    In the discussion of mathematics, it seems grammar has completely gone out the window.

    Write an equation for the number of times "your" has been used wrongly.

    Ok so p=mv, but photons don't have mass, but they do have energy. So we can use einsteins E=mc^2. Solve for mass: m=E/c^2. Substitute that into p=mv: p=(E/c^2)v. But the velocity of a photon is always c, so that cancels with 1 of the c's on the bottom creating : p=E/c. And, as i stated in the wrong place in an above post, E=hf. Substitute in for E: P=hf/c. And because v=(lambda)f and v=c then p=hf/(lambda)f. the f's cancel and you get p=h/(lambda)


    according to physics 30 of course =). they could easily have lied about that haha.


    That was me.

    My mistake, I completely forgot about p=h/(lambda). It's the de Broglie equation, something I should have remembered.
    It's like all the more complicated physics and maths I've learned in the past two or three years is pushing the easier stuff out of my head.



    I never add friend codes.

    Haha, ya not the most advanced stuff ever. pretty much as advanced as i've been in physics tho.
    Anyways, back on topic, i think the universe is really really big....... haha
