1. ## What is the most dense material that can exist on Earth?

The polyethylene is shielding for the neutrons. They go right through lead like it isn't there at all. The lead, if any, is for the gamma rays they go right through the polyethylene and need some element with a heavy nucleus to attenuate them. The ideal radiation shield has both.
2. ## electric resistance!!

The power source (car battery) has internal impedance. What this means to you is that when any load is placed on the battery its voltage drops. The bigger the load the more it drops. A starter is a very significant load and thus the voltage drop is significant. Anyway if you are running the starter the engine is not running and the alternator is not trying to hold the battery voltage up. Even touching the brake lights will dim the headlights when the engine is not running just not as much as the starter.
3. ## H2FeO4 Salts

Is it likely that one could produce a salt KSbFeO4 Any ideas? ~MINUS
4. ## What is the total sum of all numbers?

Which is just another proof that any number multiplied by infinity looses its identity... Similar things happen to any matter that falls into a singularity. The problem here is that few understand the ambiguation that happens when infinity is used. The real answer to the original post is ANY NUMBER. So 42 is just as valid as any other. The truly tragic part of this is that I cannot pick lotto numbers by summing all numbers... I would win every time. ~minus
5. ## how does the body create electricity?

A little trick of pumping sodium and potassium ions (atoms stripped of an electron) in and out of cells. This creates a charge imbalance that is imposed across the cell walls that conveniently happen to be good insulators. That is the voltage, when a nerve wants to fire things move around (the current) In a single word friction. It is slightly more complex than that as the friction works better between layers of air with differing humidity or temperature. Then there is a small current falling from the sky or climbing into the sky depending on you latitude that is the natural implementation of the aurora's. That current is a result of the solar wind of charged particles and earths own magnetic field. ~minus
6. ## lye and sugar

Lye & Sugar when heated together are a source of Carbon Monoxide. You can check wikipedia under Carbon Monoxide Not recommended unless you REALLY WANT Carbon Monoxide. ANYWAY hydrogen is so fun why would you want something else. Also if you get the Lye solution in an eye the damage is permanent.
7. ## Most worrisome thread?

Now that I have cut the red wire and the green wire and changed the combo which wire do I reconnect first? ~minus
8. ## Need help building perpetual generator

Ya know if you just balanced a bunch of pencils point down on a hard surface, you could save yourself an enormous amount of grief. It is much easier than perpetual motion, but still is impressive. ~minus
9. ## Fluoroantimonic compounds

Oh I forgot to mention I am only reacting 200uL of stuff. So the big explosion might be able to tip my 400mL Teflon beaker over. And the exothermic part I am reacting at the rate of evaporation of the Antimony PentaFluoride which is thawing out slowly. I plan on the whole reaction of the 200uL taking at least a day. Endothermic yes but only a temp rise of a few deg. ~minus
10. ## is the essence of time > movement ?

Actually unless a sub atomic particle can occupy two wave functions at the same time... time it has everything to do with wave functions. And thus my hidden dimension explanation is plausible, although quite unlikely. I just like to look for simple reasons for all unusual behavior. ~minus
11. ## Fluoroantimonic compounds

1) I would be about a mile away when the Antimony Pentafluoride melts. 2) I cannot afford to do this, even the raw materials far exceed my limited research budget. 3) If I do find a way to procure the stuff, all of the stuff (win the lotto) I really do not like HF... the stuff scares me... I've used it but I don't like it. I think I will stick with Nitrogen Monoxide and Carbon Monoxide and make my Iron Nitrosyl Carbonyl and the like. Just want to keep the mind pushing the envelope. What I really want to know is: what would be the properties of Iron Fluoroantimonide, would it be Iron (II) or Iron (III) would it be ferromagnetic and similar questions. I would be happy if I could get Iron(???) (Halogen of choice) antimonide. Thanks for your concern. ~minus

I believe that Isomeric Transformation changes in nuclei can happen without movement. change without movement ? how Wave function change Well at least only movement in wave function... is that a dimension? ~minus NO Wave function could be a dimension that is quantized at a level that includes it largest dimension ... too many possibilities for my little brain.
14. ## What is the total sum of all numbers?

Cool then we are all right *GROUP HUG* This kind of math certainly explains global warming and coming ice age at the same time. Those climate guys just need to keep adding those numbers up and they can give us any answer we are willing to pay for... It is still 42 as is global warming. ~minus
