This is just what I expected. Rather than admit to a gross error that I told you about several months if not a year ago you attempt to evade
responsibility and now admit to an error in your calculations that you've been denying for approximately a year apparently because you think you're
smarter than everyone else...
Exponent DID NOT tell you how he did the calculations he just posted the result same as I did a long time ago.
That last sentence is flat out twisting of words. You try to give the readers the impression that you helped me. You did not, you just used the same
method as NIST, telling us that we are wrong, then do not give the computer calculations they based their opinion on.
At least they showed us a (totally impossible) computer animation of the collapse of WTC 7 that they arrived at by heighten the filled-in temperatures
and their duration at the few floors that it was burning, far out of reality.
You only repeated all the time that I was wrong, without proving to me why or giving me any clues whatsoever. That behavior shows that you despise
people with a different view on 9/11 than you have.
Since you must have all the time this formula and information at hand.
Exponent is however a helpful researcher, he did tell us how he did the calculations, even gave us a huge hires GE map with lines in it, which all of
that; you never ever did.
He gave it in the shortest form possible, by offering his map and by showing his formula, filled in with the measured meters he found in Google Earth,
in meters :
Chord length is 1176m
Sagitta length is 86m
(Google Earth measurements)
radius = 1176²/8*86 + 86/2
radius = 43 + 1176²/688
radius = 2053m
So I could simply derive his formula from what he offered.
Radius = (Chord-length squared) divided by (8 times Sagitta-length), plus (Sagitta-length divided by 2). You can also find that here :
r = y²/8x + x/2
I did already post this same method once, but with a somewhat different formula, taken from this website for musical instruments builders :
The formula they use is :
radius = (sagitta squared) + (1/2 length of chord squared) divided by 2 x sagitta.
(86x86) + (588x588) / 2x86. Which delivers nearly exactly the same outcome, 2053.14 meters.
I did not realize to use this much more precise method. I admit that was not smart enough. I have a lot on my mind every day, as my excuse. And very
old people tend to forget easy.
Btw, I really do not think I am smarter than many others. But I am smart enough to get a grip again on most professional knowledge, formerly out of my
interest sphere, in reasonable short times.
You, Reheat, however, never gave any hint what so ever how you concluded that my drawing was wrong. You were not willing to help me out. While all the
time, you must have had the formula at hand, how else can you arrive to, as good as the same conclusion as Exponent?
You must have used the same formula and Google Earth to arrive at the same figures as Exponent showed us above.
And you even admitted it to him :
Yes, that is very close to my own calculations. In fact, considering the resolution yours and mine are within a few meters of each
other. However, you're dealing with a hard head that won't listen...
To me it looks you are the hard head, denying to offer your method, and as if you enjoyed it, seeing me being puzzled and getting more and more angry
at you about your stubborn denying us all, of the method you used to arrive at the only hint you gave me, that my radius was measured wrong and thus
should be a lesser amount of meters long.
That is an obvious and clear form of teasing. And certainly not helpful.
