Think like a Physicist?
Physicists have their own culture, and part of that culture is a kind of collective, self reflection. One of the most common targets? Creative problem solving.
If you want to see a physicist student panic, as them to model the electron configuration of a benzene ring. As undergraduates spend weeks studying the electron configuration of the hydrogen atom in a quantum mechanics course. Weeks. And that’s just ONE atom. How are you going to model an entire, super complicated organic chemical like Bezene?!
Why. With Symmetry, of course.
