The first man passes his bucket to the second man, and the second man passes his bucket to the third man and the third man to the fourth man.
The bucket passing process continues, but it takes time to pass each bucket to the next.
We have the summation of the time it takes to pass a bucket for each of the fifty men for the first bucket passed to reach the end of the line. After the first bucket reaches the end of the line, it only takes the time to pass one bucket to receive the next bucket at the end of the line.
Throughput can be increased by adding lines of fifty men. Given a second line of fifty men there will be twice as many buckets processed. But the time it takes for an individual bucket to reach the end of the line is still the summation of time of bucket passes.
I don’t know the context of the presentation but a video of a Rube Goldberg like contraption would be fun to show an apparatus being loaded and the delay of arrival at the output, but lower time for subsequent arrivals oncethe process path is loaded.
Right, so your visualization again works and easily
explains why "lag can exceed the time between frames".
So how is it possible than some other mental construct could block someone with an 85+ IQ from understanding that? TGM please help us!
There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...
