Here's my list: constellation spectral type (i think there's only one star or stars this year) cooridinates pictures (lol) apparent/absolute magnitude (hard to find absolute ...

Re: Last Task

A pulley system is pretty hard.. as the flagpole itself has to be 30 cm since.. the pulley itself is considered part of the original device.. so it has to be raising a 30 cm flagpole.. in order to be 30 CM above the whole device.

Re: Protein Modeling C [NY Trial]

lmao dunno why i wrote about dark matter here.. anyways... umm yeah anyone have any ideas on side chains this is depressing..how are we going to do the real build at the competition if it's so hard to look for them online with an unlimited amount of resources and 3 months?

Re: Astronomy C

These were questions on the invitationals: 38. What are the 2 coordinates used by astronomers to locate stars on the celestial sphere? 39. Give those 2 coordinates for the Cartwheel Galaxy. (TB #3) 38 I can understand, but 39? are the coordinates for the Cartwheel galaxy special or something? I know...

Re: Astronomy C

Maybe I just haven't been able to see any light curves in which i can read the x and y variables. But could someone show me a site where I can learn to read light curves graphs? H-R diagrams were pretty easy but I have no idea how to interpret the graphs... such as O-C diagrams and how to tell where...

Re: Astronomy C

I'm curious if anyone has some equations that we should know/those that would be helpful. Obviously distance modulus, kepler laws, parallax to parsec.. and parsec to AU and parsec, and With distance and angular diameter(of orbit), we can use the small angle formula to determine the actual distance o...

Re: Protein Modeling C [NY Trial]

I too, am having troubles findign the important side chains, the helices and all that were easy by the important side chains is annoying to find.. lemme know if you guys find sites for the research because I've been looking and not having any luck (don't have to give me the exact amino acid #.. unle...
