If some kind of vehicle could reach the center of the earth which protected against heat and pressure, what would gravity feel like?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
The vehicle - or any other body for that matter - will be accelerating towards the center in such a way that it will have a very high velocity as it reaches the center. The momentum due to this will make the object continue moving forward - upwards to the opposite side of the earth. Now instead of acceleration there is a deceleration which will make the object return towards the center and the original position thus it will be moving to and fro - up and down - indefinitely. It will never 'be' at the center.

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
I quite understand your predicament and hope the following words would be of some help and comfort.

At death the spirit leaves the body and enters a new phase of life. We know very little of that phase. In all religions there are ceremonies, rituals and prayers for the dead. The bereaved members of the family as well as all relations and friends pray for the soul of the departed and offer special services or sacrifices or rituals in churches or temples. These are very meaningful. This is nothing new. Since the beginning of pre-history we have evidence of such practices. I believe firmly that these are essential and quite helpful.

So the first thing to do is offer prayers and sacrifices as per your belief/your religious customs. Ask your father to accompany you to the place of burial and together light some candles and pray for her since that seems to be what your mother wanted.

Suicide is much different from normal death. The cause of suicide is some acute problem. You and your father must try and sort it out and see if there is something that you people can do that will give peace to the soul – something that may alleviate the acuteness of the problem that led to her suicide.

Can anyone tell me which of the ten commandments is not in the new testament?

Discuss this question

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
As far as my knowledge goes the ten commandments do not appear in the New Testament. It is in the OT. In the N T Jesus summarises the ten commandments into two - 1. Love God above all else. (This summarises the first three commands.) and 2. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. (This summarises the other seven.) In other words Jesus points outs that all the commandments are about Love.

There is no way of knowing that. Some of the heaviest, thousands of them, are about 30 times as big or heavy as the sun. Even with the most powerful equipments of the twenty first century we know very little of the star clusters far away from us.

I posed a question and I worded it incorrectly. I want to put in a garden. I need the perimeter to be 29 feet of triangular area one side will be 5 feet shorter and the other 4 feet longer than the third side. I know how to graph this for the work guys, however, I can not seem to come up with the correct equation?? Help!

Discuss this question

Question found in Education In General
Let the third side be x The other sides are; x+4 and x-5.
The perimeter is x + (x-5) + (x+4) and this is 29'
The equation is: x+x-5+x+4 = 29

3x - 1 = 29
3x = 29 + 1
3x = 30
x = 30/3 : x= 10
The sides are 10', 5' and 14'

I did ask about being there for my son because I would not marry his mother, even as I pay my child support and do as much to help him grow. My reasons are that of compatibility, nothing else. I do not feel we are currently as good a pair. Does this action mean that I am not being there for the kid, or do I have to live under one roof before I can say I was there for him? thnx

Discuss this question

Question found in Parenting & Family In General
What the child needs is not just money, food and clothes, nor a ROOF OVER ITS HEAD. It needs love and affection from its father and mother. It needs parenting.
The next best thing to marrying its mother would be to live under the same roof provided you are on talking terms and at least outwardly friendly and loving.
