Hi /sci/ I have some number sequences that I can't figure out. Maybe you can help. A) 135, 791, ?, 151 B) 138, 257, ?, 132 C) 24, 16, 25, 66, ?, 36

Can a sample have a % Transmittance greater than 100%? Pic related. I have a sample conjugated polymer film on Indium Tin Oxide coated glass. Focusing on the blue curve, at ~1200 nm the %T goes beyond 100%. It appears to be an index match issue. Does anyone have any references that explain this phenomena?

After robbing a bank in Dodge City, a robber gallops off at 12 mi/h. 30 minutes later, the marshall leaves to pursue the robber at 16 mi/h. How long (in hours) does it take the marshall to catch up to the robber? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

Ask an expert on calculus anything.

So: (0) minus (-1) equals (1). How else can I express this?

Do we have scientific evidence that mathematics exists? I hear from people that the universe is governed by mathematics and this expression doesn't seem right. It almost sounds as if the universe came up with mathematics.

Damn. I just had a moment of clarity about what I believed to be the universe but now that I have gone to type it in /sci/ i have forgotten it. Fuck.

How does the reverse pyramid boarding strategy for airlines work?

If You're so smart, why can't You name this bird?

What's the chemical difference between burning with a flame and just smouldering?

Dear /sci/, I am a masters student in physics currently studying in London and I am in need of some ideas with where to take my major project. The title I have been given is "Characterizing The Human Transfer Function With The Wii Balance Board". The Wii board/Wiimotes/etc. are hooked up via bluetooth to my laptop using some linux specific python libraries. ANYWAY... The project is extremely vague and has to justify 200-400 hours work or so. My supervisor said he is there to provide some guidance and the such but not to tell me what to do. tldr: Ideas for where I can take this?

Alright, smartasses, Explain breathing and photosynthesis.

Quick question /sci/ When you get a sports injury, medical personal say RICEs Isn't RICES detrimental? The human body naturally repairs itself by increasing blood flow. By Icing and compressing and elevating, your reducing blood flow. Isn't that detrimental?

what's a formal and basic introduction to ODEs? something that only assumes knowledge of single variable calculus and linear algebra and it's formal

So I'm working on my senior research paper and unlike the rest of my classmates who chose boring and mundane topics, mine will be over the theoretical existence of Whiteholes (a blackhole's counterpart). I'd love to hear any insight /sci/ might be willing to share. This includes personal knowledge, links to books or pages, and possible Skype interviews if possible!

In his book 'Relativity: The Special and General Theory', Einstein gives a seemingly simple and elegant derivation of the Lorentz transformation which goes as follows: he considers the 'equations of motion' of a light signal in the unprimed and primed frame (1) x-ct=0 (2) x'-ct'=0 and correspondingly for a light signal travelling along the negative x-axis: (1a) x+ct=0 (2a) x'+ct'=0 (note that Eqs.(1a) and (2a) are not written explicitly in Einstein's book (see here)). From these equations, he concludes then (3) x'-ct'= ?.(x-ct) (4) x'+ct'= ?.(x+ct) and by adding and subtracting Eqs.(3) and (4) he gets the formal Lorentz transformation (5a) x' = ax -bct (5b) ct' = act -bx where (6) a= (?+?)/2 (7) b= (?-?)/2 . Now it is obvious that the equations (1),(2) on the one hand and (1a),(2a) on the other are algebraically inconsistent unless the first set of equations is restricted to x,x'>0 in the first case and x,x'<0 in the second. So the generalized Eqs.(3) and (4) must then be restricted in the same sense in order not to violate the original constraint. But Einstein simply ignores this, and assumes that (3) and (4) hold both for positive and negative x,x' in order to be able to add and subtract the equations.

Is it possible for a planet to have season lengths that are variable as in the Game of Thrones series, or A Song of Ice and Fire? Like, have a winter that lasts a few (Earth) months followed by a few months of summer/autumn followed by a winter that lasts 5 years?

Hey guys, post some every day problems for me to *attempt* to fix with an engineering solution. Kind of a hobby of mine, will post results if possible. Would prefer a rather "simple" every day problem, Cant cure world hunger or make a never ending beer. Thanks fellas

How would you compute the 1000th derivative of e^{x}sin(x)

Why the domain of definition of this function ln(x+?(x2+1)) is R? I can't figure it out :/
