I'm very curious and like to understand physical concepts. So I search the internet and ask questions on the site.
But there is a problem: my understanding isn't complete about the subject sometimes I don't even know what concepts I need to look up. The internet is running low on easy to understand texts and figures when I'm trying to understand something in the more advanced fields like the general relativity and quantum field theory.
Sometimes when I ask a question, and I get a highly technical answer that uses lots of advanced mathematical concepts I don't understand yet.
I have no doubt that it's a correct answer, because it receives upvotes. But the answer doesn't give me that "Aha!" moment, and makes me feel dumb. Probably I'd need to spend weeks or months to look up all the concepts to fully understand the response I got.
- What should I do when face a response like this?
- How should I ask my question that invites an easy to understand answer?
