1. ### Zero-point energy + Thermal runaway

Drakkith thank you for using the same info I used to pose the question. You sadly missed my question. I do thank you for your response tho.
2. ### Zero-point energy + Thermal runaway

Thank you Kurros. I was asking about (a slow burn) so then the proximity to absolute 0 would have no effect on the rate of the reaction.
3. ### Zero-point energy + Thermal runaway

IF I am in error, forgive me. but I had this thought cross my mind today. IF absolute 0 is the stopping of all atomic (or molecular) movement. and you induce a thermal reaction, i.e. splitting the nuclei. would the reaction be slowed down at all? (to make a slow burn) Yea. I understand...
4. ### Laser/active medium question.

I think you are right. I'm not as smart as you all. I like thinking of this stuff I prefer stellar physics. But..I wonder so much about so many things. So I am going to retry asking my question. I pump light in go a argon active medium chamber what i get out is 10 WATS of green beam...
5. ### E=mc question

I am aware that trek beaming is fiction. but i did not know what the units was. be it per Kg or per atom.
6. ### E=mc question

175 is the weight in pounds. the converter says 79.3 Kg. took that times C times C and got 2,745,884,520,000. As the reply said that the unit is Kg for mass and Joules for E then it would take 2,745,884,520,000 joules of power to create that 175 pounds. but in transportation (beaming) you...
7. ### Laser/active medium question.

i presume you are referring to the 10 Wat's. one needs a starting point.
8. ### Laser/active medium question.

I have no doubt that someone, someone somewhere has tried this. but if you take a 10 WAT output from a argon beam and run it through a Rubie Active medium chamber I would expect that the light would be excited to a higher range. Am I in error?
9. ### E=mc question

Not that I can. but. at 175 pounds. or 79.37 E=2,745,884,520,000 Joules needed to form M 79.37 we are skipping the facts that it would have to be put together in a sequence to that of a DNA strand. thank you for helping me understand the formula. PF mentor.
10. ### E=mc question

This is what I was looking for. thank you. on a side note. I thought ℂ= 186,k miles per sec.
11. ### E=mc question

Ok. it does matter. if we are talking 1 wat per pound. or 1gigawat per atom.
12. ### E=mc question

e=energy m=mater c=speed of light Squared. i am not one of you. im a simple joe. so. energy =mater times the speed of light. Times the speed of light. ? or energy=mater times (ℂ time ℂ) ? (aprox 36 trillion) Next question. If we know the formula, what are the measurements? are we talking...

I had this elaborate example all set up to lay my question out. and I can hear my x wife in my head. "you over think everything" So here is my question. I do not understand free falls 93feet/sec /second. this sounds to me that Tim would be doing 279 feet per second after only 3 seconds...
14. ### If the moon suddenly vanished, what would people on earth experience?

In fact, the moon IS gathering it's belongings ands is looking for a new apartment. The man in the moon is in fact little by little slipping away from the earth. There will be affects will have some effects but not in the cataclysmic proportions that the doomsayers) think.
15. ### Will light eventually fade away given enough distance?

JLA727, that would be failure of the optic nerve. Not due to the lack of light. I can stand in Missouri and see stars that are untold light years away.
16. ### If the moon suddenly vanished, what would people on earth experience?

I have to admit, I made a error in this statement. With only the sun to create tides. Noon and midnight would be the high tides. 3 and 9 would be the low tides.
17. ### Effect of molten ice on water

So then the water level will not change in the least bit. assuming tht hte icecube flaots with as much as its self under the surface. (wich it will do). How many can agrea with Doc Al?
18. ### Effect of molten ice on water

Do make sure its a WARM bath.
19. ### Effect of molten ice on water

I'm not debating this for the fun of it. I am actually trying to learn as well. If I am in error, I like to know so. and learn from my mistakes. As i understand, the displacement value of a object is more about the volume it takes up. not its mass. a 1inch cube of steel and a 1 inch cube of...
20. ### Effect of molten ice on water

Then we have a lack of information. A. Rahil did not say if the water was salty. B. he did not state that the water had been taken from the beaker, then frozen. C. I myself did not say that the density of the ice is what breaks the jar. it is the expansion of the ice as if freezes. D. I...
21. ### Effect of molten ice on water

we are still talking about a beaker and a ice cube. If a iceberg was used, I would nod in agreement with you. But place a ice cube in your tea, and all but a smidgen is under the surface.
22. ### Visual question of light.

Then the answer could only be found by actually making the paint. (to find out if the pigments required to reflect ultraviolet light, would in fact absorb all other spectrum's or allow them to pass through.) if the paint is Translucent/transparent then the human eye would see a gloss...
23. ### Effect of molten ice on water

Water freezes and it expands. this is why your Pepsi can explodes. this is also why your water bottle can and often will break. want to test this? take a mason jar, fill it to the lip. cap it and freeze it. be ready for the clean up. I don't have to know the formula's to know that water...
24. ### Effect of molten ice on water

displacement value of the liquid vs the displacement value of the solid. the water level would go down. The ice has a larger displacement value than the liquid it is made of.
25. ### Visual question of light.

The thing is. I am not looking for a specific answer. I am looking for the right answer. my room mate thinks it would be a black hole effect. that is its flat black no light what so ever. I do not agree with him. I believe it would be clear and you would see the wood under the paint.
26. ### What is space, literally

Space. the distance between one point and another. also known as, the dream, game board we play our reality on.
27. ### If the moon suddenly vanished, what would people on earth experience?

The Gravitational pull would be from the sun only. therefor we would only have 1 high tide and only at or about noon everyday. the lowest low tide would be on or about midnight. there would be effects on the animal kingdom as it would disrupt them to veritable degrees
28. ### Visual question of light.

Ladies and gentlemen. I come here with questions because as a Physics Forum for the following reasons. 1. you are taking classes That I never got to take. 2. I believe that you are in fact smarter than I am. 3. Should I present a challenging idea during a question. you might help me work...
29. ### Visual question of light.

Born2bWire. 1. ""I think a better question would be, "If we went into a dark room and turned on an ultraviolet source, what would we see?""" 1,a.That is no where near what I asked. and you would if the room was 100% absent of light, and the ultraviolet light sorce was 100% in the bandwith of...
30. ### Visual question of light.

DrDu. I don't understand your post at all: a) What is a "visual question"? b) The device you are talking about, matches the ultra violet to what? c) Why does this device need to be computerized? What i do not understand is how someone who is in an advanced class in physics, can not...
