    Hi Jilan, Thanks for the message. Apologies for the delayin response. I fell ill due to sunstroke and was also busy doing my admission to the new university at the same time. Do you think we can do anything to take this idea of "creating gravity by bending of light" ahead?

    Peddle is usually used to sell something. Pedal is usually referring to riding a bicycle. In Jilan's post about back stepping either one seems correct to me.

    Synopsis: Well, the OP was really about some quote from someone wanting to make money by motivating people by feeding them BS. I give xOX credit in the discussion for not asking for money.

    Yes impulse means change in momentum - Jilan ain't as dumb as he or she looks! Just kidding Jilan, you do make sense you me the few times I think I know what the heck you are talking about. ...

    He can probably give you a series of irrelevant equations, but it mystified me too.

    xOx: Their total impulse before AND after collision in the above exercise is 0. cinci: I agree. But hat you're calling impulse is momentum, not energy. So it doesn't apply to your 3X issue at...

    Well, the "negative plate of capacitor C1 is connected by a wire to the "positive" plate of the next capacitor in series, C2. If they had different charges the electrons would migrate from one plate...

    If you are talking about Kirchhoff's voltage "law," the reason is as given by x0x. In a conservative field, the net potential around any loop is zero. I don't know if you are yet familiar with vector...

    You are right. Atoms higher up on the wheel are more contracted, generally speaking, because they move faster. The atom at ground contact is virtually stationary wrt the ground, and as such...

    Good video, all you need to do is to be able to write the equations of energy/momentum conservation that explain the video.

    I've thought about this a bit more, and realized that the forces must be different in each situation. For example, as in the original example at the top, if Mass A traveling at speed X hits Mass B...
