It was just a theory, so he didn't actually find out.
Interesting, you'll hear from me when I get the formulae.

I estimate it to be b*0.5m (m). b is the good looking factor, where 1 is perfection and >1 not so good (10 would be not bad (especially from a physicists point of view), 100 would be pretty ugly and 1000 would be puke in your breakfast). Note that b >= 1, and does not have units. Also note that 0.5m varys per person, this assumes good eyesight.

You got to include variables such as the luminosity of the light, the air conditions, maybe even the eye's dioptre. Now that would be the formulae.

And how many units of alcohol you intake, would impair the rating scale you used. eg an exponential increase with rating on the y axis, and amount of alcohol intake on the x axis, for a woman with a stable rating of 5 say.

Yeah, maybe that was a bit on the simple side! I expect by delegating tasks to various people we could get a great formula! Only altering one variable at a time and all that.

Um, yeah, or not!

4Ed, you say you want to become a member? Are you planning to take Physics at Univerisity?! If not then I don't think you can be a full member. I suppose it depends on what everyone else thinks???So I put it to the members!

Should UKL Physics society be open to anyone with a passion for Physics or only those who are planning to take it onto a higher level?

Re: "Hawking" I thought that it was very interesting, especially seing how other people dealt with his disability (I thought people would ignore him/disregard more). Personally I would love to have seen some more "real" physics and seen him working through the mathematics and explanations, but then the general public would have got totally last and not bothered watching it. I read a review on it before it was broadcast and apparntely when the initial idea was put forward to Hawking he was like "but aren't you going to cover my work on black holes as that's the really interesting stuff?" and the BBC told him that they thought people would be more interested with how he dealt with his illness". lol, I suppose we have to remember its a DRAMA not a DOCUMENTRY! grrrrrr.

I, like almost everyone on here it seems, am interested in theoretical physics (string theory!!!) and relativity/quantum mechanics as well as particle physics. I am not a huge fan of electricity, but I don't think it's as boring as some people think! My weakest area is magnetic fields and the one topic I couldn't stand at AS was Medical Physics! But then I hate biology, so I felt a bit biased! lol

people who are interested should have some sort of "honorary" rank/status in the society. The more people the better in the society however there should be some distingusting.
I totally agree with you about how ppl dealt with his disablity as well tho

That's what I was thinking. So 4Ed if you are not going to be studying Physics at Uni then you become a Honorary member and use the following signature:

UKL Physics Society Member (Honorary)

The same applies to anyone else who has a strong interest in Physics.

my course title is Maths with Mathematical Physics. Does that count as physics?

You are welcome to become an Honorary member for the services you have offered the subjects, but not a full member (reserved for people going to be doing Physics @ Uni). So you may include the following in your signature:

UKL Physics Society Member (Honorary)

Welcome!

Here's a difficult one.... I started doing Physics at uni then decided it wasn't applied enough for me and changed to Earth Sciences, specialising in Geophysics. I'm now a seismologist..... Is that Physicsy enough or not?????

It's still a branch of Physics, and you did straight physics beforehand anyway. So yes.
