Re: Calculating the height of tides on a different planet

Nicias, the formula you used was (a/b)/\f * (c/d) = e. This is what I have figured out so far.

b = orbital distance
c = mass of M/mass of A * 100
d = diameter of planet A / 10,000
e = height of tides

What is 'a' and 'f'? Thank you.

Re: Speculative biology -- the affairs of dragons

I have an idea on how a dragon could 'breath fire'. Imagine a shepherd and his flock are confronted by a dragon. The dragon opens its mouth and a large, yellow substance is projected. The shepherd runs toward town, but not before the his forearm is touched by the yellow projectile. The substance cau...

In a society that protects Free Speak protests, the media, and political criticism are protected. On the other hand, slander, abuse, and ta...

Re: EMDrive and other reactionless propulsion claims

This proves that even if a propulsion system cannot create a net force, it can still do work (it moved a mass, so work must have been done). Has it really? Then tell me: What's the center of gravity of the whole system (including cannonball) before and after the firing? All you're really doing is s...

I have been reading and I have to admit, 90% of this stuff is going right over my head. It is simply to complex for me, but I am going to ask my question anyway. Even if a propulsion system has no net acceleration, the system can still move. I know this because of a simple thought experiment: Put a ...

Lightning: Electric potential vs thermal

According to the National Weather Service ( http://www.lightningsafety.noaa.gov/temperature.htm ), lightning can heat the air it passes through to 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit. I thought than only a fraction of energy in a electrical current is released as thermal energy. It follows then that the elect...
