What would happen if north korea detonated 150 megaton nuclear bomb in some where at Atlantic ocean?

Why do atheists like to ignore thermodynamics and the *law* of entropy when they talk about the *theory* of evolutionism?

Does resistance increase as voltage increases?
Best answer: By increasing V on a certain R you increase I and then joule losses P = R*I^2 or P = R*(V/R)^2 = V^2/R
All this leads to a higher temperature T and since resistivity ρ ≡ T , then the resistance will increase : how much ?
It depends upon the material : talking about copper ,the relevant equation is :
Rx = Ro(234+Tx)/(234+To)
if To = 20°C and Tx = 120°, then Rx = Ro*1.394 which means and increment close to 40% 
Why wood floats on water but steel doesn't? a heavy thousand pound of woods can float, but a light weight of a gram of steel sinks?

POLL: I have a crush on a guy at work? How do I hide it from hubby?

How many steps (equations) would you use to determine the amount of energy needed to bring ice from 35 C to +70 C?

What's Wrong With COLD Fusion or COLD Fission?

How can every digital electronic device use quantum mechanics if nobody understands what quantum mechanics really is?
Best answer: We have defined a mathematical framework that is incredibly accurate in describing how the quantum world behaves. Every physicist understands that mathematical framework that drives its use in quantum devices. What we don’t understand is what reality lives beneath that framework. Many alternate reality interpretations have been proposed that are consistent with the math framework, but none stands out making testable predictions that invalidate the other reality interpretations.
Feynman once said that if you think you understand quantum mechanics, then you don’t. He was not referring to the mathematical framework. He was referring to the reality interpretations that violate our macro view of the universe. 
I’m 27, why do I feel so pressured to do things within a certain time frame in my 20s?
Presssure to reach certain milestones in my 20s, why? 
If Schrödinger’s cat was placed in a box and thrown into a black hole, then what would happen?
Best answer: Unknown until one reopens the box to check. 
What does the speed of an object have to do with the distance traveled?

How can black holes be infinitely dense if the Planck length is the smallest possible distance?

Mass less particles, how do they exist?
Best answer: "particles" doesn't mean "little spheres that move around", at least not in highenergy physics (they can be seen as little spheres in classical mechanics, statistical physics, etc..., but not for quantum field theory).
A particle is like a small "bump" on a field (field as in electromagnetic field), and it doesn't even have to be localized, it can just be any perturbation on that field. These small perturbations are what we call particles. They don't really behave like normal everyday life particles, but the name stuck and now we still call them like that. 
Where does most negative energy come from anyway? I'm a positive person but there's so much negative energy in the world, Why?

I a m14, how do I become a paleontologist?

Is the light from traffic lights black body radiation?

What is wrong with my ebike battery?
My 60v battery wouldn't charge past 51v, I moved it to a different ebike and tried to charge it again and it charged to 52.9v. Are the computers on the ebikes messing with the bms? 
Where the original postulates of the nature of a Black HOle misconstrued?

The wavelength of a particular color of yellow light is 578 nm. The frequency of this color is sec1.?
Best answer: Given,
Wavelength (λ) = 578nm = 578 x 10⁻⁹m
Speed of light (c) = 3 x 10⁸m/sec
Frequency (f) = ?
We know that:
Frequency (f) = speed of light (c) / wavelength (λ)
= 3 x 10⁸m/sec / 578 x 10⁻⁹m = 0.00519 x 10¹⁷/sec
≈ 5.19 x 10¹⁴/sec
∴ frequency (f) = 5.19 x 10¹⁴Hz. 
Is change caused by time or is time caused by change?
