Re: AP Calc BC 2009

Now that it has been 48 hours since the test and we can discuss things, I'm willing to go through number 6 for people if someone can help me get the math tags right. Otherwise it's gonna be hella hard to read. Edit: I think I figured out the math tags. Now I'm happy since I finally understand LaTeX!...

Why does stuff like this have to come to my attention the week I have AP exams?

Re: Chemistry Demonstrations

My chemistry teacher is going to have us (probably me) blow up an egg with hydrogen next week, after we take the AP test. Apparently, she doesn't have enough hydrogen to fill a large enough balloon to be exciting and she doesn't want to generate more, so I get to hollow out an eggshell and we're blo...

Re: AP Calc BC 2009

I'm not going to go into details until we get back the free-response questions, but I will tell you that most of what you talked about inside that spoiler seems about right. I can tell you that you can find the series for things like e^(x^2) and such without recalculating the entire series. If you w...

Re: D&D: 1e, 2e, 3.0/3.5, 4e: which do you prefer?

It sounds like I really need to read more into 4th edition before I write it off entirely. I guess I'll wait a while, see what other books come out, and mess around with it some. I'm sure that if I get the right group, it'll be just as fun as 3.5, my current favorite. Part of the problem is that the...

Re: D&D: 1e, 2e, 3.0/3.5, 4e: which do you prefer?

The thing about 4th edition that really killed it for me was the lack of freedom. In 3.5, you have a ton of freedom and customization. As has been mentioned, in 4, you really don't have the same amount of freedom to customize anything or do what you want. Now, part of that may have been our group's ...

Re: D&D: 1e, 2e, 3.0/3.5, 4e: which do you prefer?

3.5 is the clear winner from my point of view. 4e felt like to much of a sellout to the style used in MMORPGs in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience. I'm also somewhat partial to 2e AD&D, as I got my start in D&D playing Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2 (which I still need to go beat s...

Re: Probing The Inaccuracies: Space Warfare

True enough. I guess I was trying to suggest less that space warfare itself would cease, and more that as the weapons developed, they would eventually become so powerful that they wouldn't be used, and warfare would go back to earlier means. Like what has happened over the last fifty years or so, wi...

Re: Negative pH

I guess the answer is "yes" but then it no longer becomes a pH reading and becomes this . "The pH scale is not an absolute scale; it is relative to a set of standard solutions whose pH is established by international agreement." So it's not like temperature where you just add ze...

Re: Probing The Inaccuracies: Space Warfare

I get the feeling that, because of everything that's been stated, space warfare will very quickly become obsolete after it is developed. It seems as though weapons systems will become so efficient and lethal and the projectiles so fast that the only thing a ship would have time to do in self-defense...

Re: Comical mistakes in your homework.

When we were doing various equilibrium problems in AP chem, I kept getting negative values for concentrations. I couldn't figure out why. I checked my setup, and it was right. I checked that I'd entered everything into the calculator correctly, saw that it was right as well. I then realized that I w...
