comment May one eat eggs purchased on Passover?
I found this here contributed by Nooch. He quotes from here It is best to buy eggs that were laid before Pesach. This is because chickens are usually given feed which is Chometz. He asserts - It has to do with chametz in the crop. If a mashehu of chametz adheres to the egg shell and then ends up in your reshus, it's not batel. But it can be batel b'rov or b'shishim (depending on its state), before Yom Tov begins.

comment Why in the Temple were the meal offerings that were unleavened, kneaded with warm water?
@Gary Sorry I was not clear. What I meant to say is that there is a mishnah in Pesachim 3:4 (“This is the rule: as soon as dough becomes inflated, let the woman plunge her hand in cold water.”) that mentions cold water and a mishnah in Menachot 5:2 (“All grain offerings must be kneaded with lukewarm water”) that mentions lukewarm water. So both temperatures of water must have been available.

comment Does nullification mean something no longer exists, or just that it has no Halachic significance?
@Menachem That is the basis for the answer. If the issur is חוזר וניעור it cannot have disappeared.

comment When have I started Shemoneh Esrei?
If you would be stuck there until Moshiach comes, I would advise you to stay! How long can a Shemoneh Esrei be?

@Gary See Pesachim Perek 3 Mishna 4. זה הכלל: תפח תלתוש בצונן The Mishnah here mentions צונן (cold) and the Mishnah Perek 5 Mishna 2 mentions פושרין (lukewarm). I deduce that the פושרין were not at ambient temperature.

comment Should the Gemora allow boiled food on Pesach?
Pouring the grain or flour into water that is already boiling will reduce the temperature of the water. It would have to be done extremely carefully so that the heat supplied to the water keeps it boiling while the flour is added.

What does "focussed" and "one area" mean in this context? The LED light array in the question would illuminate an area of say several square feet.

@Double AA The "LED light array" is a more extended light source (less focussed) than the head lamp.
