I’m a knitter and I am attempting to make a blanket using squares, one for each day of the year. I’m also adding four squares to spell out the year as well as twelve, one for each month. That means I’m knitting 377 squares. A standard queen size blanket is either 90 by 90 inches or 90 by 100 inches.

- How many rows would I need?
- How many squares per row?
- How big do I need to make each square?

I’m also okay with making a throw blanket which would be 60 by 50 inches if that’s easier to calculate.

I've heard of something to do with pixels of in image, but I can't find that source again, and even if I could, I can't do that on my own.

With the Dolphins/Chiefs game coming up, I'm curious to know how much it would cost (including the dimensions it would need to be) the Dolphins to build a giant freezer their players could comfortably practice in to prepare for the cold Arrowhead stadium. (Assuming they built it in advance, and not the day before the game tomorrow haha)

I use an electric fan with our burner (door closed of course), but I can't decide which is the optimum set up.

The fan has 3 speeds:

on the highest speed I figure the airflow is faster and so travels further but won't spend as much time being heated.

On the lowest speed I figure the airflow is slower and so won't travel as far but (possibly) spends fractionally more time being heated.

Middle is the middle one!

Which, if any, is the more effective usage?

I’m working on a fanfic project and I have to calculate the BSA (Body Surface Area) for various fictional characters. The problem is that data on the weights of most fictional characters is completely nonexistent. Honestly the only example I’ve been able to find is All Might, giving us a BSA of 3.95 m^2.

One thing that is more common, particularly for female characters (I know 🙄,) is the body measurements of Bust, Waist, and Hips. Does anyone know of a way to utilize measurements to make the calculation of either weight, and/or in turn BSA, more definitive?

In the game Final Fantasy X, the main 'minigame' is called Blitzball, which is essentially a mix of rugby and football (soccer for Americans) played underwater.

In this mini game, it is possible for someone to kick the aforementioned blitzball from one end of the field to the other end to score a goal.

How much force would the main character, Tidus, have to have exerted in a kick to successfully accomplish this goal in the time it shows you for the blitzball to travel from one goal post into the opposing one?

If someone can solve this and show me the proof, I might have a prize for them, given how long I've wondered about this.

Edits: Some new info I've collected based on people asking:

- The goal to goal distance is roughly 211 feet.
- The ball's density would have to be a bit more than that of water.
- The ball travels from one goal post to the other at a rate of approx. 12 miles per hour.

Watching the Monarch/Godzilla TV show(so slight spoiler ahead), and at one point a kaiju takes a nuclear blast, basically to the face. However we also know this creature can(very slowly) be damaged by physical impacts and conventional weapons. Which got me wondering- for a typical nuclear device, how far from ground zero does the bast dissipate enough that it's equal to the force generated by conventional missiles/munitions.

I'm designing a game with a simplified, ideal gas law driven simulation of pressure and gas composition.

Pressure of a container is calculated in-game as pressure(pascals) = (total moles of gas * temperature in kelvin * ideal gas constant) / volume of pressure vessel. With this approach. the only variables being directly interacted with and changed by code are the number of moles and the temperature.

I need a way to calculate how many moles of gas per second will flow given the pressure of two vessels and the area of the hole connecting them, for simulating leaks, breaches, valves in bottles being opened, and airlocks.

Hi! Im in need of some math wizards to help me build an equation for my 20 year old point and click game (runescape).

The goal is to find out how much sand and seaweed would be needed to get a certain amount of experience, while accounting for the experience gained from turning it into glass, then blowing that glass into things. That being said, ill give some values to base off of.

You get 1.6 molten glass on average per bucket of sand. You need 3 seaweed per 18 buckets of sand. You get 55 xp per molten glass by blowing it into lenses. You also get 10 xp per bucket of sand in the conversion process. How many buckets of sand would be needed to get 1.67 million xp?

Thanks! I know theres an equation there but my brain melts when i try to piece it together.

Imagine you have 1,000,000 cubic feet of sand. You want to spread it evenly over 144,000,000 square feet of land. How deep would the layer of sand be?

Measuring in feet or inches.

Clark W. Griswold's Christmas light display contains 25,000 lights. The film clearly shows that they're mostly the large C7 size. An incandescent C7 uses about 5 watts, meaning every hour, that display uses 125,000 watts, or 125 kilowatt-hours. In 2023, residential electricity in Chicagoland is about $.16/ kilowatt-hour.

So each hour costs $20. If he runs the lights for four hours a day for the 30 days preceeding and including Christmas, then the five days after, taking them down on January 1st, it'll cost $2,800 in electricity to be a "good" dad.
