# A science test. . .

I'd like to see what grade theists manage on this test (no cheating!). Here's the result of the test I took while drunk:

#2I got 76%, that's a c.

#3I'm so proud of myself (expresses sarcasm)

"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.

#4I got an 88. That's not too embarrassing considering how long its been since I took 8th grade science.

#7For you guys that got 88s, what did you miss? You said meteors?

I'm not sure about the second one you might have missed. What was it?

YesIsn't this wrong? There is always a chance of mutation.

In hindsight, the mammalian respiration answer was obvious to me, I would've gotten that one had I slowed down. I forgot the terminology differences on the meteor question, so I was genuinely wrong on that question. The product of bacteria question had me stumped, though that was less of a question about scientific understanding than it was about pointless trivia. (In 8th grade science, I remember learning about the functioning of cells, taxonomic classification, examining samples under microscopes, the big bang, and so on but I don't recall the class ever covering the fascinating subject of yogurt )

#16Yeah. The mushroom one was a poorly worded question. Or, alternatively, it could be a question from a Creationist textbook.

#17Not sure which ones I got wrong since it didn't tell you.

#18Grr. My brain won't compute maths. I don't understand the physics (Helicopter / falling rock) question:

...How am I supposed to figure-out the final velocity? It doesn't mention how high up the helicopter is. If the chopper is only a meter above the water, and the stone takes 10 seconds to hit it, tha'ts going to have a very different speed than if the chopper is 100 meters above the water.

EDIT: Besides that, the final velocity will undoubtedly be zero, since 'final velocity' suggests the measurement taken after the rock has finished falling.

You actually would get burned on tests if you knew too much, because you had to second guess stupid questions like this one because it's multiple choice. If it was written answer you could explain it properly and the marker would be able to tell you know the answer.

#23But that only demonstrates what the terminal velocity for the rock would be. If the rock didn't have sufficient distance to travel, it wouldn't reach terminal velocity.

#24I got 76%

Fucking geology/biology questions.

Oh BTW, that's not how you calculate terminal velocity Kev.

#25Kevin R Brown wrote:That equation has nothing to do with terminal velocity, which is only factored in when you consider air resistance. You don't need to know the distance traveled with what they give you in the question. If you wanted, you could solve for distance as well.

Acceleration = Change in Velocity / Time

Change in Velocity (delta V) = Final Velocity (Vf) - Original Velocity (Vi)

A = (Vf - Vi) / T

A = 10 m/s2 (gravity)

Vf = unknown

Vi = 0

T = 10s

It's simple math. Solve for Vf..

AxT = Vf - Vi

10m/s2 x 10s = Vf - 0

Vf = 100m/s

Solving for distance...

D = Vav x T

Assuming contant acceleration (no wind)..

Vav (average velocity) = (Vi + Vf) / 2

Vav = (0 + 100m/s) /2

Vav = 50m/s

D = 50m/s x 10s

D = 500m

I think you are confusing yourself into thinking the problem is harder than it actually is.

#26I am a winner:

#27Kevin R Brown wrote:No.

An object will accelerate at a constant rate when dropped until it reaches terminal velocity, at which point its acceleration will be zero.

In this case, the acceleration due to gravity is 10 m/s 2, and since we know exactly how long it took for the object to fall, we know exactly how fast it will be going (assuming that it started at rest).

How fast the helicopter was moving is also irrelevant to the question, as long as it wasn't moving upwards.

EDIT: Now, it is possible that during that 10 second time interval, the object reached terminal velocity. But if it had, the question would have specified it, and it would have also specified the resistive coefficient of the air, such that the force of gravity equaled the coefficient multiplied by the terminal velocity... (mg=kv). It would have been a much harder problem to compute, and they would have had to give us the mass of the object as well.

#28theotherguy wrote:Exactly. They could have included the drag coefficient of the object falling, it's mass, the vector and speed at which the object started falling, buoyancy information about the speed and vector of the wind, and barometric pressure data.

Since all that is left out, you only need to know that A = (Vf-Vi)/T and make assumptions about the rest of it.

#29Oh.

I sucks at physics.
