1. ### A Battery and An Alternator

Ok, then I was right when I tried to explain to my dad other reasons why it wouldn't work. Since this has been proven it doesn't work, why have people pursued it so vigourously? ~Kitty
2. ### Standing on Dead Sea

What do you mean with the Zen Buddhist? ~Kitty
3. ### A Battery and An Alternator

Could you run a car with just a battery and an alternator by having the alternator recharge the battery by using the motion of the wheels and other parts? ~Kitty

5. ### String length and period

By increasing the length of the string, you increase the distance the needed to travel. So even though you have not changed the amplitude or the mass at the end of the string it will still take longer to travel that distance. Simply, it takes longer to complete one cycle if it has further to...
6. ### Going back in time ?

I tend to lean closer to the quantum theory point of view rather than the relative. Its easier to stretch my brain around it. Kitty
7. ### Most Fascinating Areas in Physics Today?

What does that mean when matter is said to be 'baryonic'? I'm not familiar with the term.
8. ### Most Fascinating Areas in Physics Today?

That's a lot of physics to cover; especially since this an opinion based query you posted. It would be interesting to read a magazine with suh diverse topics though. :smile:
9. ### Quick explanation for wormholes

Pervect, that was a cool link by the way. One thing that wasn't mentioned in the article was how a wormhole is created. How is a wormhole created?
10. ### Quick explanation for wormholes

What would consitute "exotic matter"? I know this much:_: which is nothing on this subject. Which is why it interests me. :wink:
11. ### Force that will be created on the component

How much force does the mass exert on the componant? Wouldn't the force the componant exerted be equal and opposite, because its pushing back on the mass, to the magnitude of the force the componant exerts? As far as calculating the time I don't know.
12. ### Going back in time ?

Hmm, that's interesting I have not heard that. Even if you couldn't erase world lines just fulfill them, you might end up altering the future without knowing it. You wouldn't be erasing would lines just changing small parts. I find it rather hard to wrap my mind around not being able to change...
13. ### Quick explanation for wormholes

That's not a dumb question at all. I've actually been wondering her the same thing.
14. ### What does imaginary time mean

Oh, I wish we had gone over that in my math class. So how do you compare time if they are imaginary numbers? Would you check to see if the a term os greater than the b term?
15. ### What does imaginary time mean

So what does that mean; how do you compare time if you can't compare two imaginary numbers?
16. ### Going back in time ?

Mariko has a point; there would be a huge risk of changing the future and not always for the better. For example, it would be great if we could use the information we have about Hitler's whereabouts during the Second World War so we could go back, hunt hinm down and kill him. However, we have no...
17. ### For people who speak french !

I took 5 years of french love and i would be more than happy to help you :smile:, but I'm not 100% clear on what you are asking for. Could you clarify a little bit...by the way, my french was only to the four honors level so its not AP:blushing:. I'll still help as best I can. I also understand...
18. ### Wierd occurrence with Pepsi

That is very interesting and strange. I've never heard anything like that! In an attempt to answer your questions: 1) I would also assume slow diffusion, but corrosion can't be ruled out entirely...do you know that coke can clean away rust among other things? 2) I might expect a higher...
