The truth about the length of a cycle

The citric acid cycle in mitochondrion is constantly occuring in order to produce ATP from acetyl coenzyme A. 34 to 36 molecules to be exact. Basically, it occurs instantly.

The length of my motorCycle is 2390 mm.

The length of a standard cycle on my washer is 44 minutes

The shortest possible length to hit the cycle for one player in a baseball game is 34 pitches.

The row cycle time on Kingston KVR333X64C25K2/2G DIMM is 42ns.

The length of a water cycle is a boring debate...

That's the truth about the length of a cycle...



Made you look

Do a search on cycle and you will return 3671 matches as of this post. But no one EVER searches, they just repost the question "How long does the cycle take?" I know this post won't confuse anyone new to this site...they won't search anyway.

What I like best about that cycle is the leaky membrane phenomenon. I can't totally recall what happens, but there's a constant leak and the ratio needs to be corrected and all that wasted energy is HEAT!! Yippee!!

Hit the cycle:

A single player gets a single, double, triple and homer in the same game:

Pitch 1: Player Gets a Single
Pitch 2 - 11 : The rest of the lineup hits their first pitch and safely reach base
Pitch 12: Player Gets a Double
Pitch 13-22 : The rest of the lineup hits their first pitch and safely reach base
Pitch 23: Player Gets a Triple
Pitch 24 - 33: The rest of the lineup hits their first pitch and safely reach base
Pitch 34: Player get a Homer

Actually the baseball cycle is incorrect it's 28 pitches
1st batter hits single on first pitch-pitch 1
2nd through 9th batter get hits on first pitch- pitch 2-9
1st batter comes up again and hits double on first pitch-pitch 10
2nd through 9th batter get hits on first pitch- pitch 11-18
1st batter comes up again and hits triple on first pitch- pitch 19
2nd through 9th batter get hits on first pitch- pitch 20-27
1st batter comes up again and hits home run on first pitch--pitch 28

for those of you that don't understand---every person has to get a hit on their first pitch and there would be no outs and it would be in the same inning

funny stuff although the citric acid cycle reminded me of Biochemistry class in college which gave me nightmares
