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).
