    Damn. Portals would be so useful for my, uh, non-genocidal ambitions.

    because it doesnt matter that the portal is moving, the object is stationary and has no kinetic energy.

    Also, I have created a time vortex because portal is still relevant.

    Portals can't be on moving surfaces faggot

    Portals don't exist, retard

    Now that we have cleared that point, can you make the effort of imagine a meaningful answer?

    Second tip: In fact, it has KE from the point of view of Red...

    Here we have a system with (at most...;)) 3 points of possible reference: Red, Blue and Box

    And we have to think of the relation between them

    C'mon guys, prove that at least some of you have a basic grasp of physics

    If the portals work like they do in Portal I'd say a). Because the portals conserve kinetic energy of objects relative to their surroundings only, the room is the inertial frame of reference. And relative to the room the cube has none. B) would be the outcome if the frame of reference was, say, in outer space, but that is totally non-canon (plus I doubt the havok physics engine is actually that complex).

    So why does this shitty thread need to exist? There are enough of these types of threads elsewhere.

    Forget the game, it's not relevant to the disscusion. We surely can image the concept of portals without having to resort to Valve's coding...

    And the room, the box, Blue and outer space (let's forget the movement of the planet, we are not talking here about translation not rotation etc movement of Earth...) all have the same inertial frame

    ...

    Anyway, the correct answer is A.

    If the exit portal were on a flat surface and the entrance portal was on a moving platform(a piston platform, if you will), which is about to slam onto the platform below it, the object on that platform wouldn't move, but just appear where the exit portal is at and it will "disappear" once the moving platform lifted up.

    Let me make another simpler question...

    If this were the case:

    anotherwaytoloolatit.

    ...anybody doubt that the box would leave Blue with the same velocity it entered Red?

    (And then gravity and air resistance would start to slow down it, of course...)

    It'll leave at the same velocity as it did before it entered the portal.

    But it's the object that's moving, this time, not the platform.

    Yeah, but the box does not enter the portal at any speed. Its relative kinetic energy is zero. That DOES NOT change if the portal is moving. So y u no accept that b) is incorrect?

    Now, what if the circumference of the portal was bigger than the platform?

    PORTAL.

    Moving in relation to what?

    We can only talk about relative movement. That's what the concept of inertial system is about.

    The box, in both cases, is approaching Red, at a speed. Or Red is approximating to the box, at that same speed.
    It's the same thing, that's the point.

    Unless you believe in God, as CW94, there isn't a magical privileged point of view. You only can talk about relative movement of a thing respect to another thing.

    Of course the Box enters Red at a speed. How can it enter otherwise?

    And when it leaves through Blue, it does at a speed. If not, it will not leave at all...

    If goatse rapidly sat on a cube, would it rocket up his ass? I think not.
