    My clock tells me the time I set it to. For a while. Sometimes it stops, sometimes it is fast, sometimes slow, I am not strong enough to throw it at the speed of light, but the theory is probably not...

    Looking at it this way, pedal seems more about physical activities and peddle more about mental ones. Still, it seems that just the word or phrase is less important than the context it is used in....

    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.

    2D is in the topic title. At Hani, I would certainly solve the problem for you if I could, but I don't know how to at this time, and I don't know if there is enough info to solve it.

    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.

    1. I don't know what theta means

    2. If there is height in 2D, then you can observe height and width, but not the depth. This may be not true, but you would only see 2 of the 3.

    Very interesting. This could one day maybe take over the classic computer systems of today, but it is very much still in a development stage.

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

    Oh duh. I see. The barrel is the diameter of the base of the projectile and the rifling spins it (rifle or handgun) to keep the trajectory more true - the shotgun maybe has not rifling (little twists...

    Thanks for the vacuum article. The mass of the impelled bullet would have no weight in a free space vacuum, right? Without gravity, no weight. What force is supposed to have an opposite reaction...

    I think you would have to calculate the ratio of difference in mass of the bullets to the entire mass of the ship including the guns and the cargo. Also, space is not really a vacuum and there are...

    Put it in neutral and let it slow but not to a complete stop if you can help it. It takes a lot of energy to get a mass moving from a complete stop. There are certain things to consider as to speed...

    If a capacitor had no reactance, it would have no impedence. It is basically two conductive surfaces with some sort of dielectric material between them. It reacts and holds and dissipates AC...

    Dude, it is not that simple. Capacitive reactance is not like a simple resistor. It varies with frequency and creates time delays and maybe phase changes. It has capacities to hold and delay current...

    I think the capacitive reactance will vary with the frequency dependant on the capacitance value of the capacitor, so one value of capacitor will allow or not different frequencies with different...

    I think I see. Creating a better signal to noise ratio. Minds tend to be awefully noisy though. Another thing is that how would we mutually all agree what the "crux" of the matter should be? I don't...

    I will tell you how I see this differently. Cold simply is. Dark simply is. Dry simply is, etc. Heat and light and humidity are created by certain generations of energy. If these energy sources...
