I ask yesterday this Question and today it is marked as off-Topic. After that I read the help Center Guidelines, but I miss the point why my question is not in the scope.

I hope someone can explain it for me.

greetings Chris

    $\begingroup$ Probably some users felt the question would have been more appropriate on physics stack exchange instead of mathematics stack exchange. $\endgroup$ Sep 4, 2015 at 8:24

Note: The question has been reopened.

Since there are so many questions to this site, often people do not have a lot of time to decide if a question is good. Your question may have looked bad to many users at first glance. Here are three possible specific explanations:

  • They thought it was more fit for physicsSE.

  • Due to typos, a web url link to an image, and capitalization issues, your post appeared to be of poor quality.

  • The users thought your question was no more than a homework problem statement, without reading it through to carefully.

If this happens to you in the future, you can:

  • Post your question to a chat room at chatSE to get it reopened, if the users in the chat room agree.

  • Post your question to Requests for Reopen Votes here on meta.
