This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

• Joke 2: Physics would've been much easier if a "tree" had fallen on Newton's head instead of the "apple".
• Joke 3: Physics ['fiziks] (n: functioning as singular): 1. (Physics/General Physics) the branch of science concerned with extremely long and complicated formulas to describe how a ball rolls.
• Joke 4: If it's green and wriggles it's biology. If it stinks it's chemistry. If it doesn't work it's physics.

A helium atom walked into the bar. The bartender says "We don't serve helium atoms here". It didn't react.

The bartender says, "sorry, we don't serve neutrinos here". A neutrino walks into a bar.

Two chemists walk into a bar. One orders $H_2O$. The second orders some $H_2O$ too. The second chemist dies.

Heisenberg was stopped for speeding in a highway. The police officer asks "do you know how fast you were going?" Heisenberg replied "No, but I know where I am."

I'd tell you some more chemistry and other misc. science jokes, but I'm afraid all the good ones argon. $\ddot\frown$

Here is a variation of 5: Heisenberg and Schrodinger were riding together down the highway. They got pulled over for speeding and the police officer asks "Do you know how fast you were going?" Heisenberg replied "No, but I know where I was." Thinking this to be an odd answer, the police asked them to open the trunk. He found a dead cat inside. He asked "Did you know that you have a dead cat in the trunk?" To which Schrodinger replied "I do now."

All the physicists are playing hide and seek. Einstein is the ‘den’ and stands against the wall with his eyes closed and counts till 100 to enable all the physicists to run and hide. At the count of 100 Einstein turns around and finds Newton standing there. He screams, “Newton, you are out!” Newton says, “No, I ‘m not!” Einstein says, “Yes, you are. I can see you here in front of me”. Newton says, “I’m not out. Pascal is.” Einstein is a bit confused and starts to scratch his head and beard. Newton says “Here, Let me explain” He draws a square one meter by one meter on the floor and stands in the middle of it and says, “Newton per meter square is a Pascal, so it’s Pascal who’s out not me”

Story of Newton's laws:- A cow was walking ... NEWTON stopped it .. it stopped walking.... He found his 1st law that "An object continues to move unless it is stopped..." He gave a force by kicking the cow ... It gave a sound "MA" ... He found 2nd law of motion "F=MA" After that cow gave a kick to Newton ,then he found 3rd law of motion.... "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction"...... This is the original story.....!!! :D

What is the difference between a physicist, an engineer, and a mathematician?

If an engineer walks into a room and sees a fire in the middle and a bucket of water in the corner, he takes the bucket of water and pours it on the fire and puts it out.

If a physicist walks into a room and sees a fire in the middle and a bucket of water in the corner, he takes the bucket of water and pours it eloquently around the fire and lets the fire put itself out.

If a mathematician walks into a room and sees a fire in the middle and a bucket of water in the corner, he convinces himself there is a solution and leaves.

Three mathematicians and three physicists are travelling by train to a conference. The physicists each buy a ticket, but the mathematicians buy only one between the three of them. The mathematicians hide in the toilet when the ticket collector arrives, and hand the ticket to him through the door. On the return journey, the physicists decide to play the same trick and buy only one ticket between the three of them. The mathematicians don't buy any tickets this time. When the physicists are hiding in the toilet, one of the mathematicians knocks on the door and says, "Tickets, please!"

The moral of the story is that physicists use mathematicians' ideas, but they don't understand the principles behind them.

Richard Feynman, while having dinner with friends at Chinatown, was once goaded by a shell game con man to play for a chance to win. He let the con man cleverly shuffle around his shells, and then when he was asked to guess where the pea was, Feynman said, "Well, what I do know is where the pea is not. It is not under this shell and it's not under that shell. Am I right?" The con man had to let Feynman win his bet.

Farmer Fred wishes to enclose the greatest area of land with the smallest length of fence for his herd of sheep. Unwisely, he contacts the local university, which sends Engineer Erin, Geographer Gerold, and Topologist Thomas.

Engineer Erin builds a circular enclosure. "Out of all shapes, it has the greatest area-to-perimeter ratio," he explains.

Geographer Gerold takes a world globe and builds a model fence circling the 'world'. "For all purposes, consider yourself to have an enclosure containing half of the Earth."

To Farmer Fred's surprise, Topologist Thomas builds nothing at all. "What is your plan?" Farmer Fred asks, puzzled.

Topologist Thomas smiles. "Consider the fact that the Earth's surface, for our purposes, is a finite, boundless, two-dimensional manifold, which your herd of sheep cannot leave..."

• A physicist and a mathematician are stranded on an island. There are two coconut trees on the island. The physicist claims one as his own and the mathematician does the same. After a while, the physicist starts feeling hungry. He looks at his tree and sees a coconut there. So, he measures the elevation of the top of the tree and after having pulled out his Vernier Calipers, he measures pieces of wood, determines the Young's modulus, cuts them to the right length and uses them to create a structure which enables him to reach the coconut.
• Now, the mathematician who was watching the physicist, feels hungry. He looks up at his tree and notices a coconut too. Then he takes one hour to climb up the tree, takes the coconut, comes down in fifteen minutes, goes to the physicist's tree, climbs it in another hour, comes down in fifteen minutes and asks the physicist to help him, thus reducing the problem to a previously solved one.

What is the difference between a physicist, an engineer, and a mathematician? If an engineer walks into a room and sees a fire in the middle and a bucket of water in the corner, he takes the bucket of water and pours it on the fire and puts it out.

If a mathematician walks into a room and sees a fire in the middle and a bucket of water in the corner, he convinces himself there is a solution and leaves.

A physicist, a mathematician and a computer scientist discuss what is better: a wife or a girlfriend. The physicist: "A girlfriend. You still have freedom to experiment." The mathematician: "A wife.

And I can be with my computer without anyone disturbing me..."

If friction is independent of velocity, then can anybody explain me why is a matchstick struck fast (means with high velocity) onto the side of the matchbox to light the matchstick?

- 7 years ago

because when time is more then the same heat produced by the chemical reaction b/w the stick and the matchbox grains due to friction dissipates and is not enough to ignite the stick. If the same heat is produced in less time by stricking it fast then the heat is sufficient to ignite before it dissipates.
