Feynman Lectures 1

  • He’s honest about intentions (this book is for aspiring physicists)
    • Sucks if that’s not you I guess
  • I feel sorry for the students who took it for a grade
  • It blows my mind just how well certain things are known (like the fact that the angle between hydrogen atoms in water is 105 degrees and 3 minutes)

His analogies are as good as the stories say. Evaporation makes a lot more sense now. Do all large-ish materials radiate particles from their surface? I can imagine something like a graphene tube not letting off any atoms.

Are there formal definitions of solid vs. liquid vs. gas?
