So I'm trying to imagine the dot product intuitively and I'm wondering if it would be right to think of the dot product, if we're using two vectors A and B (imagine that there's an arrow over those letters), as the multiplied amount vector A is in the B direction or vice versa since it's the same value. like when I try to do the dot product I align one of the vectors on an axis and project the other vector onto the axis-aligned vector and the length of that is the amount the projected vector is in the direction of the axis-aligned vector. I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7788694 The dot product can be intuitively understood as the area of a rectangle with one side one of the vectors and the other side the orthogonal projection of the other vector onto that vector. Or it can be understood as half of the difference between the areas of squares formed by two vectors and the area of the square formed by their difference. The former tells us that the dot product of a vector with itself is the area of a square formed by that vector, which leads to the latter understanding, and the latter understanding...

We beat cancer by accepting the fact that it is not one disease, theres is hundred of different cancer. The we do what we are doing ritgh now : trying to find better radiotherapy/chemo/surgery protocol, investing in antibody/chemo/radiotherapy research, working on in vivo DNA alteration... Nowaday evything is about targeted antibdies (Erceptin anyone ?) but my own shitty and arbitrary opinion would be that in vivo DNA alteration is the way to go in the long term. Imagine b eing able to find a procancerous mutation and cure it before you have a cancer ? We are going there with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7788715 I feel it's a bit of a misnomer to call it a disease. Like, things caused by virus or bacteria can be diseases. Addictions are addictions, not diseases. Cancer, Alzheimer's, MS and such, aren't really the same thing are they? Genetic maldunctions? I don't know.
How big is the universe? If you could behold all the universe from afar, would you see some colossal pattern?
How small do things go? What makes up the things that makeup the things that make up atoms?
If there a type of "life" on these mega and quantum foam levels which incorporates the sums of the human-known universe as its parts?
We will never ever know these answers. They may as well be >>>/x/ related for all it really matters. But, damn it, can we discuss things we know nothing about for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /sci/. I sure someone here ca help me. Im curious about how often any given locan may be recorded my satelite. Like for example would it be possible from some source for whatever cost, to be able to view satellite images of where I live on or near a given day.
How can i improve my thinking skills /sci/?Im going to start learning math from the beginning and read more books but are there other things of which i should be aware/add to my daily routine?Im also trying to fix my sleeping routine and eat more healthy.
I am writing a book and need information. If two people were on a place where gravity is half Earth's, I know they'd weigh half as much as normal. My question is this: would their punches still hold the strength of a punch on Earth? Would punching one another send them double the distance? And how would falling long distances work? Would the damage from hat be halved?
>>7788488 1) The punch should be equally strong in both environments, so the person in the lower gravity place will fly further. Only problem would be the lower gravity affecting the stance of the puncher. Lower gravity means lower friction between the ground and the puncher's feet. Imagine punching someone on an ice rink to see why this might be a problem.
2) Yes, falling will hurt half as much given half the gravity.
Hey /sci/ I was wondering if you help me build a crib sheet If you can could you explain how to do these things and the terms associated with them? If so I will try and give you a triforce >Expanding complex polynomials, [3(x-2)(3x+4)] >How to identify and factor out common factors in two or more >How to identify and factor the GCF out of a group of terms (simple or polynomial) >Factoring by grouping(4 terms) >Identifying...

Is it useful for anything or is it just hyped up bullshit touted by hippies and rave-goers? I know some people who claimed it helped them understand some Geometric concepts more easily. I personally understood fractal concepts more easily for some reason, but I think overall it's not all it's cracked up to be and it is potentially dangerous if used incorrectly.
Haven't done LSD, but I've done shrooms, and the general consensus seems to be that the two are quite similar. In which case, no it is not bullshit. Shrooms were a mind blowing experience and have really changed the way I think about the world and the way i see it in day to day life. Definitely had a lasting impact on me. As for whether it's useful, it depends on what you define as useful. It's useful for "opening" up your mind a bit and gaining a new perspective.
