Psst, Professor...

A location, specifically an address, would help. Wink Is it at 3101 S Dearborn?

AndyMan and I would go, but we have to be at work. Unsure

Is this going to be the chapter entitled "Differences in riding around inside the plane vs attached to the outside" ? Angelic

Will it include the physics of beer drinking? Beer!

Falling off the floater bar will NOT be covered.

That's another class. The physics of bubble formation in beer is really quite interesting. Have you noticed some (like Guinness) have little gizmos in the bottles to promote proper bubble formation?

This could be interesting.....

To bad I'm in sunny FL.

Next trip down maybe we can get the "bar" version?

I wish I was in the area to attend.

Questions:
1) What's "IIT"?
2) What the heck is a "colloquium"?
3) And most importantly, what kind of refreshments? <grin>

Sounds interesting. I would love to come but the damn banks won't increase my overdraft and my credit card companies won't do give me a reasonable limit either. So being a poor student with no money to fly over to the US, would you be able to record(audio or video) the lecture and stick it on a website for me to download?

1) Illinois Institute of Technology
2) Dictionaries are great resources Tongue
3) Hmm, I'm wondering this, too...

You can also use the example of the bubbles to discuss velocity saturation of carriers in semiconductors.

Beer I can relate to skydiving. Semiconductor physics is a bit of a stretch.Unimpressed

Most beer contains only dissolved carbon dioxide. Guinness adds nitrogen as well.

That's because it needs to stay gaseous to assist in bubble nucleation. If they added CO2 in their gizmo, it would dissolve. N2 is (effectively) insoluble.

Grrr...I thought I was going to be able to make it, but I have some work to do. Frown I'd have to leave here by 2:30, and I just don't see that happening. Booo! It sounds interesting!

So since farts are mostly nitrogen - should we conclude that Guiness makes us fart?

I think you need a biologist rather than a physicist...

Stop breathing for a couple of hours and see if it cures the farting.

Well, I got an invite to repeat the talk at a local high school "Year of Physics" event so I suppose it went OK.

I'll prolly post the Powerpoint on my web site over the weekend in case anyone wants to use it.

Ahhh, so it's nothing more than just a presentation, but "colloquium" sounds so much more important!

Well, it is more important, by virtue of the fact that the attendees know what it means.
