Where are all the physicists?

Oh, yeah. On the CFA thread grin

Pencils posed a hazard to the electronics,there cld be a fire as the wood flakes cld easily ignite and Ball-point pens don't in zero gravity. Some1 had to pay for d research,it's more like a legend.

Hello its so great meeting people with great mind here, i also studied physics and I'm so glad i was trained to do everything. I'm a solution to every problem in my company and that what physics is all about. All the created problems we were meant to solve while is school is now more than useful. I'm presently with SIEMENS and I'm trusting God to go higher. but wherever you find yourself working make sure you ass value to yourself get more certifications in line with your profession.

Go and teach.
One area my high school suffered from in the 80s was a lack of physics teachers. We mostly had youth corpers, engineering grads, teaching physics. There was only one permanent physics teacher in the whole school.

Great Physicist! Is it possible for a Bsc physics degree holder to go for masters in Elect/Elect without PGD? I have great interest in the I.T industry and i'm currently doing MCITP programme. Also, can anyone suggest any good options in masters degree that relates with I.T? Thanks

Na somebody teach you oo shocked

Meanwhile, physicists, I have a physics quiz for you.
When is the best time of day to buy petrol, and why? Justify your answer with physics. No long story pls.

d best time to buy fuel is in d evenin when d sun has come down,if you buy it any other time,u'll b cheated cos d density will b low n d rate of evaporation will be high.do i make sense?

To Reply to Taiw (m) Inquiry

Every professional is trained for a purpose and will always find that answer within himself.
Employment is not the preserve of some professionals, we all have to make ourselves competitive.

I know of a friend who works in a telecom company and he read zoology. what happened? He empowered
himself. Someone said he's doing a certification course, very good strategy. Employers are looking for ready-made
employees, the better you are closed to a finished product, the more you can get that job from them.

So the question is what do you do?

upgrade your value.

Find ways to add to your Physics degree - you need to be multi-tasking in this age and time.
It's sad that our leaders are not looking at the development of this country, where people like you
would be key players, but life must go on - find areas you would like to get a job in and get the necessary
value that will be needed there.

Not just you, many courses are facing job extinction in this country.

No need to bemoan any course.
There are companies looking for people like you everyday.
You need to find them.

Goodluck.

Nice thread!

Two cars, a Porsche Panamera Turbo S and a BMW M5, were raced on a 1 km track. Here are the results:

Porsche - 239.43 km/h @ 21,65s
BMW - 243.8 km/h @ 22,15s

1. How far behind was the BMW when the Porsche reached the finish line?
2. If the race started at 50 km/h, who would reach the 1 km end line first?

Don't just be happy. Tackle the question bros. Are you a physicist, or a waka-thru? tongue

Hello guys,
I am a physicist but I currently work in a bank. I am at a cross road on how to advance myself. Due to my job schedule, going for a masters degree is really out of the picture now and I dont really feel like doing any finance related certification exams because I dont feel banking is really for me. I would like to have some advice on what I can do right now. I know this is an open ended question but I would like to hear what people in my shoes are doing right now. thanks

Im sorry but if an object was dropped into a two way tunnel right through the earth, it would never make it through the otherside, impossible. It would spin on its axis in the centre of the earth. BUT, if the object was not free falling and was thus propelled along via rocket engine for example, the object emerge from the otherside!

Re: Physics Graduates: Lets Meet Here by Nobody: 3:52pm On May 11, 2012
Nice thread.
Buy your fuel in the morning o! the lowest temperature is always around six, seven in the morning(I did my final year project along that line, so I know), that would ensure highest fuel density and low ambient temperature resulting in low fuel evaporation rate.
Why are most Physics graduate runing away from teaching? I have always wanted to teach since my days in the University, though I opted for core Physics rather than Physics education, because I beleive Phy Edu, will be too simple! After my service I started teaching in a private school in the north and was earning 11000naira as a salary. In the school I was teaching mathematics, futher mathematics, besides physics, invariably I used to teach Int science and Intro Tech!
Apart from my salary work, I used to have a lot of private teachings around town.
Since the town I was residing then is a University town, I simply enrolled for my master in physics after finishing my MSc, I got an appointment in a state government tertiary institution in another state. Presently Im in the tertiary institution and my salary is now well above 100,000naira a month and I have also enrolled for my PhD in physics again with the hope of getting appointment in a University!

I saw one general vacancy advert by UNILORIN, in the DailyTrust of 7th of April 2012. Its like their Physics dpt. is looking for Grad Assit, Assoc. Prof, and Profs.
Physics Education seems to be looking for staff too!

Hello evry1. I studied Physics & jst finishd my service ds yr. I've bn invited for an aptitude test at shell and its comg up nxt tuesday. Can any1 help me out with any material i can lay my hands on or have an idea of wot the test usually luk lyk. Pls inbox 'azeezgboladele@yahoo.com'. Thanks
Re: Physics Graduates: Lets Meet Here by Nobody: 10:09am On May 17, 2012
Sorry I dont have help for you! But I can only encourage you to brace up for the challenge. Whatever they are going to ask there will not be more than what you know, seek for for the materials you need in other section of the nairaland and the web in general, relax your mind and you definitly will succeed!
Goodluck.
