@namehere that's a good question I would hope an actual chemist or chemical engineer would calculate for me, but I'll think about it...

comment Scientists observe the laws of the physics but, Where do they come from?
For the record, I don't think this is a bad question per se, nor that scientists shouldn't give it some thought now and again. It's just that, for better or for worse, physics proper decoupled from metaphysics 250 years ago, and this question certainly belongs in the latter category. Have a look at Philosophy.

Are you thinking of chemical changes (i.e. formation of molecules, as opposed to nuclear transformations), for instance as occurred in the Miller–Urey experiment?

comment Perceiving travel speeds from different view points
@gj255 I worded that confusingly. I mean that even scenery passing by at a full 200 km/h doesn't look to be moving so fast.
