To All members of the underground!
I would like to hold an official competition between the members of Gameface101.
On this thread every week I will post a general logic/ knowledge question.
For one week all participants will have a chance to discus and argue their opinions bellow.
Once you have made up you'r mind post "ANSWER: 'place final answer here.'" (please be specific)
The people with the correct answer will receive credit. For actively discussing you will also receive credit. You could always use Google but that ruins the fun Smile
At the end of the week I will post the answer, and a tally of everyone's credit rating.
Every three weeks I will send the user with the most credit $10AU worth of game credit
(RP, or any other such game credits)

If you have any Questions please ask. Also please vote in the poll as to whether I should run this competition? If you have suggestions post below Smile

!!!Post Segment of FAME!!!
(Past Competition winners that have shown an acute and up to date knowledge of science trivia)

-MotionM
-Mr_wiggles

Last Tri-week comp WINNER: MotionM
This Tri-week comp winner: Mr_wiggles

Tally:

MotionM: 0cr
Mr wiggles: 1cr For Discussion
BluE: 3cr Best Answer
GameFace: 2cr Correct Answer
BlizzardVet: 0cr

Announcement
Unfortunately the prize money scheme will have to stop for some time.

Question for This Week:
Why do two objects with the same shape and size but different weight hit the ground at the same time if dropped from the same height? An example would be dropping two different weighted bowling balls from 5 metres.

!!!This will be edited every week with the new question a tally of your CR!!!

On Gameface nobody can hear you scream.

That function is still in development.

higher... peroid
mr_wiggles Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 8/5/2012, 4:47 pm
@Onesimus- you should make the question show up in the first post so we don't have to keep flipping threw pages to look at it. Smile

I say that when your approaching the object the sound frequencies get lower, and when you pass the object, they get higher. Not sure why, but just seems like that might be the right answer. :p
Onesimus Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 14/5/2012, 3:39 am
Guys sorry for the late post:

Question and tally for this week will be edited into the original post as suggested by wiggles. I am hoping this will make it more convenient.

Answer: The sound frequencies would be more frequent when running toward the object and lower when running from the object. Because you are either running into the sound wave or away from it making it higher or lower comparing to a stand still position.

mr_wiggles Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 14/5/2012, 8:04 am
because they are just with in the gravitational pull of earth, and the forces of gravity are so minute that they don't feel them.
MotionM Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 14/5/2012, 8:10 am
"Why are astronaut's weightless in space when in orbit around the earth?"

There is no gravitational force in space unless there would be a random spot of gravitation in space or on a planet.
G@MeF@Ce Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 14/5/2012, 11:41 am
@astronauts - they actually still have weight, it’s just that they are "free fallling" due to the distance from the earth’s mass, the gravitational force is not as strong.
Onesimus Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 15/5/2012, 4:10 am
@ wiggles you say its so minute (gravitational pull) then how come the moon stays in orbit? It is far further away than the close to earth orbit that the astronauts are in. Have a think Smile
BluE Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 15/5/2012, 4:58 am
The astronauts are still in orbit of earth, just there isn't anything holding them down so they float around and sh!t.
So...there is gravity, just nothing that...uh...
mr_wiggles Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 15/5/2012, 4:25 pm
its strong enough to keep things in orbit but minute enough that it isn't felt.
BluE Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 15/5/2012, 5:52 pm
Does it count as cheating if we research it?
BliZZvET Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 16/5/2012, 12:50 am
They are just falling around earth at the same speed the space ship is, because of gravity, that is why it gives the apparent look that they are weightless when orbiting earth. Its not because of some stupid guess like "Because there is vacuum in space they aren't affected by gravity" or something like that, because a vacuum is simply just the absence of air, not the absence of gravity because gravity is a force. There are also a ton of explanations and reasons why we don't just float around but that is the easiest explanation.
Onesimus Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 16/5/2012, 2:57 am
@ Blue there are no rules regarding searching up the question however it takes away the fun and the challenge.
Onesimus Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 18/5/2012, 8:01 am
Answer: Astronauts are always falling which is why they seem to be weightless, this is because they are falling to the earth, then they gain enough speed to resist the pulling force and distance them from earth, at what stage they are once again pulled toward the earth, repeating the process. If you have any questions post below.
mr_wiggles Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 18/5/2012, 4:18 pm
so basically they are falling but that falling is what drives them in the circular motion around the planet?
mr_wiggles Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 18/5/2012, 4:21 pm
that question reminds me of the multiverse theory, that given the odds of the big bang to happen is rare, but say there is a large number of universes with the same odds of creating a big bang it would be bound to happen eventually.

Unfortunately the prize money scheme will have to stop for some time, I currently don't have a job or any other consistent form of profit so yeah, sorry guys. Of you loose interest in this competition I will totally understand.




Question: The sun gets its energy from fusion, breaking down atoms and converting them into hydrogen to burn as fuel.
BluE Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 28/5/2012, 5:24 pm
@wiggles; Daniel Pink?
I watched that in G&T class *puts on glasses*.

Also, the sun doesn't make things into hydrogen. It gets hydrogen (4) and make it into 1 helium atom in the process of burning and making energy. The helium will eventually cause the sun to form a red giant because it is less dense
G@MeF@Ce Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 29/5/2012, 4:12 am
E = mc2 geek

nuclear fusion baby ~

gravitational pulling of protons smashing into hydrogen then helium nuclei releasing that positron/neutrino shine ^,^

sunny










Onesimus Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 3/6/2012, 5:37 am
Answer: The sun consists of protons, usually the protons would repel from each other because their magnetic fields are of the same charge. However in the sun the protons travel so fast they cant avoid collision. When protons due collide they lose mass, this mass is converted to energy. 4300, 000, 000kg of mass is lost every second by the sun through this process. the famous equation for this process is E=MC(squared) which stands for Energy=Mass*Constant(squared) the constant of the universe is the speed of light.
BluE Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 3/6/2012, 6:00 am
....no...the sun is made of hydrogen that converts to helium...I know this is right cos I attended a lecture by a physicist..
mr_wiggles Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 3/6/2012, 8:03 pm
Answer: Objects reach terminal velocity which is the max speed you can fall at. With out the other variables like surface area for wind drag all you have is the pull of gravity on the object.
BluE Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 3/6/2012, 8:47 pm
Terminal velocity is different for different things. EG, an ant can't die from a fall because it's terminal velocity is so low.

yes however the part of that process that produces' energy is the two protons joining and releasing mass that is converted to energy.
G@MeF@Ce Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 18/7/2012, 2:30 am
yo 1z - can we continue to play? 0;-)
Onesimus Re: The Apple Tree Competition on 19/7/2012, 5:30 am
YES! Sorry for my absence, I should have kept the comp. going through out my holidays.

SO the comp. will start up on Friday Australian time. thus giving me enough time to plan out some mind boggling questions for you guys!!!
