My strategy is to take notes, then I explain what I learned out loud. A few days later, without looking at my notes, again I explain the concepts to myself without refering to my notes, and if I find myself unable to explain something, then I look back at my notes. Do this at regular intervals and it will stick.

Imagine you have an infinite sheet of neutral charge in the (x,y) plane, spanning all of (x,y).
Place a positive charge at the position z = a.
This positive charge induces a negative charge on the sheet, everywhere in the (x,y) plane.
This gives rise to two scenarios, neither of which makes sense.
>1. The sheet originally had an equal amount of positive and negative charges, hence being neutral
If the sheet is now negatively charged everywhere, where the fuck did the positive charges go?
>2. The sheet was originally neutral because it had no positive or negative charges anywhere
So where the fuck did the negative charges come from?

>> No.12793421
Quoted By: >>12793438

This is a classic problem and there is a crucial detail that needs to be specified. Is the plate grounded? If yes, then the charge gets dissipated. If not, then you will have some characteristic radius where the surface charge density is zero, and it's positive inside and negative outside.

>> No.12793431

Yeah I get what you're saying. It's interesting as a 'frictionless' physics problem. Totally analogous to introducing a grain of sand to an (x,y) plane of particles that are not experiencing any gravitation force. When the massive test point appears, a force vector appears on every point in the plane.

But inducing an electric field on the plane doesn't change the net charge of the plane, so the positive charges must go somewhere (there are at distance = infinite from the origin?) Maybe I'm making an error by thinking of this plane of being bounded though ....

Run it by me again with the gravity analogy. It's the same. Just a vector field.

>> No.12793438
Quoted By: >>12793448 >>12793474

I am a little confused by this. When you build up a charge on a sheet I thought it would build up the opposing charge on the other side of the sheet. Are there actually charge gradients? That doesn't make sense to me, but thermal gradients don't either.

>> No.12793448


>> No.12793474

>Are there actually charge gradients?
Yes, charge density is assumed to be continuous. This is a fine assumption on macroscales. You can see (volume) charge density in Maxwell's equations as rho for instance, and there is an analogous quantity for currents. The math is actually much neater with these than with discrete charges.

>TOKYO - Japanese supercomputer simulations showed that wearing two masks gave limited benefit in blocking viral spread compared with one properly fitted mask.

The findings in part contradict recent recommendations from the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that two masks were better than one at reducing a person’s exposure to the coronavirus.

Researchers used the Fugaku supercomputer to model the flow of virus particles from people wearing different types and combinations of masks, according to a study released on Thursday by research giant Riken and Kobe University.

Using a single surgical-type mask, made of non-woven material, had 85% effectiveness in blocking particles when worn tightly around the nose and face. Adding a polyurethane mask on top boosted the effectiveness to just 89%.

Wearing two non-woven masks isn’t useful because air resistance builds up and causes leakage around the edges.

>“The performance of double masking simply does not add up,” wrote the researchers, led by Makoto Tsubokura.

In general, professional grade N95 masks were the best in protecting against infection, followed by non-woven masks, cloth masks, and finally polyurethane types, the study showed.

>It's about making the money to continue to flow. Consider the mask manufactures, and covid barrier manufactures that wouldn't be making the money if we went back to normal lives.

Another Japanese company showed me a simulation where masks helped prevent the spread of covid. I don't know who to believe anymore.
