1984 (The other user only answered the location)

Based on the test at the last competition, there seems to be a lot of questions on history, so:
What is the fastest speed ever reached by a MagLev train?

Re: Shock Value B/Circuit Lab C Question Marathon

Okay. Let's start out with a SUPER easy basic question. Let's say that a circuit has one resistor (lightbulb) and one battery. The battery produces 10V, and the resistor has 2 Ohms. How many amperes are running through the circuit? Classic Ohm's Law question! answer|5A Edit: Oops! It appears I forg...

If you do, are you allowed to make your prediction AFTER seeing the temperature of the hot water+the cool water? Also, the rules say...
