# What is Final: Definition and 1000 Discussions

Final Destination is an American horror franchise composed of five films, two comic books, and nine novels. It is based on an unproduced spec script by Jeffrey Reddick, originally written for The X-Files television series, and was distributed by New Line Cinema. All five films center around a small group of people who escape impending death when one individual (the protagonist of each film) has a sudden premonition and warns them that they will all die in a terrible mass-casualty accident. After avoiding their foretold deaths, the survivors are killed one by one in bizarre accidents caused by an unseen force creating complicated chains of cause and effect, resembling Rube Goldberg machines in their complexity, and then read omens sent by another unseen entity in order to again avert their deaths.
The series is noteworthy among other films in the horror genre in that the antagonist is not a stereotypical slasher or other physical being, but Death manifested, subtly manipulating circumstances in the environment with a design on claiming anyone who escapes their fated demise.
In addition to the films, a novel series, which includes the novelizations of the first three films, was published throughout 2005 and 2006 by Black Flame. A one-shot comic book titled Final Destination: Sacrifice was released alongside select DVDs of Final Destination 3 in 2006, and a comic book series titled Final Destination: Spring Break was published by Zenescope Entertainment in 2007.

1. ### Mixing two gases in an isolated system and calculating final p and T

Hey everyone, I have an attempt at fully solving this problem (my final pressure is ##p_f = 5373,64 hPa##, final temp. is ##T_f = 303,15K = 30C##), but this exercise confuses me very much. First, I have not used the masses in my calculations and I'm pretty sure my prof. accidentally copypasted...
2. ### Final Angular Momentum of a Space Station

Li = Lrf +Ltf Iωo = Iωf + mvRsinθ I = MR^2 (MR^2)ωo = (MR^2)ωf + mvRsinθ ωf = (MR^2ωo -mvRsinθ)/MR^2 = 3.99
3. ### The final velocity of a ball rolling while slipping.

Here is the problem statement along with the figure. Here, I take the right-ward and anti-clockwise directions to be positive. After the ball collides with the wall, its angular velocity remains the same and its velocity changes direction while remaining the same in magnitude. Using the...
4. ### Final velocity involving a can of soup and an inclined plane

a = 9.8*sin(25*pi/180)=>a=4.1417 m/s^2 vf^2=vi^2+2*a*s=>vf=sqrt(0^2+2*4.1417*3)=>vf=4.9850 m/s Meanwhile the correct answer is: (vf+vi)/2=>(vf+0)/2=2=>vf=4 m/s Why is my answer wrong? It seems that the acceleration is what is wrong, but I don't understand why.
5. ### Find the final velocity of the bobsled after the last bobsledder jumps in

For calculating the total impulse, I'm taking the individual impact force times the elapsed time and adding them all together to get the total impulse. Given F = 25N, ## \Delta t_1 =3 secs##, ##\Delta t_2 = 4secs##, ## \Delta t_3 = 5secs##, ## \Delta t_4 = 6secs##. $$Impulse 1 = F \Delta t_1$$...
6. ### Finding the final speed of a space probe using work and kinetic energy

First I found work: W=(3.85x10^5)(2.45x10^8) W= 9.43x10^13 Then used that for difference of kinetic energy: 9.43x10^13 = (1/2) (4.55x10^4)v2^2 - (1/2)(4.55x10^4)(1.22x10^4)^2 9.43x10^13 = (22750)v2^2 - 3.386x10^12 9.43x10^13 + 3.386x10^12 = (22750)v2^2 9.77x10^13 = 22750v2^2 9.77x10^13/22750...
7. ### A cart collides with a bumper -- Find the final displacements, etc.

