  • Do detonators like this exist?

    Do detonators like this exist?

    Now, I understand most of you will think this is probably some stupid thing to ask. But, I was watching an anime that is based around real things, not things that have happened but real objects like thermite, tnt and atomic bombs. Anyway, I just got curious when I saw a specific scene. The scene had shown a... show more
    Now, I understand most of you will think this is probably some stupid thing to ask. But, I was watching an anime that is based around real things, not things that have happened but real objects like thermite, tnt and atomic bombs. Anyway, I just got curious when I saw a specific scene. The scene had shown a hand detonator, wireless which required a single button and it detonates an explosive. I know there are some detonators like it, but I am talking about a metal one not one of those cheap plastic ones. If these metal hand detonators or whatever you want to call them do exist, what name do they go by? Picture: http://prntscr.com/hbf035 (I have also attached a picture, not sure if it will work, so I'll just give a link as well)

  • Is it worth taking engineering in university just for the job?

    I'm not interested in engineering but don't know what else I could do I just want a job. Most of the other degrees seem pretty useless and I'm not interested in anything really.

If I bought the old edition, do you think the content would be extremely different? Does it even matter if I don t have the current edition? For example, I m buying a history textbook, so would there be drastic changes to the content?

  • New well pump: submersible pump not working?

    Best answer: You can disconnect the feed wires from the power source and measure resistance. I agree with Y; if they set the pump too high it is on them to replace it. If it was sucking up sand that could have trashed the bearings and then that burnt the motor. But again, that should be on the installers. I'd get some... show more

    I'd get some string, tie a small weight on it, and lower it into the well until you hit water. The see how deep that it. Compare that to the well logs [you should have been given a copy of the well logs; complain to the health department if they won't give you one].

  • Why are so many companies demanding engineers?

    I mean at college, when looking for jobs and at career fairs, at least half of the companies want engineering only. That is so annoying. They (engineering majors) are not the only people in the world, somebody has to take the music, arts and humanities and other majors. You can't just them out on the street?

  • Electricity, ampere and devices?

    Hello, this is a theoretical question, LED has to have a resistor put in front of it if the current is too high, does a fan that is rated for 4A and is supplied with 20A current have to have a resistor too? or will it simply draw the 4A its rated for, and pass on 16A to the next components? (this is a PC fan,... show more
    Hello, this is a theoretical question, LED has to have a resistor put in front of it if the current is too high, does a fan that is rated for 4A and is supplied with 20A current have to have a resistor too? or will it simply draw the 4A its rated for, and pass on 16A to the next components? (this is a PC fan, ) so in a nutshell, I have 3 fans that are rated for 4A, but sometime will draw less current as they will spin at lower speeds, is it ok to connect all 3 fans to a 20A output despite the overall current used by the fans being 2A up to 12A? (with same voltage.) or will it damage them? if it will damage, how do you go around it?
