I have a very large movable trash container, and I have mounted four scales, one on each corner. How do I get the total weight of the entire container? Is it simply a sum of the four weights, or is it ...
When a rubber ball bounces, it first accelerates in the positive direction (downward) then it bounces (hits the floor) .The velocity then becomes negative as the ball declerates while travelling ...
I learned that as the earth rotates about its axis, the bodies on the earth also follow a circular path. In most books I read, they give the example of a person standing on a weight balance at the ...
How can i check and calculate if a certain vacuum pump can hold an object that weights X kg? By "hold" I mean not let that object fall to the floor due to gravity
My working knowledge of physics is the level of a 7th grader (if I'm lucky) so please excuse this probably totally stupid question, but my curiosity is greater than my shame: Would it be possible to ...
I frequent a blog from a British psychologist, and every Friday he likes to pose an interesting puzzle or riddle. The Monday after that he posts the answer. They're good fun, and IANAP but this week's ...
I don't want to go to science world to find out because it would be a long round-trip. I understand that acceleration/deceleration would effect the weight and I can also imagine that someone at ...
The gravitational force on your body, called your weight, pushes you down onto the floor. $$W=mg$$ So, what is the weight equation through general relativity?
