Hey all. So I've been reading these boards for about 2 or 3 years now, but I've never really looked at these particular threads. Whats the point of them? Or is the point being there is no point?

Congratulations, glad it all worked out.

Random chat, physics homework, post padding, take your pick.

Lucky for you, I already figured out that the total distance traveled (going up, down back to where it was thrown at the starting point, then all the way down to the ground) is 100.45 m

Also, for this:

My simpleton mind would guess that bicycle A passes B every time they intersect.

And lastly:

I'd like to compare with someone else and see how they estimated.

Hopefully, that will be the last questions I ask for now and we can get back to the obsequious banter. Thanks for everyone who's helped me so far.

K good. A pointless thread may be able to answer my pointless debacle.

Would you ever date an ex-girlfrined who cheated on you? Unless of course lady troubles are off limits

For the bikes, B passes A, then A passed B. Since the graph is just distance over time, the higher of the two lines is ahead at any given time. Thus, A starts ahead, B passes A at the first intersection, then A takes the lead again at the second.

For the car, looks to me like ~2m/s^2 for 2nd gear and probably a little under 1m/s^2 for 4th, but it's tough to really get an estimate based on that graph.

Rutgers is a state school, so you can really get whatever you want out of it. There are some good professors there and tons of parties. If you want a decent education you can get it. If you want to waste your life but have a blast for four years you can do that. If you want to work hard five days a week like a good student (okay, three days a week) and party the rest you can get a nice mix.

I wouldn't "date" her per se, but I would certainly take advantage of the upper hand I had, and get some revenge in the bedroom.

That is of course, if I wasn't married.

Silly me, forgot that B passes A at the first one.

As for the shifting gears graph (velocity vs. time, didn't realize it was hard to see), I estimated about 3.33 m/s^2 for the 2nd gear, 0.636 m/s^2 for the 4th. Turned out to be close enough to be correct. How far it traveled in 4th gear, I guessed 446 m, also close enough to be correct.

Looking for equations to use right now.

EDIT: Thinking it might be 5.10 m. Anyone care to double-check?

10 m/s is the rate of gravity, so I think it would be more than that. However I took physics a couple years ago and did poorly so dont quote me.

Big time congrats. Babies are always good news even when they arrive a little early. So, tell us, boy or girl? Best wishes to you and your wife.

My two cents: you have to start the mind control early. I live less than 10 miles from NYC and about three from the swamp known as the Meadowlands. My daughter has been booing the Yanks and the Devils since before she could talk. I told her that if I ever caught her rooting for either team, she'd have to find a new residency. She's 10 now and has some very colorful words when referring to Jeter. She makes me so proud.

Congratulations MH!! A new baby is such nice news!

Life might feel crazy now, but it won't take long before crazy is normal!

Treasure every moment with your little one - they grow up so fast.

Congratulations man, I'm not even thinking about the Bruins yet, too terrified that the Sox might win the world series again.

Good luck with everything though!

Well in all fairness it was all right. Not my cup of tea when it comes to reading material, but it certainly could have been worse. I actually enjoyed Kafka a lot, but I also enjoy crazy stuff like that.
