When reading a physics problem, identify the pieces of information that you are given, then determine what you are trying to solve for. This article was co-authored by Meredith Juncker, PhD. Meredith Juncker is a PhD candidate in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. Her studies are focused on proteins and neurodegenerative diseases. Start with simple problems and do as many as it takes until you truly understand that concept. Move your way up to more complicated problems as you master each topic. Many times, the problem doesn’t directly ask a question, but you have to figure out what the problem is asking given the information provided.

It is an equation that describes how the quantum state of a physical system changes in time. It is as central to quantum mechanics as Newton’s laws are to classical mechanics.


Most relevant to this latest study is Ristroph’s 2020 paper on so-called “stone forests” common in certain regions of China and Madagascar , like the famed Stone Forest in China’s Yunnan Province. They conducted simulations and experiments to explore the interesting shapes that evolve in landscapes due to a number of “shaping” processes, most notably erosion and dissolving. We thank all members of the Ultracold Atoms and Quantum Gases group in Innsbruck for many collaborations and inspirations. We particularly acknowledge the invaluable contributions of C. Chin, H.-C. Nägerl, S. Knoop, M. Mark, M. Berninger, A. Zenesini, and J. We acknowledge support by the Austrian Science Fund within SFB 15. Was supported within the Lise Meitner program of the FWF.

Separating Science From Pseudoscience

On our current understanding of the Universe, we could potentially travel into the future, but travelling into the past may well be a total no-no. For one thing, our observations of non-locality have all involved tiny numbers of particles. Scaling up to a human, or even something smaller like a piece of paper, would be an enormous challenge.

You have a chance to make progress on answers to all of these interesting questions that don’t quite fit in the rest of the house. And making progress on these questions requires making connections between different disciplines and topics. If you’re interested in doing that sort of thing, then philosophy is the place for you. My reinterpretation of Newton’s law impacts all real-world objects. One example—and this is Newton’s own example from his book “Principia”—is the spinning top.
