Exams, Over, Thank God.

Actually the exams ended last Friday, but I spent the weekend burying myself under my thick ivory covers. I did great on Calculus, but not so well on Physics. I guess I overthought too much.

A question from our recent Physics test I mistakenly solved was about finding the ratio between two specific heat with given applied heat, temperature change, and mass of both substances.

The specific heat capacity of a substance or simply specific heat (c), is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of the substance by one degree (ºC). It can be easily calculated using the Heat Formula q = mcΔT, where q is the heat energy gained or lost by a substance, m is mass (in grams), and ΔT is the change in temperature.

I wasn’t focused enough – I solved it as if the two substances were applied with different heat and therefore came out with an answer of 3:8, whereas the correct response was 1:2. I should update this post when I get my complete results and feedback.

I couldn’t stop smiling as I went through my Calculus test sheets – I could see through the tricks laid out, and I still had 30 minutes left to go over the whole test about three more times.

Having a hard time focusing. Final Exams are in two weeks.

We’ve just finished our last three periods of Microprocessor. Just last week we moved on to external interrupts, and I had a hard time getting myself on track. I got a lucky grade of a 100 on today’s evaluation, but I’d really have to spend some more time practicing.

Physics II is such a captivating subject I dearly adore. It’s very attractive – enchanting, almost, all the theories and the beauty of the finest equations.

Acing Calculus. Grueling, but I guess it’s rewarding enough.

Feeling so blue and gray and pale and dark. Definitely the exams are stressing me out. There should be a word to coin this tiresome distress. Something like examinautiousness could work. Sounds disgusting enough.
