Physics people...
Posted By: Vid BoiDate: 6/13/02 8:08 a.m.

Obviously there are some people here who know things that are completely useless except for when analyzing Marathon. But if you know something that useless, you must also know some basic physics! My physics teacher and I disagree: when an object is accelerating, is its velocity moving away from zero, or if the velocity increasing? (ie when a car is acceleratig backwards, it it accelerating at all, or decelerating?)

(In case you're wondering, I'm the one who says accelerating is when abs(v) is moving away from 0)
