I just checked.  The ground (gravity) wins.  Clocks move slower on the earth surface.

At orbital velocities, Einstein's relativity increases the mass of the space station by about three billionths.  It also slows down your clock..... atomic, Mickey Mouse, or otherwise.   Every 99 years or so you would need a leap second.    Tom

Excellent.

Also remember that “m” changes with velocity, but only relevant at extremely high velocities – nothing we will see here on earth.

E = mc2 is, at relativistic velocities – E = mc2 / (1-v2/c2)1/2

Thus we can see that as velocity approaches the speed of light, so does mass, and so does the energy required to keep accelerating it.  Hence, only massless particles (photons etc.) can move at that speed.

Of course, I think my wife comes close to that when I screw up.  But I have always been fascinated with relativistic effects and get read and study enough about them.  Getting into this area, and then Quantum mechanics, requires that our brain leave the realm of what we normally understand.  My brain is always in a different realm, just not the right one.  Again – check with my wife and kids.  Well, and anyone here!

Yep. Kinematics

v = dx/dt
a = dv/dt

thus Newton's law.

Fnet = d(mv)/dt

What you took, John, may have been the equivalent of high school physics rather than engineering physics.

v = d / t
a = v / t
Fnet = m ∙ a

Hard to imagine.  For intro to physics of motion we needed differential calculus, and integral calculus for magnetism and electricity.  Then on to differential equations and multi variable.  Good for you!

I guess, though, that you could do some motion work with just basic trig.

For Calculus I believe that.  I have found no practical use other than moving through physics.  I am sure it is useful in Chemistry, also.  But when I needed help, it was the physicists who could do it.

                    Actually, Stephen, I went to engineers when I worked for GE and had calculus. Not a single one of them could explain it to me. Most didn't even try. The company comptroller said to me, "we don't use that crap anymore for forecasting."

Interesting, John.  When I mentioned that so many parents couldn’t do simple algebra, your answer was that you checked with your engineers and they said why should they, we have calculators?

Personally, I think that Algebra I, Geometry I, and Trigonometry I or Trig/pre-calc should be mandatory for graduation from high school.  (Personally, I would like to substitute Algebra II in place of Geometry, but that’s just me.)  But in order to be successful in those classes, students need the foundations from Primary and Middle schools.  But none of this is simple.  We don’t want the Federal Government involved, we want it at state level.  The problem with state level is that we quickly reach the point where a high school diploma from one state isn’t comparable to one from another.  I am not sure that is good either.  I particularly like the Abitur path in Western Europe.  But there the students and parents are interested in education.  In the U.S., education is the number one commodity for which people strive to get the least for their money.  Before anything will work, we need to fix that.  And I don’t know how to change attitudes.  Our kids simply don’t give a shit.

No, Algebra Isn't a 'Civil Rights Issue,' and Kids Aren't That Stupid<http://em.mrc.org/v0850LUb0KYSRinfB00L000>

In the latest move to dumb down society to the point where our brains no longer function at all, one community college chancellor is now suggesting high schools and colleges nix algebra classes because they’re too hard.
