• ### I replaced the diverter stem in my shower; no I can't get the water to come out of the shower head.?

I also replaced the seat. So I put the old stem back in with the new seat, NO GO! Then I put the old stem in with the old seat, NO GO! F&%K! Lastly, I put the new stem in with the old seat, NO GO!

So what the hell is going on?

• ### If I have an 8" wide brick wall that weighs 80psf...?

and runs 44 feet, how can I determine the height? It sounds so simple, but for the life of me I can't figure it out.

• ### How do you determine deflection?

When finding the deflection of a beam at ANY point, on a beam supported at both ends, with a distributed load, we summed moments about THE point to one side of the beam or the other and included the reactions in our calculations.

I was looking at another student's solution from another class for a cantilevered beam, one support, with a distributed load and the reactions were not included. Is this right?

• ### How to find the length of a vertical curve?

In transportation eng., how do you find the length of a vertical curve if you're given two stations, 100 ft apart, and their elevations and nothing else?

• ### Where can I get an RS Means book?

I've heard I can get one for very cheap...\$1. It would obviously be an older version, but that's ok, as long as it's 2008 or newer.

• ### What is the punch through strength of 3/4" plywood.?

I need to build an elevated pad to support up to 6,000 lb. The material would be moved from a freight elevator into the building on a pallet jack. I would be using 5 ply, 3/4" plywood class 1 with a capacity of 1,600 psf when supported at 8" c/c.

The jack has 4 wheels; 6000 lb./4 = 1,500 lb. per wheel. This is within the limits of a single sheet of plywood. Kind of...I'm leaving out the psf or psi. However, if I take the actual contact area of the wheels, approx. 2 sq. in. each, I get 1,500 lb/2 in^2 = 750 psi. Way more than the 11.11 psi I figured from the allowable 1,600 psf.

Am I missing something or what? Thanks for any help.

• ### Sedimentation process?

Which type of flow is better for removing sediment from a fluid, plug flow or completely mixed flow?

• ### Convert mg/L into ppm.?

I have 5.6 mg/L of Fe in a solution with a density of 2000 g/L. I need the answer in ppm. Is it as simple as converting 2000 g into 2,000,000 mg and dividing 5.6 by 2,000,000? A little shove in the right direction would be great.

• ### Light(s) not working.?

How can I check to see if a light fixture has gone bad? I've replaced the light bulb but still no light. I have two lights that have suddenly stopped working.

• ### Central heat & air; the fan doesn't come on with the heating element?

Well, not always. Most of the time you can hear the fan come on. Sometimes however, I'll notice the lights flicker but I won't hear the fan. A few minutes later, I'll smell a burning plastic smell...so I run to the thermostat and shut off everything. .

I turn the fan control to "on" and it works; then I turn the heat back on and feel warm air. I then turn the fan control back to "auto" and everything seems to work normally for about 24 hrs. when it Starts again and I go through the above steps. This has happened twice since Thursday afternoon.

Any ideas? ...a faulty fan switch...some relay between the heating element and the fan... no wires or components feel hot or appear to have melted.

• ### Trying to determine buckling?

L = 8 in A-36 steel rod

rod dia = 0.249 in

I = 0.0001887 in^4

E = 30,000 lbs/in^2 (psi)

Using the buckling formula P=[3.14^2 x E x I]/ L^2

I get [(3.14)^2(30000)(0.0001887)]8^2

which is 0.87299 lbs.

This can't be a buckling load. It should be something around 1200 lbs. according to the instructor.

What am I doing wrong?

• ### Plumbing problem; reverse course.?

What would cause sewage to reverse flow and come back out the toilet? No one was at home at the time so it's not like someone made a "deposit" and stopped up the thing and caused it to overflow.

My girlfriend said it looked like someones azz exploded in there.

• ### Determine the wavelength.?

A double slit system is used to measure the wavelength of light. With d=15x10^-6 m, L=2.2 m, m=1 and y=7.1cm, find the wavelength.

The equation to use is y=([(lambda)(L)]/d) x m

The book's, the instructor's and my answer are all different. What gives? Rounding error? All range from 420nm to 484nm.
