Introduction

Post by HighFrequency » Sun Apr 17, 2005 10:14 am

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Mike, and I'm in an Electronics Engineering program, ans we just started into programming Microcontrollers. In this course we will be covering the 16F628A, and 16F877A. I imagine I will have questions from time to time, and I know forums are great places to get info.<p>Anyhow, I look forward to interacting with you, and gleaning information. Good bye for now.
There is only one correct answer, mine.

Welcome.<p>Your tagline sounds like a former teacher of mine.<p>HIM: "What'e the boiling point of water?"<p>ME:
(A) "373 K."
(B) "Wherever its vapor pressure equals the ambient pressure."
(C) "Depends on the concentration of any solutes."<p>HIM: "WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! It's 212 degrees Fahrenheit, stupid!"<p>ME: "Hm. Oh, well. Another 'F' for Terri."<p>And I am the center of the Observable Universe. :)

jwax and David Bridgen:<p>All as my "wrong" answers B and C indicated. <p>There's also a slight difference for higher concentrations of deuterium and tritium oxides, but that comes under C.<p>[ April 21, 2005: Message edited by: terri ]</p>

terri- What would your teacher have said when the thermometer read above 212 F, at standard pressure, in pure water, in a clean glass, in a microwave oven, without boiling?
Now there's a relavant question!
:D
