Discussion of calculation of Physics Cost-Saving Tips[edit]

At the moment the calculation for 2649: Physics Cost-Saving Tips performed by SqueakSquawk4 is included in the explanation of said comic. Here this can be discussed. --Kynde (talk) 07:01, 25 July 2022 (UTC)

That looks great! Sorry I can't talk to you on your talk page, it hasn't been created and I've always been too lazy to make an autoconfimed user. I hope you're okay with the changes in this edit. Do you mind if we subst: this into the collapse box on 2649 so it can be cleaned up and formatted there? Thanks for looking all that up. 14:37, 24 July 2022 (UTC)

What actually is Subst-ing? SqueakSquawk4 (talk) 15:51, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
It just means copying it instead of transcluding it like a template. The advantage is it's not dependent on your userpage which is kind of nonstandard and awkward, but the disadvantage is that edits in one place won't show up in the other. mw:Help:Substitution. 16:12, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
I actually kinda like it referencing my profile. If there's no strong reason to change it, I'd like to keep it.SqueakSquawk4 (talk) 18:06, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
No problemo! 23:46, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
Hi SqueakSquawk4. I cannot validate your calculation, but given all the discussion about it, I think it is valid to include in the explanation. It is a new way to include stuff on explain xkcd, so I'm not sure about that version, but I will not oppose it. If others agree with your calculations, I think it is a great effort by you. Thanks. Have added a header, so the next who wish to write to you on other subjects, can make a new header, so not to mix up the discussions. And also included the calculation at the top, so everyone coming here knows what the fuss is about. Good job! ;-) --Kynde (talk) 07:01, 25 July 2022 (UTC)

... First, I just noticed, why did you go from 1.25 to 1.35 to 1.5 MeV? Which figure did you use for the total energy product? Fixed math. 16:53, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
