# v for frequency?

• posted

Since when did we start using v for frequency? v is velocity, f is frequency, lambda is wavelength. Using v for frequency is pure insanity.

Un bel giorno Commander Kinsey digitò:

It is not a v, it's the greek letter 'nu':

As in the Planck formula, E = n nu.

h nu. Can't type this AM.

It's only insane for those ignorant of the fact in this case v is the Greek letter nu and has no relation ship to your v for velocity. The capital is N.

Sheesh anyone with an IQ over 90 would know that.

ν is the Greek letter not found in a limited character set or font type so it translates and gets shown as v

What else is new?

$E = \mathrm{h} \mu$

<html> E = h&#957; </html>

Or cut and paste from some table someplace.

Well, if you put me there too, you'll be just that much safer. Can't be too careful.

Killfiles get confusing when you see followups to posts that you can't see. It's easier to just ignore the known jerks.

I use Thunderbird filters, set to 'mark post as read" or "ignore subthread", depending on the case.

So far you haven't displayed the emotional pot stirring, bigotry and the total lack of intelligence of the denizens of my kill file.

No can do. 70% of uk.d-i-y is total drivel from about 6 usual suspects. I dont want to waste what is left of my life reading it

I'll obviously have to up my game. ;)

Excellent, then that means you don't see the numerous corrections I make to your posts.

• posted

One of which is you.

When you stop spouting lies on on uk.d-i-y I'll stop telling the truth you prefer not to hear, for which you have no response.

They had to name it after somebody, rather than using something actually meaningful.
