    Newton's Laws - Pushing on a heavy object

    I'm trying to understand if a really heavy object on earth, say a mountain, would move if I push it with my bare hands. This sounds absurd but according to Newton's Laws, if I push against the mountain it will exert an equal and opposite force. I understand there are other forces like gravity...

    Normal distribution

    A normal distribution can be completely defined by two parameters - the mean and the standard deviation. Given a normal distribution however, say X, how can I use just the mean and the standard deviation to give me conditional expected values for X<=0 and for X>0? Im guessing the distribution...
