    Back by popular demand, we will have our next Physics Quiz/Trivia during this Sunday's Chat. It will take place in the Quiz/Trivia Chat Room starting at 3:00 pm US Central Daylight Time.

    Quiz/Trivia Rules:

    1. Please refrain from any conversation/discussion during the running of the game. You may ask for clarification, etc. related to the quiz/trivia, but all other discussion should be confined till after the game is over, or in another Chat room.

    2. Each question will typically carry 1 point for a correct answer, unless otherwise noted.

    3. The first member to type and display the correct answer in the Chat room will receive the point. Typos will be tolerated to the extent that the intention of the member is clear in what was typed.

    4. You are allowed only ONE attempt at giving an answer to a particular question. Multiple attempts are not allowed.

    5. Please make sure you are able to view graphics (jpg, gif, pdf), and you have a calculator handy.

    6. Points will be tallied and the winner will be announced at the end of the game and posted.

    Just a reminder that we are barely a day away from our physics Quiz/Trivia. I have updated the rules of the game, so please go back and read the first post of this thread.

    Looking forward to seeing you in Chat tomorrow, 3:00 pm CDT.

    Is there a theme/topic? Or just general physics?

    Since you give the time in USA CDT rather than GMT, I take it this event is intended only for North Americans? :tongue2:

    Since the time is not given in EDT, I will not be participating. Besides, my wife is dragging me to Mitsuwa today.

    Thanks to everyone who participated. It was a lot of fun (and a lot of work). I was truly impressed that many of you could work under such pressure and speed!

    The list of winners will be posted soon, if it hasn't already.
