    P.s I bet you never considered 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, etc , are also even numbers in some circumstances !

    3 is even either side to the center of 2 .

    5 is even either side to the center of 3 .

    And so on..........

    P.s Micro bang theory

    More specifically, if you cannot do at least calculus, you have NO chance of doing anything relevant to physics.

    I bet you don't even know what an even or odd number is.

    Of course not !

    An odd number is even either side of the center remainder !

    Which could be split into 1/2 to keep things even ;)

    How low do the odds drop if the person doing the "work" cannot even add or subtract negative numbers?

    I don't know why you are giving me the wink since even and odd are defined in integers.

    Well, given the amount of understanding shown in this thread, zero.

    Well, technically, you can define what it means to be 'even' in any integral domain: just that the element is a multiple of 2=1+1. And, in the Gaussian integers, it isn't the case that everything is either even or odd (1 plus a multiple of 2).

    Oh boy ! You keep insisting that numbers are like some magic ! There is also a difference in cannot and can't be bothered with something that is just a thread distraction that I have no need for .

    But what is the area of a pixel? How would you measure that? What if instead we used rectangles, there will be fewer of them to sum and we know that their area is length times width.

    Something like this:
    [​IMG]

    But as we can see those rectangle don't give us an exact number, we'll need to make them smaller and smaller until they fit the curve perfectly then calculate the area slice and add them all up. Still seems like a lot of work though, if only there was a convenient way to do that.

    Still one major problem: How do you plan to apply this approach from paper to real world applications? The area that you are summing is going to have to be in units that you can transfer to the real world. Also how do you account for another dimension? The world is not 2D, it is in super HD 3D.

    I didn't really think James is the right type of person to get into the nitty gritty with.

    It's like fitting carpet tiles , we template the edges .

    or, for that matter, even the wide generalities.

    Let's see how your methods would work.

    Say NASA has contracted you do design a solar panel for use on a Mars colony. Now they are going to need to know exact values, as they have to transport the equipment to Mars, and as you know moving cargo from Earth to space is not cheap. They also have provided you with past weather data on Mars, such as wind direction, air pressure, humidity and such, as they need a predictive model for solar energy so that they can optimize their operations around available solar energy on a day to day basis given changes in the whether.

    Show us how you plan to solve this problem without math.

    The solar design I provided will work in any size , obviously the bigger it is , the more energy it will produce .

    V= π r² h/3

    Which is simply Pi * diameter * height divided by 3

    That would be a start, base diameter determined by the angle of cone used of course .

    The size depends on how much energy you want to produce , we would have to build a small version first and see what the output was .

    Additionally I have another trick up my sleeve :)

    Fling nonsense will not help NASA get their Mars colony going. You have lost the contract and they gave it to someone that knows how to do the math.

    Face it, people that actually take the time to learn math can do things you'll never be able to do, unless you stop being so stubborn and learn math. Also your rejection of knowledge, in this case math, is not very in tune with being a scientist.

    The math I provided is from google for the volume of a cone , radius * 2 is diameter .

    I''ll invent , you can do your own maths , lazy scientists !

    I've done all the thinking for you and given you an efficient solar design with increased pE by adding a solid core .

    I'm giving up on science soon , I've got bored to be honest and it doesn't pay me to just post on forums all the time .

    I'm going just try and enjoy my life for what it is , My passion has gone now for all of it .

    You never had a passion for it.

    You've obviously not ''heard'' me in full flow on a science forum when I am telling them ''home truths'' . You have no idea that I've spent countless hours posting and trying to discuss science . I had a fire in my belly at one time , believe me .
