MAGNETS, HOW DO THEY WORK?
 
5) Absolute Zero is the point where all matter stops moving down the smallest sub-atomic particle.

17) No. Pretty much guessing but I'd assume the speed of sound would change due to resistance like humidity/density of the air (faster in denser air and slower in less dense air as sound travels by compression waves), substances it travels through like water, wood, metal, and such would alter speed.

22) Just a guess but either Hydrogen or Carbon atoms as they are pretty much in everything
 
1. What is a Googol and what is its power? What year was it first used and who named it?

don't know, figure its a really big or really small number


2. Give the power and numerals of the following Prefix's:

Exa; Peta; Tera

i'll guess that tera is a 1000 1000's, so a million


3. Name the very large numbers starting with Billion up to the name with 100 zeros?


4. What is a finite number and an Infinite Number and is it possible to count to infinity?

a number that can divided whole? such as 6/2=3
a number that cannot be devided whole, such as PI (22/7)
no


5. Define Absolute Zero:
temperature where all elements freeze


6. Define Superconductivity:
where resistance is at or near 0


7. Define "String Theory." :
cheese


8. What is Inertia? What law in Physics did Inertia inspire, and who is the Scientist who proposed it?

objects in motion tend to stay in motion, objects at rest tend to stay at rest.

I do not know.


9. Name the two lift forces that causes a baseball to curve and how many inches and centimeters it can curve in the 60.6 inches or 18.4 meters it travels from pitcher to batter:

baseball sucks

lift and Centripetal motion


11. Who is the founder of the science of Magnetism? What is the unit of magnetism named for him and what is it's symbol?


12. What is the name used to identifty a supposed substance given off during the process of combustion? Name the Theory and the Chemist who developed it.

ash?


13. What is an Adiabatic process?

no idea


14. Who invented tghe Cyclotron, and what is it used to study?

don't know, tornadoes


15. What is a Leyden Jar and what is it used for?

storing jelly?


16. What is the speed of light in miles per second and kilometers per second?

i don't recall the exact number, i'm thinking 60,000 miles per second or something


17. Is the speed of sound constant, and if not, what does it depend on?

no, it depends on the medium the sound wave passes through


18. What is the fourth state of matter?

not solid, not liquid, not gas....can't remember


19. What is the difference between Nuclear fission and nuclear fusion?

fission is energy released when atoms are split aparty, fusion is energy
where atoms are forced together


20. Who developed the Periodic table?

a scientist


21. What was the first element to be discovered?

don't know...


22. What are the most abundant atoms in the universe, and what is the name of the rule that describes this?

atoms are atoms, not elements, atoms make up elements so i'll with Hydroden as the most abundent element in the universe.


23. What is the density of air?

i don't remember


24. What are the 4 major divisions of Chemistry?

no clue


25. What is Nuclear Magnetic Resonance?

i knew this at one point but forgot it.


26. What is a Syzygy?

6 letters


27. What is an Opposition?

a force that works against another force

lol, technically, there are a infinite number, but don't recall the number of standard constellations

i hope its better than a Lucky Dog


30. What is Sidereal time?

i have no idea.
 

1. What is a Googol and what is its power? What year was it first used and who named it?


Googol was the last Martian Emeperor. His power was to command the elements with his mind, and it was first used in Earth year 5000 B.C.E. This power was known as Elementkinesis and was so-named by Sir Isaac Newton.

2. Give the power and numerals of the following Prefix's:

Exa; Peta; Tera


Exa: Power of Earth. Peta: Power of Fire. Tera: Power of Wind. You left out Gi: Power of Water and Mati: Power of Heart. By their powers combined, HE IS CAPTAIN PLANET.

3. Name the very large numbers starting with Billion up to the name with 100 zeros?

Lotta zeros, lotta zeros +1, etc.

4. What is a finite number and an Infinite Number and is it possible to count to infinity?

A finite number is a number so fine that other numbers can't help but be sexually attracted to it. An infinte number is not fine, and all numbers hate it. Theoretically you could count to infinity, but since it's an infinite number and thus ugly, who would want to?

5. Define Absolute Zero:


Absolute Zero is a 2006 B-movie disaster film starring Jeff Fahey and former Baywatch star Erika Eleniak.

6. Define Superconductivity:


Superconductivity occurs when an orchestra conductor is so good at his job that audiences proclaim him to be "super."

The theory that if you tie a piece of string around your finger it will help you remember things.

8. What is Inertia? What law in Physics did Inertia inspire, and who is the Scientist who proposed it?


Inertia is a character in DC Comics. He was originally the clone of Bart Allen (AKA Impulse/Kid Flash) who did evil things and wore a green costume.

9. Name the two lift forces that causes a baseball to curve and how many inches and centimeters it can curve in the 60.6 inches or 18.4 meters it travels from pitcher to batter:


The pitcher and the pitch. 3.

10. Two well-known scientific principles dictate the characteristic flight of a boomerang. What are they?


Australians and kangaroos.

11. Who is the founder of the science of Magnetism? What is the unit of magnetism named for him and what is it's symbol?

12. What is the name used to identifty a supposed substance given off during the process of combustion? Name the Theory and the Chemist who developed it.

Peanut fire. It was developed by noted Peanutologist George Washington Carver.

13. What is an Adiabatic process?

The process in which a diabetic becomes comatose after eating too much sugar.

14. Who invented tghe Cyclotron, and what is it used to study?

The Cyclotron was my favorite ride at the Parish fair when I was a kid. It was used to study how much spinning a kid could take before he puked.

15. What is a Leyden Jar and what is it used for?

It's a device that scientist use to get Leyd.

16. What is the speed of light in miles per second and kilometers per second?

Not as fast as the speed of love.

17. Is the speed of sound constant, and if not, what does it depend on?

Trees falling in the woods and whether or not anyone is around to hear them.

18. What is the fourth state of matter?


Nebraska.

19. What is the difference between Nuclear fission and nuclear fusion?

Nuclear fission occurs when one uses a reactor to kill all the fish in the lake.

20. Who developed the Periodic table?

An angry, irritated woman who really disgusted and upset her dinner guests that night.


21. What was the first element to be discovered?

Rainbows.


22. What are the most abundant atoms in the universe, and what is the name of the rule that describes this?

Magic Atoms. Sorcery.

23. What is the density of air?


Lighter than a feather, heavier than nothing.

24. What are the 4 major divisions of Chemistry?

Acid, Foam, Bubbles, and Gas.

25. What is Nuclear Magnetic Resonance?

An organization for magnets that are against nuclear proliferation.

26. What is a Syzygy?

Everyone's favorite Welsh cousin.

27. What is an Opposition?

The stance I feel towards these questions.

28. How many Constellations are there?

As many as your imagination can make. Take a look, it's in a book. READING RAINBOW.

What you call it when people DO got time for that.
