Re: Astronomy C

I tried your problem using the following equation:

(M1+M2)=A^3/P^2

I found it here: http://www.austincc.edu/jheath/Solar/Ha ... /nvk3l.htm

Now, I'm not an expert in math nor this event, but I did receive the same answer as you, so perhaps the answer key is wrong...?

Re: Meteorology B

On the test I just took at the Comet Invitational, the ionosphere included both the thermosphere and the exosphere, but not as a "real" layer... The Ionosphere was listed to the the left of the other two layers that it included. I think that seems like a good way to show it.

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

Does anyone know if we will be asked about the zeroth law?
It is one of the laws of Thermodynamics, and it's also one of the easier to understand, so I would assume yes.

Re: Reach for the Stars B

Does anybody know where to find information on the Pulsar G359.23-0.82? I don't know much about it, apart from the fact that it is a Pulsar. There's no Wikipedia article on it, and Google isn't giving me a satisyfying result.... Its nickname is "The Mouse", and NASA has a pretty good page on it. Th...

Re: Road Scholar B

So what did everyone think about the Nats test?
There was one question asking the price of a ferry trip to the Dry Tortugas islands. I ended up taking that trip last summer. Other than that..... I liked it.

http://www.scioly.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=121&t=3036 This is the link to the study marathon from last year. You can see that it was an active thread all through the year. The thread is locked now, but you can still see it.

Re: Meteorology B

The [wiki]Meteorology/Everyday Weather[/wiki] can serve as a general guide for learning the basic parts of the event. To do better, you have to do some more research outside, but most of the foundation is there.
I agree, it's one of the better wikis on the site (if not the best).

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

Finally got my rules manual today... looks like they're changing the max dimensions from 30cmx30cm to 15cmx15cm. Hopefully we'll see some significantly different designs from this change! 15x15? Wow, I didn't expect that much. But that's really all you need, when my device was 30x30, I just knew th...
