The sound of Maxwell's hammer playing, brought up this parody song, that all who had to deal with Maxwells equations in Physics classes, so long ago. It still give me a PTSD reaction!
Maxwell's Equations (of which there are four) deal with the behavior of electric and magnetic fields. If you study certain college curricula, you might have to learn them. Tesla is a unit of magnetic field strength (if I remember correctly) named after the scientist Nicola Tesla, not to be confused with the band of that name.
I was quizzical, studied quantum physical Science at my school Late nights all alone with my physics boo-oo-oo-ook As I study here, to become an engineer Friends call on the phone Want me to come out, but I tell them no-oh-oh-oh And as I say goodbye to my friends I know what I must do
Bang, bang, Maxwell's four equations I shove into my head Bang, bang, Maxwell's four equations My social life is dead
Back in class again hoping just to pass again We all take our seats Listening to what the professor say-eh-eh-ehs Look it says right here "stick a Tesla in your ear" Writing on the desk Time to take a test to see what I know-oh-oh-oh And as I sit here ready to start I hope I've learned enough
Bang, bang, Maxwell's four equations I pull out of my head Bang, bang, Maxwell's four equations I'm hanging by a thread
B-field density magnetic propensity Maxwell stands with Gauss Faraday the law of induction, oh-oh-oh-oh Then there's Ampere's law, now my nerves are getting raw All these I must learn (These things you must learn) A good grade I must earn for my mind to grow-oh-oh-oh And if I ever figure them out It will not be too soon
Bang, bang, Maxwell's four equations I know inside my head Bang, bang, Maxwell's four equations I'll keep them 'til I'm dead (repeat)
The line about "stick a Tesla in your ear" is literally true. It was graphiti written on a desk in the room where I took a college physics course.
There's nothing wrong with thinking Except that it's lonesome work sevil regit
