### Spanish experiment

Thanks Lasse Can you try to estimate the "spring stiffness" by measuring a deflection of the elastic for a reasonable mass Thanks, Merlin Hi Elastic Weight 15 cm ------ 0 gram 15,4 ------- 7,5 15,8 -------- 15 16,9 -------- 30 19,4 -------- 60 29,0 ------- 120 I have the increments for increasing w...

### Changing student's style

Hi Lasse Going back to Bernds original question Maybe I was seriously crap but it took a lot of work to change what I was doing and as a service provider, you have to sell the benefits. If you turn around and say this will take 10 lessons and cost £xxx, many would give up before they started. How d...

### Changing student's style

Is it possible to make a radical change in a single lesson that sticks,or is it student dependent? In my experience, it's not possible.. A lesson is just the prelude to practicing on your own. Without practice very few get better Hi Lasse, doesn't that mean it IS possible, if "only" you can motivat...

### Spanish experiment

I understand that Lasse has strated his own experience, so thanks to you Lasse if you can provide us with the parameters of your experiment (spring stiffness, masses, height of fall). Merlin Hi Spring stiffness? It's a normal household elastic :) Brick on table= 28,1 grams Weight pulling brick= 74,...

### Spanish experiment

Hi Gordon Sorry, but I did the experiment on a much lower table (0,9m), and with a shorter string, basicly the brick on the string launched of the table before the brick on the spring, I couldn't determine which went furtest as both where still on a string.... And just redone the experiment... Longe...

### Spanish experiment

Anyway, after weeks of asking I don't have any clear reply to an easy question. Again and for the last time: - Two identical bricks on a table - Two identical weights - One spring - One inelastical string One weight is connected to the brick by the inelastic string; the other one is connected to th...

Hi Vince

In my experience, it's not possible.. A lesson is just the prelude to practicing on your own. Without practice very few get better and I think that goes for anything someone wants to be better at

Cheers

### Changing student's style

I want people to learn all styles because they all have their applications, they are all just different ways of putting together the same principles and i want them to understand that. Morsie Completly agree :cool: In my style demo's I emphasise that the majority of styles out there are born form a...

### New Board Software

Secondly, I just lost a long reply due to a timeout of the webpage??? Is this something I can change under settings or is it a setting you need to change?

Cheers
