Physics and Astronomy Weekly (PAW)

Professors Tugdual LeBohec and Eugene Mishchenko have initiated a friendly problem solving competition, Physics and Astronomy Weekly (PAW).

Every week, the first participant to submit a correct solution for the week’s problem will be awarded a $75 prize. If you wish to participate, send an email to with PAW followed by your UID in the subject line. You will then be invited to join the Canvas page through which the contest will be administered. This semester’s first problem is scheduled to become available this Friday at 6:00PM.

The goal is for everyone to have fun solving physics and astronomy problems.

If it is not fun, it’s not physics.
