I feel like I want to go into either Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or Biochemical Engineering - is there anyone here that could give me more information about them, because I can't figure out which one is more suited to me, or can anyone give me some websites that might make it more clear?
User avatar #944 to #930 - djequalizee (03/05/2014) [-]
If i had to recommend one of those i'd tell you to do Biochemical. Biochemical Engineering is kind of on the rise with medicinal advancements and stuff.
User avatar #948 to #944 - moolfle (03/05/2014) [-]
That's what I want to do in the future, medical advancements and stuff I just wasn't sure which would be best for it as I couldn't find anywhere that told me it, thanks
User avatar #933 to #930 - xsnowshark (03/05/2014) [-]
Aerospace major here. I know a few people in BME and ChemE and can tell you that you better like math and physics, like a lot, haha.

Depending on what school you go too, they will make you take intro courses that should cover your interests and you will be able to make a good decision then.
User avatar #940 to #933 - moolfle (03/05/2014) [-]
Yeah I really like physics and maths, but I am a lot better at Chemistry. My college (UK) doesn't do any intro things, you have to apply to ones around the country and hope you get in which I didn't, unfortunately
User avatar #932 to #930 - subtard (03/05/2014) [-]
I was a chemistry major my freshman year, switched into chemical engineer for sophomore year. I thought chemical engineering would be chemistry + math. But it really doesn't include a lot of chem. It's a lot of flow analysis. Like heat diffusion or fluid flow calculations through pipes. And it all includes varying amounts of calculus.
User avatar #941 to #932 - moolfle (03/05/2014) [-]
So your saying chemical engineering is less chemistry and more analysing the reactions and what not, but using maths to do it?
User avatar #974 to #941 - subtard (03/05/2014) [-]
It's not usually analyzing chemical reactions. More just physical properties. Like rate of heat exchange or fluid flow.
The only thing chemistry based was you needed to remember how to calculate the product and reactant concentrations in an equilibrium given a reaction constant.
User avatar #977 to #974 - moolfle (03/05/2014) [-]
Okay I think I understand what you mean but judging from what others have said I think biochemistry is more suited for me. Thanks though
User avatar #931 to #930 - rplix (03/04/2014) [-]
Chemical and Biochemical Engineering is pretty much the same thing, just Biochemical has more of an emphasis on biology and organics.

My brother studied Biochemistry in college and now works for a pharmaceutical company.
User avatar #942 to #931 - moolfle (03/05/2014) [-]
Yeah I figured it'd be something like that, I want to go into research and making medicines and what not but I don't know what would be best for going into that
User avatar #946 to #942 - rplix (03/05/2014) [-]
Biochemical then.

I am starting a Bioengineering degree later this year. Does anyone have any advice?
User avatar #923 to #915 - goobyman (03/04/2014) [-]
i am not a bioengineer but i would like to help. what do you need help with?
User avatar #926 to #923 - shaddz (03/04/2014) [-]
its an extremely physics, maths and biology heavy degree with tissue engineering for decellularized body parts, I know they are currently studying nerve cells so it will be that, stem cell research as well as building artificial limbs and designing hospital equipment. it is more asking for advice from someone who has gone through a heavy degree on how to handle it all
User avatar #927 to #926 - goobyman (03/04/2014) [-]
i'm kinda interested in stem cell research. let me know if you find anything.
User avatar #928 to #927 - shaddz (03/04/2014) [-]
well stem cells are a much larger area than you would expect. theres growing organs and tissues as you can imagine but there are uses for immune systems and pretty much anything your body can do, you should check out "ghost organs" or decellularized tissue as an example (same concept different scales)

Just sharing my theory here. Due to relativity, nothing will ever match or go beyond the speed og light (c) right? Well if you are on a train or whatever, that slowly goes toward the speed of light. Eisteins theory suggests that the close you get, the slower time it self gets. So if you shoot a gun on this train it's time will slow down and match your moving hand. But as you all know we have some form of heat in our bodies allways. So if the molecules in our bodies is moving. Would not closing in on c cause us to freeze due to less molecular vibration?
User avatar #945 to #912 - djequalizee (03/05/2014) [-]
That's not really exactly how relativity works. But no, i don't think it would. Silentwarrior explained it well, but if you're asking if the molecules in your body would have to freeze so they wouldn't exceed the speed of light, that wouldn't happen. They would actually dissipate, because the atoms themselves cannot exceed the speed of light. So you'd kind of fall apart.
User avatar #935 to #912 - xsnowshark (03/05/2014) [-]
It all depends on your inertial frame of reference.

