Hello Everyone! I am (half) a physicist. 大家好,我是(半個)物理人steemCreated with Sketch.

in #introducemyself6 years ago (edited)

Hello everybody on Steemit! I am John from Hong Kong. I did Physics and Mathematics at University and have recently graduated. That's one of the two reasons I said I am only half a physicist. The other reason was because I know far too little about Physics to call myself a physicist: Physics is a very deep and broad subject that asks the most profound questions about our Universe. Nowadays, physicists have to spend years just to be good at a very narrow topic. I am certainly not as professional as them! But I do have a geniune passion to learn about our beautiful Universe.


According to the arXiv, apparently these are the topics there are in Physics:

Let me tell you why I joined the Steemit community. First of all, I really enjoyed reading some of the articles on Steemit when I was introduced to it by a good friend. It seems everyone is very friendly here as well! The vast number of articles on Steemit covered many topics, but as half a physicist I immediately noticed one thing: where are the posts related to Physics? That was what motivated me to create an account: I want to try to bring this interesting subject to more interested people!


What kind of Physics will I be talking about then? Perhaps you can give me some ideas! (Then I will try my best...) Actually what comes to your mind when you think of Physics?


Newton hit by a falling apple?


(from John the Math Guy at http://johnthemathguy.blogspot.hk/2012/10/the-apple-doesnt-fall-far-from-newton.html)

Einstein's ridiculous hair?

Some science on a blackboard?


(from https://www.timeshighereducation.com/student/subjects/what-can-you-do-physics-degree but by the way, half of what's on that blackboard is not Physics. 不過其實這塊黑板上有一半不是物理。。。)

I am sure many of you thought of this!


(from pexel, or Einstein himself!)

We are getting close to the kind of Physics that I did at uni. What I did was actually more like

(from http://einstein-schrodinger.com/Standard_Model.pdf)

Please don't be scared! As Einstein said (or is credited for saying):

"If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself."

I am not Einstein (He's my favourite physicist, by the way), but I am guessing you aren't six years old either :) Maybe it will work out. Who knows. Maybe next time!



我不是愛因斯坦(他是我偶像!),但幸好你也不止六歲 :) 或許能行? 或者下次吧!

If you have read all the way down to here, thank you very much! I look forward to hearing from you all. Nice to meet you again everybody!




Thanks htliao my friend :)

呼叫 @coinbitgold 你們的新人到了.... :)


@nationalpark 能去他的故居太棒了!我將來也一定要去一趟 :) 其實很多問題愛因斯坦也搞不清。。他是一個很有自己的想法的物理學家。


@ygern 多謝!如果你對什麼特別有興趣的,歡迎提出,大家可以討論一下 :)

Hello and welcome fellow physicist.

Hello, add oil with your science post, i have created a tag for #cn-science and cn-stem in the past, but apparently got removed.

Love to see more science post here!!
Upvoted and followed

@carobetc Thanks for the encouragement! I will try to write in both languages but that has proved to take quite a bit of time haha. I will see how it goes. Thanks for upvoting and following, if there are particular areas of physics you find interesting feel free to bring it up! I might be able to write something about it :)

Hello and welcome to steemit Mr. Physicist. I wish you lots and lots of success on this amazing platform :)

nice post! I recently made a post to get people to like maths again, it looks like you are the ideal person to start getting people working on their math abillities 😄

Thanks @oudekaas! Indeed if one wishes to understand the physics properly then the maths is essential!


@sylvia1997 哈哈,講物理學家的故事也不錯啊!至少他不是在講自己的故事 :P

对的,他讲得非常有趣! 讲麦克斯韦,还讲尼采。那些物理定理我不一定都记得,故事还在我脑海里

@sylvia1997 一直覺得物理學家的故事比課本有趣多了哈哈。可能有空我也可以寫一下一些物理學家的故事 :)


Welcome to Steemit Mr. Physicist :D Looking forward to some great posts from you!

@firepower Thank you! I hope you will enjoy them too!

Hii john nice to read about you.i am surendra from india,am also a new on steemit and welcome you to steemit.i have followed you.so, can you also follow me.Best of luck.

Welcome! I really like what you do!

Hey...your profile pic is my background picture :-)
You're definitely my kind of people! I hope to engage in some intriguing conversations.

What a coincidence! Nice to meet you g0nr0gue.
