Updated: I Need Math Help: How do I find the info needed and what formula do I use to figure this fluid physics and astronomy question with?
Finally, I have been given the source of the "info" the fellow talking to me, was drawing from:
It can be found here: Hydroplate 'theory'
Ok, here is my problem. I have been presented with, what at first sounds like a totally ludicrous concept, but in order to prove or disprove it, I need to have some math backing that I don't have in my head (nor in my experience).
I need the approximate mass of the asteroids in the belt. And also I need the distance to the belt.
I will also need to figure how much pressure it would take to force a column of water skyward at escape velocity, equal to that mass.
And if there is a way to give a simple explanation for the math, that would be apreciated also :-)
