  1. F= M x D

    you are 100% correct. All forces need to be balanced. I think in my haste I over-simplified the problem,
  2. The Automotive Thread

    if they bother to do it at all. Could well be that they wanted to go out with a bang, but there's no guarantee that you'll die in a straight line car wreck.
  3. The Automotive Thread

    It might have been deliberate but I'm thinking more towards a lack of reaction time to hit the brakes and a gross underestimation of speed, required braking distance and the distance to the end of the runway. I think they pushed for a high top end speed and didn't leave distance for braking and paid the price.
  4. I watched Orville it was better than most of the carp they broadcast as new show. Not a must see, but it was ok.
  5. F= M x D

    Take moment about he bottom right corner. Are you saying that the load from the top is dependent on the width "X"? The load applied to the top is 100*x with a moment arm of x/2 and is in the negative direction. The side moment is fixed at 50 with a moment arm of 12 ft and is positive. Solve for equilibrium -(100x)(x/2)+(50)(12) = 0 x= sqrt(12)
  6. The Automotive Thread

    Heard about his on a car forum I visit. Sad http://www.denverpost.com/2017/09/10/friends-speed-testing-sports-car-runway-killed/

  11. Fudgey's Sister?

    depends if she's really hot and of course has to thoroughly wash her hands.
  12. Me, my wife and son started watching Ozark over the weekend. We're almost done with season 1. Can't say I'm hooked but it's ok. I like stranger things better.
