Ever wondered what the rate of gummi bear combustion needed to power a lawn mower is?
How fast do you need to throw a burrito to make it spontaneously ignite?
A subreddit dedicated to one of the most useful skills in life. Estimation.
The aim of /r/Physics is to build a subreddit frequented by physicists, scientists, and those with a passion for physics. Papers from physics journals (free or otherwise) are encouraged. Posts should be pertinent, meme-free, and generate a discussion about physics. Please report trolls and intentionally misleading comments.
Engineers apply the knowledge of science and math to build maintainable systems and devices to solve problems. AskEngineers is a forum for questions about the processes and standards used to build them, as well as for questions about the engineering profession and its many disciplines.
A subreddit to draw simple physics questions away from /r/physics. No real rules; ask away.
If your basic physics question isn't answered in a day, you can post it to /r/physics if you mention that you didn't get an answer on /r/AskPhysics (unless it's a homework-related physics question).
If you are anything BUT 5 years old, and you're confused by something, this is the place for you.
Now that /r/eli5 clarified that they want simple explanations, (fake) 5 YEAR OLDS ARE NOW WELCOME TO THE SUBREDDIT. But not in a creepy way.
Please read the reddiquette and the sidebar before you join. This subreddit is moderated by its members. Your actions will have an impact. (E.g. don't downvote just because you disagree.)
