Re: Suggestions! (new)

3. Altering Newton's Laws. Right off the bat -- seems like it could be hard to define consistently? As in: if an object with no forces on it should accelerate... which way should it go? The third law would be hard to get around without redefining the force of gravity in some non-symmetrical way. I ...

How to produce other inverse laws in parallel universes

I was just thinking about which gravitational laws a parallel universe could have. I know that having another inverse law with a whole number for the exponent could be produced by a parallel universe having a different number of dimensions. For instance if a universe had two spatial dimensions then ...

Reletivity seems to revert it to r^-2

I noticed that if I set the force law to r^-1 or r^-3 and then turn on relativity it produces nearly elliptical orbits even though without relativity it's only r^-2 that produces elliptical orbits.

Have you tried turning on Flingable?
I'm not sure how to turn the Flingable on.

Can you solve this riddle?

A person named Alice is on one side of a river and manages to walk around it without using a bridge or stepping in the river and the river is far too big to jump across. After getting around the river Alice grabs something made from a spongy material and glues it between two poles. She then grabs a ...

Re: Suggestions! (new)

Some suggestions I have are 1. Make it so we can choose to have inertial mass separate from gravitational mass. It would be interesting to see the effects of different objects accelerating differently from the same gravitational field. It would be interesting if we could have an object with a value ...

Question about the weak force?

Does anyone on this forum know if the gauge bosons for the weak force are self interacting? I mean can a W-Boson emit or absorb another W-Boson to become a Z-Boson or can a Z-Boson emit or absorb a W-Boson to become another W-Boson? Can a W-Boson or Z-Boson exchange a another Z-Boson to change veloc...

Re: Interesting Math

The reason for this is that each decrease is a 70% decrease so each decrease causes your life time to be three and a third times shorter while each increase only increases your life time by one half so while decreases are less common then increases each decrease has a significantly larger effect tha...
