Mathematically, the formula for the series of each halving of the distance will be 5/(2^n) from n=0 to n=infinity. As |r| < 1 the series diverges and the entire distance traveled is the sum of this series. The formula for the entire distance traveled is a/(1-r) where a=5 and r=0.5 (from 5/(2^n)) So the total distance traveled is 5/(1-0.5)=10. Sorry if this is hard to follow, it made more sense in my brain.TheGeneralhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14213637249389788622noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2051733680050277913.post-73748559444882360442011-04-06T22:53:05.064-07:002011-04-06T22:53:05.064-07:00Nope it wont.

Strings(1D) in String theory exist at this level. <br />Any length shorter than Planck length makes no sense given the laws of physics and quantum mechanics that are agreed upon by the scientific community today. That's just a quick guess though. However, it would seem like the general consesus here is no. But then again if we're looking at it on a atomic level, what vashrave said would be true. I'm curious to know the answer.Mikehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13355296386122609274noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2051733680050277913.post-55665245989881457872011-04-06T12:56:22.714-07:002011-04-06T12:56:22.714-07:00A picture would be appreciated, didn't get the...A picture would be appreciated, didn't get the problem :(Joubzhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11446207553054306396noreply@blogger.com
