In the FAQ it is said that "do my homework" questions are not welcome on physics.stackexchange. So far I was sure that I know what are that questions:
- Formulation of some non-conceptual problem: "given A, find B"
- No attempts to solve the problem or understand the conditions are shown in the post.
- The question is "what is B?"
I have flagged 4 questions using these criteria. The flags for two questions have been declined. These questions got some up-votes and answers:
- What would be pressure of 1 kg of photon gas at room temperature put in a volume of 1 liter? - looks like it was just copied from some textbook without any editions. Criteria: 1, 2 and 3.
- Rolling resistance and static friction - some useless "I'm confused" introduction and an exercise from another textbook. Criteria: 1 and 3 for sure. An attempt to avoid criterion 2 (IMHO, not successful).
In my opinion these questions are not worth neither the up-votes nor the good answers they got.
Something is wrong for sure in my criteria since those questions are neither edited nor closed.
What is wrong? What are the correct criteria?
