  • I recall there was a case where some ppl are trapped in underground caves and there water inside. the robot could go under the water and probe to find where the trapped survivors are,.. going through narrow spaces and such.. if it reach them.. it can essential provide them with air via the tube and other things like drinking water.

It was you who instilled in me a love for physics and I would like to say a huge thank you! You probably won't even read this comment, but I still want to write it. Thanks!

  • This doubt has blown my mind hard.... Plz answer me😩 As we all know, in transverse and longitudinal waves, the medium it self dosen't moves forward, it just moves back-forth /up-down and energy travels through these waves. And this energy is transfered by the above mentioned specefic movement of particles of medium. Now, The question is, to "move" the particles of medium in that way, Some energy is must required. So, dose that means the energy traveling through a wave gose on decreasing slowly? And one thing more, what is the state of this energy which is travelling through the wave and moving through the particles of the medium? of Course it is not solid, fluid, plasma. It Seems similar to gaseous state. So, is energy a gas without any molecular structure? In Dominoes game, when we apply force or give energy to the first Dominoe, it falls on other dominoe and transfers that energy to it. 2nd dominoe falls on 3rd, 3rd falls on 4th and so on. We see the transfere of energy. But we what actually we See is the effect or the work done by energy, we don't see "energy". So, How dose "pure energy" looks like?. We can fill a tank with pure oxygen, can we fill a tank with pure energy?

  • I understand that this is kind of a laucher video... and concept is cool. I can think of a few uses. Main one would be a weapon to disperse gas. Could be in a building or a mob of people. The recon aspect is awesome, it'll be cool if it can sustain itself longer without an air compressor. Second is on a larger scale... playing with the push some, could be used for some kind of airlock or exploration. Third, collecting water from a stream for camping, or collecting oxygen from plankton in the ocean.

  • Do Photons Have Mass? YES... I Sincerely Beg You To PROVE ME WRONG! ... and the Answer To The Universe Is -42 !!! The Mass of a Photon is Given by: m = (h/cλ) (kg) where, m = mass of a single photon c = speed of light, λ = wavelength of photon “Bozeon Constant” b is as follows: b = h/c (kg m) b =6.62607004x10^(-34) (kg m^2/s) / (299792458) (m/s) b = 2.210219x10^(-42) (kg m) The Mass of a Photon Is: m = b/λ (kg) or, m = 2.210219x10^(-42) / λ (kg) A typical Red photon with a wavelength of 700nm has the following mass: m = 2.210219x10^(-42) (kg m) / 7x10^(-7) (m) Mass of a 700 nm Red Photon: m = 3.1574557x10^(-36) (kg ) PROVE ME WRONG OR… Join The TTOE Team At BRAVE and Help Save Physics From Those With Warped Spacetime Minds: @BozeonResearchAndAEtherVerificationEtaireia Notes To Aid Understanding of what EM Dipoles Particles Are … The “Bozeon constant” “b” converts photon wavelength into the sum of all the masses of the “bozeons” or “God particles” that form the “quantum superfluid” in all particles. “Bozeon” is Polish for “God Particle”, the ethnicity of the Conceivor of EM Kinetic Dipole Theory, aka The Theory of Everything. There are trillions upon trillions of dipoles in a single photon. (more on the exact number later). Everything including all elementary particles are made of complex flows of EM Kinetic Dipoles. A Kinetic Dipole is a somewhat symmetric particle with one end that has more mass than the other. Bozeon’s are Electromagnetic Kinetic Dipole Particles that form the EM field. For better understanding you can pretend for now that the Planck Length is the RMS distance between kinetically colliding EM Dipoles (“Bozeons”). You can also pretend that the “size” of a EM Dipole is about 10^(-42) meters in length. The Dipole Mass Density Gradient in Vacuum determines the local force of gravity. Big “G” simply converts Dipole Mass Density Gradients into Acceleration. All forces EM, Gravity, Weak, Strong, are all calculated from the momentum transfers between kinetic collisions of these EM Dipole Particles. EM Dipoles in Vacuum are in a gaseous state and the “quantum superfluid” in all particles is liquefied EM Fields and are technically a Bose-Einstein Condensate of EM Kinetic Dipole Particles. Black holes are supersolids of EM Dipole Particles. Copyright 2021 John E. Boze

  • Hello greetings from Chile. I speak to you through this medium since I do not know how to communicate with you anymore. I have something that might interest you, about prime numbers, since they have a great importance with respect to the laws that govern our universe, and it has been said that it is impossible to find a way to find them in a precise and linear way? and I discovered why, because we were always looking for the wrong part, we have to go to the most basic of life, how the most basic thing that keeps us all alive here works, our eye is a perfect circle that is capable of seeing Everything that touches the light, and the light will always form a triangle towards which it is projected, brings together these two basic principles, plus the fact that everything in the world repeats itself, over and over again, mixes these 3 basic principles of the LIFE, and what happens, you get the formula, if you draw a triangle, and a circle together, and you agree it with a pattern of movement, and in the top vertex you put the one, to the right or left with the other vertices you do the same same, but following a pattern, which is repeated, example: vertex up 1, left vertex 2, right vertex 3. and now it begins to go back, left vertex 4, vertex up 5, right vertex 6, and now backwards, vertex top 7, left vertex 8, right vertex 9, and ot backwards, left vertex 10, top vertex 11, right vertex 12, and backwards, repeat this pattern forever and you will have all the prime numbers arranged at the top, do you realize? It is what governs us at every moment, in the same way, our heart contracts to pump, everything in the world responds to the same effect, as no one has been able to see it before ... we all believe that the world just keeps moving forward, but no, we are in the present, past and present at the same time, I hope you are interested, it would be great if I am right someone takes it into account, greetings.
