    In exactly the same way that the circuit “knew” to make the current 10 amps with the original 2 ohm resistor.

    You have to recognize that these are steady-state values. The current does not jump up...

    So you added gamma after your initial post, but you didn't consider what that means. As Janus pointed out, when you actually use gamma, you are led to the mathematical absurdity I hinted at in my...

    Hint:

    What is the correct expression for energy? Your original equation was not relativistically correct (I see you have edited it without comment; that is not good). Why not? What is this...

    Hint: Is there a relationship between band structure and effective mass? If so, how might you use it?

    You wouldn't expect to learn calculus in a forum post, right? Well, you shouldn't expect to master GR that way, either.

    Get a copy of Misner, Thorne and Wheeler. It's over a thousand pages long....

    The only cure for such ignorance is education. Unfortunately, the first step is to acknowledge that one's knowledge is deficient. You are confident in a way that is unjustified, and so it is doubtful...

    A lot of non-scientists have this odd notion that audacity is missing. But if you attend any conferences, you'll see no end of far-out ideas. The thing is, the lay press generally don't attend these...

    Perhaps it's because you have mistaken the first law for the second.

    Of course no energy is "lost" -- that's what the first law says, and that's all you argue above.

    The second law says...

    Oh good. You can google after all. But you still failed the test: Helium doesn't yield protons when ionised!

    But since you can google there's no need for my further tutoring of you. As they say in...

    Sorry I don't offer free tutoring to lazy cranks. Google for proton beam and heliarc welding.

    Don't be ridiculous. A magnetic field accelerates any charged particle in motion.
