Re: It's About TIme

The period at the poles should be around
99.6%
of that at the equator. I don't understand what you do with the radius though (I just used the International Gravity Formula).

Re: Geologic Mapping C

Hey: at the invitationals I attended this year, we generally did well on 'informational' questions and could solve the majority of the stereonet/mathematics-based problems. However, there were always a couple more mathematically focused questions that tripped us up – looking back at the problems, I...

Re: GeoLogic Mapping C

I'm not magi, but that's not correct.|Reverse underwater faulting produces trenches; mid-ocean ridges are formed by normal faulting (specifically from magma welling up from the rift created). It's the difference between pushing two bread loaves together (continental plates are thick but not dense, ...

Re: Geologic Mapping C

It should be WsinD+HcosD. If you've taken geometry, sinD=AC/W and cosD=CB/H, thus WsinD=AC and HcosD=CB; AC+CB=AB=WsinD+HcosD. The graders either got that one wrong, or perhaps used a different angle? (Perhaps you thought they were using D, but in reality they were using the complement of D on the ...

Re: Scioly Achievement List

Yeah I've done several of these (you can see the results in my sig) For Geomaps, I (or to be honest my partner, I didn't study at all) started studying less than 24 hrs before this year. Of course, we medalled at nats last year... (Clutch) For It's About Time, we didn't finish it or test it until af...

Re: State Tournament Results

Arizona C: 1) Catalina Foothills Blue 2) University High Black 3) Desert Mountain Maroon The state page shows something different; has it changed, or is it incorrect on the state page? Those are the rankings that were reported at the awards ceremony. Later the teams were notified that a scoring err...
