Let ε < 0.


Planck’s constant

Filed under: Puns, Science humor, Upper-division jokes — Travis @

During a physics lecture, the professor wrote the equation E = h v on the board. He then asked “What is v?”

“Planck’s constant.”

“Good. And what is h?”

“The length of the plank.”

Adapted from Physicists continue to laugh, MIR Publishing, Moscow 1968. Astonishingly, this is translated directly from the Russian version of the joke.
