    The portals which are established alter the momentum of passing objects in order to function as passages proceeds to alter the momentum of the cube in order to function as a passage. This was solved ages ago.

        Let me guess, you're a dumbass that thinks portals conserve momentum. Changing the direction something moves is literally altering momentum.

        doesn’t the portal just disappear if the surface it’s attached to moves?

        why is this still a thing?

        Non-canonical programming constraint, the fact the game has moments where portals explicitly exist on moving surfaces means them disappearing is not intended canon. Would be like thinking forcefields exist in a world war 2 game because you found an invisible wall.

          It literally does not matter what the portals do or do not do. Once the cube is moving out the exit portal, it has momentum, and thus will shoot out assuming the momentum is enough to overcome gravity.

            Even that is acknowledging what the portals do. Since the cube's momentum must be changed for it to be moving out the exit portal. But you are right, the fact it even leaves the exit means it has momentum.

      The exit portal is stationary.
      As such, the cube must be moving to leave the exit portal.
      Anything that is moving has momentum.
      If the piston with the entrance portal slams down at 100 m/s, the cube leaves the exit portal at 100 m/s.

      The only portals that move in-game move sideways

      The earth is revolving, the earth is orbit the sun, the sun is orbiting the milky way center, the milky way galaxy is in a orbit with the local cluster. Everything is always moving, a moving portal is not an issue.

And since you can alter the cube's behavior based on a frame of reference, you can use the result to determine a universal frame is reference, and since that cannot exist you can infer that the who premise is incorrect and petals physically cannot move.

            oh okay lol. i didn't know it was getting THAT technical. well yeah, in order for a portal to stay fixed on a moving thing, there would have to be something special going on at the portal's rings or something. i was assuming we weren't going there. if we were, then the moment the surface the portal is placed on moves, the portal would become unstable and either disappear or wreck the surface then disappear.

                Because the cube is literally moving in that reference frame. The cube "seems like" it's moving in the exact same way it "seems like" it's not moving in the OP pic. They are both valid measurements of motion.

                you can measure the orange portal's motion all you want, but the cube in reality is stationary. when the orange portal engulfs the cube, unless blue portal's environment has a different air pressure, there is no reason for the cube to shoot straight out. it would emerge in the middle of the ramp then slide down by gravity and end up as figure A.

                The cube is placed at 0 velocity while the portal is moving towards it. The cube not moving means that the portal is moving into it. It isn't being placing on the floor to move along with the train. It is just hanging in the air to recreate the conditions of the original problem.

                Well excuse me for not realistically considering that the cube isn't placed in front of the portal while it's moving.
                If it were to suddenly materialize off the ground inside the train in front of the portal, it would get halfway stuck in the two portals then once it touches the ground, whichever half is affected by the motion of the train the most via friction would send it more through the other portal.

                This would still be accelerating the cube up to the speed of the train. If nothing else, that would show that portals can either do something or at least cause something to happen indirectly that changes the velocity of an object. If you are suggesting the cube ends up running into itself since the part that went into the portal is trying to stay at zero velocity, that will actually change the outcome of the original problem too. If the cube try to stay at zero velocity on the blue side, the rest of the cube will push the top through resulting it it going flying since the platform it is resting on prevents it from moving the other direction.

                once cube falls down and touches the moving train's floor, it will be affected via friction and tumble around until it catches up to the train's speed and stops moving.
                in OP's pic, the cube and its platform are stationary. the orange portal exerts no pressure by itself. so once it slams down, assuming it doesn't shake the platform, the cube would emerge then slide down as figure A.

                The portals are moving at the speed of the train. Remaining halfway between the portals means that it is no longer stationary and is now moving at the speed of the train along with the portals. The velocity changed as a result of the portals.

                in the train gif, the walls on which the portals are placed are moving at the speed of the train, but the portals are not walls. since the cube was at 0 speed, the cube would not move until it makes contact with the floor.
                it would get stuck halfway not because its speed becomes the same as the train's speed, but because the portals would be emulating train-less 0 speed air
                in OP's pic, the platform the cube rests on is not a portal. it becomes a ramp (maybe there would be a slight bump at the portal's rings) when the cube is through the blue portal, so it slides down.

                You can't argue that something different happens to the cube since the point of the gif is that the final shot is identical to the first shot which is clearly following the rules acknowledged even by agays, that the portals can change the travel direction of the cube

                You may attempt to argue that the train moving should mean something different does happen in the first shot as well. But then you need to explain why the same rule doesn't apply to the fact that the earth also moves.

                i thought we were still using the scenario in which the cube materializes in front of one of the train portals completely stationary? since the cube is at 0 speed, the portals would act as 0 speed air until the cube falls down and makes contact with the floor. i'm confused at what you're accusing me of. i am using the same argument that the cube in both cases, if at 0 speed by itself, would not move. in OP's figure A it slides down by the platform-turned-ramp by gravity after it emerges out of the blue portal at 0 speed of its own.

