Hi, normally when we try to analyse a structural beam with composite section, we apply transformed section method or so. But what if two beams are just put together (one onto another one) instead of having a composite relation (e.g. glued together), how am I going to analyse the forces and...
Hello everyone.
I have a question about compressive strength of concrete. It is said that (in my country) 150 mm x 150 mm x 150 mm concrete cube is used for concrete testing. Someone asks me why 100 mm x 100 mm x 100 mm is not used. In fact, I know that sometimes it is allowed or even preferred...
I have a question about the XOR gates. Are those XOR gates for doing 2's complement (i am thinking in this way)?
But I know that 2's complement is not just inverting 1 and 0, but also needs to add 1 after that. It seems that the above design cannot do that?

Hi, it's me again.
Now I am going to design a 4-bit magnitude comparator using just ONE 4-bit adder and infinitely large number of gates (AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, XOR, XNOR) for signed numbers (negative binary).

Okay, This time it's an exam question. I am doing some past papers and there are questions about comparators which are not introduced in this course (this course is preliminary course for engineering students who are interested in electrical, electronic or computer...
If it is HT, then no matter the next one is T or H, TH already occurs before HH, right?
If it is TT, then also no matter the next one is T or H, TH already occurs before HH, right?

I understand 1st and 3rd question now.
For 2nd question,
my approach now is
let p be the P(accpetable) in 1st question.
P(more than 2 tests) = 1 - [ P(1st acceptable) + P(1st rejected, 2nd accpetable) ] = 1 - [ p + (1-p)p ]. Is this correct?

Hi. It's me again. Right now I have some troubles with Thevenin's and Norton's theorem.
Here is the circuit.
I have to find the thevenin voltage Vth and thevenin resistance Rth and solve the circuit when there is a 2000Ω resistor connected to A and B.
Then, I try to solve it...
First, for the...
Here is the circuit. I have to find the voltage across each resistor and the current i1 and i2.
My attempts are the following:
By KCL,
i2 + i1 = 0.1 A
By KVL,
3 - 5 - 100i1 + 1100i2 = 0
∴ i1 = 0.09 A, i2 = 0.01A
∴ Voltage across 100Ω resistor = 0.09 × 100 = 9 V, voltage across 1100Ω resistor...

As no current flow through these two nodes (or just 1 node as their potentials are the same), so current from C to D means from C to E?
Hi. I have moved on to the next question. There is something I am confused.
The question wants us to express Rf in terms of R such that vo = -15vi.
After doing the last task, I think I understand the flow of solving it. But here still exists a problem.
My attempts and question are listed in...
In the following circuit, compute the values of R1 and R3 in terms of R2 and R4, such that vo is always equal to v1 - 5v2.
I have marked 3 nodes, A, B and C. v+ = v- as assumption for the op-amp.
Consider node A.
v- = v+ = v1 × (R2 / (R1+R2))
Consider node B and C.
