    I can't decide EE or CE

    EE and CE are very, very hard and very similar programs, no matter which one you choose to finish everything depends where will you get a job. CE is more stressful, a nerve wrecking job, IMO.

    Sizing Circuit Breakers?

    Yes CB protects conductors but the main protection is for the appliance and/or whatever is connected to those conductors and CBs. Choosing CB we have to read manufacturers specs and if specs on the namplate are 37.5 Amps that would be the main starting factor in deciding CB size, IMO. But...

    Sizing Circuit Breakers?

    Since I am a girl and as you can see the most brave one to be the first one to tackle your question I would say the breaker should be rated 40Amps bcs you say that nameplate specs are 37.5 Amps. If there is a high starting momentum then max Amperage is increased to 45 A. Your wire gauge= wire...

    False GFCI Tripping

    It's me again; lets make sure we understand one another; GFCI breaker is installed to trip the power on all receptacles that get power from that GFCI breaker. GFCI outlet will disable just the appliance that is plugged into that particular GFCI outlet. Again: GFCI breaker WILL trip on the...

    False GFCI Tripping

    GFCI breaker doesn't trip bcs of the load and its purpose is to trip bcs of the leakage=insulation is very bad and/or moisture. GFCI breaker would trip if the load is very high same like any other regular breaker but I am sensing in your case; or you didn't connect it properly that white coiled...

    Schools Advice on Universities in Canada for international students.

    I would rather attend McMaster or Ryerson bcs University of Toronto is more for "theorists" , while McMaster and Ryerson are more practical, real life problems, I am at University of Toronto and I know the difference. Yes, I would like to attend Waterloo but my father says I have to stay home.

    Social Life of a Physics Grad Student

    The social life of mine I could say is nonexistent, that is how I think. But, in another hand how my farher thinks I am OK. Since I am a girl of Serbian (Yugoslav) origin, not 19 yet and a 2nd year EE student my father thinks it is the best to stay home and be A GOOD GIRL:-)