                That's the scenario invented in an attempt to disagree with the train gif. I'm pointing out why such a disagreement does not work. The final shot as shown in the gif is what happens because it's identical to what happens in the first shot that is clearly following agreed upon rules of how a portal behaves. It's the entire point of the gif.

                if a camera were to aim at the train's cube fixed at the center and the same done to OP's pic, then of course it would appear that everything else but the cubes move. but that's camerawork. the cube is thrown into the portal in the train gif while in OP's pic it's stationary. the portals themselves don't accelerate or decelerate things.

                The train is what's moving, the cube is thrown to counteract the train's momentum to make the cube not be moving relative to the ground

                it doesn't matter what the speed of the train looks like to the camera relative to the outside stationary environment. the portals don't accelerate or decelerate things. the cube is thrown into the portal whether it looks stationary to outside the train or not. the force is carried through the portals. the cube that materializes stationary has no momentum being applied so the portals would not accelerate or decelerate it.

                There is no force on the cube as it passes through the portal. You are confusing force with momentum.

                wait, did i misunderstand the train gif? it's not being thrown? it's just let go? but that wouldn't even make sense. the cube would fall at the person's feet.

                It's being thrown, the force from it being being thrown stops being applied once it leaves the thrower's hands. At that point all that matters if the cube's state of motion, regardless what reason for its state of motion is. That's why saying the cube is thrown as a distinction from the OP problem is moronic. it's also why the cube in the final shot of the gif is the same as the one in the OP pic, they are both motionless in the given reference frame.

                right but in the train gif, the thrower still threw it at a speed at that exact counter speed. to the camera in the last part, it looks like the cube doesn't move but that's just camera work. to the portal, it was thrown, not let go.
                so did i misunderstand OP's pic then? is the platform being raised upwards?

                Anon, the frame of reference determining the cube to be motionless in the train gif is the earth's. The very reference frame you swear most by and the one you're using to determine the cube in the OP pic to be motionless as well. You cannot argue one is moving and the other isn't without contradicting yourself.

                Talking about the cube being thrown doesn't work:

                >it's thrown in the train gif.
                It being thrown makes no difference as you have failed to establish in your belief why it should make one.

                Even the portal changing the direction an object moves is a form of acceleration.

                Then how about a situation where there was a stationary cube that just happened to be hovering in the train? What would happen then and would it be different from the thrown cube and why?

          >umm you made a generalization but i found a fringe case so you're argument is invalid
          Mid 2023 most threads all talked about relative momentum of the metal platforms when Alads mentioned the portal not able to transfer momentum. Recently it's been portals do transfer momentum. Both those it was it the pressure change between "sides" would cause a change in the kinetic energy of the cube by essentially sucking it through via a pseudo quantum depressurization. Before that, it was the crowbcat video. Before that it was the video of the MODDED version of Portal to set it up. Before that it was the fricking blog from the valve employee where he said game logic says A but my goofy understanding of physics says it'd be B if portals were real. Alads have always stuck with the hoola hoop analogy and the keaton gif because we don't need to scrounge for ammo to defend the truth.

            I have literally never seen this argument posted on here.
            >Before that, it was the crowbcat video
            What crowbcat video?

            The valve employee saying B was in response to the appeal to authority fallacy you idiots were making to begin with. It was never the main argument.

            I've seen the moon scene and the gif I posted brought up for years now because they are solid arguments that have not been disproven. You only need to point out a hula hoop not being analogous to the problem at hand and the agay will always bail (literally happened in this thread:

            A hula hoop is 2 portals back to back and that only.

            )

      A no point do you see a cube gain speed. You see a stationary cube enter one portal, and another cube which was already moving exit the other.

    the cube exits in the middle of the blue portal, then gravity slides it down and figure A is about the final position.
    figure B would make sense if the cube platform is the one that shoots up instead.

        well no, the platform pushing the cube up gives the cube figure B's speed. if it's just the red portal coming to it, assuming the blue portal is in the same room with the same air pressure, then what i said would occur and figure A would be the final result.
        now, if the red portal is coming down at the speed of light or something, then the cube would be thrashed about in a random direction but still not shoot straight out like in figure B.

    I think the main annoying thing about Bgays is they want a consistent model for something that's impossible and their own model doesn't even make sense in the first place because the portal applies a force and change in velocity without the cube actually accelerating.

    Suppose you have an arm with portal-panels on the end.
    The arm is connected to a horizontal wheel

    (w)---P

    Kinda like that. There's portals on either side of the P panel so that it acts like a hoop. As the arm spins, do the portals generate wind? The portals, not the arms.

    Now imagine there is another arm
    P---(w)---P
    Both portals are facing north (or whatever direction). As the wheel spins, does the air entering one portal cause the portal on the other arm to propel the wheel ever faster as it spews out wind?

    Like it's gonna do whatever the guy who made the scenario this is happening wants to. Gaben could make Portal three and say doing this gives you aids. You just get aids, nothing else. Portals do that now. They're not real and all their properties are invented. So why argue about it? It's like that old "do teleporters kill and remake you?", and sure they could, but only if the writer says so. And if they say no then it doesn't.
