This question already has an answer here:

Let's say I've been working in a calculation which is reasonable simple but I didn't found it done anywhere else. Can I post is in physics.SE and ask what the community think about it?

I know in other SE communities that would not be allowed but in physics that might be, because checking whether the reasoning behind a calculation is correct is the core of the physicist work.

  • $\begingroup$ @JohnRennie I actually checked for this question but I guess I wasn't using the right words, sorry about that. It's certainly a duplicate. $\endgroup$ – myradio Jun 18 '18 at 11:49
  • $\begingroup$ I think John was talking about asking someone to check your work. That would be on topic in the chat room but generally not on the main site. (Chat has fairly loose standards about what is considered on topic there, unlike the main site.) $\endgroup$ – David Z Jun 18 '18 at 16:09
