I've always played that you would win that point. Assuming it does actually clear the net without touching it, that is. In regular tennis, that is a valid way to win the point (even if it does touch the net). On outdoor courts when wind is a factor, it's actually reasonably possible to do. I manage...

Just moved into my new apartment for grad school. Holy crap I like this place. It's light and airy and full of windows (even a window in the shower!) and for the first time in my life I have a fridge to myself.

Also I got grad school funding, so I can actually afford the apartment now.

The problem is that convection is incredibly tricky, and thus h is highly variable. If you're going to have a situation with known air velocity across the sample it'...
