  • What is the least soluble gas in water?

    I want to conduct experiments with water without any gases disolved in it. A vacuum won't work because that changes the boiling point (a physical property that I want to specifically study). What gas could I keep water under that won't affect the water in any way?

  • What color spectrum hits the earth's surface?

    Like I know (Rayleigh scattering){wki.pe/Rayleigh_scattering} leads to the atmosphere appearing blue. And (Mie scattering){wki.pe/Mie_scattering} to the sun appearing yellow. But what about the incident light at the surface of the earth? Does the light of the sun, and atmosphere sum together to be closer to pure white light centered on green?

  • Internet at college?

    I am trying to help out a friend come up with a solution to her internet problem. Hopefully someone here could provide an answer or a way to find an answer.

    She is very homesick at college and wants to be able to skype/facetime or other similar video chat. The issue is that the internet is not very reliable at their dorm. The issue is not only being far from the router, but also the speed of the connection itself.

    I thought that maybe a personal hotspot, through usb or something, like what verizon and other companies offer might work, but I do know they can be expensive.. Especially for high data usage like video calling uses.

    She would probably make a 1 hour call each night. For that amount of data, what might be the best solution? Nothing is really off limits as far as creativity of ideas, cost is really the only factor.

    Thank you for reading and helping, let me know if you need any more information to proceed.

  • How do I take certain information from a webpage?

    For example, If I wanted to be able to to copy (and then paste to a different application) only the Blue names on this page, http://modlist.mcf.li/version/1.6.4

    I know you can view the page source and then the same info can be viewed albeit much more organized with the rest of the code.. Is there a way to extract out only part of a large block of text? I don't want to have to copy and paste several hundred times in order to only have the names of the mods (blue text on that page) This seems like it would be very helpful across many places on the web.

  • My girlfriend of 8 months broke up with me over text messages and now I can't get over her.?

    She said she wanted to go on a break last octorber. then never said another word to me. suddenly started seeming to hate me. I don't feel like I had closure because we lived far apart and only saw each other on weekends. we saw each other on one sunday, and she left without too much argument then we never saw each other again. I mean, now it is march. 5 months later. I am mostly over it. But I have problems being motivated to initiate things with women. Like on several dating site, I just stare at the profiles analyzing them, but I would never start a conversation, not even if they had viewed my profile. And the occasional time i browse the craigslist personals section, even if someone seems attractive, and would be a good hookup, I always pass by.I think I am in committed mode. I don't know how to get out. Like when you are in a committed relationship, you talk to other people, but you don't really cross the line and you do it automatically. I'm not in a relationship but i still have that automatic line. So I guess my question is how do I move on with my life but not with the usual fixes?

  • torque of an electric engine?

    i came upon 2 small electric motors. the label said it had 17,025 rpm and 1/6 of a horsepower. when i calculated the torque of it, i got 30 ft/lbs. Now what i am trying to determine is how much weight this motor can turn. Say i have a 200lb cart with two of these electric engines on it with 1ft diameter wheels on it, assuming there are no gears to change the speed to torque ratio, what would be the speed? is there a formula?

    Thanks,
