2013 Porter Prize Problem Worth Cash

The 2013 Porter Prize Problem is out! The Porter Prize is funded by Carroll Porter, ’32, and is awarded annually for the best solution to a complex physical problem. This year’s excruciating physics problem models molecular rotations in an ideal gas. Check out a detailed statement of the problem, posted around SMC or available at http://course.knox.edu/physics130. Any Knox student may submit a solution. Turn in your solution to Prof. Tom Moses, D110 SMC, by 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 8 and win a place in Knox history (and a cash prize).
