Graduated physics major and math minor from Drexel University. I want to study entanglement and how to use it to do quantum teleportation on a larger scale.

comment Does Kepler's law only apply to planets?
Since all you need is an inverse square central attractive potential between two bodies, then it applies to any two oppositely charged particles as well, because the Coulomb Force is essentially the same form as the Gravitational Force.

Here is a link to the actual paper: I can't find a free version though. :( prl.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v85/i26/p5639_1

comment Why does the shadow of the hairs on my leg seemingly only appear when the leg is moving slowly?
What your referring to probably has to do with reference frames. Although you are not moving, the tree is moving due to the wind being blown. Therefore, there are moments when sunlight directly hits you, and moments when it's indirect, because the tree is blocking the sunlight. When you don't have a bright enough light, you won't be able to make out small thin shadows. Kinds like when your sitting inside a train adjacent to another train. When your train moves vs. the other train makes it look as though the scenario is the same. Something is moving relative to another, in your case, the tree

comment How can the surface of a liquid exist if there are no attracting molecules above it?
The upwards force is provided by Newton's 3rd Law. "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction..."

comment How does rest mass become energy?
Okay, I understand that there is a mathematical cancelling effect. So do you mean that if the canceling isn't perfect, then that's why only a small percentage is converted into energy? When fusion happens, anti-particles are not involved. So, how does these two hydrogen atoms fuse? How do they "cancel" each other out partially?

comment What is in the space between a nucleus of an atom and its electrons?
Also, the person who's asking the question is mentally transitioning between the classical picture to the quantum one. It wouldn't help to blast a whole Tsunami of information in their face.

Chris Gerig, you've got to keep in mind the person who asked the question. Yeah, sure its filled with virtual particles. But the original person who asked the question is gonna get confused by this. Unless you now explain virtual particles too. Please do! So that it adds more depth to the answer.

Anna V. I agree with you. Perhaps Chris Gerig can do this for us. He seems very passionate about how my answer is wrong.
