A Page of My Notes
« on: September 24, 2011, 06:25:35 pm »
Okay, so this might be a thread where people can post "a page of [their] notes." Pretty much, just something interesting that you jotted down-- something crazy and impossible even. I think it is neat to hear the ideas of others simply as a mind exercise. I like seeing how much I can warp my thought process to follow that of somebody else.

So I will go first and this isn't entirely outlandish. This is actually from a notebook from when I was in seventh grade (2005), so there are likely errors and whatnot, but it is still a cool idea :) At the end of this excerpt, I will expand on the idea :) Feel free to comment!

6/30/05 Thurs. Why Superconductors Act the Way They Do
A few Nobel Prize winners (for the discovery of superconductors), said that super conductors work because two electrons come together to form a bond, yet that normally would not happen. I think they said they don't know why. Here is what I think: 2 likes repel (positive and positive push away and negative and negative push away ). Well, think about it. Superconductors survive at very low temperatures and A:) at low temperatures, electrons are forced together because the atom is extremely "cold" and like most things, it "bunches up." And B) the magnetic fields that would normally destroy the bond isn't there because of the temperature

----

So anyway, a lot of that looks a little vommity, but here is what I would add and revise:

As temperature decreases, electrical fields are diminished. This would be attributed to the fact that to cool down, energy must be removed, blah blah. This would make the repelling forces of two electrons significantly weaker, allowing them to bond together.

In an electrical transfer of energy, electrons are kind of pushed along. Normally, some energy is lost this way, but with the idea of the two bonded electrons, they don't have energy to lose! So by the time they reach the end of the superconductive environment, they gain back their energy and there repelling forces and no energy is lost once they have split back up!

Anywho, I really have never studied this kind of thing properly, so I am sure there are some key ideas missing and incorrect, but it is still neat to think about, right?

I wish I kept those notes from AP U.S. History... I had a habit of condensing my text in my notes until there was zero whitespace at all on any page, not even in the margins. It was insane, but it turned out to be a pretty great compression method -- I managed to fit four whole chapters on one side of one sheet of classic 8x10.5 notebook paper, saving however much of a tree would have been cut down for all that extra paper ;D

About your notes on superconductivity, I'm actually doing research on room temperature superconductors right now.  Personally, I believe that the key to room temperature superconductivity lies within phonons. (that's all I'm going to give away)

Oh, and btw, researchers have know confirmed that the transition into superconducting phase and the Meisner Effect happen at different temperatures.

Awww D:
:D As a note, I have almost no scientific background, so I rarely know what I am talking about XD

I don't either.  Whenever I get interested in a topic, I will go weeks without sleep researching it.
ex. last summer I became obsessed with Star Wars, and I read just about every page on Wookiepedia (Star Wars wiki)

If I knew wherw I could find it I'd post my noyes on relativity in relation to newtons laws.

[Offtopic]
mushmoom I've read and own >100 star wars books.  I really liked the Legacy of the Force series. I don't sspend too much time on wookiepedia but from what I have spent i couldn't imagine spending days and days reading it. Most of it is so much more boring then the books. I might have to start a topic later for star wars discussion as I spent way too much time on the off topic of this post relative to the ontopic.

Is it something fun, neat, and/or interesting? If so, then do it! If it is impossible, did you have any ideas on what might happen if it were possible?

To be honest, I never have to take notes.  I can remember most of what the teacher says, and we almost never learn anything new.

lol me neither, one time the teacher made us take notes for credit and so I turned to my friend and asked him how to take notes and he just laughed.
I failed that assignment :P

My secret to taking notes(when I have to): Scribble random stuff and say you wrote in cursive.
