  1. Because you can’t actually be in equilibrium during the process and have it take a finite time
  2. If they have an equal magnitude, the shift from the velocity and the shift from the expansion should cancel if the object is moving toward us and far enough away that the expansion is occurring (i.e. gravity is not overriding it)
  3. Robots use could be because of physical danger from e.g. falling debris.
  4. Speak for yourself. This doesn't seem to be an impediment for others.
  5. AUDI R6 has been suspended 3 days for abusive comments and blatant trolling
  6. More like irrelevant. Didn't mean to imply it was intentional.
  7. ! Moderator Note Since this is essentially the same question, threads have been merged You add the vectors. It will accelerate in the direction of the resultant. The spacetime expansion comment is a red herring (or possibly blue herring if you are moving toward it quickly enough) since expansion will not overcome the intermolecular bonds
  8. I refer you to the response I gave some moments ago.
  9. Asserted without evidence. Can I combine electrostatics with mechanics? Coulomb's law says nothing about the motion of an object, yet I think I can describe the classical motion of a charged particle in proximity to another charged particle. I thought you knew all of physics.
  10. Why is this a requirement? Asserted without evidence.
  11. I thought you knew all physics?
  12. Why what? reversible means dS = 0 https://web.mit.edu/16.unified/www/FALL/thermodynamics/notes/node48.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_law_of_thermodynamics#Derivation_of_the_entropy_change_for_reversible_processes
  13. You were also given thermal noise.
  14. What does one have to do with the other? (physician = medical doctor)
