1. Wait there are things that exist that have no length, no width, and no height? That's one of the funniest things I've ever heard.
2. Of course something cannot exist in nothing, since there is nothing there for it to exist in. Objects aren't made of space(nothingness) they are separated by it.
3. Hey that raises a good question, is there a science dictionary?
4. How does the equation represent movement if non of it's terms involve movement?
5. Perhaps I should have specified that I was looking for what you guys think the scientific definitions of these words are. By scientific definitions I mean ones that are non-contradictory and can be used consistently. For me: Exist: physical presence Object: that which has shape Space: that which lacks shape Universe: all the objects that exist
6. I think I see now, the distance in Newton's Second Law is the distance-traveled by one object(dynamic, like a movie), while the distance in Newton's Gravitational Equation is the distance between two objects(static like a photo).
7. Maybe I'm missing something here but I don't see how mass is motion, or how distance is motion, or how the gravitational constant is motion.
8. That depends how you define space. If I define space as that which doesn't have shape, then space has no borders, since borders only apply to objects(that which has shape). For anyone who claims space has shape, what gives shape to space? What contours it?
9. I define it as static since there is no motion involved.
10. Is acceleration not the change in velocity over time? If nothing is moving then there is no acceleration.
11. So a(acceleration?) = G(universal gravitational constant?) times m(mass?) divided by r^2(radius?) None of those terms involve motion.
12. Well first you should define quantum and force. Quantum is a continuous particle, while force is a mathematical concept relating to motion. So what you're asking is if there is a particle of a concept. Seeing that concepts are relationships amongst objects the question becomes easy to answer. No.
13. Since force is dynamic I've been wondering why gravity is called a force. Something like: F = ma <---dynamic since it involves acceleration F = GMm/R² <---static since no motion is involved Shouldn't it be: Tension = GMm/R²
14. I was wondering what the people on this forum define the following words as: exist - object - space - universe -
