because flashing potential is potential at which the neon bulb just start conducting or glowing ....while at quenching potential the bulb stops conducting.

to avoid the high internal stresses caused by quenching and to get tempered Martensite that is less brittle

Bad sectors will be there in pendrives?

As with any storage medium, there is always the potential for failure. Since flash drives are a type of solid state drive, the potential for failure is arguably less. However, no storage medium is immune to failure.

Why will the center of gravity always swing underneath its support point?

Because at that position, the object has the least potential energy. Objects tend to go to positions where they have less energy.

Is kinetic energy always less than the potential energy?

noYes they can, in a solution of a single type of atoms, at absolute zero; This is the point at which something physically has zero energy (none in the molecules whatsoever), and there would be no potential energy in the bonds between molecules

Does stable always mean more order can we reach a more stable state with less potential energy but with more disorder?

Stable means a minimum of Gibbs free energy. Potential energy comes in many flavors, but an example of less potential energy and more disorder is the death of an organism. While it is alive, it is full of potential, and order, and is at a sort of steady state. If it is dead, disorder sets in and it approaches an equilibrium state. The issue is entropy and the second law of thermodynamics.

Can rubber bullets kill you?

Originally, they were billed as "less than lethal" munitions. However, they're called "less lethal" now, because it's been discovered that they, in fact, can kill. You have an object moving at a high velocity impacting against the human body - the potential for lethality will always be there, just as the potential for a person to be killed by a baseball which hits them exists.

What is a energy of a object has because of its location or its condition?

"potential" energy.

Crossing a level crossing on red light?

Well it all depends on how long the red lights have been flashing. If you cross when they have been flashing for 10+ seconds there is a risk of you being killed. If it's been flashing for less than 10 seconds you might just escape with your life. I advise you not to try it anyway.
