The last couple of weeks have been an absolute blast, but life has finally caught up. My finals have started. Between that and the fact that this is my last semester in college, I’m a bit tied up. I don’t want to post low-quality content and so here I am, so close to end the … More Bowing out.
I was about to write a short article on Quantum Physics, but stuff happened so I’ll post that up after the challenge. See ya tomorrow!
While doing a science experiment, a scientist needs to account for errors (that range from errors in her device to errors in her methodology). Through the course of her calculations, these errors propagate leading to a final error estimate in the result. Depending on the calculation she is doing, a small error in a measurement can lead … More PROPAGATION OF ERRORS
Reviving an old piece of flash fiction for this one! *inspired by the (then) recent news of there being weird space music in the archived recordings of NASA’s Apollo 10 mission (and other recent events which I will refrain from listing). This is work of fiction. (duh.) “It is my duty to inform you today, … More (Space) OPERA: Flash Fiction
Doing an experiment and not getting the desired results no matter how hard you try? Running late for an important meeting only to find out that your car has no petrol? Cheating on a test only to find out that the person you cheated from doesn’t know a thing either? Well, there’s a law for … More MURPHY’S LAW: The reason life is a train wreck.
Cheating on this A-Z post in more than one way. But oh well. It’s a sad that there is very little money to be made in academia. That’s all for today. The L post should be up soon. See ya!
In my post on FREE WILL, I talked about, how quantum mechanics adds a little uncertainty in the outcome of an experiment. This was first pondered upon by Heisenberg, who said that it is impossible to know the exact position and the exact velocity (or momentum) of a quantum particle simultaneously. Think of it this way. … More HEISENBERG’S UNCERTAINTY
