1. ## Space is information (split from What is Space made of?)

Interesting discussion, and while this has got way too philosophical for me, let me make a small offering....... Space is what exists between you and me, and Earth and the Moon. If space did not exist, then everything would be together and we would be as we were before the BB. Time exists to stop everything from happening at the same instant. If there was no time, we wouldn't be here and the same applies that we would be as we were before the BB. Here I submit the following..... "The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of exper

Some much better and more satisfying to have done (most of) it yourself. +1

3. ## Finding percentage of reagent in a mixture

Ahh I see, and to explain, my only confusion in the beginning was the reaction. I must divide the final precipitate weight by the molar mass of AgCl which will give me both moles of Ag+ and Cl-. From there I can divide the moles of Cl- by 2 since MgCl2 requires 2 Cl- ions to form. So this would then give us the total moles of MgCl2, from which we can divide the weight of the moles by the weight of the original sample, which is 1.0 g. I think this is right, and I will post back whether it works or not. Aha, so it worked. My answer came out to .475 * 100 --> 47.5% of the original sample.

4. ## Finding percentage of reagent in a mixture

What does the excess mean? John Cuthber has already told you that the precipitate is all silver chloride. Can you see why? If not does anything stand out below? Did you look up solubilities as I suggested? In solution there are (before precipitation) Cations : Mg2+, Na+ and Ag+ Anions : Cl- , NO3- Possible salts and solubilities MgCl2 very soluble NaCl very soluble AgCl low solubility Mg(No3)2 very soluble NaNO3 very soluble AgNO3 soluble So your 1.43 grams of precipitate is made up of what? Can y

5. ## What factor does the amplitutde change?

Also, are you aware of the relationship between the amplitude and the intensity of a sound wave? Hint: they are not directly proportional.

Original Post (first post) in this case but it can also mean Original Poster if that's the context.

8. ## Angular momentum

here is brief explanation: the moment of inertia (on its own axis)of cat is different on the branch compared to moment of inertia when falling . so does the angular velocity. hence to conserve angular momentum it twist itself..

9. ## The percentage problem

Hmm, so to be sure I am not misunderstanding your question, but you wonder how the initial eye development (for instance) would start? I will give an example (which most likely isn't true, but I feel like it should give a conceptual idea of progression from 0% to 0.0000001%): Let's say we have, through random variation, the first production of a protein which imports calcium through the membrane of the cell. After a while, through more variation this protein is changed ever so slightly and now reacts to light; only letting calcium through after it has been hit by light, this change does n

10. ## Black Hole: Why do we believe that matter could be such dense?

Recall that Strange made an unqualified "(the rest of the universe would look increasingly blue-shifted)", which is wrong. That's what I responded to. Sure within BH in-fall scenario an in-faller will encounter a mix of transverse and radial light ray components. The former becomes an increasingly minute contribution as in-fall proceeds to small r, since only the radial component of photon momenta get gravitationally boosted as in-fall proceeds. Taking as a given the formal GR calcs of Hamilton are indeed valid, it's (sort of) obvious from his color coded movie that for the vast majority
