Learning formulas faster
July 27, 2014
hw can i learn formula fasteru
Paul - Nigeria (25168)
One of the best ways to learn and remember formulas is to keep a notebook where you write down the ones you need to remember, along with a short statement of what it stands for.
For example: "F = ma stands for force equals mass time acceleration."
I hope that helps.
Differences between chemistry and physics
July 26, 2014
What is the differences between chemistry and physics?
samuel haruna - Nigeria (25158)
Physics concerns the properties of matter and forces. Chemistry concerns how atoms and molecules combine and the properties of the combinations.
How can one be a successful person in life?
July 22, 2014
How can one be a successifull person in life?
lazarus - Zambia (25135)
Some people view success as making a lot of money. Others view it as achieving their goals and being happy about it. Still others want to be a leader in their field.
Define what you love to do and what you'd like to achieve. Work on that with enthusiasm. Enjoy the journey, and you will be successful in your life.
Best wishes for your success.
Force of dropping a wieght
July 20, 2014
What is the force of twenty pound weight dropped on a floor.
- Canada (25130)
If an object weighs 20 pounds, that is the force it applies to the floor.
Also, F = mg = 20 pounds.
However, dropping from a height and then suddenly stopping will result in a greater force, depending on the height and the elasticity.
Exponent of large number
July 20, 2014
Is there a simple solution to know the ans of any digit raise to power as-
Without multiplying it 984 times
Sushant - India (25131)
Both of those numbers would be extremely large. I'm not sure of the point in getting such an answer.
Usually, you can get the answer by using the calculator that comes with your computer. Change the View to Scientific and then enter the first number--like 9--and use the x^y button to enter 984 and get your answer.
Unfortunately, with such a large number, you would an answer in the exponential form, something like 9.43255...e+938.
Writing article on bullying
July 19, 2014
Hello, I am Claudia Bowman a year 13 student at Tauhara College in Taupo, New Zealand. I am very passionate about standing up for those who get bullied and have seen the damage it has done to many people over the years. I have read through your webpage 'School for Champions' it has all caught my attention. I am doing a feature article for Media Studies on bullying and the huge effects it has on people especially students at school (Mainly High Schools). I was wondering if I could interview you via email, phone or Skype as i have a few questions that Id like to ask and add to my article I am writing. I am looking forward to receiving your reply.
Claudia - New Zealand (25126)
It is great that you are writing an article on the effects of bullying. I'd be glad to answer your questions. The best way probably would be via email.

Wants to use results in dissertation
July 16, 2014
Hello, I am currently working on developing a survey for students with learning difficulties. I am doing this as part of my dissertation in Speech-Language Pathology. I am asking your permission to use modified versions of some of your questions for my research. Also did you assess the survey itself?
Brian - USA (25115)
Feel free to use modified versions of our questions in your dissertation. I would appreciate it if you would cite the source.
I really haven't done a scientific analysis of the results.
Best wishes for success in your dissertation.
Liked article on revenue models
July 15, 2014
I was on the hunt for some ecommerce business model articles to cite in a blog post I am writing about dropshipping.
I really like the article that you wrote about Revenue models.
I actually just put together an infographic on what ecommerce businesses are worth and how to value them.
Thought it might be down your alley about what ecommerce businesses are worth today.
Wondering if you'd like to check it out? :)
Paul - Australia (25114)
I'm glad you liked the article on revenue models. It would be interesting to see the results of your research.
Where do AC electrons go?
July 14, 2014
The diagram (above) showing how AC moves through transmission wires is missing.
If the electrons move back and forth how do they go anywhere?
Drew - Australia (25111)
The animation showing how AC electrons move back and forth in a wire requires a Flash plugin. I plan to have a new animation without requiring Flash soon.
While in a DC circuit, electrons enter the battery or DC generator at the (+) terminate and exits at the (-) terminal. But in an AC circuit, the electrons simply move back and forth in the wire, starting at the AC generator. The motion of the electrons--and their electromagnetic waves--then power any devices in a circuit.
What causes frictional force?
July 14, 2014
my question is regarding frictional force.
what cause frictional force between two surface in contact?
is it adhesive force or interlocking between hills and dales on rough surface?
mohan - India (25112)
The resistance due to friction is caused by electrical adhesion of the surfaces, as well as surface roughness, and in same cases deformations on a surface. See: Causes of Friction for more information.
How to find sulfur dioxide?
July 13, 2014
pls my question sir how can we find sulphideoxide in volcanic.? pls
aminu m - Nigeria (25109)
Sulfur dioxide has a strong odor similar to rotten eggs. There are detectors available to detect slight amounts of sulfur dioxide in the air. These can be used to tell how much is in the air near a volcano.
Note that sulfur dioxide is different than hydrogen sulfide, although both have a strong odor.
Has video of spirit walking in her bedroom
July 13, 2014
my name is judy, if theres any question of a live spirit I have one on video walking from my wall into the bedroom, and no it isn't a person, its a spirit and you can see that, ive seen spirits before, not often, I also predicted a couple of things that came true, Im not sure if it is a gift or a curse but I know im different than others, I saw a spirit, a beautiful woman walking past one of the blds that I live near , I asked if anyone was killed there, I was told a woman was killed by a man that was infacuated with her, he killed her when her husband went to work, I described her and they said that's what she looked like,i feel alone with this and scared to tell anyone , that they would think I was crazy, so I keep it to myself, I saw your sight and saw I could right a message , I had the video of the spirit freeze framed and enhanced
judy - USA (25110)
Thanks for sharing your experiences. Many people can see into the future and past, but not too many have actually communicated with spirits. It probably is a similar talent or sense.
People who have not had such experiences might say others were crazy. Others just keep to themselves.
I don't know what reaction you would get if you put your video on YouTube.
