I am an engineering student who is VERY interested in programming. I have been coding for 6 years now in HTML, Javascript, Flash, Flex / AIR, ColdFusion, PHP, MS SQL and MySQL

I recently started putting my programming skills to use on vWorker.com (now Freelancer.com) quite some time ago. I have now stopped, to be a more or less full-time Masters student!

Check out my profile on vWorker

While I was programming on vWorker jobs, I found that the Stack Exchange network is really a great place to share knowledge, so here I am, hoping to help someone who needs it :)

Here's my AS3 library for SQLite on GitHub

My interests include aerodynamics, aeromodelling, programming, physics in general.

comment Why does a cup with 100 g water float when placed on another cup with 50 g of water?
Are you sure it floats? This is really interesting if true.

comment Why do objects fall at the same acceleration?
"Acceleration due to gravity has a constant value at points that are an equal distance away from the center of mass of the Earth" is a perfectly correct sentence. I have no idea what you're trying to prove by changing "constant" to "same" and regurgitate what I said. That, in my book, is immature. As for your answer - it seems to be a long-winded, roundabout answer to something that is really a simple explanation. There is also nothing you have added to the discussion by posting your answer. I hope this clears things up for you.

No place for immaturity on this site, my friend.

Additionally, this answer doesn't add anything to my answer, so I don't see what you were getting at by posting it.

comment Why do objects fall at the same acceleration?
"Acceleration due to gravity has constant value at different points in space" False. Acceleration due to gravity has a constant value at points that are an equal distance away from the center of mass of the Earth. For small heights above the Earth's surface, we ignore the effect of the extra height because it is too small to make an appreciable distance.

comment Why do objects fall at the same acceleration?
There is no difference in the acceleration of two objects of identical shape but different masses. The difference you observe between a feather and a golf ball, for example, is not because of gravity - it's because of the shape and the air resistance the body encounters. If air resistance is not a contributing factor, both bodies hit the ground at EXACTLY the same instant

Space definitely doesn't have crap shooting around.
