    What type or what for? If you mean the stuff used for smoke effects, like disco & stage smoke / fog or model trains? The commonest type is based on propylene glycol or glycerine. You can make you own for most general "fog machines" by mixing glycerine and water, with two parts water to one glycerine. eg. Empty a bottle of glycerine in to a jug then use the bottle to add two bottles of water to the jug. Mix thoroughly and you have your smoke fluid. It needs using within a week or two as it can grow mould and bacteria. You can add a few drops (literally, two or three drips) of bleach to a large batch to help stop it going bad. Ready made fluid is not expensive; it may be cheaper than buying large quantities of glycerine eg. https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lig... Some older machines did use oil, something like odour-free kerosine - but that system is obsolete, they are very dangerous as the smoke is highly flammable, the machine is almost like an un-lit flamethrower... Another type uses a wire rack loaded with dry ice, which can be lowered in to hot water. The result is literally frozen steam. That's the least harmful as there are no fulmes and no residue to condense on furniture or floors - but the machines are big and you need a good supply of dry ice.

    Best answer: That will be the High/Low range select, common on many four wheel drive SUVs / Land Rovers etc. Low range gives you a second set of transmission speeds, very low speed and high torque. They are basically for off-road maneuvering or driving in very bad conditions or possibly towing / pulling a heavy load or stranded vehicle. For normal road use, leave in High. Only change while the vehicle is not moving. It will not do any harm to try to, to get an idea of the difference. Neutral disconnects the transmission from the wheels. In some vehicles, an auxiliary power take of facility can be installed to eg. run a generator or provide power to external equipment (like a tractor power take off shaft). That can be used with the selector in neutral.

  • Why our satellite need escape velocity as much at 28,080km/h, when Earth gravity are less outside atmosphere and Earth rotating at 1656km/h?

    Escape velocity and orbital velocity are two very different things. The strength of gravity reduces with distance, but it's not because of the atmosphere. It's strength is proportional to the inverse square of the distance ratio. eg. The surface of the Earth is about 4000 miles from the earths centre of gravity. You need to be 4000 miles... show more
    Escape velocity and orbital velocity are two very different things. The strength of gravity reduces with distance, but it's not because of the atmosphere. It's strength is proportional to the inverse square of the distance ratio. eg. The surface of the Earth is about 4000 miles from the earths centre of gravity. You need to be 4000 miles above the surface (2x the distance) for gravity to reduce to a quarter the surface strength (divided by two squared). 40,000 miles from the centre of the earth, 10 x distance, it would be 1/100th the strength at the surface, etc. Escape velocity is the speed that something in a ballistic path needs to travel at away from a planet or star etc. so that it never falls back; although it's slowing, it's not slowing as fast as gravity is weakening. On the other hand, to get a satellite into orbit, as well as getting to a suitable altitude, it must also be given enough "sideways" velocity to achieve a stable orbit. A low orbit at has a period of eg. about 90 minutes; that means over 25,000 miles (the circumference of the Earth) plus the extra distance due to altitude, in 90 mins; over 16,000 miles per hour "sideways" at release. For a high, geostationary orbit, it needs 25,000 miles altitude and roughly (2 * 25,000 * pi) = 157,000 miles in 24 hours = roughly 6500 miles per hour lateral speed.

As of this time, no machine or computer is capable of those things. Present robots are just complex tools and any actions are the responsibility of their builders or programmers. Things or people that cannot understand consequences of their actions are not evil, even if the do cause harm. For example, tf a toddler finds a box of matches and starts a fire, it's not evil - it's negligence by whoever was supposed to be supervising the child. The same equally applies to non self-aware machines that have no knowledge of consequences.

    Depending on the era and machines: Engraved or etched printing plates, assembled character forms or Linotype etc. Various systems are still used now. Hand-engraved blocks or plates have been used to print for a very long time... Initially wook, in the 1400s, then metal - eg. copper. Wax coated plates can be used, allowing just the wax surface to be scraped away then the plate etched in acid, rather than directly cutting the metal. The "Linotype" machine was invented in the late 1800s. That worked from a typewriter style keyboard and cast molten metal to form line of text printing blocks automatically as the operator typed, rather than individual letter shape pieced having to be assembled by hand to print text as was done before that. They became the main printing system for a large amount of material, especially newspapers. Some were still in use into the 1980s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linotype_m... Photographs can be transferred to printing plates by using a photoresist and "screen" - eg. basic newspaper photos, where the image is made up of different size dots. Again, the plates are etched where the retist has been washed away. By using colour separation filters and making plates for each print colour, colour images can be printed.

All compromises of such as facebook accounts are done by social engineering - tricking people to give away their security info - and not by directly cracking accounts, it is literally impossible. That's why such as "phishing" emails are so common, it's the only way left for criminals to get in to peoples accounts. And a lot of people still fall for them...

Or, the seller has broken ebay rules - sent the wrong item, not sent anything within a reasonable time etc. You can then claim a refund regardless of what the seller says in the listing. For the first, contact the seller via the link in the item "Send a message to the seller" type, telling them you no longer want the item. For the second, use the "Not received" contact link or use the ebay dispute procedure. If neither of those applies, you have no right to a refund. Its a legal contract as soon as you bid or buy and you have to go through with it. If you very quickly apologise to the seller and say it's a mistake, they may agree to cancel a sale - but if they refuse you must just accept it.
