    Holy crap, they can't make the theory wrong because of 60 nanoseconds! Specially because Einstein is the most famous INTP representative.

    Another useful formula: f'(x)=y+dy=f(x+dx). Solve for dy/dx to find the derivative. Equally effective and much easier than limits.

    That's what math is about, and it often isn't taught that way.

    Other than that, I tend to like miscellaneous mathematical formulae I've derived.

    Also recently just learned about Lorentz Transformations (from Yale!):

    Really awesome. Relates how people view time, space, order of events, length of objects, etc. from relative velocity. Go Einstein!
    (These are the main equations of relativity which lead to the more famous E=mc^2)

    I forgot about this thread. My bad.

    That's OK .. Just rep me your all time favourite <Insert anything here>

    If I understood the Schrödinger equation I would probably like that one.

    WTF? People actually have favorite formulas? This is news to me.

    Ohm's Law
    For many conductors of electricity, the electric current which will flow through them is directly proportional to the voltage applied to them. When a microscopic view of Ohm's law is taken, it is found to depend upon the fact that the drift velocity of charges through the material is proportional to the electric field in the conductor. The ratio of voltage to current is called the resistance, and if the ratio is constant over a wide range of voltages, the material is said to be an "ohmic" material. If the material can be characterized by such a resistance, then the current can be predicted from the relationship:

    Ohm's Law - I=V/R or Electric Current = Voltage / Resistance
