I am just a man who has an insatiable desire for knowledge.

"For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]."~ Philippians 4:8

comment Does Earth's Rotation Affect Its Shape?
@Serg And so the earth elongates about the equator for the same reason that arms start move away from my sides when I rotate around? If this is true, is there some way to describe this in term of newton's laws, or something of the like?

comment Elastic Collision And Momentum
@dmckee I believe that is what I was doing, in my other post. I just don't know if I am solving the collision correctly; and I wasn't sure if I could combine non-vector expressions into a vector equation.

Sorry, I did edit my post, and I don't have the capabilities, yet, to offer a bounty. This took me so long to type.

So, are you saying that kinetic energy is represented by the variable p?

How do you derive something like this $p^2/2m$

comment Elastic Collision And Momentum
I don't understand how you get this part: $p^2/2m_1=m_1gh\rightarrow p=m_1\sqrt{2gh}$

I tried to solve the problem, but was unable to. I edited my post to reflect my attempt, I'd really appreciate it if you could take a gander. Thank you!

So, would it be true, that for the block-earth system--the block I belief the person was referring to was $m_1$--,mechanical energy wouldn't be conserved, since the there is a transfer of kinetic energy from $m_1$ to $m_2$, meaning energy left the block-earth system?
