Dear Physics Forum, I have currently been reading Charles Carrolls Chaos Theory which uses the experiments of MIT meteorologist Edward Lorenz to develop linear relationships between speed and distance which has led me to a few questions that I’d like to ask. I wanted to know if it is possible that the numbers in a final time up to 3 decimal places can indicate A. Class, B. Speed, C. Stamina and whether there has been any scientific investigations that prove this. There must be more to time than just a number, I’m particularly putting this into context within times recorded through athletes both human and equine rather than just the everyday number on your clock.
