Q: Tension in a string for different acceleration in each end

Anvil RownokSay a regular string, with mass, is held by two persons in each end and they are in running in different acceleration in the same direction. Will there be any tension as different ends have different acceleration? Or not as they running in the same direction? If it does then how do you calculate ...

Q: Proof of internal resistance acting like it does

AndyI believe Ohm's law via the drude model (about average collisions time). Right after, I read about internal resistance of a battery, and they used Ohm's law as a justification. That doesn't make sense though; in a battery the current flows (in the battery) from MINUS to PLUS, which means Ohm's la...

Q: Is space a property of something that moves and does it move with it?

Kári GunnarssonWhile reading Sheng Liu (2015) A new approach to the correction of Galilean transformation IN Physics Essays 28(2) I started thinking that space itself moves with objects that have mass. So anything that is moving within that space frame of reference is moved without having a speed within that s...

Q: Covariant derivative of the spin connection

user44690I wish to compute $$[\nabla_{\mu}, \nabla_{\nu}]e^{\lambda}_{~~a}. $$ To do so, I make use of $\nabla_{\nu}e^{\lambda}_{~~a} = \omega_{a~~~\nu}^{~~b}e^{\lambda}_{~~b}$, so that I may write $$\nabla_{\mu}\nabla_{\nu}e^{\lambda}_{~~~a} = \nabla_{\mu}(\omega_{a~~~\nu}^{~~~b})e^{\lambda}_{~~b}+\omega...

Q: Why mass limits acceleration?

Samyak MaratheIf a force of 10N is applied to different objects of different mass in empty space, in the absence of gravity, why lighter objects accelerate faster than heavier objects, why mass causes inertia.

Q: Is speed of light a ratio or a universal constant

Marios MourelatosWe use the speed of light to define the length of the meter, but we also use the speed of light to count the number of clicks on our clocks (because all the electromagnetic events on the smallest subatomic level known interfere with the speed of light). So we have space = $f(c)$ and time = $g(c)$...

Q: Peskin-Schroeder time derivative of canonical momentum in Klein-Gordon theory

FlumpoIn section 2.4 of the book, it seems that the commutation relation $[\pi(x,t),\phi(x',t)\nabla^2\phi(x',t)] = 2[\pi(x,t),\phi(x',t)]\nabla^2\phi$ is used to verify that $i\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\pi(x,t)=-i(-\nabla^2+m^2)\phi(x,t)$ and show that the Klein-Gordon equation holds in the Heisenber...

Q: What exactly is Landau Damping?

JokerpI would like to understand what exactly happens when Landau damping takes place. I have seen the mathematics of it. But I am not sure If I truly understand what happens when we are talking about Landau damping.
