hey guys, i think this deserves to go on sci because pol and b are fuckinn noobs and it also involes conceptuallization of nodal maps and heirarchy systems/ coding a fecking awxom33 social netw00rk!! but i digress. so my question is,what would the success be of an arbitrarily complexly developed social network, app etc, that has specific applications towards community outreach and action? what would fare better in the case where the website has government integration, or when it is non government affiliated?

Hey /sci/, how does this maths work out? I keep thinking that the 'P' term should be on the bottom of the equation beside RT^2, why is it ontop? Cheers

I don't know if this is exactly /sci/ material, buuut... I was wondering how you guys would recommend studying for the MCAT? I pulled a 30 last year, I'm looking to get a 33-35 for a solid shot at an interview... quite a leap, but I'm willing to do whatever it takes. Right now I'm split between using the Kaplan books (which I used last year) or trying out Examkrackers... or maybe even doing both. Does /sci/ have any recommendations?

A /b/tard ventures over to /sci/ in a desperate search for smartfags. help. pls. The minimum amount of energy needed to eject an electron from a clean aluminium surface is 6.72 x 10^-19 Joules. What is the maximum wavelength of incident light that can be shone on this aluminium surface in order to eject electrons?

Say our universe is a simulation. Does that mean that things in our world that appears to be conscious, actually is, the same way we are but one level below?

Fuel Economy

13 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Fuel Economy.png]
Hey sci, Can we discuss the history of fuel economy in cars and trucks? Refer to the pic. In response to the oil crisis in the early 1970s, Congress passed some standards that called for doubling the passenger-vehicle efficiency within 10 years in 1975. This can be seen in the figure with car fuel economies going from about 13 to around 26 mpg. But then from about 1985 to 2005, fuel economy remained constant. I'm finding it hard to believe that for 20 years, no progress was made on technology that could make cars more energy efficient. I'm wondering why you think this is the case. Here's a couple of my ideas. Please discuss them and also present your own. 1) Fuel prices remained relatively low so there was not much pressure to increase fuel economy. 2) Energy companies subsidize research of the auto industry. As such, if some company comes out with a 50 mpg car, for example, they cease to fund this company, making it harder for this company to compete. This may seem like a 'conspiracy,' but really it's just pure economics. Why would an energy company spend money to see more efficient vehicles? This would result in them selling less fuel. 3) Car companies intentionally keep fuel economies low for sake of ensuring their long term success. Ex: Say an alternate fuel vehicle hits the market with lower fuel prices. Car companies can then compete by improving their fuel economies, effectively making their fuel prices lower and out competing the new technologies/new fuels. Do you think any of these theories hold water? Source for pic: http://www.pewenvironment.org/uploadedFiles/PEG/Publications/Fact_Sheet/History%20of%20Fuel%20Economy%20Clean%20Energy%20Factsheet.pdf

Something I've been wondering /sci/ In quantum mechanics you only ever hear about the act of measuring some property, but is it possible to do a partial observation? For example, instead of "measuring it's position" can you check to see if the particle is in a certain region? Obviously if it is there then the outcome is the same, but what happens to the state of the particle of it is found to NOT be in that region? I would imagine that all other probabilities would increase the more you rule out certain possibilities. Or is it just not possible? Although I can't imagine why it wouldn't be.

How many ways are there to distribute 15 objects among five distinct assembly lines when the first two lines must get at least two objects, the third and the fifth line should get a non-zero but even number of objects and the fourth line gets any number of objects?

Education system and validation

50 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Philosoraptor.jpg]
(1 of 2) Here are some of my thoughts on the education system and how it rewards certain types of students. Please tell me what you think. Tl;dr: I dont think it is good for test scores and grades to be rewarded because it makes recipients validate themselves. And, those who dont get the high test scores and grades feel ashamed and inferior. The students who don't recieve high grades/test scores are no less important than the students who do. The high scoring student is just as human (and potentially just as useful to society) as a low scoring student. **** I think it is important to ask ourselves why we reward these high test scores. Is it to motivate other students to do better? This would imply that success in the world is directly determined by how well you do in school. They may be related, but I do not believe that- beyond doubt - it can be proven that high scores and high grades cause success in society. One can make an important contribution to society without having high test scores. Often, the opposite is what happens. In order to rationalize their apparent inferiority, students will begin to tell themselves that school, and more importantly inquiry and knowledge, are not important.

why seconal is secobarbital sodium or quinalbarbitone sodium. i mean, the molecule is the secobarbital and the sodium part is that when you drink it you are drinking it in salt form, how this works?

Where can I go to get cheap lab supplies? I've been looking on ebay so far. Also, if you have a home lab please post some pics and tell us about any projects you've been working on. The pic is my measly lab. Hopefully it will be better this summer

Creatures like Weeping Angels

Out there in the galaxy if not the universe. Is it possible that evolution can conceive a creature similar to or like the weeping angels from the British sci-fi show Doctor Who? I honestly do not see how it is possible for an alien lifeform to suddenly become stone whenever it is aware that one is looking at them.

If you shoot an arrow up while standing on the moon, would the heavy end then face downwards towards the moon on the way down? I was thinking that the acceleration should be the same on every part of the arrow, since there is no wind, so why would the heavy end start accelerating towards the moon first? Also explanation on why or why not is appreciated.
