  1. B, because the portal has no effect on the cube except to change the angle, so it retains its velocity from gravity. For it to suddenly stop it would have to have an opposite force slowing it down.

    • Portals donot break the laws of physics. We just don’t have the technology to create them or use them, and they don’t occur naturally outside of black holes as far as we know.

        you cannot make a pathway through one point in space too the other
        closest you can get is a wormhole

  2. It’s A.

    It’s been thoroughly established by us stating over and over that portals do not, I repeat do not change velocities of objects when they pass through portals.

    So that cube, falling downwards at terminal velocity when going through the portal, will continue falling downwards at terminal velocity when it pops out at the other end with its velocity unchanged. This means it’s ends up falling directly down from where it pops out, right in front of the blue portal.

    • You would fall down and not be pushed into acid. I know of the referential velocity answer but the earth itself is our reference point. When a car drives past my house, there is no question whether or not I am moving or the car is, obviously the car is moving and I am stationary in reference to the earth.

  3. C: The cube sits awkwardly inside the portal because gravitational pull (falling) is not the same as mechanical acceleration (being thrown).
