Physics 596 Dr. Herbst SICK SENTENCES 1. Who is we? We the people of planet earth. 2. The Fourier Series - the infinite sum of sine and cosine functions that can represent any periodic function. 3. In fact, I was always under the assumption that the Fourier Series was some sort of mathematical trick. In particular, that the series is a mathematical approximation and not a physical fact. 4. A related problem, is the idea that if their were an absolute frame of rest, then the ship whose velocity after the first acceleration was in the frame of rest, would show a greater lapse of time when it returned. This would not be the case. 5. But, when it reversed it’s velocity to go back to the station, relative to the absolute rest frame, it would be moving even faster than the space station. 6. Superconducting materials are of interest in many areas today, among which are transportation, such as high speed trains and in low temperature physics. With the applications of these materials growing rapidly a basic understanding of them is becoming a must for physics students. 7. Below the critical temperature the thermal vibrations are essentially non existent and therefore no resistance. 8. Typically G is high order and non-linear, but can often be modeled adequately with low order
