If a guy from the 1st floor steps on one side of the beam balance
and a guy from the 5th floor jumps on the other side, they would
exchange positions due to conservation of energy.
How many times should they use the beam balance in order to
pair themselves on every floor?

#334053 Sticks Kinematics

Posted by TimeSpaceLightForce on 10 July 2013 - 05:51 PM

A yard stick was cut on 1 foot mark so that the other 2 footer stick cut can be placed on top of another yardstick to make it roll or pivot
on its ends and middle around (above and below) the yardstick clockwise.
While the 1 footer stick was placed on top of 2 footer stick to make it roll around it counterclockwise without touching the fixed yardstick.
Starting at position shown and same 1 RPM motion, how long will it take for the sticks to knock the ball down?

#332525 The Bank Job

Posted by TimeSpaceLightForce on 24 May 2013 - 10:06 PM

You just held up a bank on the corner of 6th & 7th avenue
and walked to your get away car but upon entering the car,
you've been spotted on the CCTV that alarmed the patrol
cars on the 3  corners of the area that is bounded by high
walls along the perimeter .     If all the vehicles are as
fast as each other and all streets and avenues are of same
span of one-way roads, where is the best intersection for
the get away car to be waiting for you in order to evade
the police cars in  hot pursuit?

#332358 Paper Scissors Rock

Posted by TimeSpaceLightForce on 19 May 2013 - 08:19 PM

The OP does not say there is a third contest, but I can see how it's implied.
"In a row" is redundant if not.

 No second contest neither,just best of 3 picks because there are six satchels.. sometimes out of the box can be away from the box.

 but i figured a third is the right chance of winning 2 in a row for the lucky  contestant..

There are satchels where 2 has  paper, 2 has scissors and 2 has rock inside.
2 contestants picks up one satchel each, open them to determine who wins.
Then picks up another to determine who wins. 2 wins is needed to determine  
the winner of the contest. What is the chance of winning 2 in a row ?
