Something with a weight of ten pounds on Earth genuinely does only weigh 1.67
pounds on the Moon. But what about mass? This is where slugs come in.
Although rarely used in the UK, the slug is the equivalent unit of mass to the
pound as a unit of weight. On Earth, an object with a mass of 1 slug weighs
around 32 pounds. This is because the acceleration due to gravity is around 32
feet per second per second. Further reading: Physics for Gearheads QUESTION

Instead of one-on-one fights to the death between remote-controlled machines,
these robots vied to outperform each other in specific challenges, such as
elevating a Ping-Pong ball into the air, or herding Ping-Pong balls into a plastic
trough. These early games taught college students about inventing from scratch,
using machine tools, and how to abide by the unforgiving laws of physics. And
the grandfather of all task-based-competitions was the 2.70 design contest, held
each year at ...

Modern analyses have replaced brain power with CPU power. From the
perspective of the physicist, statistical methods are tools; they are a means to an
end. As an analogy, consider the car. People use cars to get from point A to point
B. Most people don't care how or why a car works. In fact, many people think that
car enthusiasts (often referred to as gearheads) are strange. You certainly don't
need to be a gearhead to use a car, but it's a good idea to learn how to drive

It was a simple matter of physics: eighteen to twentyone crushed cars could
easily and safely be stacked on a single flatbed tractortrailer setup (fig. 2) versus
but a handful if they were more crudely compacted by sledgehammers and
backhoes.77 Crushers also gave us some of television's most memorable scenes
, from Michael Knight and his car KITT being dropped into one in season 2 of
Knight Rider to the obliteration of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman's “Krystal Ship

It violates at least one law of physics and pisses off a few others. But the idea
behind the idea — a car that runs on something so plentiful and cheap it's almost
valueless — will never go away. It's just too tantalizing to give up. Almost a
century ago, in 1916, this claim was made by an American. And in between there
have been many others, all of whom dreamed of filling their cars up with a garden
hose. Well, that, and taking as much money from hopeful rubes as possible. The
idea of ...
