dnd 5e - can you push someone upwards into the air?


no, to both. when you're each on the ground that's not “pushing”, that's “throwing”, and the ability to push someone doesn't grant the ability to throw them upwards. an ability that allows throwing will specify so, and give details about height as well as distance, just like the rules covering jumping do.this agrees with an official rules answer from the designer on the subject of pushing upwards, so you don't just have to take my word for it:@jeremyecrawford second question: can the knock back granted by open hands flurry of blows be used to push the target vertically?pushing someone away requires the whole move to be away from you. a diagonal push works. vertical doesn't. #dndnote that i said "ground" too: in flight and other 3d movement contexts, pushing naturally includes every directi






how does capacitor work ? how do they conduct electricity ?


charges don't flow through the capacitor. current flow isn't so much the passing of one electron from one side of a conductor to the other as it is one electron pushing the next in line. consider a tube filled with ping pong balls. if you push one in at one end, you'll see one pop out of the other end. is it the same ping pong ball you just pushed in? no, but it was pushed out by the rest of the balls in the tube.adjusting olin's analogy a bit, if you cut the tube in half and put a piece of rubber in the middle, and glue everything back together so that it looks like the original tube, but with a rubber barrier in the center, than you have what is effectively a capacitor. if you push one ping pong ball in one end, it will push the rest of the balls, flex the rubber, and push one out on...






newtonian mechanics - someone explain the concept of normal force and its direct


normal force is a "holding back" force.place an apple on a table, and the table holds it up. this "holding up" force is always perpendicular, which is why it is called the normal force ("normal to" means "perpendicular to").any surface will hold back against something that pushes on it (unless it breaks), like this weight of an apple, and that "hold back" force is given the name normal force.why is the value of normal force equal to mg even though it is acting opposite to earth's gravity? should it be -mg?forget about that right away! this is not true. it might be in some cases, but it is not a general rule. never say that normal force must be $mg$. never say that it must be anything - it depends on the situation every time.the apple on the table has a weight $w=mg$. the table must hold ba

a kickstand is the most interesting feature on acer's new 2-in-1


adjusting the kickstands on competing convertibles (like the surface) requires you to lift or prop up the device and push the stand out. the switch 5's setup makes it a lot more convenient to adjust your screen's angle while you're looking at it. you just have to push down on the device (which i did with just one finger) as you would on a regular laptop.acer has done a good job balancing the kickstand's resistance here. it doesn't take too much force to push the switch down to a lower angle, nor is it too easy to move out of place by accident. the stand is reminiscent of the surface studio's adjustable hinge, although acer's offering is less sophisticated. in line with the company's previous superthin switch 7 laptop, though, the new device has a pleasantly slim profile and a premi...

thermodynamics - why can electric cars recoup energy from braking, but a spacesh


think about the momentum in the two situations. in any closed system, momentum must be conserved. when you accelerate a car, you push the earth in the opposite direction with exactly the same momentum. when you want to slow down (which again is acceleration, just in direction opposite to motion), you again push the earth, and it will be accelerated in the opposite direction. since the earth is much more massive than the car, the acceleration on the earth is tiny, which makes earth easy to push from (compare jumping on concrete with jumping on a bit of foam - the concrete is almost unyielding, which gives you a lot of leverage).the braking and acceleration are symmetric in this case - when accelerating, you make the car move faster relative to the ground, when braking, you make it slower re

nra sees donald trump jr. as ally in push to deregulate silencers


firearm advocates may have found a key ally in donald trump jr. as they push to make suppressors easier to buy. the national rifle association and other advocates are turning to the 39-year-old real estate scion as they seek to loosen restrictions on the devices, commonly known as silencers, according to mcclatchy. in a 38-minute video with salt lake city-based silencerco. released before the election, trump jr. endorses silencers — citing how they can protect a user's hearing.

john legend joins push to close rikers island

icahn’s push to ditch epa rule could crush speculator market


carl icahn’s effort to push regulatory compliance off the backs of gas refiners is killing energy patch speculators.icahn, who owns cvr energy, a relatively small refiner, wants the trump administration to force fuel blenders — and not refiners — to comply with an obscure epa rule that enforces ethanol mandates.complying with the epa renewable energy rules could cost cvr $250 million this year, according to bloomberg — even though icahn’s refinery doesn’t blend ethanol into gas.the cost is tied to cvr and other relatively small refiners having to buy renewable identification numbers, or rins, as proof they blended gas.rin prices had been soaring last year as speculators bought them up.but if icahn’s push to have blenders and not refiners tackle the cost of rins, speculators w...

find fibonacci series upto a given maximum in javascript


your loop can terminated in a few different ways. you're using a boolean loop, but there are cleaner ways.one is to simply move the if condition to the while condition (malachi's answer beat me to this):while (fib[i-1] + fib[i-2] <= max) { i = fib.push(fib[i-1] + fib[i-2]); } push helpfully returns the array's new length, so you don't need the i++.another is to keep the if branching, but use it to break the loop instead:while (true) { var next = fib[i-1] + fib[i-2]; if (next > max) { break; // exit the loop } i = fib.push(next); } here we avoid calculating the new fibonacci number twice, but still: the previous code block is probably still the cleanest.you also initialize i to 2, which is a bit redundant: it's the length of the fib array. rather than manually initializing the array,
