    Glass: Liquid or solid

    So... A liquid can be defined as a substance that flows? How many liquids flow in outerspace and thefore would glass be a liquid if the gravity of the planet it was on, was not strong enough to accelerate the particles down towards the ground. At a certain pressure would glass be a solid and...

    Glass: Liquid or solid

    Ive heard some arguments for and against glass being a liquid. But what is it officially?

    What is the most important constant in physics?

    e is the most significant (e is the charge of an electron right?) If there was not speed limit of nature it wouldn't really affect our lives as much if there was no charge then we would sink through the floor since the molecules wouldn't have a intermolecular relationship keeping them rigid...

    NASA research propels development of new glass.

    how is this glass any different from nomral glass. Is there any advantage to it at all?how is it structurally different?

    State and shape of electron?

    bezun where do u get ur background knowledge from? I am sorry but you are wrong. But people like you who criticize the system are very important. keep criticising and one day u may find a mistake with the system. It is that kind of imagination that comes up with new theories.

    Why do atoms want a full outer shell?

    sorry can u explain to me what spin is please. Its more complecated than just simply a turning motion isn't it? what does it mean when spin = half. Is spin a known quantity which can be derrived by base quantities?

    Why do atoms want a full outer shell?

    ...yes. Does anyone know why, is there a force involved, or an equalibrium that is trying to be acheived, if anyone has any idea please say

    Nothing is something

    Could it be that we only percieve the "font-end" of our universe and that there is a some kind of system woven into the fabric of space time which we don't see?

    Nothing is something

    In your thread you have asked no questions. But in my opinion you can say any thing in philosophy and there could be no evidence for or against it. For instance; is our universe a computer simulation (like in the Matrix trilogy) there is no evidence for or against it, i know this is a very De...

    Boiling water & salt

    well if you take a look at the structure of how water groups, the molecules cluster very close together forming a sperical blob. If you look at http://www.lsbu.ac.uk/water/clusters.html [Broken] you can see how 280 water molecules arrange in a blob. By looking at this diagram you can get an idea...

    The moon

    bloody genius. i didnt think of that, do u think that's maybe how saturn got its rings, would the rings cancel out some of the Earth's gravity or would it add, or would it stay the same?

    Is Kinetic engergy relative to an observer?

    since heat is to do with the motion of a particle (vibrations) could heat be relative, would the speed of the Earth suddenly changing cause a fluctuation of tempereatures all over the world, or have i just made a question up on complete lack of back ground knowledge?

    Is Kinetic engergy relative to an observer?

    Since all motion is relative to an inertial frame of reference, is a bodies kenetic energy only relevant when the observer is the intertial frame of reference? (i.e. would the kinetic energy be different for another observer and if so does this violate any of the principles of energy...

    The moon

    Since every mass in the universe is attracted to every other mass, though some more than others obviously (as we don't go all flying towards trees and houses, The forces deemed signifcant on us would change. Gravity would no longer be down, but there would be a new resultant gravity depending on...

    Before I explain let me tell you this. If you see a ||||| do not be allarmed. It is to prevent my diagram from being squashed into meaningless rubish by the server as ot will automatically remove mutliple spaces from this post reply. Understanding what's going on here will require you know...

    Easy Physics problem

    sorry my diagram which i spend ages on got ruined by the system. Many apologies it seems to have taken out all of the necessary spaces.

    Easy Physics problem

    First of all a ball cannot weigh .35kg, it has a mass of .35kg. Thats like saying the distance from A to B is 57Volts. The first step to solving ur problem is finding the resultant force acting on the ball. This can be done by drawing one of those cross-hair things. I will do my best to...

    Frames of Motion

    What determines whether a boat goes upstream, downstream, or straight across? Is it be the angle that the boat is pointed, the speed of the boat and the speed of the river? Things are reluctant to change their velocity and therefore direction. In order to start the boat moving it is going...
