Oldiesmann: I must not have set the permissions correctly for that board when I set the site up again a few years ago (long story - there was a server crash years ago and no backup, so we had to start over from scratch). I'll fix it soon.

A JIB is the support for a sail (I think, maybe, perhaps a foresail)

Jane, not quite the answer I'm looking for, can you delve a bit deeper?

What is the Jib's purpose?

angelface555

Don, this is the full question.

What is a ventricle and why is it important?

Kelly

Hi angel
Are we still on one answer each.

Kelly

angelface555

Kelly I wanted to give the night crew a chance as well such as Bubble.

After this is answered, see -

An interesting image.

Hi angel
Good thinking

Kelly

JaneS

Nope! no more answer.  I got that much out of my head from movies and books.  I think it has something to do with more speed or keeping the course.  I guess someone can take this one from me.

The ventricle is one of 2 upper cavities or chambers in the heart and it helps pump the blood to the lungs  for one or back for the other.

angelface555

 :thumbup: Yes! You've got it!

angelface555

Now each person can try one more each.

2.  Whose design is credited for the first windmill?

6.   What is the Jib's purpose?

7.   Give me a simple explanation for string theory.

10.  Is Asia in the Northern hemisphere?


so_P_bubble

A jib is a triangular sail that can swing to catch the wind.

It can also be a device with a counter weight to the camera that make it swing up and down or sideways.

I don't know which you meant!

Kelly

Hi angel
Question 10
I think yes is the answer.

Though parts of Indonesia lie in the Eastern hemisphere.

So it could be said parts of Asia lie in both the Northern and Eastern hemispheres.

Kelly 

angelface555

Bubble you are correct with the sail answer. Thank you! Generally, a jib's most crucial function is as an airfoil, increasing performance and overall stability by reducing turbulence on the main sail's leeward side.

Kelly you are also correct!

The equator or the 0 degrees latitude divides the Earth into the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Large parts of Asia lie to the north of the equator. The Prime meridian or 0 degrees longitude divides the Earth into the Eastern and Western hemispheres. Asia lies to the east of the Prime meridian. The density of population in Asia is high. Asia has 48 countries and two countries, Russia and Turkey, lie in Europe too. China and India, two of the most populated countries, lie in Asia.

Finishing this quiz;

2.  Whose design is credited for the first windmill?

7.   Give me a simple explanation for string theory.





Marilyne

#2: the windmill?  Would be either Greece or China? I'll go with the Greek - Heron of Alexandria?

angelface555

You're close Marilyne, but no cigar as yet.

Marilyne

Close? That must mean the country is China, or maybe Holland?
I'll do a little research and return later. :D

so_P_bubble

I was thinking of Mesopotamia.  Maybe that is too early.

Kelly

Hi Angel
I thought the windmill design was by Leonardi Di Vinci

Kelly

so_P_bubble

The more modern one/mechanical  was, Kelly.

Kelly

Question
String theory

Was it to combine the four fundamental known interactions.  Being gravitation, electromagnetism, strong nuclear force, week nuclear force into one theory

Kelly

so_P_bubble

such a complex theory that is hard to resume in a few words.

angelface555

Bubble you are also close but not quite there.

no Kelly....think simple.

bubble, basic or simple....

Kelly

Hi angel
That is what Albert Einstien was trying to do.  I think he was trying to have a Theory of Everything (TOE)

Kelly

Kelly

Unless you mean the Big Bang Theory

Kelly

angelface555

There is a very simple explanation of string theory. I have 9:04 am and I will give everyone a little over an hour before I will close this quiz and give Kelly or someone else a turn.

Kelly

Hi angel
Hopefully I will have a quiz ready in about seven hours time.
