PHY 2049: Physics II Tutoring Center is open in room NPB 1100, M-F 10:00AM -3:00PM. It is free. Hopefully all webassign problems have been solved. Please see me immediately after the class if there is still an issue.
PHY 2049: Physics II About bicycle riding: If some one shows you a trick, it means that, It is possible to do that trick The person who showed you, can do the trick. It does not mean that you can do the trick. Try it a lot of times and you can too.
Electric fields from different geometrical objects. wires Rings and disks Planes Another algorithm Al-Khwarizmi the Persian astronomer and mathematician, wrote a treatise in Arabic in 825 AD, On Calculation with Hindu Numerals, which was translated into Latin in the 12th century as Algoritmi de numero Indorum, which title was likely intended to mean "Algoritmi on the numbers of the Indians", where "Algoritmi" was the translator's rendition of the author's name; but people misunderstanding the title treated Algoritmi as a Latin plural and this led to the word "algorithm" (Latin algorithmus) coming to mean "calculation method". The intrusive "h" is most likely due to a false cognate with Greek αριθμος arithmos = "number". mathematicianArabicGreek (wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algorithm#Etymology
PHY 2049: Physics II Gauss’ theorem Electric fields due to a point charge (Coulomb’s), a wire and a plane. Charge shells don’t act inside. In an insulator with uniformly distributed charge, only charge enclosed contributes to the field.
