More on the curvature of the Earth 2018-04-23
will pose la question :
the formula for figuring the earth's curve goes against logic, looking at a fixed point and backup 1mi. the point drops 8" then 16" in the next mi. and 32" in the third mi. why shouldn't it be 24" why is the 8" per mi. squared can you tell me in laymens terms why this is it goes against logic it would seem the correct wat would be to add up 8" per mile as you back up from the fixed point 8"- 16"- 24"- 32" not 8/16/32/64"

Prove the earth is round 2016-01-30
Kevin pose la question :
Working on a project for a science fair.
To prove the earth is round without the ability to get way above the surface.
How could we set up and experiment to see the curve.
My thought is using a telescope at the beach?
Form what we see so far the curve is 8 inches per mile?
So thought is set up a telescope and a target 1 mile away?

Distance seen 2008-03-18
Nev pose la question :
formule: Distance Seen
S = 1.225 x square root of H
S = Distance seen in Miles
H = Height in Feet

What dose 1.225 Relate To ?