I'm using conservation of energy to solve for both a) and b). a) Initially, the cart is released from rest, which has maximum GPE at the top of the inclined plane. U_g is converted to K.E as it reaches the bottom of the incline. $$E_i = E_f$$ $$U_g = K.E_f$$ $$2mgh = \frac {1}{2}2mv^2$$  v...
8. ### Final velocity of a block on a spring pulled downhill

Note: wording is ambiguous so I assumed spring started from equilibrium, in which case it stretches as we go downslope. Final height (at lower point on slope) is 0. Distance along slope = Distance the spring stretches = d= ##s_f## = ##2/cos{\theta}## =2.13 Height change = h = ##2 tan{\theta}##...
9. ### Calculating how many revolutions it takes to reach the final speed

11 rpm equals 1.15 rad/ sec not sure how this helps contribute to the question but I solved for it just in case
10. ### Final year raytracer project ideas

Hi there. I am about to enter my final year of a computer science bachelor degree and must do a final year project that spans most of the academic year. I have some experience on the artistic side of computer graphics but none in the computer science side. I would be interested in developing...
11. ### B Effect of JWST mirror damage on final images

As most of us know, James Webb Space Telescope suffered a damage to one of its mirror segments due to meteoroid impact. How will that damage show in the images? Some people on certain forum I visit say that there will be some artifacts visible in only one part of the image, but that doesn't...
12. ### Final year University Project, Music Visualisation question

Hi there. I start my final year of my computer science degree this September and, alongside other modules, will do an independent final year project. I have not had very much CS experience outside my degree so I am a bit unsure what would be feasible for me while not being too trivial such that...
13. ### Calculating Max Tension, Final Angle for Swinging on Rope Over Lake

Please tell me if I need to post my solution for this.., but I just have a question more or less 'conceptual' question about (c). so I know that from Newton's 2nd law for centripetal acceleration --> ##F_{rope} - mgcos(\theta) = ma_n## where ##a_n = \frac {v^2}{R}## such that where the normal...
14. ### Find v_1 for projectile using start position, final position and angle

I have attempted the problem a few times, and have posted my work below. I thought to check my work using ## v_x t = v_1 \times \cos\theta \times t = \Delta x## to see if I get back expected results, and I did for the horizontal motion (the substitutions are from the numbered steps below): ##...

16. ### I When are the initial and final momentums the same (conserved)?

In a system with no external force like gravity, the final and initial momentums are conserved. If we have a firework that explodes radially (disregarding gravity), the momentum before the explosion should equal the momentum after explosion. But isn't the explosion caused by an external force?

43. ### I How to Get Final Fisher Matrix from 2 Matrices

I have 2 Fisher matrixes which represent information for the same variables (I mean columns/rows are the same in the 2 matrixes). Now I would like to make the cross synthesis of these 2 matrixes by applying for each parameter the well known formula (coming from Maximum Likelihood Estimator...
44. ### Final Image position for a setup with two lenses

First image is an object for the concave lens so won't +ve direction change from right to left?! In that case, object distance will be -ve (from concave lens towards right side). Any ideas? Solution in the book takes first image's distance to be +ve. See attached ray diagram for clarification...
45. ### Calculating Final Positions & Velocities for M1, M2 & Spring After DeltaT

Let's say you have two masses on either side of a spring. Mass 1 is connected to the end of a spring. The spring itself has no mass. Mass 2 is free in space. So you have: [M1]-[spring] [M2]So it's more descriptive, I'll name the variables like you might in programming. Let's define...

47. ### The final velocity = initial velocity + acceleration x time

I first calculated initial velocity: √7.09^2+1.07^2=7.17028 acceleration=√7.22^2+2.47^2= 7.63 then i substituted all values into this equation: final velocity=initial velocity + acceleration x time so, final velocity=82.0285 so the magnitude= final velocity-initial velocity= 74.858271 is...
48. ### Not sure where this final Hamiltonian came from

Here's the problem and the solution provided online by the author (the problem numbers are different but it's the same question). I think I'm okay up until the last step where he declares the Hamiltonian is (1 1 1 -1). Where did he get those components?
49. ### B Converting the final result of a trigonometric identity back into its original form

Hi, K₁cos(θt+φ)=K₁cos(θt)cos(φ)-K₁sin(θt)sin(φ)=K₁K₂cos(θt)-K₁K₃sin(θt) Let's assume φ=30° , K₁=5 5cos(θt+30°) = 5cos(θt)cos(30°)-5sin(θt)sin(30°) = (5)0.866cos(θt)-(5)0.5sin(θt) = 4.33cos(θt)-2.5sin(θt) If only the final result, 4.33cos(θt)-2.5sin(θt), is given, how do I find the original...
