Beginner Books is the Random House imprint for young children ages 3–9, co-founded by Phyllis Cerf with Ted Geisel, more often known as Dr. Seuss, and his wife Helen Palmer Geisel. Their first book was Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat (1957), whose title character appears in the brand's logo. Cerf compiled a list of 379 words as the basic vocabulary for young readers, along with another 20 slightly harder "emergency" words. No more than 200 words were taken from that list to write The Cat in the Hat. Subsequent books in the series were modeled on the same requirement.Beginner Books had only four titles in their catalog in 1958. Two years later, they were earning 1 million dollars a year. Random House acquired Beginner Books in 1960 and was the largest publisher of children's books in America.
I have calculated the height of the segment using the Pythagorean Theorem and that's currently where I am right now. I don't seem to find any equations that can help me. Though I might be not trying hard enough or using the wrong words because I'm not really fluent in mathematical terms as you...
Here is my solution. I used mathjax to type it up in Overleaf. I feel like it makes sense, but I also have a feeling I might have "jumped the gun" with my logic. If it is correct, I would appreciate feedback on how to improve it. Thanks!
Hey everyone!
This might be a bit of a dumb question, but I'm not familiar with much in the programming world. I know a few languages that I've learnt on my own (online) or through a course in school (MATLAB). When it comes down to coding outside of matlab or a website, I'm not sure where to...
Hi, I want to start learning physics as I have never studied it in my life but have now taken an interest towards it. I have quite literally zero knowledge on physics, so assume I haven’t taken middle school or high school courses on physics, as I haven’t. I’m 17 currently, but that shouldn’t...
Hi, I have decided I like to learn some physics as I know absolutely zero physics and also including chemistry or biology, and I’d like to learn a bit of all 3, to the high school level perhaps. It seems that from, what I’ve read if I want to learn chemistry, I’ll first have to know physics, and...
The first three equations i was given is as follows:
Vf = V0 + at
Vf^2 = V0^2 + (1/2)at^2
x = V0*t + (1/2)at^2 [why do they sometimes use y instead of x or V0,y?]
I don't understand in what situations i would use them in nor do i understand why you us V=gt or X=Vx*T. (i understand g can is...
Hey guys, I just bought the book Elementary Cryptanalysis: A Mathematical Approach by Abraham Sinkov, yet before I start it, I would like to know if there are any prerequisites I should know about as I am 16 and I still haven't even taken all of high school mathematics although I am self...

When studying equations, formulas, laws - am I supposed to understand each bit of information ?
For example, let's take Fick's law:
So I can memorize the law and I can tell with words what is "t", what is "x", what is "D", and so on, but I don't truly understand why is one divided with the...
Where does the Coefficient of Restitution equation come from, in terms of the Conservation of Energy?
The measure of efficiency is the velocity after the collision divided by the velocity before the collision, but how does it get to that point? I'm trying to view this focused on an object that...
When using the work-energy theorem (Wnet=ΔE), when do you take gravitational potential energy into account? Change in energy implies all types of energy involved, but in what cases would PEg be a part of it?
Homework Statement
A 95-kg mountain climber hikes up a mountain to an elevation of 5000 m. What is the change in the climber's potential energy?

I might be missing something but here's everything that might be relevant:
w=fx
p=w/t
p=f*v
KE=1/2mv^2
PEg=mgh

Wnet=E...
How should power be calculated in a situation where distance and time are both given, as well as mass. At first, I was thinking of just using W=Fx (force as mass x 9.8) to solve for work, and then I would take the solution for work and put it into P=wt.
Does this make sense? That's my best...
Hi, let me introduce myself. My name is Paolo i’m from Argentina and I have 26 years old. I study “skills in the direction of sales teams” and I’m the coordinator of a sale team. Since I was 15 I love all referd to physics and six years ago I start seeing videos of talks from many scientific...
I am trying to learn all about Quantum Physics on my own but I am struggling to find credible sources of information. As you are probably aware the internet is filled with misconceptions, crackpot science and weird stuff about spirituality (at least that's what I find when I try and research...
First of all, I'm new here, so hello everyone!
Apologies if this is posted in the wrong thread,
I recently started getting into high-ish physics in general, so I'm coming from a low-ish background in the way of math- a couple courses of calculus (single variable covering the basics of the...
I'm having a difficult time understanding why the internal resistance of the EMF source is disregarded in this problem.

You are asked to determine the resistance per meter of a long piece of wire. You have a battery, a voltmeter, and an ammeter. You put the leads from the...
Is it because it is more rigorous than books like Halliday and Resnick? Or maybe you need to digest those books as a prerequisite for the feynman lectures? Or maybe people don't believe a regular person could digest the feynman lectures as a introductory level physics book? If someone is a...
