If air resistance is negligible then terminal velocity is the velocity of shock waves?
Asked in Car Batteries, Electrical Engineering
Will you get a electric shock when the negative terminal of the dc power supply is grounded and the positive terminal is held by us?
How do ants survive a huge fall what technology do they have that humans do not?
Ants have a couple of things going for them, but mainly physics of airflow. In essence the terminal velocity of an ant in air is much slower than that of a human. Terminal velocity is the speed and which air resistance forces counter balance gravity and you do not accelerate (go any faster) anymore while falling. The terminal velocity of an ant is about 4 mph whereas a human is well over 100 mph. So an ant has much less of an impact speed when it hits the ground. The other thing (although minor after impact speed) that helps is an ant body is more deformable than a humans and able to absorb shock better.

Asked in Airplanes and Aircraft
What is the velocity of an airplane made up of?
Velocity is simply the fancy word- more scientific for speed. One speaks, for example of the muzzle velocity of a firearm- actually that of the bullet discharged. Aircraft speedometers- usually called by airmen Air Speed Indicators work on the measurement of the plane"s shock wave and have pitot and static tubes- the shock wave is always proportional to the craft"s velocity. Speeds in Mach factors are relative to the speed of sound- 760MPh at sea level- hence Mach"s constant. At higher altitudes, owing to reduced wind resistance ( less atmosphere to buck, so to speak) it is much lower.

What doesn't affect the severity of an electrical shock?
The sun coming up in the morning, the rain falling from the sky could both be correct answers to the question. In a double negative answer, there is nothing that doesn't affect the severity of an electrical shock. The fact that you are getting the electrical shock is proof of that. The intensity of the shock will be governed by the internal resistance of your body and the points of contact where the voltage enters and leaves the body.
