    Here here! (Or is it hear hear? :confused: )

    Come on old chap, we're in suspenders. I showed people at work who keep asking me have I got the answer and reason yet. :unsure:

    Since you ask, it's 'hear hear'. Apparently, MPs (and presumably other people) used the expression to persuade colleagues to listen to (hear) a speaker with whom they particularly agreed. :)

    I found RH's take interesting and intellectual, and I'd like to agree more with him but he'd just mock me for switching. So if he makes a good point, I darent say. It's that and the political speak that finally got up my nose.

    Well, and incessantly bringing everything back to racism. I don't even want to hear about motorbikes that much, which I love. There's just no 'off' switch; an almost Jack in the box aspurgers quality that pops up the second you say anything.

    I'll switch ignore off for a week and see if he's still at it...

    P.S. My mate did the 1/4 mile at Santa Pod the weekend on his Busa. 141mph in 10.24 seconds. :D
     
  8. Balls...... right hand side goes down with considerable force, just simplified it, took a glass of water, put it on the scales, then held an object in the glass, weight went up considerably...

    Now I just need to understand why..... pffftt!! I was wrong..... again!

    That is my reasoning too. The right hand flask might also be lightened a tiny amount by surface tension between the water and the ball.

    AronSearle's currently ragdolling him around on the other thread, where RH's inability to respond to Aron's logical, succinct argument with anything except with accusations of insults/closemindedness/abuse betrays a serious lack of intelligence. Sorry to disappoint, Tone.

    I know Cajar.;) Have re-joined, un-ignored him, to see if it ends the same as my experience... :rolleyes:

    But back to this thread. I've concluded it is one of three things. :D

    Hmmm , however having seen the video I can see that I was wrong and can now understand why so my third answer :oops: is that the right hand side goes down.

    Might I suggest 'pi$$ off'? I believe in calling a spade a spade rather than dithering about!

    This is the correct answer.

    I cant claim to understand the physics behind it, but the boyant force of the steel ball pushes it down, as the steel ball is *outside* of the system.

    The boyant force of the ping pong ball is *within* the system, so does nothing.

    The boyant force is greater than the weight of the string and ping pong ball.

    FYI if you look at the asian guys youtube video, you will see a link in his comments to an improved (and overly long) experiment.
