    12 out of 13, however my "missed" one was regarding the tectonic plates moving for "millions of years". I said false as I am a YEC. Of course I know and understand that the plates are moving... just not for millions of years. :)

    The indefinite integral is represented by the primitive function F(x) = arctan e^x + C, where C represents the family of constants.

    I was "hoping" you were going to forget the constant of integration. You physicist types always make things more difficult. :)

    13 out of 13.

    But wouldn't admitting that be a cause for some to think I am posting something that is boastful, arrogant, ...?

    Don't believe him. He googled the answer, if truth be told. Anyone who would steal a canary and a parrot can't be that smart. :D :tongue3: :wavey: :love2:

    I missed #1 about radioacivity being manmade and #7. I went with hydrogen as the answer. :tear:

    Radioactivity is a naturally occurring property of the Heavier elements, elements which are quite massive individually on the atomic scale. (Lots of "stuff in the nucleus of the atom) Because of all this stuff in the nucleus, the balance of all this stuff and the interplay between the strong and nuclear forces struggles and particles are released....this is radioactivity. Hope this helps. :)

    13/13 - rather simple test but I work in a nuclear lab.

    Scarry that only 7% of the population got them all right.
