WelcomeEdit

Hi, welcome to Physics: Problems and Solutions! Thanks for your edit to the Wave period page. If you need help, read through our help pages or contact a local admin. If there are no active admins here, stop by Community Central and check out our forums.

Looking for live help? Then join us for an upcoming webinar to chat with staff and other Wikia editors. You can also check our Staff blog to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events around Wikia. Lastly, check out the Wikia Video Library, where you can find premium licensed videos to add to the wiki.

All of these links are a great way to start exploring Wikia.

Happy editing, Sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 01:50, August 14, 2014 (UTC)

I want to be of help Edit

Okay, so first of all what's this wiki about. I mean can we post some problem solving techniques and tips. I have loads of questions that are simple and also tough ones. Drakenkaul 07:25, November 30, 2014 (UTC)

I believe the original purpose of this wiki was to provide sample problems and solutions, so problem solving techniques and tips would be fine. Go right ahead! --Dinoenthusiastguy (talk) 21:21, November 30, 2014 (UTC)

I am sorry Edit

I know I haven't kept my promise. I am sorry. I just saw your adoption request. But I am ready to provide questions with solutions for the wiki now. Now that I am not much busy anymore. Just going to attend college next month. (Btw I am applying for Engineering). Before I do I wanted to discuss with you the formatting and basics of the wiki. So that in future we don't have any trouble. Waiting for your reply. :)

Don't worry about it! You aren't obligated to edit any wiki. Yeah, that sounds great! As far as formatting, I'd say it should be pretty similar to Math Wiki. Right now, I think the main thing we need to focus on is attracting new editors - we can't build this wiki ourselves. --Dinoenthusiastguy (talk) 17:41, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

Adoption Edit

Hi. I’ve given you admin and bureaucrat rights on this community as you requested. You now have the tools you need to clean up, customize and maintain the wiki.

Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can by found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar -- it has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your new (old) wiki! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 05:06, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

Templates Edit

Hey Tim, I will help you maintain the templates on this wiki.

Ambox CSS Important Edit

Hi Tim, I wanted you to add this CSS code to the CSS input page. Please I would be glad. This will help the Ambox Template to work properly.

Done! Also we need a logo, any ideas? --Dinoenthusiastguy (talk) 02:16, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
I will design one and show it to u in no time. Just need some time.

Edit

PHYSICSLOGO
Hey Timmy, how does this logo seem? If you don't think this is good enough or well representing our wiki. Give me some ideas on the visuals and I can give more time! Let's not rush the logo! The problem is I can't make the background and all the white stuff transparent somehow.

Sorry to bother you Edit

Hey Dino, can you please add the following code to the CSS section. It will help with a module also an icons template. Thanks.

#icons {
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    top: -35px;
    float: right;
}

#icons a img {
    -moz-transform: rotate(0deg) scale(1) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
    -moz-transition: All 0.6863s ease;
    -o-transform: rotate(0deg) scale(1) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
    -o-transition: All 0.6863s ease;
    -webkit-transform: rotate(0deg) scale(1) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
    -webkit-transition: All 0.6863s ease;
    margin-bottom: 10px;
    width: 20px;
    word-wrap: break-word;
}

#icons a img:hover {
    -webkit-transform: rotate(1deg) scale(1.09) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
    -moz-transform: rotate(1deg) scale(1.09) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
    -ms-transform: rotate(1deg) scale(1.09) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
    -o-transform: rotate(1deg) scale(1.09) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
    transform: rotate(1deg) scale(1.09) skew(180deg) translate(0px);
}

/*Slider Template Code Necessary */
.img-slider img { padding: 4px; margin: 8px; border: 1px solid gray; border-radius: 0.5em; }

/*This Code is for all the modules under the class helpmodule */
.helpmodule img {

I would be grateful. :) I hope I am not bothering you.

Done! I really like the logo. As for the featured article template, I like the idea but I'm not sure we have manpower or enough articles at this point to keep it regularly updated. --Dinoenthusiastguy (talk) 02:28, June 25, 2016 (UTC)

Confused Edit

I am a bit confused about where to commit myself. I happen to be an admin on Open Science Wiki. Would you like to be a part of it? The problem is that Open Science Wiki also has physics articles. The confusing thing is that whatever I write here originally should I use that on that wiki. >.< Anyways, please do join that wiki.

Also Dino, I added two problems on kinematics from Irodov book. How do you find the idea?

I appreciate the invite, but I think for now I need to keep my focus on just the math and physics wikis. Just edit here as much as you want, it's your time after all! If you want to focus on Open Science Wiki that's totally fine. What do you mean by find the idea? Do you mean find new problems? --Dinoenthusiastguy (talk) 15:21, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

Merge Edit

Why not merge this wiki with open science wiki? Granpa (talk) 22:22, August 14, 2017 (UTC)

I think physics is a large enough field to warrant its own wiki! --Dinoenthusiastguy (talk) 13:04, August 15, 2017 (UTC)
Yes but is it a big enough Wiki? Granpa (talk) 14:20, August 15, 2017 (UTC)
Not yet, but we're getting there :) --Dinoenthusiastguy (talk) 14:25, August 15, 2017 (UTC)

sailboat and propellerEdit

I was wondering, do you think if there was a propeller that was reversed so that it blew a breeze, attached to a back of a boat, aimed at the sails, could blow the boat forward?

I saw that in a cartoon but something feels very off about that...

Like if a fan/propeller is pushing air forward, there is probably a backward force created...

With a standing fan, the friction created with the surface by the weight of the fan pushing down should prevent backward movement, but if it was a fan attached to a low friction surface, like perhaps ice or a boat on water, then I'm wondering if perhaps that blowing air forward would push the boat backward, counteracting the forward propulsion created by the sails catching that air flow.

Clip is here if you're interested in what I mean. talk2ty 20:30, November 6, 2019 (UTC)

During 19 days I posted that, others have directed me to this Mythbusters where they claim to get forward movement. Do you think that is legit? The theory guy mentions at end implies that air bounces off the sale and blows backward somehow. Is that a thing? talk2ty 20:37, November 25, 2019 (UTC)
