03/13/2002 Archived Entry: "Use Your Hand to Figure Out Magnetic Forces!"

I had a Powerpoint presentation due in ICA today. I had to do a presentation on a career or school, so I did mine on graphic design. Why? I'm interested in it and besides, I used this opportunity to play around in Photoshop. Seventeen slides, each with a different background. ^_^ I didn't spend too much time on them, but they don't look half bad. I love the cloud render filter. ^_^

In physic today we learned how we can figure the direction a magnetic force using our right hands. The direction of the magnetic force on a moving charge is always perpendicular to both the magnetic field and the velocity of the charge. Thus, take your right hand and make an "L" kinda shape, i.e. four fingers facing one direction and try to make your thumb stick out perpendicular to those. From there, align your thumb to the velocity vector and your fingers to the magnetic field vector. There! Now the magnetic force should be shooting straight out of your palm. ^_^ It's an easy way to figure out where the magnetic force is. *This is for a positive particle. Remember to reverse the direction of the thumb for electrons*

Something I have to complain about is my physic lab group. Argh! They are the laziest lab group in the entire class. Whenever we do a lab I do most of the work, if not all of it. It's really, really annoying. I yell at them and all, but they still don't do anything. Today I just got pissed and really yelled at them. Smacked them a little too, although not especially hard, since I'm really not a violent person. If positive reinforcement won't work, I have to use some force. Geez...

I'm really anxious right now... I'm downloading Full Metal Panic 6 and Onegai Teacher 8 in Direct Connect right now... I want to watch them now!!! I'm impatient. I want to slack off some more. ^_^

Um... sure! I'm glad someone appreciates me and my layouts. ^_^ I'll be sure to add you to my links too.
