Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

Can someone put a few pics up showing these different grip styles please?

Cheers,

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Hi Paul, As I said way back in this thread somewhere, the only things I want from physics are the ability to explain what I observe and the ability to predict outcomes of new actions. This does both for me, so yes, I'm sticking with it until something better comes along. Coming up with special physi...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

The differences I'm asking you to define are about when the wave became a loop. You said "I would say it’s when the amplitude becomes significantly greater than the tip travel." I've asked if there were any other differences between when it was obviously a wave and when it was a loop. I would like y...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

I don't know. I want to see where the line actually goes. But if you don't want to come up with other differences besides amplitude, that's fine. I'll assume you don't find that very interesting and leave it standing there. To me, if amplitude is the only thing you can find to differentiate a transv...

No I don’t think that the difference is only Amplitude! That’s just me casting on the roof :pirate:
Okay, well what are the other differences? Please analyse the actions you're making and itemise the differences in addition to amplitude that turn it from a transverse wave to a loop.

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

I think the loop propagates in the direction the force was applied to the line, and the reason it falls to ground is because of gravity. Cheers, Paul Besides this "loop wave", can you find any examples of a mechanical wave* propagating in the direction the force was applied in? Cheers, Graeme * tha...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Hi Graeme, I have of course done this before and I’ve just done it again. I would say it’s when the amplitude becomes significantly greater than the tip travel. Sometimes it’s difficult to find the exact point when one thing ends and another begins. Okay, so for you the difference between a transve...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Why such theatrical comments Graeme, you don't want to write in the physics sub-forum, but even you first posting contains a lot of physics terms. I was quite happy discussing this in the physics forum in a thread about this very thing, until you started another thread specifically excluding discus...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Try standing on the roof of your boat and making those waves. Gradually increase the length of pause at the end of each impulse and then try to work out when it became a cast.
