hmm...physics?
1. ## Hackers

Many hackers hack because they like the challenge, not because they are socially deficient or have some other mental problem.
2. ## e^x=x

Guass, thats the only thing i could come up with too. The only reason i posted it was to see if someone could come up with something else because i have notice that there are some pretty good math people here.
3. ## e^x=x

e^x=x Anybody got a solution for this? I'll post the solution later, unless someone comes up with a better one and some sort of proof for it.
4. ## water

I think most people know ice is less dense than water but the original question had to do with why the cold water is at the top to form the ice in the first place. Are you saying the ice is formed at the bottom and floats to the top? Or is it the fact that the water at the top is warmer than the water at the bottom but it is still below freezing?(like i said) Or maybe its both?
5. ## water

15 degree water is warmer than 5 degree water. Just because warmer water is at the top doesnt mean it is actually warm. Hot and cold are relative.
6. ## Why do we alway say that there has to be water for there to be life?

I have always thought it is very close minded to think that all life needs water and oxygen.

9. ## Is time travel possible?

How do you have cause without effect? And if we are to discover time travel, wouldn't we know it already from time travelers from the future?
10. ## Conductivity

Actually you all are slightly mistaken. Water itself does not conduct electricity. Its the particles in the water that do the conducting. If you had perfectly pure water, it would not conduct electricity.
11. ## I Need help in Maths, PLEASE!!!

for a) you could have just set up a proportion...it seems like that would have been easier.
12. ## Dimensions

i havent heard of anything beyond string theory
13. ## Relatively ignorant question.

alt_f13, Yeah, i thought you might be joking, but you never know...i have seen posts by kids that really dont know what imaginary numbers are.
14. ## y^x = x^y

you beat me to it fafolone...
15. ## y^x = x^y

No. To solve for y in terms of x means that if you know x you can find y. In your answer you still have to know x and y to find y, so the problem still remains.
