I write code and I write music. I'm currently studying for a master's in computer science, researching how music can be used to create user interfaces, and writing the music for Takamo Universe, a 4X space MMO.

comment Are the air particles in today's wind on earth (more or less) the same as the air 2/3 billion years ago?
One question you didn't discuss in your answer is whether Earth has gained or lost significant amounts of air in space. Can you please add information about that?

comment Finding maximum speed in a work-energy problem
To be honest, I don't understand how to use conservation of energy to solve the problem. Can you give me the first couple of steps in that part of the solution?

comment Finding maximum speed in a work-energy problem
@Akash I don't know. This problem was given to me in an on-line homework assignment, and it tells me when I'm wrong, but doesn't let me know what answer I should get >_<

comment Finding maximum speed in a work-energy problem
One thing that I just noticed is that 148.3 m is the distance up from the bottom of the drop, not down from the top of the drop. Correcting for this mistake doesn't get me the right answer, though, so my approach is still wrong...

comment Why isn't average speed equal to displacement over time?
+1 for answering the question in a way that's relatively easy to understand, considering that the OP is an introductory student.

comment How can I understand work conceptually?
This website has an excellent definition of work: hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/hframe.html This chart from the same website explains how work relates to other mechanical concepts: hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/hframe.html
