• I asked a question a few days ok on what to set a meter on to check my washing machine pump. I received the following answer?

    "Set the meter to ohms at the 2k setting and read the resistance of the motor. If the resistance reads 0 (no resistance), OL (out of limits) or the resistance is very high (over 1k), the motor is bad." I did so and the reading I got was .0005 what does that mean? Thank you

  • Should I finish my engineering degree if I have no interest in engineering?

    I just failed first year (passed only four courses). I'm taking tuition now and quickly realizing that I have zero interest in calculus and physics. But I think that if I continue I will be able to pass the courses and eventually get the degree. I am just doing it to get a high paying job. I have no interest in... show more
    I just failed first year (passed only four courses). I'm taking tuition now and quickly realizing that I have zero interest in calculus and physics. But I think that if I continue I will be able to pass the courses and eventually get the degree. I am just doing it to get a high paying job. I have no interest in engineering, but at the same time I have no interest in anything else either and don't know what to do with my life. I am really confused and I don't want to disappoint my parents.

  • If i was using an electric motor to charge a battery, how would i stop the motor from spinning because of the battery?

    Best answer: Rectifier. It won't let the current go the other direction. You could also try disconnecting it.

  • Will airlines go out of business due to rockets pilot shortage?

    Best answer: Even if they do develop commercial passenger carrying rockets. I don' think that will eliminate passenger planes. Rockets work best for very long flights while various planes are made to fit all types of flights.

  • Why do people still buy mechanical watches?

    Best answer: slide rule, not slide ruler. I know because that is all they had when I was in college 40 years ago. But I got the first TI calculator as soon as it was introduced, about 1970 or so. Same story for quartz watches when they were introduced. I agree with you, the technology of electronic watches is far beyond... show more

    I agree with you, the technology of electronic watches is far beyond mechanical versions. Some people must feel a kind of prestige paying thousands for a wind-up Rolex watch.You can try luxurywho.com with good quality.

    I am very good at programming given my level of experience. I didn't realize when I went into engineering that engineering is not creative or problem solving. Software engineers solve problems, get better working conditions, higher salary, get to solve actual problems etc. Sucks I already have an engineering degree that took me longer to get than if I had done CS the first time. I know for a fact I don't need the whole degree. They teach a lot of nonsense in school. If I went back to school and took a few classes and got a minor or undergraduate certificate in Computer Science is that enough for me to switch fields?
