Re: Question about Sample ASL

Our team hasn't found anything smaller. I've heard of teams making their own jugs to make them smaller, but I'm sure you know not to do it since they wouldn't be 'beverage' jugs. How many jugs do you plan on having on your device? If it's quite a number it could definitely take up a lot of space. A...

Re: Question about Sample ASL

Alright, that's what I thought you were thinking. Good that you figured it out. Did you have any other questions I didn't address? Haha thanks! I didn't have this in my original post but is there something narrower than a half gallon milk jug that still counts as a plastic beverage jug? I would rea...

Re: Question about Sample ASL

I have submitted a question to the FAQs about this. With the current response, I could imagine some event supervisors penalizing teams for non-scoring golf balls in scoring jugs. I submitted one as well, so maybe it will attract a reponse, haha. The ironic thing is that the sample ASL has a non-sco...

Question about Sample ASL

Talking about this ASL on soinc.org : http://soinc.org/sites/default/files/uploaded_files/SampleASLJan26v2.pdf I am not sure why the energy transfers made between no. 2 and 3 are non counted for points. They are 1. initiated by the process of a golf ball moving into a scoring jug 2. It has a sequenc...

Re: Mission Possible C

Is using a nichrome wire melting a fishing line legal because it is heated up from electricity? Since it is used to take up time, and a rule says adjustments to take up time cannot be electrical, but the transfer is electric -> thermal -> mechanical, the thermal -> mechanical is what takes up time b...

Re: Mission Possible C

So completing a circuit mechanically to trigger flow of current, that will count as mech -> elec? It's confusing since the mechanical energy does not convert to electrical joule to joule, but the mechanical energy activates the electrical? (I submitted a rule clarification, but not sure when/if they...

Re: Water Quality B/C

What does the Fleshy Algae look like? Google Images doesn't pull up any useful images... I think it's seaweed, but I'm not sure. Do we only have to identify organisms on the list given in the rules or do we also have to know others? Since in the rules they put IDing and regarding the table into two...

Re: Mission Possible C

this FAQ says that only 2 of the 3 types of items are allowed in the mixture of the start task. ( http://www.soinc.org/node/1225 ) does this mean during the bonus task you can qualify with 2 containers with their respective objects and another one simply empty to qualify for it? Or if you only had 2...
