- Wait, did you just claim Sauron was an elf and that it was him…
Yea, I have no idea why I wrote Sauron.
It's clearly Feanor that I meant, because Sauron is not an elf.
- Because we know how to use google.
David Hameron Ought be...
- Waste? Now the slice has essence of booty.
- It means your parents are disappointed in you.
I met a girl with twelve...
exactly, except in this case "twelve breasts"
- Go kiss girls you ******* heterosexual
- They're GG Allin fans, so they're probably riddled wit…
I would choose the left one
- Why would you need to nail the buckets to the table? All you n…
Cuz troll physics
Assuming the array has not previously been charged, there is no electricity to turn the bulb on.
Assuming the bulb is somehow lit, only a fraction of the light emitted would be converted to energy as the rest would radiate away from the panel.
Assuming the light is directed in such a way that all of it strikes the array, there is still energy that is lost to heat in the filament.
Assuming that there is no heat loss in the lightbulb or in the wires connecting it to the battery and all of the energy is perfectly translated between the bulb and the panel, then the lightbulb could, in theory, power itself indefinitely, assuming the solar cell never wears down. But nothing could be hooked up to it because it would only have enough energy to keep the lightbulb glowing.
Energy out can't be greater than energy in.
Can you even joke?
Troll physics doesn't mean jack to a physics major. I spent an entire semester on work-energy relations alone.
Also I'm no fun at parties because I can prattle on about this shit when I'm drunk and still fascinate myself.
OOH look a physics major! Good thing we have you to explain that this can't work.
>Not fun at parties
We don't know that. You're not the kind of guy who gets invited to parties.
Yeah, but that's because I have an account on an image sharing website. Even physics majors get invited to fun stuff sometimes.
10% of light from bulb hits solar panel
20% of light hitting panel gets turned into electrical energy
5% of electrical energy used by bulb gets turned into light
Overall efficiency: 0.1%
thats why we build 1000 of them so we get 100% efficiency.
