Physics Forum Posting Guidelines For Anyone Who Intend To Ask Physics Related Questions/Problems.


Before posting your questions/problems, beware of the following things.
TSR has set some Community Guidelines, so please go through them before posting in the Physics forum.
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/content.php?r=2707-community-guidelines

TSR Physics forum does not provide "do my homework" service, so there are some guidelines that we expect everyone who is posting questions/problems to follow.
Before posting or asking your problems or questions, please attempt them first as you are required to show your attempt.

Use the following template to post your questions/problems to seek help.
1) Full Question/Problem
2) Your Attempt
3) Discussion/Explanation of your issues/difficulties

----------------
1) Full Question/Problem
  • Post the whole question or a link to the whole question or an image of the question.

An example of posting the link to the question
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=6681788&p=90889484#post90889484

An example of writing the whole question (highly NOT recommended)
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=6545108

An example of using an external website to attach the image
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?p=91372084

  • If you intend to upload an image of the question, take care of the following points to enable the people who are sacrificing their own free time to help to read your posted questions easily.

Some examples of a poor-quality image

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=6467750

  • Restrict ONE question/problem per thread or at most 2 questions/problems.

An example of one MCQ in a thread

An example of having too many MCQs in a single thread
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=4064735


2) Your Attempt
  • You can demonstrate your attempt by discussing or explaining your issues/difficulties.
  • If you just post the question without showing any attempt you've made to answer it, you are likely to get the response "what have you tried?" or of something similar. People can only provide more useful and specific guide(s)/hint(s) based on your posted attempts


An example of showing an attempt of the problem

3) Discussion/Explanation of your issues/difficulties (This can be included in Your Attempt)
  • Specify what you have learnt pertaining to the related topics.
    • It can be formula, definitions, certain concepts, conservation laws or rules, etc.
  • Tell us your thinking or reasoning even though it may be wrong. It can be as follow
    • I think Newton’s Gravitational Law should be applied but I don’t know how to find the separation between the two masses.
  • Do not write the following
    • My notes have a lot of errors or of something with similar implications. (It is alright to write stuff that has errors).
    • I do not know what I have learnt. (If you write such this, do not be surprised that you would be given a bunch of reading materials or video links that may/would teach you the necessary concepts before receiving the necessary help.)



Do not expect immediate responses or bump your own thread less than a day or post the same question twice.

Note that the people that are helping or answering are actually sacrificing or giving up or using their free time to help you. Be grateful and respectful if there is/are response(s) to help you.

If you want an immediate response, it will be best that you hire a private tutor.

Do not expect full solutions.
TSR physics forum is NOT a place for you to get your homework done for you or cheat your online quizzes/exams.
If you just want to have full worked solution, it will be best that you hire a private tutor.
