  1. What is more important to the self; science or a temprament and attitude of science in self.

    Is there any science which can help the self to enable and empower itself with knowledge and wisdom of self to enable and empower the self with an attitude and a temprament of science.

    What is this science; where can it be known and studied; how can it be practised. Can this science also help the self to enable and empower itself with knowledge and wisdom of any type and kind.
    Can we also use this science to help ourselves for enabling and empowering ourselves with that knowledge and wisdom which had been the cause, purpose, and reason of the existance, presence and working of self and the religion and god of self.

  2. A 2.0-kg mass is attached to one end of a spring with a spring constant of 100 N/m and a 4.0-kg
    mass is attached to the other end. The masses are placed on a horizontal frictionless surface
    and the spring is compressed 10 cm. The spring is then released with the masses at rest and
    the masses oscillate. When the spring has its equilibrium length for the first time the 2.0-kg
    mass has a speed of 0.36 m/s. The mechanical energy that has been lost to the instant is:
    A. zero
    B. 0.31 J
    C. 0.61 J
    D. 0.81 J
    E. 1.2 J

    The correct answer is B. Pls. Explain.

  3. hello everybody. Lets say you had jet boots that were unstable. They provided upward thrust but you could not control the thrust. You might suddenly jet off to the right. So now, you have this idea. To a gauntlet, that works simialair to an Ion thruster. Now, you you turn you boots on. Your flying up. You suddenly jerk to the right. You power up your right hand trhruster. How much power would you need to stabilize. When I say power, how much power would you need to add to your gauntlet?

    Religion pre-decides what nature is without much evidence or understanding of what nature is. Whereas science lets the experiments and the equations decide what nature is.

    She’s gonna come out as she is, and science is there to observe her as she is.

    But not religion. It pre-decides what she is. And it’s been demonstrated before that religion has been wrong; and it’ll be wrong again.

    And science is a continuous process. Science is always trying to understand her as she is. But not religion. Religion is stuck on seeing things in only religion’s way. And religion never likes to be corrected.

    Science and religion are incompatable.

  5. give me prof that scientific laws can change!

  6. Hi,

    Mathematics and computer science are not natural sciences, applied sciences (technology) or social sciences.
    So, what kind of sciences are they?

    I found out that they may belong to constructive sciences or formal science but I am not sure.



  7. gahhhh i hate science!

    anyway, we have to find manuplitive and responding variblies for my question. My question is how many of the barn owls prey are herbivores, omnivores, or carnivores. I neeeeeeeed help.

    I’m writing an essay on how literature and science affect the understanding of humanity and society. I’ve got the literature part down pretty well, but I am absolutely stuck on the science part. I have to choose either between natural sciences or human sciences and relate it to reason, but I don’t have any specific examples. Can you give me a few?

    two people (one 80kg and the other 40kg) are standing on ice skates and they push off of each other. Who pushes off with the greatest force? Who experiences the greater acceleration?

  12. It’s purely antecdotal but it feels like the amount of science literacy has gotten worse in recent years. What can we do to reverse that trend? Should we throw money at it? Give incentives to schools that do well in science? Make the standardized tests harder? More scholarships for science majors? Start a new PR campaign that makes science cool? Have the government appoint someone as a Science Ambassador? What do you think would work best?

  13. When a particle suffers a head-on elastic collision with another particle, initially at rest, the
    greatest fraction of kinetic energy is transferred if

    A. the incident particle is initially traveling very fast
    B. the incident particle is traveling very slowly
    C. the incident particle is much more massive than the target particle
    D. the incident particle is much less massive than the target particle
    E. the incident and target particle have the same mass

    the answer is E
    but why?
    thank you

  14. Its what I want to study at university… I did A level Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths and really hated the maths. I got an A in Biology and Chemistry, an A* in Physics and I got a B in maths. D’you think I’ll cope with Physics in university?

    A particular horizontal turntable can be modeled as a uniform disk with a mass of 200 g and a
    radius of 20 cm that rotates without friction about a vertical axis passing through its center. The
    initial angular speed of the turntable is 2.4 rad/s. A ball of clay, with a mass of 80 g, is dropped
    from a height of 35 cm above the turntable. It hits the turntable at a distance of 10 cm from the
    center, and sticks where it hits so that the clay and the turntable rotate together at a new angular
    speed. Assuming the turntable is firmly supported by its axle so it remains horizontal at all times,
    find the final angular speed of the turntable-clay system.

