  1. Do sparks disappear into nothingness?
    Sparks, a something can never disappear into nothingness, No! Something never becomes nothing, and nothing never becomes something.
  2. In "The Ring of Truth" film it says we overindulge the eye when we think that most matter is _______ to us. The error is that if we can't see something that it doesn't _______.
    In "The Ring of Truth" film it says we overindulge the eye when we think that most matter is visible to us. The error is that if we can't see something that it doesn't exist.
  3. What substance was given off by the candle and collected on the bottom of the spoon? (Film "The Ring of Truth")
    The substance given off by the candle and collected on the bottom of the spoon was Soot (ash). The substance that came from the flame and condensed on the blade of the knife was water.
  4. Air is usually ignored. How much air is required for each gallon of gasoline that a car uses?
    Each gallon of gas you burn requires a roomful of air.
  5. What simple experiment proved that substance is taken away when matches burn? (Film-"The Ring of Truth")
    Put the matches on a scale (balance) and watch them become lighter as they burn is an experiment that will prove that substances taken away during the combustion process.
  6. Was substance taken away when the Alka-Seltzer fizzed? How did this differ when a lid was added? (Film-"The Ring of Truth")
    Yes. Substance was taken away from the Alka-Seltzer fizz. When a lid was added (sealing the jar) the weight stays the same.
  7. When the experimental box, with all of the contraptions inside doing all of those crazy changes was started, what happened to the weight of the entire sealed box? (Film-"The Ring of Truth")
    The weight of the entire chamber remained unchanged.
  8. The pillar on an idea in 18th century science was that with any change of matter the overall _______ does not change! The ________ theory of matter explains this by saying that substance is always in balance, and that change is merely a _______ of matter!
    The pillar on an idea in 18th century science was that with any change of matter the overall weight does not change! The atomic theory of matter explains this by saying that substance is always in balance, and that change is merely a re-arrangement of matter!
  9. On what two sources of energy do the organisms of the sealed glass sphere depend? (Film-"Ring of Truth")
    The organisms in the sealed jar were dependent on Heat and Light energy.
  10. What is it that seals the Earth like a glass sphere? Is the earth's weight constant?
    Gravity Seals the Earth like a glass sphere; Yes, the Earth's weight is thought to be constant.
  11. The Tour de France bike race was discussed in some detail. there were 32 jelly donuts used by each biker per day. What were the three kinds of energy forms generated from the JD units, how many were used for each exertion?
    • The three kinds of energy forms generated from jelly donuts were:
    • Overcoming friction= 1-2 jelly donuts
    • Moving the air aside= 6-8 jelly donuts
    • Heat loss= the rest (most) of the jelly donuts
  12. The 2nd great idea of account of the 19th century was not only the concept of energy, but also that it cannot disappear into nothingness or ________ from nothingness; energy is also a something.
    The 2nd great idea of account of the 19th century was not only the concept of energy, but also that it cannot disappear into nothingness or appear from nothingness; energy is also a something.
  13. How does the biker diet differ from yours or mine? Why don't bikers gain weight? 
    The bikers eat about three-times (3x) more than us and do not gain weight.
  14. Can you burn organic matter? Are the gas products the same from both body and fire?
    Yes, organic matter is what you burn. Yes, the gas products (carbon dioxide and water) of respiration and combustion are the same.
  15. If you become dehydrated, what happens to your body heat? What physical event must happen in order to carry away excess heat generated by your body during exercise?
    If you become dehydrated your body heat goes up. Evaporation of water is the physical event that must happen in order for you to carry away excess heat.
  16. The overall lesson of energy is that the energy account is always in ________, when struck properly in every example of change.
    The overall lesson of energy is that the energy account is always in balance, when struck properly in every example of change.
  17. In going back to the crazy box, what three forms of energy are leaving it? (Film-"Ring of Truth")
    The three forms of energy that left the box were sound, light, heat.
  18. Einstein said that matter= _______.
    Einstein said that matter= Energy.
  19. Why don't we detect the loss of weight during energy changes?
    We don't detect the loss in weight during energy changes because the weight change is so small that we don't have a sensitive enough balance to measure it.
  20. The amount of weight gained by a winding spring would be _______ of the dot over the "i" of Phil's name. (Film- "The Ring of Truth")
    The amount of weight gained by a winding spring would be one one-billionth of the dot over the "i" of Phil's name.
  21. When energy and matter are viewed as a "joint account," is there still a balance that is constant and unchanging?
    Yes, when energy and matter are viewed as a "joint account" there is still a balance that is constant and unchanging.
  22. Craters are the result of ________ impact, which hold the key to the theory of how the earth was formed.
    Craters are the result of meteorite impact, which hold the key to the theory of how the earth was formed.
  23. Are craters from meteorite impact found throughout our solar system?
    Yes, craters from meteorite impacts are found throughout our solar system.
  24. Why has the imprint of meteorite impacts largely disappeared on the earth?
    The imprint of meteorite impacts have largely disappeared because of weathering (erosion activities) has washed them out.
  25. The solar system began when a disk of dust and gas condensed, with the center giving birth to the _______. What else did this dust and gas condense into? 
    The solar system began when a disk of dust and gas condensed, with the center giving birth to the sun. Planetesimals were also given rise to.
  26. How many planetesimals were there in our solar system?
    Over 100 Trillion planetesimals were present in the early solar system.
  27. How many earth craters have been identified?
    Over 100 craters have been identified on Earth.
  28. Was the Earth ever pockmarked with craters like the our moon?
    Yes, the Earth was pockmarked with craters like our moon?
  29. In what year was a meteorite crater first identified as such. Which crater was it?
    The first meteorite crater, the Barringer crater, was identified in 1904.
  30. A meteorite of what size created the Barringer crater, which is 640 feet deep and 3/4 of a mile wide?
    The meteorite that created the Barringer crater, which is 640 feet deep and 3/4 of a mile wide was a mere 100 feet in diameter.
  31. When a meteorite strikes, what rises in the air?
    When a meteorite strikes, sand and molten materials are flung high into the atmosphere.
  32. As a planet increases in size it exerts a stronger pull of _______, which attracts more meteorites at increasing ________, which melts the crust, while the interior (core) heats up from ________.
    As a planet increases in size it exerts a stronger pull of gravity, which attracts more meteorites at increasing speeds, which melts the crust, while the interior (core) heats up from radiation.
  33. What liquid is trapped within some meteorites and can be extracted when you heat it? (This is a characteristic substance of this planet, and it changed the face of the Earth.) Initially what happened to this substance?
    Water is the liquid that is trapped within meteorites. Water was initially trapped within the core, came to the surface and evaporated into the atmosphere, condensed, and it began to rain.
  34. Where are the light minerals and compounds found on the earth? Where are the heavy ones found? Is iridium a light or heavy element, and where should it be found on the earth?
    Light compounds and minerals are found on the crust or surface of the earth, while the heavier elements are in the interior or core. Iridium is a heavy element and should be found in the Earth's core, not on its surface 65 million years ago.
  35. What force keeps our clouds from dissipating into space?
    The force that keeps our clouds from dissipating into space is gravity.
  36. After the surface of our plant cooled, what landmark event occurred?
    The landmark event that ocurred after the surface cooled was rain.
