Indeed, Z2, this IS the case. :haha:

EDIT: I took A-Level physics and maths, so do understand what SI units are and what the symbols/letters stand for.

That would be silly because it's 108 g mol-1. Au is gold :wink:

Damnit. I always get those two mixed up, for some reason.

That's a very specific amount. Why not just say 40 kilos?


We had to make problems for our Physics class, and I really wanted to mess with my classmates.

Well, you're right. So you actually went through and solved it in the 5 minutes between our posts? Or did you just know that the pulling force would be stronger than the tensions?

Just looking at the numbers, I made an educated guess. :haha:

Nothing is in it
But something is in it
Nobody is in it
But somebody is in it
If you have it
You and I are in it
What is it?

Er... OK... In future I need to remember to have a puzzle ready in case I win this game...

There are four cards on the table. Two cards are face up, and two cards are face down. One shows a number 3, one shows a number 8, one shows a brown back and one shows a red back.

The logical proposition is that if a card has an even number on one face, then the back of it is red. You may turn over two cards to test the proposition. Which cards do you turn over?

Nope. But by a process of elimination, you've got to be almost there...
