Excellent...I am going to strive myself to improve on my times and distance...hoping to do a 2000, 3000, 5000 and another 10000. I am still showing my best friend that I am not too old to do an iron butt ride... I hope he doesn't tell me I am too old to swim the atlantic....
I think my kidneys work well and I drink a lot of water on rides. I start with 2 gallons. My sister, an MD, tells me there is little danger because when pressure gets to a critical point you will release it. For reasons I do not understand, on the Wing,I can go all day without eating and without the bathroom when in real life neither is possible. I need to spend more days on the Wing.John
Might want to get that kidney function test before the next ride.
What did you learn about the history of E=mc2?
Good luck on your future rides.
It is squared because (like so many things in life) of a woman. Specifically Émilie du Châtelet (1706-1749). It is she who bucked the great thinkers of the day (including Newton) and showed that the energy of a moving object is proportional not to the velocity but the square of velocity.I asked a physicist why the " c " in E=mc2 is squared , as the speed of light travels 186,000 (+/-) miles/ second. He told me because it makes it universal. Suddenly, it all made sense.
