51962Re: water ballast vs lead, iron, etc
- Dec 2, 2006My boat stability project has reached the point where it must go
dormant till I get collaborators. The price a professor pays for doing
"trivial" research is that it must focus on education. Anybody who can
contribute is welcome to apply.
I need someone who either did well in high school physics, geometry,
and algebra, or who has strengthened these skills in college. Most
college graduates have poor writing skills, but anybody who can
write can be prinicpal author on a paper to AJP (American Journal of
Physics). A high school student with a parent who can write, along
with somebody who knows boats and can run hull stability software,
would make an awesome team! Though most papers in AJP have one author,
I think they will like the diversity and perhaps even physical
remoteness of those who solve this problem.
See "Stiffness of an Advanced Sharpie" on my homepage at
P.S. AJP pays authors ten times what I hear they pay contributors to
MAIB, which is nothing.
