• Im not sure how to find Ic without Vcc.?
  • Hi.I can speak many languages fluently.I can do accents.I m a self taught musician and I m in Engineering School.I really need to pass 10?

    Best answer: 10 subject a semester?? Seeing how most colleges only let you take 18 - 21 credit hours a semester (most only allowing 18), which is between 6 and 7 classes, I'd say no... and I am not sure why anyone would ever want to take 10 classes at one time. Also, the fact that you can speak different languages... show more

    Also, the fact that you can speak different languages fluently wouldn't help you, except if you wanted to get a Bachelor of Arts degree. Your accents won't help you at all and neither will being a self-taught musician. If being a self-taught musician was how it worked, I would have graduated with my PhD when I was 10.

  • Shouldn't life be simpler in the 21 century?

    With all our innovations and technology you'd have thought life would be simpler, but people work longer now and get paid less, let alone all the paperwork, pointless jobs, debt, and other hassle of modern life.

Shouldn't the tech that's out there truly being used to benefit all of us rather than just the rich capitalists? Couldn't we create a more relaxed relatively stress free world? Is that really so far beyond our capacity?

  • Can you use any diode as long as the amp and piv match?

    I am trying to repair a sound system and needs new diodes, the diode I am looking for is apparently 276-1144 (3amps/400PIV) So I am assuming 276-1144 is just a model of diode? in this case I would only need to worry about the AMP and PIV? in theory I could purchase any diode so long as the AMP and PIV fits the... show more

  • Hinkley point C, UK Capacity needs?

    Hi, I'm doing a report on the UK capacity needs for the new Hinkley point C nuclear power plant. The plant is said to have 3200MW output full and also is said to power 6 million homes. Can someone tell me the math behind how they got 6 million homes? As a home in the UK averages a 10KWh output then 3200MW/10KWh... show more

Can someone tell me the math behind how they got 6 million homes? As a home in the UK averages a 10KWh output then 3200MW/10KWh (3200000000/10000) = 320000 homes. I know I am doing something stupidly wrong, can someone tell me what please. Thank you.

    I'm applying for undergrad. The only field of engineering I have any interest in is computer engineering, but I'm not 100 percent sure if I want to limit myself to this one field. With mechanical engineering I would have basic knowledge of many different fields of engineering, so I could still become a computer engineer but if I changed my interests I could specialize into other fields as well. So would mechanical engineering be better for me?

  • Should I quit civil engineering? I actually want to solve problems/model I can't stand just reading and applying standards?

    I work for a huge structural company. All I do is check weld charts, check procedures, check standards, respond to written comments, check drawings. I can't stand of of this.

    I work for a huge structural company. All I do is check weld charts, check procedures, check standards, respond to written comments, check drawings. I can't stand of of this. I was hooked because I was told the company did finite element modeling. I wanted to learn that skill set and other advance problem solving techniques they told me they offered training in. I thought it would be great to learn that stuff especially because I only have a BS and I thought I was going to get paid to learn and apply advance engineering. Its not the job. I just quit a site job before this one for many of the same reasons but I didn't realize that was a good job relative to what I am experiencing now. I didn't realize because my friends bitched all day and I didn't have enough life experience to know what true hell is like every day. Should I look into careers outside of engineering at this point and possibly go back to get a masters in a unrelated field?

  • Some old radios were powered with crystals. Under pressure they make voltage. Can a crystal be used in place of a 9v battery?

    Best answer: You can use a Piezo crystal to generate electricity but you have t keep flexing it. A "Crystal Radio" was a simple diode made of a mineral "crystal", not a piezo.

    Best answer: You can use a Piezo crystal to generate electricity but you have t keep flexing it.
    A "Crystal Radio" was a simple diode made of a mineral "crystal", not a piezo.
    It was passive because the crystal rectified the radio station transmitter power and that was enough power to be heard with headphones. The diode does not generate any power. Newer "crystal radios" used a 1N34 germanium diode instead of a chunk of mineral and "cats whisker".
