[Homework] Wavefront Train Observer Problem [solved]

Recently our physics 3 class moved from thermodynamics to relativity. On the homework we had a problem that asks us to find the time an observer C sees two wavefronts reach a point C' on a train. The exact wording of the problem is Assume that the train shown in the figure below is 1.1 km long as me...

Re: Can you produce [X] in less than 15 seconds?

Yes, a SNES, a N64, and do they make game cubes anymore? Because I can also produce one of those.

Can you produce a novel that you have been putting off reading?

Black Holes

So I was readin a brief history in time recently. And they started talking about how in all the infinite universes each could possibly hold it's own laws of science. Theoreticaly, the big bang singularity was most likely infinitely dense like a black hole is. Is it possible that at a black hole, phy...

Re: Robopro hardware issue

We're using an older model for the interface. I can't find it on the interweb for the life of me. But apparently there is away to piggyback them but none of the teachers can remember. Only one teacher knew and he forgot how.

For my principles of engineering class we have to make a marble sorter using robopro. Well unfortunately my design require 6 motors(lamp included) and the interface only has 4 motor slots. Does anyone know how to piggyback two interfaces? I've searched google but to no avail. :(

Getting killed by a meteor

So I was talking with my friend about why I'm trying to avoid something. When she asked why I responded with what if i get killed by a meteor! Maybe not a big meteor maybe something more bullet sized or slightly larger. What are the odds of this and would the collision kill me?
