Passer rating (also known as quarterback rating, QB rating, or passing efficiency in college football) is a measure of the performance of passers, primarily quarterbacks, in gridiron football. There are two formulas currently in use: one used by both the National Football League (NFL) and Canadian Football League (CFL), and the other used in NCAA football. Passer rating is calculated using a player's passing attempts, completions, yards, touchdowns, and interceptions. Passer rating in the NFL is on a scale from 0 to 158.3. Passing efficiency in college football is on a scale from −731.6 to 1261.6.
Since 1973, passer rating has been the official formula used by the NFL to determine its passing leader.

Hi,
From suppliers of bearings, some of them specify the maximum bearing (surface) pressure or the maximum load rating (static or dynamic). What's the difference between this two? And which is most commonly used during selecting and calculating bearings in a mechanical design?

Hello everyone. I need to calculate solar energy output (E) from a solar farm. The calculations are based on values from total module surface area in m² (A), panel efficiency (r), solar irradiance (GB) and losses (L) due to dust, cold temperature and ageing, which is estimated to be 0.75. Since...

A player has (wins+0.5draws)/(wins+draws+losses)=(200+0.5*0)/(200+0+0) and another has (1200+0.5*0)/(1200+0+1000). This rating shows correctly that the first player is much stronger than the second. Whereas the Elo, Glicko and Truskill rates (roughly about) the first with 800+200*8-0*8=2400 and...
