It is not that the interviewee experiences a longer delay - but that you see the whole scene delayed by the same amount. Delays are caused by a number of factors: sound is conveyed in packets that are digitized, compressed, and converted at various points along their path: at each point they experience at least "one packet's worth" of delays (can't send ...

So what I understand from reading the other answers is this: Here on earth: 1 Kilogram of lettuce: Mass-> 1 Kg, Weight-> 1 Kgf In another hypotetical planet where gravity is half of earth: 1 Kilogram of lettuce: Mass-> 1 Kg, Weight-> 0.5 Kgf Since there is no practical easy way to measure mass, in everyday life we use the kilogram as a unit of weight ...

Without knowing a lot more about the details of the entire system, we can't say exactly what the difference will be between the AC1+AC2 case and the AC2-only case. However, there are a few things we can work out from simple energy balance. In the following, I'm considering the air as an ideal gas with a fixed specific heat capacity at constant pressure ...

To simplify we can treat the wire as perfectly taut. This allows the rope to exert a force on the tight rope walker (TRW) Also for simplicity imagine the TRW as a solid body with a solid body pole that can be rotated about an axis parallel to the rope at a fixed location relative to the TRW. Now, if the TRW is tipping clockwise their center of gravity ...

The Slip% is defined by SAE as $S=\frac{\omega\,R-V}{V}$ Where $\omega$ is the wheel rotation in radians per time, $R$ is the effective tire Radius, and $V$ road velocity of the vehicle. For example if my wheel has a radius of 1 ft and my instantaneous rotating speed is 50 radians per second, then my expected velocity would be 50 ft per second. If at the ...

It is more often the case that the broadcast is delayed a few seconds so that if the phone-in participant says something that the show's producers don't like it can be easily censored.
