    HI,
    I am currently at university for Mechanical Engineering and am here to offer my services. If you have any science or math related questions i would love to answer them to the best of my ability. Do not ask me test questions or for help with work if it would be illegal for you to receive outside assistance.

    As a mechanical engineering student, is it hard?

    I'd say it depends on how you think. If you are good at math and physics makes sense to you then it is definitely not easy, but you probably wont struggle if you work hard. If those things don't come easy to you, it is still doable, but you will need to work hard everyday and ask for help when you don't understand something. Professors want to help you because you passing gives them better job security and possibly promotions. That being said some of the hardest classes that some schools have are in the mechanical engineering degree (at least for bachelors of science). If physics and mechanical things are what you love then you can absolutely do it. If anyone ever tells you you're not smart enough, they are wrong. intelligence is just how easy it is to learn not your limit of learning. anyone can learn anything if they want to learn it.

    I have a question: The speed of light is constant no matter where your frame of reference is, right?  
    So if you travel at the speed of light, and look over to me, who is also travel at the speed of light, where am I to you? Waaaay ahead, side by side, or waaaaay behind you?

    I think you just opened a can of worm buddy.

    I will be honest. I don't know the answer to this. Theoretical physics is not my specialty.

    However, I think that if we were both going the speed of light then either neither of us would be able to observe the other because light couldn't travel between us, or you would appear stationary in the location I saw you in when I reached the speed of light (your velocity would appear to be 0 relative to a stationary reference point).

    Mechanical engineers tend to deal with things that have been proven and are tangible, so this is not something that is covered in any classes. This was touched on in my college level physics classes in high school, which is why I was even able to guess. If you have heard a different answer from an astrophysicist then I would love for you to share your source so I can learn.

    I actually recently, as a joke, described mechanical engineering to a friend as geometry 2. There is quite a bit of geometry, but it is usually not very difficult. There have been times however, when several of us would try to figure out what is happening in a diagram for over an hour. If you are interested in engineering I would say that if you don't understand geometry, you can always get better at it; and if you go into engineering you will get better at it. But if you hate geometry, then you might find engineering math not very fun. Not necessarily difficult, but not enjoyable. I'd say that at least 8 of the major classes that every mechanical engineering program will have requires geometry in almost every problem.

    How similar to Aerospace Engineering is MEchanical Engineering?
    Sorry for the delay. Aerospace is relatively intertwined with Mechanical engineering. Many ME course catalogs include optional Aerospace classes. ME is the most general engineering degree that touches on most topics and therefore allows you to go into quite a few fields with minimal additional education. Most people who are not sure they want to do AE but want to do something in engineering would get a bachelors in ME then get a masters in the thing they are most interested in. A lot of the course needed to even be able to start understanding aerospace are in mechanical engineering so I'd say ME is required for AE.

    Hope that helps,

    I don't remember how it works or even if it was ever taught to me. I looked it up and did not really recognize the process. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

    Go study the maths behind special relativity and not just the concepts as maths can answer this question better. Particularly look up Lorentz transformation

    Lets avoid questions involving going the speed of light, as there's too many problems with it. Instead lets say that Earth observes two rockets, A moving to the left at 0.9c, and B moving to the right at 0.9c. According to Galilean relativity, they're going at 1.8c relative to each other. What you need to do though is take into account the time dilation and length contraction when transforming between reference frames, i.e you need to use the Lorentz transformations. Taking this into account you get a new equation for adding the velocities called the Einstein velocity addition formula, which gives a result of 0.994c.

    HI,
    I am currently at university for Mechanical Engineering and am here to offer my services. If you have any science or math related questions i would love to answer them to the best of my ability. Do not ask me test questions or for help with work if it would be illegal for you to receive outside assistance.
    i have a project i would like to build at home
    this the inspiration for the project

    i have a no background to speak of so here is your chance to help.

    (simplest answer in layman terms please if possible)
    edit: materials would be aluminum sheeting like found at home depot

    1) how far "apart" do the tangs (blades) of the screw need to be for optimal flow if it was bi-sectional (transverse down the middle)?

    2) how much water pressure would be required in gallons per minute to achieve 10% output (if all circuitry and motor is perfect)

    3) what would be the speed of the screw at maximum?and at minimum?
