Closed as per community consensus as the post is not graduate-level. Might be appropriate on PhysicsForums.com if improved.

Hi Devin,

this question is not graduate-level and therefore off-topic for PhysicsOverflow, voting to close.

You might try to ask it in the appropriate subsection of PhysicsForums, but even there it is probably needed that you submit your own thoughts about the problem together with the question.