  20. a car stands beside a series of poles 4 m apart. it accelerates from rest at a rate of 2m/s^2 for 4 seconds, maintains its constant velocity for another 4 seconds, and brakes to rest in 2 seconds. how many poles have the car passed?

    can you please show me the solution? thanks

  21. Want to help me out?
    Would be greatly appreciated.

    Here’s all four:

    How does physics serve to improve our understanding of physical systems?

    How do the principles of physics effect your daily life?

    Describe something in nature that has become more compelling because of an understanding of physics principles

    Is it possible to describe the whole natural world (chemical and biological) with a small number of physical principles? If so, how?

    Is physics a redundant science? Do we now have a clear understanding of the interactions between matter and energy on all scales? Is technological application the main thrust of physics research today?

  22. which of the following types of electromagnetic radiation can be used to check metal parts for damage? X-rays, Microwave or infrared radiation?

  23. where can I find useful websites about physics? especially physics that deal with engineering

    Thank you!!

    I have limited science knowledge, currently studying economic in University. I would like to become a dermatologist to help others with their skin problems. Is it too late to start studying science, then apply for med school?

  26. At my school I have many different math and science classes i can take after im done with the ones i need to take. I want to take a math and a science class that will help me better for when im in collage, then veterinarian school. For math, there is, pre-calculus, statistics, trigonometry/analytic geometry(one course), and business math. For science, there is, chemistry, physics, marine science, and anatomy/physiology(one course). Please help thank you!

  27. I’m going to do a project based on what type of glue will work the best on different materials. Can anyone help me figure out what category that would fit in, you know, like Behavioral sciences, physical science, botony, ecology, those types of categories. Please, some help!

    I’m looking at a college and it says you have to have 3 years of lab science. What classes are those? I took earth science last year, and am planning on taking Chemistry, Chemistry II (not sure of the exact name) and physics. Are all of those lab sciences or what?

  29. What are good science fiction books to read for someone who want to start reading them so nothing that complicated so more character based than hard science thanks in advance.

    BQ.1 Are there any good free science fiction books on IBook on the iPad.

  30. How did Science play a role during the Renaissance and why was science another means to disobey the church? Why was it taking a risk to be a scientist during the Renaissance?

    -Protestant Reformation-
    i need help so that i can study for my final which is coming up in less than a week!!

    I hate science, like chemistry etc. But I would’ve thought that I would need to do a biology course for my HSC to get into psychology in university.
    Is that right? If not what type of course will I need to take for science?
    Also I only want to do general psychology, not social or biological etc.
    Ah, @flingebunt I was planning of doing a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, so it’s good to know that it minimizes the science involved.

  32. How employable would someone with a Doctorate in Applied Physics be, in the alternative energy/green technology field?

    What kind of jobs would such a person have?

  33. I teach middle school science and I’m looking for some new ideas and for people to back up some of the projects I already have in mind.

  34. My final project in physics is to demonstrate the physics behind something, and I picked supernovas!
    Except, there’s so much to it and to explain, where should I center the info so it’s not too long?
    Also, is there any way to actually physically demonstrate something similar to a supernova? Obviously i can’t make a supernova on earth, but a relative way to show it.

  35. I want to study more on physics, but i dont know where to get good textbooks on my level. I am a middle schooler. I can comprehend higher than middle school level (probably), so i need some answers.

  36. I have done physics ( masters) but then my track changed and since last 18 years Iam into social sector where physics is of no use. How should I begin. Is there any online guide in Physics wher I refreash myself. I wish to continue and do PhD.
    Can ony one help.

  37. I’m planning to switch from Engineering to Archaeology, and the last thing I need is more physics. :/ So if there’s as much physics in Archaeology as Engineering requires (esp. the same kinds of physics classes), then I’m dropping my plan to major in Archaeology though it is such an interesting subject because I do understand physics, I’m afraid.
