Ask questions

Readers!  Do you have any questions that you'd like me to blog about?  It can be a personal question, an opinion question, or a knowledge question.  It can even be on a topic that I don't normally blog about.

I can't guarantee that I will actually answer every question.

I'm doing this because I'm still somewhat busy even after my blogging break, and my working hypothesis is that this will require somewhat less time investment on my part.  Let's test that hypothesis.

I'd like to know more about the nitty gritty of thermodynamics.

That's it, just one question? And it's not the kind of question I could answer quickly either. But yeah, I'll write about thermodynamics.

Groovy, thanks. :)

One question is: if temperature and pressure are both the kinetic energy of the molecules, how are they different? (In other words: what mistake am I making here conceptualizing temperature and pressure?)

Why only few people know the 'sausage catastrophe'?
see http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theorie_der_endlichen_Kugelpackungen#Die_Wurstkatastrophe

Not being among those few people, I'm not sure that I can say much about it.

I like how the Wikipedia article makes it out as if "sausage" were Laszlo Fejes Toth's nickname. Maybe that was just a poor translation.
