I like everything. Or just about. Eh, pretty close to that. That is all.

comment Composition of kinetic energy
Are you saying that energy is a just a number? If that's the case, then there would be absolutely no physical counterpart whatsoever. How would scientists even theorize the existence of an EM wave?

comment Composition of kinetic energy
@DavidH How can you have nothing (kinetic energy) made out of something? It seems like a ridiculous notion to me. If indeed kinetic energy is 'nothing', then it wouldn't be important enough to mention. I believe there must be some sort of substance, or at least energy in the vague sense, to constitute its existence.

@Qmechanic This question is far from being a "duplicate" of the question you linked it to; it would make more sense to say that it could be answered by it. It is a very interesting topic, I must say, but the answer I was looking for was more concrete, (like if kinetic energy is made of subatomic particles or not).

comment What justifies dimensional analysis?
Units such as velocity (defined as meters per second) are compound concepts. They are not fundamental because they can be broken down into other concepts (distance / time).

comment Proof that the ground pushes you up
I originally took it off because I thought the tag "everyday-life" would never be a useful tag. It doesn't matter either way though, but I thought that you might like to know why I did it.

comment Proof that the ground pushes you up
Not to be uncivil, but isn't it a little extreme to rate this question down? Is it somehow invalid? Does it fall below the "de facto" mark even if it is a "de jure" question (as in, is it too low-level)? So I am new to physics. It doesn't magically make my question poor. I would like an explanation.

Yes. (Now that I know that the ground really is pushing me up) I am not asking if, I am asking why.

revised Write a parabolic equation in kinematics
The homework tag is deprecated (DO NOT USE IT). It is demeaning and in current debate - this is not inspired by homework whatsoever.
