Sorry to be bumping my own thread, but WOW! After browsing the forums earlier today, I found this thread
, and it got me really excited. Those are the kinds of things I love thinking about. I tried to come up with an equation that would give me the force of the beater striking the head, and although it probably wasn't worth doing (due to the fact that it is quite difficult to measure Newtons and m/s without the proper equipment), I really enjoyed thinking about it.
Also, I wonder if KBadd forgot to return? I'm very eager to hear what he has to say!
