textile thread. We expect this combination of properties will lead to new products with unique capabilities for the aerospace, automotive, medical and smart-clothing markets.”
>The phenomenal properties of carbon nanotubes have enthralled scientists from the moment of their discovery in 1991. The hollow tubes of pure carbon, which are nearly as wide as a strand of DNA, are about 100 times stronger than steel at one-sixth the weight. Nanotubes’ conductive properties — for both electricity and heat — rival the best metal conductors. They also can serve as light-activated semiconductors, drug-delivery devices and even sponges to soak up oil.

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.
