My several hours of major improvements to thermal resistance page just undone. Do I have support in undoing the undo?[edit]

Capillary length and Jurin's law[edit]

I could use some help here: Talk:Capillary length#Editions. I'm about to WP:3RR. Maybe somebody with more diplomatic experience could help us solve this out. --MaoGo (talk) 10:09, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

The differences are not big but the user wants his version to prevail [1].--MaoGo (talk) 13:01, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

User just doesn't want to follow guidelines of style. [2] --MaoGo (talk) 12:38, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

insource:/physics\.gen-ph/ [edit]

Since particularly loopy stuff often gets reclassified to physics.gen-ph on the arxiv, every now and then, it's good to have a look at what cites that sub-repository. This can be done search for insource:/physics\.gen-ph/. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 09:18, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

WP 1.0 Bot Beta[edit]

Hello! Your WikiProject has been selected to participate in the WP 1.0 Bot rewrite beta. This means that, starting in the next few days or weeks, your assessment tables will be updated using code in the new bot, codenamed Lucky. You can read more about this change on the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial team page. Thanks! audiodude (talk) 06:47, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

"Collaborating institutions" in particle physics[edit]

We have various articles about international collaborations that list all the institutes where someone did something for the project at some point in the past. For stubs these lists can be much longer than the article, e.g. for COMET. Does that really help anyone? I don't see any value from these lists. --mfb (talk) 04:18, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

I am in favor of taking that section out. --MaoGo (talk) 07:17, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Rotational Diffusion[edit]

While reading the current version of Rotational diffusion, I was really surprised, that there should be five rotational time constants. In my view, there should only be three. I tried to verify the five rotational time constants in the linked papers, and regardless they were written in french, I never found anything about five rotational time constants.

I have looked into older versions of the article, its seems like the paragraph was changed to its current version ten years ago (Link to a 2009 version of the Rotational diffusion). My linked version is the last version before someone added the five time constants.

I would really appreciate, if someone is able to explain why there should be five time constants and to give me a source that I can verify that (for me) unituitive information. --Andilope (talk) 10:05, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Definitely three, one for each of the three position axes. --MaoGo (talk) 20:58, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
That was my thought as well. I wonder why it was wrong for 10 years. Thanks for fixing it!--Andilope (talk) 07:57, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Inconsistency at Talk:Planck's_law#Einstein_coefficients[edit]

People with an eye for thermal/spectroscopy can take a look at that. I'd do it tonight, but it's late and my thinking hat is off at the moment. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 07:47, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Templates for tables of physical constants nominated for deletion[edit]

If interested, please opine at WP:Templates_for_discussion#March_9, subsection Tables of physical constants. —Quondum 02:37, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Wigner's friend[edit]

I have serious objections to material that has been repeatedly added to the article Wigner's friend. XOR'easter (talk) 20:34, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Category:Phases of matter has been nominated for discussion[edit]

Category:Phases of matter, which is within the scope of this WikiProject, has been nominated for renaming to Category:State of matter. A discussion is taking place to decide whether this proposal complies with the categorization guidelines. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the categories for discussion page.
