Up to 40% of PhD students suffer or risk suffering mental illnesses. The hunger-games-like competition model of academia is an important reason for this. Being well informed before joining a group or lab for the PhD can make huge difference @LabVisor_site https://t.co/0mveqvqV98

The electric charge ๐‘’ and the weak-force coupling ๐‘”, are related to the W and Z boson masses in a rather beautiful way.

Today, we have a new, modern definition of the kilogram, and a few other spiffed up units to boot. But maintaining a system of units is an unending task: Soon we might need to redefine seconds. https://t.co/qMkggx7fB6

Recordad que esa gente que se puede permitir trabajar 12 horas al dรญa 6 o 7 dรญas a la semana (mayoritariamente hombres) es porque, o tienen una vida de mierda fuera del trabajo, o tienen una mujer o criades esclavizades haciendo todas las tareas de casa

Classical Limit of Quantum Mechanics ๐Ÿ‘€

๐Ÿ‘‰Place a particle in a box

๐Ÿ‘‰At low E (n=1), the particle acts "strange" (i.e. most likely to be found at the center)

๐Ÿ‘‰As E โ†—๏ธ (nโ†’โˆž), ฯˆ(x,t) oscillates faster and "peaks" grow closer

In Classical Mechanics, the state of the system is completely determined by its position and momentum (๐ฑ(๐‘ก),๐ฉ(t)).

๐Ÿ‘‰Phase space is the space of all (๐ฑ(๐‘ก),๐ฉ(t))

๐Ÿ‘‰An orbit in phase space corresponds to a system that returns to its initial conditions (e.g. oscillators) pic.twitter.com/GGNH9R1ISl

๐Ÿ‘‰In Quantum Mechanics, is not a "point particle" following some trajectory

๐Ÿ‘‰The free particle is actually a propagating "wave packet" that spreads out over time

๐Ÿ‘‰This spread corresponds to uncertainty in position
