comment Can we divide two vectors?
@JerrySchirmer oops, right. You can only determine the component that's normal to $\vec{B}$. Thanks!

I see nothing wrong with your answer.

comment Why not shoot a marble sized spacecraft at the moon?
@Draksis Thanks, I will clarify it. While inertia is not a true force it is sometimes (fluid dynamics useful to refer to it as a force. For example Navier-Stokes equation can be seen as balance of inertial force and pressure, viscuous and other body forces.

@Draksis The volume decreases faster than area so surface forces get relatively bigger compared to volume forces like gravity and inertia.

comment Was the mass of the universe the same when it first began as it is now?
Mass could be understood as the rest mass of all the matter which can change from day to day. I bet you meant the total energy (including mass)...?

comment How does conservation work in wormholes?
"spacetime curvature involved in a wormhole is qualitatively no different to the spacetime curvature around, for example, the Sun" So there is actually no way to distinguish where is the inside and where is the "normal" spacetime? And I could exchange energies and momenta with that matter at any time during the travel while only conserving the totals, right?

comment Mass or no mass?
I believe this is the canonical article: arxiv.org/ftp/cond-mat/papers/0509/0509330.pdf It seems unlikely that this speed will be irrelevant of frame...

comment Mass or no mass?
"Some systems have $m=0$, and these systems always have momentum relative to your inertial frame. Indeed, you will always observe their relative velocity to be precisely $c$." Is it true about the massless electrons of graphene?

comment Are orbiting planets an example of perpetual motion?
@LuboŇ°Motl, but the planets are accelerated all the time, aren't they?

comment Total current of two sources in series?
@dmckee, as far as Kirchhoff's theory goes, I agree to Will's answer. But maybe you can demonstrate application you had in mind?

comment Total current of two sources in series?
Yes, that's about as much as I can get out from those equations myself.

@Will that is all the information he supplied.

comment What is the effect of humidity in temperature?
@user61001, yes, apparent one. If humidity is higher, it seems hotter to people compared to medium or low humidity.

comment What is the effect of humidity in temperature?
"Tashkent" is synonymous for "very hot". What's with the outside? I don't really understand the new question.

comment can be exist the negative mass?
Physics become interesting when you consider exotic and scifi-like things. Even Newton's second law becomes funny if you consider negative masses :)

comment can be exist the negative mass?
And negative masses would attract each other, but repel positive masses, right? That's why they are somewhere far :)

comment Problem with a rotating frame of reference on the South pole
@Althalos, there is no centrifugal acceleration on the axis. In which direction could it be there? Your formula is correct, but the $R$ is distance from axis of rotation which is $0$ in your case.

I think it's just the torque that's stored in the thread...

comment Problem with a rotating frame of reference on the South pole
Rotating frame in which train is going straight (as says in the exercise). Yes, $\Omega$ is. Try $\tan(\theta)=F_c/F_a = a/g$. Also $\tan(\theta) = \sin(\theta) = \theta$ (in radians) should for work such a small angle.

comment Why does the fundamental mode of a recorder disappear when you blow harder?
@Georg, a few years late answer, bet I wanted to add that the higher mode does not slowly overtake. It's a sudden shift of pitch.
