I saw a great sci-fi movie called “Interstellar.” I love time travel but I don’t understand what happened in the movie.

Can someone explain to me the resolution? Did the Earth die? How was Cooper going to get to Brand? What happened to Brand? Will she be alone permanently? Could someone summarize what happened?

I’m not good at physics and I don’t understand Einstein’s theory of relativity. It may be over my head, definitely above my pay grade.

I wouldn't trust any of the physics you hear about in a movie. I did hear somewhere that for that movie the producers went to NASA with their high end graphics processors to get an 'accurate simulation' of what a black hole looks like..

How do I apply math to electronics?

How could they leave Brand stranded all alone on that planet, by herself? That’s just cruel. They need to rescue her. You just can’t throw people away like that!

First, spend a few years improving your knowledge of mathematics and physics.

"Is electronics just Ohm's Law: V = I * R?"

No, and electronics is not a branch of mathematics anyway. Think of it as a specialized branch of physics.

"How do I apply math to electronics?"

You use equations, such as Ohm's Law. You don't need to be a mathematical genius, but it's desirable to be competent at elementary algebra and able to cope with some simple trigonometry, use of complex numbers and calculus.
am afraid skip jack is right. ohms law is not just about mathematics. it all a topic derive from physics. and if mathematics will actually lay is hand on that fact i will be relating that option to Algebra like Variations v varies directly at I and indirectly at R V= KXIR

People used to say (eg. Gary Kasparov):

“Computers are by nature stupid. They can only do what you tell them.”

Is this still the case? You don’t really hear people say, “Computers are stupid,” like they used to.

Are computers still stupid?

Will training to be an electrician make me better at electrical engineering? Are they related?

How do you get along with people at work and in life who don’t like you, or even hate and despise you?

Is this a normal situation? Can it be avoided?

I’d like to be top dog. It’s just I do not think rank matters. Whenever I help or train someone who does not like me, they slap me in the face, figuratively, afterwards.

How do you train and work with someone who hates you.
