  • Law surrounding threats questions.?

    So if someone makes a threat, they can go to jail or get a fine. But if they threatened to kill someone, will they not just get more mad while they are in jail, and after a few years of jail time, will they not then proceed to kill/attack the person they threatened?

  • Boss asks another employee to ask you to do things.?

    What is the purpose of this? For something that the boss can simply email you and say "ABC, 123, do XYZ", why would the boss email another employee, telling them "Can you get (me) to ABC, 123, do XYZ"?

    The employee just forwards me the boss's email...

  • Is this bad to do during an internship/co-op job?

    If you had an intern/co-op that halfway through the internship registered in classes (they take place during the business day, and he makes up the hours by working in the evenings), what would you think?

    Would you think negatively of this action?

  • Is this a good internship or not?

    If during the internship, the company assigns you to work with a junior employee (graduated 3-4 years ago) rather than the senior manager from your offer letter. That means that all of your dealings, including receiving assignments, receiving feedback, etc. is with that junior employee that you sit beside.

    Is this a good system or a bad system? Should you be reporting to the official manager or that junior employee?

  • Flexible hours at work without informing your boss?

    My work structure is that I report to a junior person called a "team lead", then officially have a supervisor and a manager. I never actually interact on a day to day basis with the supervisor or manager.

    If I were to start taking classes while working and doing flexible hours, how bad would it be if I did so without consulting the supervisor and manager and only getting the team lead's approval?

  • Thermodynamics question?

    Two insulated tanks are connected by a valve with the air at the following conditions:

    Tank 1: 0.5 kg, 80 C, 1 bar

    Tank 2: 1 kg, 50 C, 2 bar

    The valve is opened and the system is allowed to reach equilibrium. Find the final temperature?

  • How to do this fluids problem?

    A large tank contains SAE 10 lube oil at a temperature of 60 F and a pressure of 2

    psig. The oil is 2 ft deep in the tank and drains out through a vertical tube in the bottom. The tube

    is 10 ft long and discharges the oil at atmospheric pressure. Assuming the oil to be Newtonian and

    neglecting the friction loss from the tank to the tube, how fast will it drain through the tube?

  • How to do this thermodynamics question?

    A refrigeration system uses an expansion valve to reduce the pressure of R134a refrigerant from

    1.2 MPa to a 0.24 MPa saturated mixture with a quality of 0.3. Assuming the expansion valve can

    be treated as an adiabatic steady flow throttle valve.

    (a) What is the temperature and phase of the refrigerant entering the throttle?

    How to solve this fluids question?

    Water at 20 degrees C flows through a reducing section that is held together

    by a flange, as shown in the sketch. The inflow pipe diameter is D1, the outflow diameter

    is D2, and the outflow pressure is atmospheric. If the inflow velocity is V1, estimate the

    total force on the flange bolts.

  • What affects the wavelength of radiation?

    For a greenhouse, they install glass: it lets in short wavelength from the sun, but does not let out long wavelength escape. So what determined that the wavelength coming from the sun is a short wavelength, and how did it become long wavelength that is emitted from the greenhouse?

  • Heat transfer question?

    One end of a rod is held at constant temperature To, while the other end is insulated. Is it correct that after a very long time, the entire rod is To? Mathematically, dT/dx = C, where C is a constant, so C is zero if you know that dT/dx is zero at x = L?

  • Probability question?

    Traffic engineers install 10 light bulbs. The probability that a bulb fails in 10000 hours is 0.25. Each bulb fails independently.

    a) What is the probability that fewer than 2 of the original bulbs fail within 10000 hours?

    b) What is the probability that more than 4 of the original bulbs will need replacing after 10 000 hours?
