How convection ovens cook food faster than radiant heat ovens

I’m not sure how convection ovens are able to cook food faster than radiant heat ovens. Convection oven guides claim that they cook food 25-30% faster than radiant heat ovens, however they don’t explain how it works. Let’s imagine we have a large turkey on our hands.

Where does all the energy in black holes go?

Because the temperature within a black hole is nearly absolute zero, particles inside it move very slowly. So where does all the energy it carries go if they don’t emit any heat or light? Inside black holes, energy does not “go” anywhere. (E=mc2) Energy and mass are the same thing. Black holes can be completely […]

How to contact someone asking them to be a co-supervisor

It would be a mistake to do this without your “current” supervisor’s consent. If you haven’t already, you should talk to them about it. And having the supervisor contact the other individual is the greatest approach to include them in the process. They can figure out what they need to know about your past together. […]

How to write Master’s thesis summary for PhD application

Your essay will be read by other mathematicians, although the majority of them will not be in your field.

The goal of conferences and speeches is to spread information and ideas. In some ways, you’d be happy to learn about it if you’d published on the subject and someone else took your thoughts and applied them to something else.

Is it OK to write Wikipedia articles about your thesis?

“Notability” is an important concept at Wikipedia (and also one of the most contentious).

Is it okay to ask to see a letter of recommendation if the recommender is dead?

Before she died, my former PI (and role model and one of the most incredible persons I know) sent me a scholarship letter of recommendation. I know her secretary submitted the letter (and thus probably still has it), so I’m wondering if it’s okay for me to ask to see it. I agree that asking […]

How to deal with sensitive students when they’re wrong

Rephrase the question You can avoid this by rephrasing the questions, but there’s another factor to consider. It’s difficult to create an environment where individuals aren’t frightened to speak up even if they’re wrong. It’s humiliating enough to make a mistake in front of a few dozen of your students and friends, but if your […]

Why would vampires sire vampires of lesser blood than they have to?

Question Is there any reason why a vampire clan wouldn’t try to recruit the best vampires they can? Answer 1 ‘Humans raise their successors, vampires raise their competition,’ as Sir Terry Pratchett put it. Raising a large number of high-ranking vampires enhances the likelihood that they will be able to overthrow you. They didn’t ask […]
