Been on the internet since i was just 6 years old and been on funnyjunk since 2007 with an account made only in 2010
You mean a C++ class/struct vs C struct?
> C doesn't support visibility restrictions.
> C doesn't support methods, although they can be implemented via function pointers.
> C doesn't support inheritence. Which, combined with above, excludes virtual methods for sure.
> C doesn't support constructors or destructors.
I'll do the math in the next comment to show how long it would take if the mass of the earth stayed in tact and all the above assumptions (in my and tadzingo's comment are fulfilled. (most importantly the vacuum)
There are very important mathematical calculations left out due to simplicity's sake that involve the increase of mass behind you as you accellerate through the ground, for our purposes I will exclude those forcesuntil the other side of the earth where they become the force that slow you down (faster than your acceleration.) If I can calculate them later (again assuming a homogeneous Earth uncondensed by gravity) I will and it will be the appropriate time.
I'll convert the distance to meters for the acceleration and divide by 2 to calculate only the period in which it is becoming faster. = 6,360,000m
If accelerating at a natural velocity for the altitude (measured by the distance to the center of mass from where you jump in) it would take you (D = .5*a*T^2 for T) 1137s
Again, assuming you were not being slowed down by the increasing earth behind you, you simply double the time (given the assumptions earlier) due to the same acceleration slowing you down now you get (1137*2)/60= 37.9 min
This is the amount of time it would take for you to move through the earth given that you only use the theoretical gravity singularity at the earth's center of mass. If I have the time I'll calculate the other stuff assuming a homogeneous density to the earth.
