• Is air resistance an unbalanced force in circular motion?

    Imagine you are spinning a string with a stopper attached to it at one end, and weights on the other. I know the tension force of the string, which doubles as the centripetal force, is unbalanced, because it is constantly causing a change in the direction of acceleration, if not the magnitude. However, is air resistance also unbalanced? It is... show more
    Imagine you are spinning a string with a stopper attached to it at one end, and weights on the other. I know the tension force of the string, which doubles as the centripetal force, is unbalanced, because it is constantly causing a change in the direction of acceleration, if not the magnitude. However, is air resistance also unbalanced? It is opposing the motion, but it doesn’t appear to be slowing it down/affecting direction or magnitude of the acceleration, which makes me think it’s balanced. But then with what? Please help.

  • Spanish listening skills?

    How can I improve my listening skills. I’m fine at writing and reading comprehension, but for listening it’s hit or miss. If I don’t know a critical word, my brain just stops on it, and I stop listening to the rest of what’s being said on the tape. How can I get better? General tips are welcome.

    Poison was only 5 minutes, of recommended 15 minutes dry, dig ran out and was in it for 30 seconds. Dog was washed off after waiting 10 minutes and is now eating food and acting normal. But I need to know. Please reference any number with links. Brand was spectracide.

  • Property question?

    Is it possible to buy an empty lot that has electricity, sewer, and water connections? I’ve been looking and have been unable to find one. FYI: I’m looking in the SW Virginia area. Any idea how much it would cost to put these things in?

  • How do Conservatives justify the destruction of the environment?

    My argument is this: Using fossil fuels, a resource we know is limited, extremely harmful to the environment, and is replaceable with renewables. Any jobs lost by removal of fossil fuel jobs can easily be transferred to renewable energy. So why? Also, for the hunting of animals and reduction of National Parks, why? Animals such as wolves are vital... show more
    My argument is this: Using fossil fuels, a resource we know is limited, extremely harmful to the environment, and is replaceable with renewables. Any jobs lost by removal of fossil fuel jobs can easily be transferred to renewable energy. So why? Also, for the hunting of animals and reduction of National Parks, why? Animals such as wolves are vital for keeping a balanced and beautiful ecosystem, and shouldn’t be killed out of fear and ignorance. Also, opening national parks to grazing/forestry simply sacrifices long-term gains for short-term ones, as eco-tourism pays much more for communities than either of these unsustainable practices. Please just explain your argument like a normal person. No name calling.

  • Parenting Question?

    What do you think of a Father who brags about one of his kids as being able to pass any test to his teachers. The teacher then gives the dad’s kid lots of really tough tests over the course of the month, making the kid very stressed. So what do you think about this parent?
