Goddamn computer won't let me copy paste pictures, but this is about par with my math skills, just funnier answers.

Just working out the spring one...

They are tricky aren't they, can't give a straight question they have to make it a curved frictionless slope to confuse things.

You can't figure that one out. There's an elephant in the way!

It's frictionless, the elephant will slide with the box. Duh.

This made me laugh more than I've done in ages. My fiancée came in and wondered if I was crying...

It's absolutely brilliant. That kid has a future.

I thought the 'find x' one was brilliant.

I only got the 'expand' one after a few reads :D

Cracked up at the "find x" one. Have to go read the rest now. :lol:

Is the ramp in a vacuum? If not how do we account for wind resistance, and how will the elephant breathe?

and if there is air, those ears are going to act like a drag chute

would you bet your balls on it?

Elephant/box collisions are inelastic, everyone knows that.

What are you, an engineer? If it's frictionless, it's frictionless.

MDA
10-04-2007, 10:47:08
the interaction between the ramp and elephant, or everything? :p

Funko

Everything.

drag is not friction

would you call a drag queen a friction queen?

Tizzy

Depends what they were doing at the time

Drekkus

there's a fraction to much friction

MDA
11-04-2007, 10:35:26
drag is kinetic friction, no?

am I remembering all this wrong? guess its been about 17 years since I've had physics

Edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drag_%28physics%29

I wasn't totally right, but not totally wrong either. :beer: I'm calling it a minor victory for my memory.

MoSe

let's call it a minor draw
:p
the intertial forces involved in putting in motion the displaced fluid particles have little to do with friction
otoh...
hhhmmm....
Ram Pressure...

In this level of physics question no friction includes air resistance.

Vive l'air resitance!
