Did you know that tornadoes can displace shellfish?
Apparently the locals in danger areas are able to identify oncoming bad weather due to the shellfish preceding it.
They call it the clam before the storm.
I really liked learning about displacement in Physics.
It's pretty straight to the point.
A friend of mine asked for my opinion on his displacement obsession.
‘Whatever floats your boat’
February 29th, 2020
On February 29th of this year, something extraordinary happened.
I was walking across the road, head down, minding my own - when I heard it. This incessant, mechanical noise. Like spring-loaded footsteps. Real slow.
Far away, it came. Cascading against the city walls. A pneumatic sigh....
A mathematician, a physicist and an engineer are tasked with finding the volume of a small ball
The mathematician measures the diameter and calculates the volume.
The physicist drops the ball in a tank of water and measures the displaced water.
The engineer examines the ball for a part number.
This joke may contain profanity. 🤔
The science of ping pong balls...
A science convention is in town. So a chemist, physicist and engineer walk into a local bar. The bar tender sees them and says, "hey, you're all wise guys, how would I figure out the volume of this ping pong ball?" The chemist takes the ball from him, pulls out a graduated cylin...
A man is in Iraq and sees a fancy antique lamp for sale in shop.
The shop owner assured the man that if he rubbed the lamp a genie would appear and he would get 3 wishes.
The man spent many days planning for his three wishes and finally rubbed the lamp.
When the genie appeared the man exclaimed in wonder. It was true! "For my first wish....." <...
An engineer, a physicist, a mathematician ...
An engineer, a physicist, a mathematician, a biologist, and a chemist are each asked to compute the volume of a little red rubber ball.
The mathematician finds the equation of the surface, performs a triple integral, and computes the volume
The physicist dunks the ball in a pool of wat...
A mathematician, a physicist and an engineer were all given a red rubber ball and told to find the volume.
The mathematician carefully measured the diameter and evaluated a triple integral.
The physicist filled a beaker with water, put the ball in the water, and measured the total displacement.
The engineer looked up the model and serial numbers in his "Red-Rubber-Ball" table.
A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer are asked to find the volume of a red ball.
The mathematician measures its diameter, substitutes it into a formula for volume, and calculates the answer.
The physicist submerges the ball and measures the volume of displaced liquid.
The engineer looks it up in his Handbook on Red Balls.
What face does a Syrian make when he has a bad day?
On a side note, I hope prosperity upon all the Syrians who have been displaced.
Two boys are having a competition.
They have made a bet to see who could fart the hardest. To settle the bet, they have a pan filled with flour and leveled. Whoever can displace the most flour wins.
The first boy crouches over the pan and lets one rip. When the flour settles, they see the pan has only half the flour as it did...
A Republican politician prays to God to stop climate change...
Nearly all of the world's scientists present the politician with data about the causes and potentially disastrous effects of climate change.
Ignoring them, the politician prays, "Dear Lord, please help us with this climate change problem!"
Captains of industry present the politician wi...
My physicist gf told me she loves me to the moon and back ....
I don't know if she was referring to the Distance or Displacement.
