Debate Rounds (2)
Density = the degree of compactness of a substance .
Compression = the action of compressing or being compressed .
Equals (=) = be the same as .
The degree of compactness of a substance is a measurment of how compact something is. The degree by which a substance is compacted is not the same as the actions of compressing.
In essense, compression is what allows you to measure density but just because density is neccessitated by compression (or compaction), this doesn't make them equal, it simply makes the former dependant on the latter.
Density and compression often appear together due to this neccessitation and we can show that they are different factors by this illustrated graph as an example:
As you can see, the density and compression are both on different axis whilst the correlation is being measurred. No correlation would be found if they were both the same thing because the match up would not produce fluctuating points as the graph shows .
My opponent is correct however this does not affirm. If matter is shaped by a force acting upon it, then we can call the force compression or in this case c. We will refer to density as d and x as the amount of compression. y will equal "how" dense it is.
yc = xd
c/x = d/y
As you can see both c and d are different factors and will ultimately have different numbers (x and y) which demonstrates their dependance / neccessitation on eachother. This does NOT, however, prove them to be equal.
how do you compress something without it becomming more dense?
It is true that you cannot have a compacted substance without it being compressed however I never spoke against this claim.
My opponent concedes when he says the following:
Whilst, it isn't necessarily true it is enough to negate on alone. My opponent acknowledges that density and compression are different factors that make up a separate conclusion. If they are different factors then they cannot be equal. This is enough to vote Con on alone.
If my opponent wishes to change the definition of equals (=) to 'is' then this is fine. Plus (+) can also be referred to as and as my opponent appears to have requested or stated to explain his concession formula.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro never used any capitalization which made it difficult to read and understand where sentences ended and where new sentences began. This distorted his arguments and therefore made his arguments increasingly distorted and unclear.
