    How Physicians and Engineers Differ

    Physicians must complete a more extensive education than engineers. Entry-level doctors must earn a bachelor’s degree and then a medical degree, and it can take as long as eight years to earn both. They must then complete a residency, which can last from three to eight years. Thus, doctors spend at least 11 years obtaining the education they need to enter the occupation. By contrast, a bachelor’s degree is normally sufficient for an engineering career.

    Salaries reflect the greater difficulty in becoming a doctor. Physicians in 2016 averaged $205,560 annually, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Certain specialists averaged even higher incomes. For example, surgeons averaged $252,910 a year, while obstetricians and gynecologists averaged $234,310. Salaries for engineers depended largely on the type of engineering specialty. Sample average salaries for 2016 were $112,010 for aerospace engineers, $89,970 for biomedical engineers and $105,420 for chemical engineers.
    How Physicians and Engineers are Similar

    Both physicians and engineers can choose specialties. Physicians typically receive their specialty training during residencies. However, engineers normally decide before their third year of college, as they must take the appropriate engineering courses for their desired specialty. All physicians and many engineers must become licensed in the state in which they practice. Both engineers and physicians provide important services.

    Education has been a problem in our country and lack of it has been blamed for all sorts of evil for hundreds of years. Even Rabindranath Tagore wrote lengthy articles about how Indian education system needs to change.  Funny thing is that from the colonial times, few things have changed. We have established IITs, IIMs, law schools and other institutions of excellence; students now routinely score 90% marks so that even students with 90+ percentage find it difficult to get into the colleges of their choice; but we do more of the same old stuff.

    Rote learning still plagues our system, students study only to score marks in exams, and sometimes to crack exams like IIT JEE, AIIMS or CLAT. The colonial masters introduced education systems in India to create clerks and civil servants, and we have not deviated much from that pattern till today. If once the youngsters prepared en masse for civil services and bank officers exams, they now prepare to become engineers. If there are a few centres of educational excellence, for each of those there are thousands of mediocre and terrible schools, colleges and now even universities that do not meet even minimum standards. If things have changed a little bit somewhere, elsewhere things have sunk into further inertia, corruption and lack of ambition.

    Creating a few more schools or allowing hundreds of colleges and private universities to mushroom is not going to solve the crisis of education in India. And a crisis it is – we are in a country where people are spending their parent’s life savings and borrowed money on education – and even then not getting standard education, and struggling to find employment of their choice. In this country, millions of students are victim of an unrealistic, pointless, mindless rat race. The mind numbing competition and rote learning do not only crush the creativity and originality of millions of Indian students every year, it also drives brilliant students to commit suicide.

     We also live in a country where the people see education as the means of climbing the social and economic ladder. If the education system is failing – then it is certainly not due to lack of demand for good education, or because a market for education does not exist.

    Education system in India is failing because of more intrinsic reasons. There are systemic faults that do not let our demand for good education translate into a great marketplace with excellent education services. I discussed the reasons previously in this article: Will Education make a comeback in India?

    Fat mass does not take up water. It brings with it less water percentage than lean mass and so a person with more fat mass will have relatively less % body water. Additional mass as fat contributed relatively less water than additional mass as lean tissue.

    Consider a 50 kg individual who is extremely lean. From your numbers, if this individual is 75% water (will will assume lean tissue is 75% water) that is 50 * .75 = 37.5kg water and 12.5kg nonwater body mass.

    Now this 50 kg individual puts on 50 kg of fat. The fat is 10% water (from your numbers) so an additional 10 kg of water. This individual its now 47.5kg water and 52.5 nonwater; since this obese person weighs 100 kg now she has 47.5% water, similar to your example.

    Suppose instead your 50kg person grew up into a 100 kg performance athlete. Still no fat. She is still 75% water because the lean tissue has 75% water.

    It has to do with the % water each type of body mass brings with it. This is with no special knowledge; using just the numbers in your example which is what your professor wants you to use.
