  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acetone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methanol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzole http://www.turbofast.com.au/racefuel13.html Water in Nitromethane. Up to a maximum of 2.5 percent as this is the maximum amount that will mix without separation taking place. It reduces both preignition and detonation due to the internal cooling effect alone. water? In a piston engine, it is the ratio between the volume of the cylinder and combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of its stroke, and the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the top of its stroke.[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compression_ratio
  2. Usually yeah. The amount of fuel per liter is less since its a mix in higher octane fuel. Octane rating only denotes the fuel blend's ability to resist autoignition. The only time this wouldn't be true is in engines where the complete burning of the higher octane fuel. Burns at a higher temperature and therefore can actually give better mileage since the engine runs more efficiently. Also if the lower octane fuel ignites early before the piston completes rotation you can wind up burning a larger amount of lower octane fuel per stroke.
  3. It's called wax vapor. Or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerosene Kerosene a flammable gas
  4. Thought it was kinda cool.
  5. Yet you have terrible grammar.
  6. Non-macroscale but non-triangular. But I have never seen anything upwards of a pound.
  7. Optical(light)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optical_tweezers and acoustic tweezers(sound) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustic_tweezers
  8. Atheism book? Nah most atheists just look at religion and say they have no proof of anything they say.
  9. Watch space pirate captain harlock
  10. In computer science the convention is to assume 2. Though I think the final convention was to always specify. http://planetmath.org/node/70290 Realistically speaking computers can use any base from 2-64+ You can look them up.
  11. You have no b provided. If log x = 2.3675 and log y = 0.9750, what is the value of x+y correct to three significant figures? b^2.3675 + b^0.9750 = x+y So your thinking is true if b is 10
  12. Lets express this another way 934x=1000y . Then assume that over time y decreases by about 2-3 a year x 1-2. Lets assume that x is average female births globally per census figures and y is men born. When guys are young there are more guys than women. However guys tend to die younger. So it's about the same. If 30% of y is equal to x, what, in terms of x, is 30% of 3y? -> 3
  13. Found this article http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-28543990 There is also this article with heaps of math http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2014/140729/ncomms5492/full/ncomms5492.html About Schrodinger's cat Glimpsing this Cheshire Cat requires what quantum physicists call "weak measurement," whereby you interact with a system so gently that you avoid collapsing it from a quantum state to a classical one. Now according to Schrodinger's cat any measurement should collapse the quantum state.
  14. What if the mutation you inherit from your parents was already cancerous when you are born?
  15. So it is possible to have all the cells in your body converted into cancer cells. Fact is that baby got cancer from 2 parents now it is debatable whether they acquired cancer or weather they too inherited it from their parents and so on. In which case all of their parents cells could be cancerous and benign.
  16. So you didn't read the links? Less commonly, a mutation can be in every cell of a person’s body from birth. These mutations are typically passed from a parent to a child. This is called a germline mutation. Because this type of genetic change is in every cell of the body, including the reproductive sperm cells (in a boy’s body) and egg cells (in a girl’s body), it can be passed from generation to generation. Cancer caused by germline mutations is called inherited cancer, which makes up about 5% to 10% of all cancers.http://www.cancer.net/navigating-cancer-care/cancer-basics/genetics/genetics-cancer Inheriting a cancer gene Some people have an increased risk of some types of cancer because they already have a gene fault when they are born. They won’t necessarily develop cancer. But they are one step further along the road to developing cancer than people without that gene fault. Inherited gene faults that increase the risk of cancer are often in genes that repair mistakes in other genes. The BRCA1 gene that increases the risk of breast and ovarian cancer is a DNA repair gene. The faulty repair gene doesn’t work as it should. So it doesn’t repair the other genetic mistakes that we all gather as we go through life. In turn, this means you are more likely to gather enough mistakes to cause a cancer at a younger age. We inherit genes from both our parents. If one of your parents has a gene fault you have a 1 in 2 chance (50%) of inheriting it. The more distant your relative with a gene fault is, the lower your chance of inheriting it.http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/cancer-help/about-cancer/causes-symptoms/genes-and-inherited-cancer-risk/inherited-genes-and-cancer-risk/how-inherited-genes-cause-cancer It is rare but http://www.childrenshospitaloakland.org/main/news/a-baby-born-with-cancer-inspires-other-kids-battli-209.aspx Some kids are born with full-blown cancer.
  17. Nope. But you also said Healthy cells don't "catch" the cancer mutation. There is an element of proof involved here cancer is known to change and adapt. There is no reason why cancer couldn't mutate all cell in the human body and only manifest in certain conditions. In which case you wouldn't know if you had the mutation or not. What I am saying is that the cancer mutation could already be present in the human genome and we would have no means of determining what that mutation was without primordial samples of human DNA prior to cancer.
  18. Proof? http://www.cancer.net/navigating-cancer-care/cancer-basics/genetics/genetics-cancer Mutations (changes) in genes, either inherited from your mother and father or from damage that occurred during a person’s life, contribute to the growth and development of cancer. A baby should be perfectly healthy yet cancer can be inherited.
  19. cancer http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/cancer-help/about-cancer/what-is-cancer/cells/how-cancer-starts I think you are assuming a mutation won't propagate without any proof. Chocolate was poison. We have mutated to allow us to eat chocolate over time.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theobromine_poisoning caffeine too. Does anybody have any idea of what a primordial sample of human DNA actually looks like?
  20. http://physics.about.com/od/quantumphysics/f/schroedcat.htm According to the quantum physics wave function, after one hour the radioactive atom will be in a state where it is both decayed and not-decayed. Once a measurement of the atom is made, the wave function will collapse into one state, but until then, it will remain as a superposition of the two quantum states. If you read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schr%C3%B6dinger_equation you will see Schrodinger was talking about the quantum wave function of an electron. Performing an observation is an act of measurement. The amount of energy an electron has is based on its position within the quantum wave function. Therefore changing its state change the amount of energy the electron has.
  21. The idea was that the act of observing an atom alters the amount of energy the electron has and therefore there was no way of observing the electron in its original state.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect
  22. Have you tried applying to the electricity company? Here you need to have a high IQ and they take you on as apprentices.
  23. Don't know the exact figure I was told can't remember An enormous number. A large amount actually do nothing. 92% of the total genome I'm pretty sure the human genome project uses thousands if not millions of different samples not just one human. It is technically not a copy we cut the DNA into the chunk we want using drugs. This is why the human genome project uses so many samples. Creating human clones would be an ethics violation. At the moment we use genetics to create drugs say somebody couldn't produce some drug they needed to survive. We would use genetics to change the DNA structure of sheep or flies or whatever. Then they produce the drug we need where they originally didn't. Though they still aren't clones. Cloning is really rare there is a few sheep like dolly but the clones tended to die. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Genome_Project
