• Is it possible to go beyond time?

    Best answer: No. We are stuck in our own personal current times. Time is defined by on-going events. As the events of the past are done deals, there is no time in the past. As the events of the future are yet to unfold, there is no time in the future. We cannot go beyond our own personal time, the current, because there is... show more
    Best answer: No. We are stuck in our own personal current times. Time is defined by on-going events. As the events of the past are done deals, there is no time in the past. As the events of the future are yet to unfold, there is no time in the future. We cannot go beyond our own personal time, the current, because there is nowhen to go to in the past or future. They do not exist.

    You might have heard of time dilation as a way to travel into the future. Not so. The best the traveler can do is catch up with the present time of the observer in the observer's time line. And that's not the future of the traveler's timeline. To got into the future the traveler would have to go into the future of his personal time line. And that's not happening in time dilation.

  • Would this "perpetual motion" contraption work or not? I invented it by the way.?

    Would this "perpetual motion" contraption work or not? I invented it by the way.?

    So theres a see-saw like contraption with a track on it. Sitting on the track are metal plates that don't weigh much on their own. The see-saw is lifted by hand or machine up to one magnet on one side, putting the linked metal plates within range of the magnets pull. As the metal plates pile up they get heavier... show more
    So theres a see-saw like contraption with a track on it. Sitting on the track are metal plates that don't weigh much on their own. The see-saw is lifted by hand or machine up to one magnet on one side, putting the linked metal plates within range of the magnets pull. As the metal plates pile up they get heavier and eventually fall, out of range of the magnet, and lifting the other side of the see-saw to within range of the magnet on the other side, where the metal plates are pulled up and collapse the see-saw again. During the fall the see saw would turn a momentum wheel in bursts to generate electricity. So you have magnets to pull the metal plates up and gravity to pull them down. Would it work?

  • Sticking metal into an electrical outlet?

    If someone were to have a knife and stuck it into the hit slot on an electrical outlet, would they die? Could they die? How would it feel? I’m writing a book with a rather interesting character and I need to know, thanks!

  • Why don't they make bullets out of diamonds?

    Best answer: When it comes to bullets, heavier is better. Heavier is more important than harder. The amount of 'punch' a bullet has depends on its weight and its speed. So if you wanted to make ridiculously expensive bullets, gold would be better than lead. Or if you wanted to make bullets really hard you could use... show more
    Best answer: When it comes to bullets, heavier is better. Heavier is more important than harder. The amount of 'punch' a bullet has depends on its weight and its speed. So if you wanted to make ridiculously expensive bullets, gold would be better than lead.

    Or if you wanted to make bullets really hard you could use tungsten carbide. Tungsten carbide is the hardest man-made material, and it's also very heavy. Industrial cutting tools are made of it. It's expensive, but not as bad as gold. And I'm not sure if it's heavier than lead, but it is pretty heavy.

  • I have a physics question?

    Best answer: Weight is the force of gravity on an object. The object itself has mass. Now here on earth pick up a sledge hammer. You can feel the weight force. Fine.

    Best answer: Weight is the force of gravity on an object.
    The object itself has mass.
    Now here on earth pick up a sledge hammer. You can feel the weight force.
    Fine.
    Get a friend to swing it at you. When it hits do you feel some force OTHER than just the weight force?
    Of course. It takes a force to accelerate or stop a mass.
    Any time you attempt to move something you feel that force even though often you don't feel the weight force.

    A car is on wheels. The weight is supported by those wheels.
    Yet if you push a car or it runs over you it is quite obvious that it has a lot of mass.

  • Physics Impulse question?

    Best answer: Let’s use the following equation to determine the acceleration of the glass figure. F = m * a -712 = 3.8 * a a = -712 ÷ 3.8 This is approximately -187 m/s^2. Let’s use the following equation to determine the velocity of the glass figure just before the force was applied, vf = vi + a * t 0 = vi + (-712 ÷ 3.8) *... show more
    Best answer: Let’s use the following equation to determine the acceleration of the glass figure.

    F = m * a
    -712 = 3.8 * a
    a = -712 ÷ 3.8

    This is approximately -187 m/s^2. Let’s use the following equation to determine the velocity of the glass figure just before the force was applied,

    vf = vi + a * t
    0 = vi + (-712 ÷ 3.8) * 0.014
    vi = (712 ÷ 3.8) * 0.014

    This is approximately 2.62 m/s. Let’s use the following equation to determine the distance the glass figure must fall to have this velocity.

    vf^2 = vi^2 + 2 * g * d, vi = 0 m/s

    [(712 ÷ 3.8) * 0.014]^2 = 2 * 9.8 * d
    d = [(712 ÷ 3.8) * 0.014]^2 ÷ 19.6
    This is approximately 0.35 meter. I hope this is helpful for you.

  • What are quantum computers, spiritually speaking? My friend says its a computer that can interpret 0 and 1 at the same time and more?

    Best answer: That's correct. Classical computers use "bits" that are either in the off position (0), or the on position (1). A quantum computer includes a third option — both (0 and 1). This means quantum computers have greater processing power. There is an arms race in quantum computing right now because the... show more
    Best answer: That's correct. Classical computers use "bits" that are either in the off position (0), or the on position (1). A quantum computer includes a third option — both (0 and 1).

    This means quantum computers have greater processing power. There is an arms race in quantum computing right now because the first country to perfect the technology will be able to decode all existing encryption technology. The power grid. The banking system. Launch codes. Literally everything.
