I'm being told a piece of art I did wasn't sufficient for the purposes of the project. "How do you see yourself operating and contributing to the success of this job?"

All I did was sign my name on a white field and left the rest of the canvas blank. It's all representational of myself being at the center of an infinite potential of possibilities each day, for me to fill in. It's not that complicated, and it's not (too) pretentious. But I'm told they want pictures, not art.

I'm having a hard time remembering physics and chemistry and science... But I remember there's some sort of equation to determine the potential energy in an object (or electrical circuit?), and I suppose I can put that in the background, just to be a bit more literal about it.

What would a decent equation look like for infinite potential energy in an object? Anyone a real hardcore science nerd here?

∞ * (MC˛) = ∞ * E

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I have my physics reference table here with me and looking through it, I couldn't find a direct equation for Potential energy. However, here are the ones that had it in it, or something similar:

PEs=1/2kx^2 (PEs= potential energy stored in a spring, k=spring constant, x= change in spring length from the equilibrium position)

▲PE=mg▲h (▲=change, PE= Potential Energy, m=mass, g=acceleration due to gravity or gravitational field strength, h=height)

ET=PE+KE+Q (ET=Total Energy, PE=Potential Energy, KE=Kinetic Energy, Q=internal energy)

Hopefully this helps a little!
