you cant use = here. they arent the same. you could use that as an estimation in a static scenario, but never ever with a = .

are you all freakin nuts?? slugs, pounds, feet, cubits, miles, average tennesse cock lengths and what else you are using. that is insane. how could anione understand that, or even dare to calculate sonthing with that shit
If you want to measure how much flour your cookies need, fine, use your frikkin pound, but if you want to come anywhere close to physiks, please, please, please use the SI system.
And i am pretty shure that noone here could calculate the correct force, a falling climber causes. The calculation would be way to complicated. We have such things as wind resistance, heat, friction, and the properties of the rope (wich is not just hooks law), so please stop it.

Oh, and for anyone interested, here is a pretty good article about the newton.

I think oldguy53 gets his jollies by kicking over anthills to watch the ensuing pandemonium. 4 pages in one day, not a bad troll...

The Newton (aka Fig Roll in Europe) is a soft, cake-like cookie (biscuit) filled with fig jam. A patented and trademarked product of Nabisco, Fig Newtons originated in the United States and have since spread across the world. They have traditionally been rather unique compared to similar products offered by competitors, but in recent times rivals have arisen, such as Wal-Mart's "Fig Bars", which are sold under its Great Value brand.

The Fig Newton was created in 1891 by Charles M. Roser of the Kennedy Biscuit Company, a Massachusetts-based bakery. The company named many of their products after surrounding communities. The Fig Newton was named after nearby Newton, Massachusetts. It was first simply called the Newton, but the name was changed to Fig Newton in 1898.

The Kennedy Biscuit Company merged with other regional bakeries in 1898 to form the National Biscuit Company, which later became Nabisco. The cookie is now produced by Nabisco.

The machine that makes the cookie consists of a funnel within a funnel. The inner funnel contains the filling, and the outer funnel contains the dough. The machine expresses a long length of filled cookie, which is then baked, cut into smaller pieces, and packaged.

WOW. A clear, concise, well organized history of the Newton. We are not worthy.

You know anything about the Marathon Bar? Can't seem to find them anymore.

Physicist amateur night continues...who's next on stage? :lol:
I once ate a slug of newtons :shock:

If it were true that it exerts a force of F=ma, then it wouldn't matter how far a climber falls before her fall is arrested, she will still exert the same force. This isn't the case.

once again we are confusing the acceleration downward due to gravity with the acceleration upward due to the rope arresting your fall. F=ma works perfectly for a falling climber as long as you know what "a" is.

F = number of Fig Newtons I eat.
ma = size of my ass

To say that an object with a mass of 980 Newtons weighs 100 kg is true iff that object is at rest on Earth's surface.

Another example is to say that an astronaut can step on a scale here on Earth where gravity is 9.8 m/s^2 and weighs 98 kg. That same astronaut with the same mass stepping on the same scale on the Earth's moon where gravity is 1.6 m/s^2 would weigh only 16 kg.

Do they just not teach you about the metric system over there? Please stop this. It is making me cry! :(

No, they do. It's just that there are retards everywhere.

A newton is unit of force, metric style. There's an equation out there, developed by Sir Isaac Newton, which says force is equal to mass times acceleration. So if you weighed 200 pounds, that means your mass is about 90 kilograms. Acceleration is 9.81 meters/second squared. That means that force you'll create falling through the air is less than 900 newtons, so your caribeaner thats rated for 25000 newtons would surely hold you. And that's pretty much all you need to know.

um... no

A Cubit is marked on every tape measure at 19 3/16 inches.

And 60 mph is .16128 megafurlongs per fortnight. Most people don't know that. Cool

You also responded to a post that is 1.89216e+16 shake (or six years) old.
