1. ## Distance between two points

I wasen't realy thinking 'real world' just mathematicaly. Its realy hard to explain what I mean but i'll try. If there is an infinate amount of numbers between any two numbers how can it not encompass all numbers. Example there in an infinate amount of numbers between 1 and 2 but 3 is not in there. How can you have an infinate that is in a defined range and not express all numbers is it realy infinate then?
2. ## Coin Landing on its side

How did you tell which side was up?
3. ## Distance between two points

I not sure which maths forum to stick this in so I'm putting it here I don't mind if it gets moved though. I was thinking about this earlyer and its been bugging me for a while now. Say you have two numbers 1 and 2 isn't there an inifnate amount of numbers between them? Like 1.999' So how can we ever get from one to the other? Does that make sense I'm going crazy here!
4. ## Bible code?

I just find it funny that the bible code 1 was written before 9/11 and failed to predict it while the bible code 2 written after 9/11 did predict it...whats the go there?
5. ## Take a look at this paper about General Relativity

I thought geometricized units were exclusively used in generaly reletivity? maybe I'm wrong. So does it work when you use normal units?
6. ## Why are some people ambidextrous

Actualy funny story, my dad went to catholic school and was left handed so they forced him to right with his right hand so now hes ambidextrous. So much for 'dark ages' huh? Scott
7. ## Your idea of a perfect humanity

How about what we've got now but with no guns? Scott
8. ## Why are some people ambidextrous

I would dissagree, I think by having a balance between both halves you would get the best of both worlds. But what would I know I'm not 'equimanual';) Scott
9. ## Why are some people ambidextrous

An amibidextrous person would have that same advantage as the right handed person and then some. Also I think being well coordinated with both hands would be an advantage. Scott
10. ## Take a look at this paper about General Relativity

Quote from the link And earlyer you state This would mean that you say Newtons equation for escape velocity is v=sqrt((2Gm/c2)/r) as the equation for a schwarzchild radius is r=(2Gm/c^2) However I think you will find that newtons equation for escape velocity is v=sqrt(2Gm/r). So you appear to have incorrectly stated newtons equation for escape velocity. Is this a major problem......? Scott
11. ## Why are some people ambidextrous

If I may I would like to tack on another question. Why are there more people right handed then left handed and even less ambidextrous people? Wouldn't evolution favoured the ambidextrous?
12. ## Matter Waves

I have been looking at some job websites but unfortunately there is not many of them. Also the kind of research I thinking of is theoretical like string theory and other up and coming theories. Scott
13. ## Matter Waves

Thanks for the help:-) Can I ask you how much oppertunity there is for research in physics? I don't mean is there anythig left to research but how many positions are available in research. Thanks. I think matter is fermions like quarks and electrons. But what gives matter the propety of mass? Scott
14. ## Matter Waves

Oh right kinetic energy of an ideal gas (right?). I see your equating the kinetic energy of a solid mass against the kinetic energy of a ideal gas. So for the car to be in thermal equilibrium with its surroundings they must be equal, I think I get it...Thanks:-)
15. ## Matter Waves

Thanks that makes sense i am a little lost on how you first worked out the temperature though. I don't think so we were always taught tht diffraction occurs when the wave passes through a gap that is similar is sive to the wavelength. I think the door is alot larger then your wavelength. Scott
