You could do a bit of research as i can't remember the math's from my college days, but, it is possible to calculate the distance something travels by using its rate of descent against the time it takes to reach the ground, for instance, if gravity is measured at 9.81N/m per sec squared, then an object must speed up at the same rate from standstil every time unless the earths gravitational pull changed. If you then timed how long it takes to hit the ground you could do a simple calculation offsetting the rate of descent against time which would then give your distance. The calculation is - distance = speed x time, but you would need to factor in the the rate of change in the speed of the object from standstill to finish which is the bit i can't remember.

Which bars are healthier, Power Bars or Cliff Energy Bar?

Let's take a look at the nutritional differences between the two and then you can decide which one is better for your dietary needs. Calories wise, the Power Bar contains 250 calories and Cliff Energy Bars contain 230 calories. So not a big difference here. Regarding the amount of carbs and fats in each product, Power Bar contains 42 grams of carbs (20 gram of sugars) and 5 grams of fat (2.5 grams of saturated fat). Cliff Energy Bars contain 44 grams of carbs (23 grams of sugar) and 4.5 grams of fats (1.5 gram of saturated fat). Both bars contain 5 grams of fiber, which is 20% of the daily value of fiber for a 2,000 calories diet. Finally, Power Bars contain 10 grams of protein, while Cliff Energy Bars contain 9 grams of protein (protein is not really important for energy). So basically both bars have very similar nutritional values.

Is this bike to big for a 10 year old who is about 4'10 and weighs about 90-95 lbs?

I assume you want to get the right size for a Christmas present. Here's a suggestion. Tell him you need to measure him for pant. Have him straddle a broom handle that you hold horizontally. He should stand flat footed and the broom handle should be as high as you can raise it without pushing hard against him. If the end of the handle is touching the wall, make a pencil mark on the wall where it touches the wall. Then measure the distance of that mark from the floor. That measurement should be about the same as the distance from the bike's top-tube (the part of the bike frame between the seat and the handle-bars) and the ground. Essentially, you are measuring to see if the boy can straddle the top-tube of the bike with his feet flat on the ground. If he is growing fast, you might figure he can be a bit on his toes to straddle the top-tube. A realistic max height would be to straddle that tube with one foot flat and the other on his toes. Good luck!

The ads for this device state that it uses the Pythagorean theorem to figure the distance of a 3rd side, if you can measure the other 2 sides. I How do I use this feature?

1) There is a big difference between Bosch promo manual and Bosch operation manual:

2) Online promo manual says: Combined Indirect/Pythagoras for measuring total height from a distance

3) Online operation manual shows no instructions for Pythagoras measuring.
And shows no button for displaying E value or height.

4) Operation manual shows:
Length Measurement** and tells you to measure the height while promo says tool will calculate height E
Area Measurement*** shows rectangle only and not triangle
Volume Measurement
Area or Volume
Rounding of Large Calculations
Continuous Measurement (Tracking)

5) I would contact Bosch directly:

6) Until you get satisfaction from Bosch, the Bosch device gives precise menasurements that can be entered into a Pythagorean calculator online, which defeats the purpose of a jobsite tool: But you can access online calculator via cell phone while on jobsite.

Measuring a Building

This is a pretty odd question, i think you don't need to measure it, you can check the building plans.

If you insist on measuring it I think your best option is a Laser Measuring Device, they are the easist to use.

Enchanted climbing level help

I have made to the second climbing level but can't get rid of the giant monster.... It killed me 3 times................... For the first climbing level you have to go where the angry mushroom is and make Gisele walk between the wall and the small vine fence, The best way to do it is to make Gisele follow the wall by going against it. the rest is pretty easy just follow the instructions.( It's the wall on the right)
