comment Started using Latex
You can find some of these answers on this site: for sine waves. If you do a google search on latex circuits tikz site:tex.stackexchange.com and the like, you should be able to get started on these other projects. Both TikZ and pstricks are great, but they also have their own learning curves to deal with.

comment Minipage with four figures - avoiding too much whitespace
@shadowhorst A % at the end of the line prevents unintended whitespace from creeping in. A single % would have sufficed. I've somehow gotten into the habit of doubling these because of how they appear in my editor and it also makes them a bit more easy to spot (particularly when it looks like whitespace has crept in where I don't want it and I'm trying to debug things).

comment How to prevent badly cut words in latex?
@alfC I'm not sure I agree. I usually want to produce a beautiful document. In that case, "ugly" is wrong. And there are times where LaTeX, for all that it does right, can overhyphenate (even for this native speaker). If 50 percent of the sentences (lines?) are getting hyphenated, I'd say that's excessive. Hence the beauty of LaTeX in that it allows us to change penalties for less ugly results. :)

comment Simple beam deflection tikz
In addition to the suggestion made by @ClaudioFiandrino , this is very similar to a question I recently answered How to plot a figure like the attached?

comment How to get a *lazy* list to play nice with other environments
@egreg That's why I was trying to wrap things in group. So, why is my grouping not working out. As I count it the \bgroup and \egroup tokens should all be matched.

comment Input a tex file in my document, but it's not placed well
@JohnKormylo As long as e-TeX is around, then there are nominally more that 256 boxes to be used since e-TeX increases these to 32768 boxes.

comment Tikz node centers with scaling
This seems to be caused by a rounding error when TikZ is scaling and retrieving the coordinates for the center of the node. You can repeat this by writing \node (B) at (A.center) [red] {}; and then create a node C etc. Then examine the coordinates for the center of these nodes using: \foreach \myn in {A,B,C} {\pgfextractx\aex{\pgfpointanchor{\myn}{center}} \pgfextractx\aey{\pgfpointanchor{\myn}{center}} \typeout{==> \myn ==> [\the\aecm]\the\aex,\the\aey}} where \aex, \aey, and \aecm are lengths, and \aecm has length 1 cm.

It might be good for you to check out some of the suggestions at Where can I find the standard LaTeX reference manual?

comment How to write an equation in LaTeX?
Negative points seem unfair. We'd like to encourage people to use LaTeX and not run off people just because they don't know how to get started. The op doesn't know what to do. Minimally you could say something helpful.