You are sitting in a car and you drop a ball. From your inertial reference point, the ball went straight down, but for someone outside the car, the ball will take a diagonal path downward.

So if you were on a spaceship going .99(c) and you shot a laser, what would happen? By using something call the Lorentz Transform, you would be able to compensate for the differing frames of reference and show that it does not actually break the theoretical speed limit of (c).

TL;DR Nothing can break (c) and if you were traveling close to it and shot a gun, the bullet won't slow to a stop, its velocity will be transformed.

Does this answer your question?
User avatar #936 to #935 - xsnowshark (03/05/2014) [-]
Link to Lorentz transforms: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorentz_transformation

Special relativity is honestly some of the trippiest stuff that physics has to offer outside of quantum physics.

dude, i'm dead, just leave me
#916 to #912 - silentwarrior (03/04/2014) [-]
Thats not how the theory of relativity works. If you take the train example again. Time will appear slower and slower the faster you go, but only the time outside of the train. Inside the train, everything will apper normal, no time stopping. When you finally reach the speed of light, time will appear "frozen" when you look outside, but it will be "normal" time inside.

Hmmm, the only thing wrong I can see about this theory, which could in fact be me being stupid, is that if this is true then light would be something like .0 to the power of a huge number kelvin. Now as we know light is just a wave length of particles, I'm more than sure about that but could still be wrong, wouldn't that mean that it would be even colder than liquid nitrogen and freeze shit instantaneously? Also we are still not sure if time is even a real thing, right now I don't think there is a way we can test your theory for now.

What colour are mirrors?
#917 to #902 - 4chan refugee (03/04/2014) [-]
They are green, Vsauce has a grat video on youtube about this, if you hold two mirrors against each other you can see the green kind of tint.

green, a very light green
#979 to #906 - nailclippers (03/06/2014) [-]
not very light green, rather an emerald green with a minimum opacity. if you reflect mirrors on mirrors the color becomes more dark and emerald green.
User avatar #908 to #906 - situmus (03/04/2014) [-]
There it is.

The wavelength of the photons bouncing off of it.
User avatar #904 to #903 - situmus (03/04/2014) [-]
True, I guess, but mirrors do actually have their own colour.
User avatar #937 to #904 - mechaemperor (03/05/2014) [-]
If they have reflective metal under the glass, it would be the color of such.

how do i get gun powder to make squibs?
#900 to #899 - allinallout **User deleted account** (03/04/2014) [-]
gun powder is a composition of potassium nitrate, charcoal, and sulfur.
#909 to #900 - baitdoesnttalkback (03/04/2014) [-]
somehow i feel if i bought those i would end up on a watchlist. i dont even know where to get sulfur and potassium nitrate from
#913 to #909 - allinallout **User deleted account** (03/04/2014) [-]
google skylighter. all of these thigns are completely legal to buy. I've bought 5 lbs of potassium nitrate no problem. but like 40 lbs? that might be a little sketchy

we've got some nacl and hcl. we just need to do researchy. something that isn't just a lab experiment
User avatar #837 to #832 - goobyman (03/03/2014) [-]
well just try out random shit. if you're doing a research topic, propose a theory on how to make some random as fuck compound, look it up if it already exists, if it does chose something else. then try a method. try it out. if it works, write your conclusion. if it doesn't, explain why it didn't and then conclude.

Computer Science is not a real science.

User avatar #938 to #828 - magnuskasparov (03/05/2014) [-]
computer science is the study of what can be computed

it's mostly math than anything else, but it is science because most things done with computer science are related with the physical world such as weather prediction and population decline prediction

it is a very large field and i think that some things in the field shouldn't be considered computer science, but it's better if things fit in fewer categories

#901 to #828 - allinallout **User deleted account** (03/04/2014) [-]
it's always seemed more mathy than sciency
User avatar #834 to #828 - kanadetenshi ONLINE (03/03/2014) [-]
It's math since it's based on computation which is basically a method of calculation.
User avatar #829 to #828 - doctorhue (03/03/2014) [-]
