Re: Scioly Assassination 56: Mission Impossible

Just wondering, have any of you guys ever even taken a math class ? A non-zero number divided by zero is an expression that evaluates to no value, not a catastrophe or contradiction. On computers, the IEEE-754 standard has well-defined rules for what happens with a division by zero (including divisi...

Re: Sumo Bots B/C [Trial]

As for electronic braking: yes, do it. All decent commercial motor controllers can do electronic braking by "shorting the motor terminals." This forms closed loops in the motor's windings (in the rotor for an plain-jane brushed DC motor), which resists change of magnetic flux (e.g. the rotor rotatin...

Re: Sumo Bots B/C [Trial]

I have an idea: sumo wrestlers should have both of their arms amputated. It's so unfair that they can use those limbs to get leverage over other wrestlers. This way, head-butting each other from a standstill is more important than maneuvering and devising strategies around frame strengths and weakne...

Re: Sumo Bots B/C [Trial]

I had 550-size motors, where the "-size" is a quasi-standard for a motor whose can is about 55mm long. They are easy to find, but finding a good gearhead or gearbox for them will be hard. That's why I think power tools are a much better source of powerful motors with gearboxes. Cordless drills will ...

Re: Sumo Bots B/C [Trial]

I don't understand why you'd ever build light. There's a maximum mass for a reason. I designed under the assumption that everyone else would build to at least the pushing force given µ = 1.0 and given maximum mass, and at least about 10 ft/s of maximum speed (yes, per second). The only reason you wo...

Re: Post Pictures on Wiki W/O uploading as file

You see, for my userpage, I want a Raptor Jesus picture.
How about this? You don't put a Raptor Jesus picture on your wiki userpage. If your problem starts with, "I want to...," you probably shouldn't ask somebody else to solve it.

Re: Challenging Math Problems (Or not)

Don't remember what this was from, but it might have been something from NYCIML. Find the next term in the sequence:
By the way, the next in the sequence is Chambers St.
