I actually asked a question with the tag. Then, I was searching some question with the tag. I had visited 50 pages. Most of the questions don't have answers. And, most of the questions have a low number of views. But, why don't people come to answer those questions when they see the tag?

There are a lot of physicists either. But, no one comes to answer those questions. What's the reason of it?


There are many instances of homework questions getting answers before they are closed. But in those cases where they do not get answers...

Many posts that fall under the "homework-and-exercise" tag do not follow the site policy on homework-like questions. Instead of asking about physics concepts in the context of an exercise problem, they are just looking for a solution, how to obtain the result of a specific calculation, etc. Therefore, they get closed, or at the very least users know not to answer questions that should be closed.

  • $\begingroup$ I want to know why this question was closed. I had solved the problem later.. And, I showed some work what I tried. My solution in that post was completely closed to the accurate answer. Although why it was closed? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Istiak A question asking “What am I missing?” is not a conceptual question; it is an off-topic check-my-work question. Furthermore, that question doesn’t make sense because what you state is the correct answer doesn’t even have the right dimensions to be a frequency. Are you stating just the correct numerical prefactor in front of the square root? If so, you need to say so. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @G.Smith So, how the question should be? I was doing wrong with equation. I misunderstood. I was directly doing addition rather than vector addition. While both of them were vector. I had to do vector addition. But, I didn't know that(Literally you can say I forgot). Where can I read about on-topic of homework-and-exercise's question? $\endgroup$
