View Full Version : I didn't realize physics was on the exam

(Babbel & Fabozzi Chapter 26)
Random systems like the Brownian motion of gas molecules are unordered. Their behavior cannot be modeled and is inherently unpredictable.
Gee, I guess I wasted that semester of Statistical Physics I took. I should ask for my money back.
lol, i guess this is the only part where we need to relate to physics in this exam...
i guess the reason they mentioned this is because brownian motion was FIRST introduced in physics to explain "............" (something i'll never understand)
other than that, i dont think it's of any importance
btw, take a look at this java applet if you wanna see brownian motion from a physics perspecitve

Will, you must be the most attentive reader...I swear I'm reading different books when I see your posts! At this point I'm doing good if I can look at the title of the reading and tell you one or two things from the reading.

This is probably the worst reading in the entire syllabus. I have read the entire chapter and still have absolutely no idea what the point of any of it was.
