plow! blam!! Varp!!!! nert!!

^this is what i see when i look at shiz like this :-)

Do you even know how to differentiate? You should learn it in your first month in any engineering course..

what the internet really is: "the partial derivative is incorrect... i know because i work at Best Buy, part time."

source: moles and gas law, PV=nRT

The partial derivative taken in this equation is correct. Keep in mind that it`s a partial derivative just with respect to n1. When we apply a product derivative rule with the two polynomials (fg` + gf`), we see that the n1 term is only being multiplied by the "a" term. Thus, when we take the partial derivative for n1 for the f` portion of the product law, we only get a1 for f`, this is multiplied with g to get the a1(n1+n2)^1/2 term.

Therefore, the equation as shown is correct.

I totally know I`m giving a troll ammo, and I apologize, but we engineers are a finicky lot.

I concur with expectations vs reality. :P thought you do EVENTUALLY get to make cool things, the part you end up looking at 90% of the time is the code, not the robot or program you made.

I haven`t had enough free time to do anything remotely interesting besides eat, sleep, and schoolwork. The math is suffocating, the professors don`t speak much english, and the women...

well, there are no women in engineering.

Basically, if I don`t get a job with this degree, I`m going to build a giant robot and take over the world with it. Who wants in?

My father has his bach from Georgia Tech and I can tell you, yes during school it IS like that.

In the real world it`s:

COMPUTER and CALCULATOR that have pre-programmed equations.

Easy peasy.

I used to be able to do this, but after the final, it all started slipping away...

What I expected:

Playing videogames

Actuality:

This poo.

[else (let ([pivot (car ls)])

(let ([sublist (divide (lambda (x) (rel? x pivot))

(cdr ls))])

etc.etc.

Are you ChemE?

Soooo true.

On the brighter side most of the equations are actually algebraic. You don`t have to deal with the calculus to get them.

MEDIC!!!!

well fugacity to you too buddy!

NEED A DISPENSER HEEEEEEEERE!!!

NEED A DISPENSER HEEEEEEEERE!!!

Its fugacity dude.

No, the answer is 42. Always.

Hell, you don`t need more than high school Algebra 2 to design drating miniguns, just the right license and extended background check, with preferably a contract.
