  • Can I wear a Ski Coach Jacket instead of a normal Ski Jacket in Tignes in April?

    Going skiing again but want to buy a jacket with a cool design. I've never tried a coach jacket - are they warm enough to ski in or is it better to buy a regular ski jacket?

    Going to Tignes at the beginning of April.

    This is the jacket I am looking to buy (not a great quality jacket I know, but love the graphics):

  • what materials are car trailers made of?

    I need a list of materials that car trailers are made of. I know steel is used a lot but is there anything else? Do different manufacturers use different materials for their trailers?

    Also, If anyone can provide me with actual examples of companies with trailers that are made of different materials (i.e. not steel) that would much appreciated!! :)

    Need help with this simple yet confusing maths question!?

    6. This is a problem about a carpenter who has to make a surround for a wash basin. (diagram is attached).

    He can measure the length of the arc S (the distance round the curve from A to B) and the length of the chord L, but he needs the radius of the curve R in order to mark out the required shape. The aim of this question is to calculate R.

    Lets call the angle at the centre 2x radians

    a) By means of a sketch show why sinx = L/2R

    b) Explain why 2x/2(pi) = S/2(pi)R

    c) Rearrange the equation in b) to make R the subject

    d) Substitute this into the equation in a) to show that: sinx - Lx/S = 0

  • How to add percentages?

    - Say I have 50,000. I want to find out a 5.9% increase on that.

    - Okay so If i wanted to find out 10% increase I would just do 50,000 * 1.1(recurring) = 55,555.5(recurring). If I then minus 10% of this answer (which is 5,555.5(recurring)) so therefore do 55,555.5 - 5,555.5, I get back to 50,000 which is the original number (apologies if it's a bit confusing).

    - If i do 50,000 * 1.059 I get 52950. But if I then minus 5.9% off 52950 I do not get 50,000!

    - So i don't want to simply find a 5.9% increase, I want to find out the number so that when I calculate 5.9% of that number and then minus it, I am left with 50,000 (like i did in the second bullet point).

  • Calculating simple percentages?

    Say i have 10,000, i then make 10% of that at the end of the first month (1,000). So i now have 11,000. I then make 10% of that at the end of the next month (1,100), so i now have 12100.

    etc etc.

    How do I calculate what the total would be after 12 months/a year? I remember there being a way to do this without going through every month but i can't figure it out :S

  • Examples of how traceability is applied to motor racing in the uk?

    For the second part of my assignment it asks me: "Provide an explanation of how traceability is achieved within the UK and how this applies to the everyday work motor racing.

    The purpose of this part of the assignment is to demonstrate your knowledge of how the integrity of measurement is maintained and traceability is demonstrated.

    You should therefore identify examples of key measurements relevant to motor racing. Two examples will suffice.

    It is important to clearly identify the quantity being measured and its importance. Furthermore you should identify institutions that are vital in providing the chain traceability and clearly explain the role of each."

    So basically, I Need some examples, and an explanation with each example would be massively appreciated! :D

  • Traceability in motor sports help!?

    How is it achieved in the UK? And how is that then applied to motor racing?

  • I sold a trade/stock/security for higher than i bought it but i made a loss?

    I'm using IronFX MetaTrader 4 Demo account in GBP currency, i started off with 100,000 and I was looking at the XPTUSD chart.

    On the 13th june (not sure of time) the ask was 1436.10 so i bought 1 share. Just now around 23:06 16th June the bid was 1436.79 so I sold it. Under P/L it said it was between 20 and 21, so surely it means i'm in profit by that much as it wasn't negative?

    Anyway i was so confused because my balance was 100,000 but my equity was around 99,879. I decided to close the buy and the sell, and now my balance is reading 99,868.49

  • How does a microcontroller create a rolling effect?

    I've built an electrical LED dice as a project. For the report i have to say what additional components were used to create that rolling effect that makes the LEDs slow down when you release the pair of contacts that activates the circuit. I know i had to add a microcontroller, but how does the microcontroller create that rolling stop effect?
