This too makes sense. More so than my original premise that finer particles (spheres) should pack more efficiently. In reviewing some sphere packing algorithms, I now find that the radius of the sphere does not affect packing efficiency.
Rather, the packing algorithm seems to be all that...
Why does ground flax seed consume about 30% more volume than whole flax? It would seem to me the finer particle size would result in the ground requiring less volume, as the "sphere packing" inefficiencies would be less?
Each of the two BHs in the collision brought in matter and energy prior to merge, neither emitting any significant energy prior to merge. Same for the combined BH after merger was complete. So, my question is, what is the source or mechanism for the 3 Sun M worth of energy release into...
"It might help if you gave some more details about what you are trying to figure out."
I was trying to understand how to physically measure the coordinates if the origin is set at the center of the spherical mass.
I understand if spherical coordinates are set at the origin, the 2 angles are...
It is pretty easy for a physics student to grasp the equivalence between mass and energy.
But, Units of length, mass, and time were established before Einstein came along with
My question is: "Why is the proportionality constant between M and E simply Csquared?"
Is this just a...
Well Marcus, you are right. Much of it is too technical for me. But, 2 questions;
1 There was no discussion of entropy pre/post bounce. Any comment on this?
2 How has the paper been received by both bounce and non-bounce mavens?
