Physics Haikus

Recently The Nucleus, a member of the ComPADRE network, sponsored a Physics Haiku contest. With a multitude of physics students submitting 117 haikus, some very entertaining and well-phrased poems emerged! After input and deliberation from admins, section advisors and other physics folk, winners have been selected in five categories:

  • Thought-Provoking
  • Concise Physics
  • Humorous
  • Historical
  • Honorable Mention

All winners received an Einstein cube, rainbow glasses and an uber-pen - these prizes are extremely snazzy and will inspire envy in all who behold them!

sure that makes a lot of sense
but how would it taste?

Boltzmann kills himself
Ehrenfest does the same thing
Stat mech is harmful

pricey physics text
cannot afford to buy it
too big to xerox
