You can't believe the number of people who fill this box with crap, just to get the Auto-biographer badge. Me included ;)

Oh, I didn't introduce my self: Here are 8 words that don't describe me.

What? That wasn't descriptive enough? Well, here are some words that might actually help: a self-confessed techno-geek in the making, I adore:-

  • The Internet
  • Google+ xD
  • Open Source
  • StackOverflow
  • All things geeky

in that order. Here are some other links that might help:-


Oh, and don't forget to check out my blog, The Rantosphere. The title is meant to be a portmanteau of Ranting and The Blogosphere.

But don't worry, most of my posts are actually interesting, if a bit on the incoherent rambling side. I blog about:-

  • Tech
  • Math
  • Me, occasionally
  • The internet

and anything else awesome enough to talk about.

You can also view my blog on WordPress, if you like. Both are updated at the same time, courtesy of IFTTT, but Blogger remains my favorite :)

revised How was Avogadro's number first determined?
Fixed grammar and sentence structure; Changed the question in the brackets to a doubt that would actually make sense (see <http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/13757/how-was-avogadros-number-first-determined#comment71207_13757>);

comment How was Avogadro's number first determined?
@SteveB Exactly! I think what the OP meant was "How could we know the charge of a single electron just by knowing the charge of a mole of electrons without knowing the ratio of the number of particles in both?". Presumably, he didn't know that that was exactly how Avogadro's number was first discovered.

comment Is there a proof of existence of time?
@babou The thermodynamic, physcological and cosmological arrows of time seem to flow in tha same direction, but then in another model there's this concept of 'imaginary' time in which time and the 3 space dimensions exist in Euclidean space-time (i.e., there's nothing fundamentally different between all the 4 dimensions). In that model, there is no preferred direction of low. In the common model, there is.

Hmmm... the shoulder ability would surely be of no consequence at such high speeds. It's definitely the lighter rifle then...

10x for the analogy!

No, that was not the source of my confusion. I'd mistakenly read the statement as "I disagree with the fact that the statement was being attributed to your teacher" and not as " I disagree with the statement that you had attributed to your teacher". Sorry...

+1'd, 10x for the answer. I understood the answer and it was quite detailed :) But I didn't quite get your second statement: "I disagree with the statement attributed to your teacher".

@Nathaniel 10x for that, +1'd. I think I'll accept my answer instead which arranges the information to answer my doubts. But SE won't let me do that until another 2 days...

@PeterShor Obviously; but the question mentions both are of the same 'size', so that's probably not how the balls are.

10x everyone for explaining all of this for me. I just want to know, should I write an answer and accept it now that all my confusion has been cleared?

@Nathaniel Correct me if I'm incorrect: I think Akash's answer is the same as my teachers and I debunked it in a comment. Is that comment valid? Does it apply to my teacher's argument?

comment Velocity of 2 balls with different masses on a moving train after the train brakes
You are basically saying $ a_{iron} = a_{rubber} $ and $ M_{iron} > M_{rubber} $, so therefore $ F_{iron} > F_{rubber} $ which is correct. But then you also say that the iron ball will move a longer distance which implies that both the balls will eventually come to a stop while simultaneously claiming to ignore air resistance and friction. So tell me, which force eventually stops the balls (as they'll keep moving at the constant speed otherwise as dictated by one of Newton's Laws of Motion).
