    Haha, oops I knew there would be something that I would forget :p

    DOF Science - Question 1 Part A
    a) C =Q*V should be C=Q/V
    b) Measure of Capacitance
    c) Ewald Christian von Kliest and Pieter van Musschenbroek (Image 3)

    a) E=mc^3 should be E=mc^2 (where ^ represents the power c is raised to)
    b) Theory of relativity
    c) Albert Einstein (Image 1)

    a) M = vs/u
    b) Mach number – measurement of an object’s speed travelling at (or mulitples of) the speed of sound
    c) Ernst Mach (Image 5)

    a) Fnet = d(mtv) should be Fnet = d(mv)
    b) Newton’s second law of motion
    c) Isaac Newton (Image 2)

    a) T is proportional to L^2/3 should be T is proportional to L^3/2 (where ^ represents the power L is raised to)

    h. Phil Collins’ band gets hot in Greece. (Thermogenesis)
    From Anatomy:
    i. Granny wears these cheap, bad-taste garments with buttons up the front (Tachycardia)

    n. Someone who is against everybody (Antibody)
    o. Relatives expecting you to do things for them (Blood Pressure)

    If you got part of the word correct you scored 1 point.
    I also allowed these answers for 2 points:

    g. Tiny people (Microorganisms)
    o. Relatives expecting you to do things for them (Kinetochore)

    DOF Science - Question 8
    The most common look for Cara is:
    Green eyes
    Black hair
    Curly hair

    And there you have it :)

    Edit: I only need one more winner from Fantastic Contraptions to send me their designs and the poll for the Honourable Mention will go ahead.
