And now let me tell you why our educational system is going down hill fast (and I'll admit I'm a lot older than most of you).
When I went to HS: Basic Physics was a Freshman (9th grade) class, Basic Trig was a So or Jr class - these were required for all (college prep or not).  Basic Calc was a required class for all college prep (even those headed for an English, History, etc, program).
Now wonder why our children are not getting an adequate education!
JMO  ;)
That was the path we did when I was in school. I took Calc as a Junior. The answer to the famed 'W' question of "Is our children learning?" Is no!
The teachers are not to blame either, this country has a bad taste in its mouth for overpaid bad teachers and it's ridiculous. Wisconsin teachers are not why we test so low. We don't value education and our educators enough. We are making our teachers teach to these stupid standardized tests. Parents are coddling these kids and defending them all the time giving the teachers no room for discipline or control of the classroom. On the same note, kids are distracted by cell phones and tech crap that is in their pockets. We are cutting resources from the schools left and right (in addition to teachers!) and making our teachers work in much larger classrooms with far less resources. I'm afraid of where to put my kid in this declining educational system...  [DH] [hijack] [OT] [DH] [hijack]

If you are calling BS on the claim that there is not a place with calculus or physics in high school.... let me tell you, I've seen it... It wasn't pretty.

There I was minding my own business in the corner chomp'in down on some bamboo :P

and out of nowhere  :o   "Don't taze me bro ..."  ;)  :P :P :P :P

This isn't the case for the bullet fired from the gun, since it will be spinning at a high rate of speed while it flies in the horizontal direction.  This spinning motion will in fact create a force which is perpendicular to the direction of motion.  Therefore, the two bullets will not hit the ground at the same time.

I don't disagree with you GC (i.e. that I am over simplifying a complicated issue).  I was trying to help the young sailor {navy nuke want'ta'be} on how to view (and not over think) the questions on the NAPT.  I am not sure how that turned out at this point.


BUT, since this thread is now in the weeds; let me offer this to the group.

At A School (circa late 1980's) on the Physics final (iirc) we were given the following question for extra credit.


Briefly describe in detail "What happens when an un-stoppable object impacts an un-moveable object?"

But that perpendicular force will rotate with the bullet's center of mass. My theory is that the slight discrepancy between the two, as measured in labs and MythBusters, due more to: 1. changes to fired bullet path-length due to rifling pitch (this is especially pronounced in the M193 ball round fired through M16A1 20" barrels at 1:12 pitch vs M16A2 1:7 pitch 20" barrels, hence the switch to the M855 round)

-and-

2. Coanda effect on a rapidly moving object.

Just my 2 hayshillings worth, from a distant relative of James Clerk Maxwell  ;)

My next choice was the big bang, but yours is equally credible ;)

Schill -> good luck, let us know how it goes man.

World's Finest Navy.... That said, yeah it takes forever and lower all expectations with anything outside of the nuclear community. For example, Navy's been making burgers for many years and still can't find a bun to fit the burger.
Paperwork...... No different. Although, I've been hearing for years that we are going to "continue" to become even more paperless to make things 'more' efficient.
Imagine how long it should take and multiply it by a decent number....
Good Luck!
