@jpmc26 The other answer completes this one with the answer: we can always get to 2 black squares, not always less.

comment Any trick to remember code?
And are you asking as a professional/hobbyist, or as a student? In particular, are you preparing for executing programming tasks without any access to documentation (including personal notes)?

comment Any trick to remember code?
What do you expect to remember after "learning code"? Full implementations of some algorithms? Specifications of some libraries? Best-practice patterns and idioms?

comment Red and Blue in the Chocolate Fountain Room
Unless I'm mistaken, there isn't 1 last person but 2 (the two in the middle who see a red dot to their left and a blue to their right), so each can follow their group? Not sure how it will work out if everyone is red though.

"roughly", yes.

None of these are neutral if there is another charged body nearby, are they? And for the record, unless I did a mistake in my trigonometry, you're right for 4, the inwards pull is approx. 2.31 times stronger than the outwards push.

Maybe it does, but I fail to see how: any body, charged or not, put in an environment without any charge, will not experience any net force, right?

Your definition of "neutral" is given for a body. If we are to apply the same definition, all configurations are neutral because there's nothing else. So do you mean that all bodies in the configuration experience no net force?

Is a neutral configuration a stable one?

comment What is "wrong" with this microwave?
Hehe, yes, don't worry. On second thought, the manufacturer has got some nerve putting that warning, that's basically trading one risk for another. Even if the manual explains thoroughly that wooden spoons are preferrable, users can't be trusted to read it...
