Never heard of the films most people have for 1 or 2. 3 puzzled me, as I've always used x for position, not s, assuming it is Speed. The only other thing that occurred to me was Absolute Power, but that would rightly be dW/dt, not ds/dt.

The derivative of position with respect to time is velocity. s is distance covered and its derivative with respect to time is speed.

5. is a porno.

Batteries not included! I should have searched "batteries not" instead of "not battery"...

In my defence, I never knew such a movie existed...

In your offense, I am 23 and that was my child hood favorite movie with little flying saucers helping to repair a hotel//diner and then make baby flying saucers

I live in India.

9. umm... elephant man?

[7 pounds][vertical limit][speed][american pie][cube][lord of the rings][wall-e][127 hours][elephant man][*batteries not included]

You almost got my name right. :)

Whoops, that should be right now.

1. Seven Pounds 2. Vertical Limit 3. Speed 4. American Pie 5. XXX 7. Wall-E 9. The Elephant Man 10. Batteries not included

could anyone tell me why #6 is Lord of the Rings? (if it is..)

Why would you need absolute value for Speed?

coz Speed is a scalar quantity. Without the absolute value, it would represent Velocity(which is a vector).

Not really. s is distance, \vec{s} is displacement.

to Sarthak Chandra: The man with a crown is a lord (I first thought of a king) and the stuff in the bubbles represents rings in the mathematical sense, that's why it is Lord of the Rings.

1. Seven Pounds (2008)
2. Vertical Limit (2000)
3. Speed (1994)
4. American Pie (1999)
5. Cube (1997)

10. Not 3 cells ?

6) the kings speech

Though I see 7 lbs for #1, KG !=kg. G=gauss, g=gram, k=kilo=1000, K=??. Seeing as nerds are always pedantic (ALWAYS, dammit), I had to be right gently correct.

6. Brokendown Palace?

3.- is Acceleration not Spedd

Could anybody discuss the logic behind '6 - The Lord of the Rings'?
Many of you posted this movie name but I am confused.
