• Could posting the same questions over and over also be a reason for someone to be blocked from Facebook groups?

    Yes. It's likely a breach of the rules. It's annoying to other people. It makes you look like a troll or spammer, whether intentional or not.

  • Is using a ROM an alternative to using a binary multiplier, or is it part of the binary multiplier?

    Overall, it depends on the design and scale of numbers being used. For your example, a ROM look-up table on its own is an ideal solution as it's only a small range of possible values at the input; the size of the ROM (number of address lines) is the total of the bit lengths of the two input values. In a larger or software-based solution, it... show more
    Overall, it depends on the design and scale of numbers being used. For your example, a ROM look-up table on its own is an ideal solution as it's only a small range of possible values at the input; the size of the ROM (number of address lines) is the total of the bit lengths of the two input values. In a larger or software-based solution, it could be all ROM up to a point, then a mix of ROM for multiplication of eg 8x8 bits plus adders to combine results for a longer (or wider) overall calculation. The "ROM" function can be implemented in software as a look-up table of predefined values, with the input bits forming an offset in to that table. They can be used for multiplication or more likely such as SIN or LOG lookup, to by pass slow software calculations in a high speed system.

  • My parents downloaded the hum app and tracked my phone w/o me knowing and can now see everything i do. how do i stop this?

    Wait until you are 18 and then move out. If you are under 18 or living in your parents house, you obey their rules, like it or not. (Remember all adults used to be teenagers and we all know *exactly* how teenagers minds work! )

  • Do individual computers have any "signature" by which they can be identified over the internet? Not the IP address, but the physical device?

That does not directly identify anyone - but it's a bit like like a fingerprint; if the computer is ever checked by police in the future it can be connected... show more

    With your 10, 15, 20 MHz example from your comment: You split the input to three separate, individually tuned, radio receivers and demodulators. It's no different in principle that having three normal radio receivers side by side tuned to different stations. However, for interconnecting small devices & microcontrollers etc., you are better off using a CDMA type system where each transmits bursts including an ID as to which unit it's from / to, at variable intervals, checking no other unit is transmitting first. For stuff that only needs rare updates just transmit each burst several times with random delays between, so some bursts will always get through. Either way, everything works on a single frequency. If you are using a wired system, just use CANBUS. It's simple, quite a few MCUs have it built in or you can get cheap add-on boards for most others. The interface ICs handle all bust checking and collision avoidance stuff.

  • How long does it take for your nerves to respond to touch?

    Best answer: It depends on the type of nerve and the length of it's path to the brain. For touch, the speed is anything from 3 to 30m per second See the table "Sensory fibre types" in this article.

  • What does the Power output ( watts) mean when it comes to buying speakers?

    It's how much power - from an amplifier - the loudspeaker can take. As long as the watts rating is "RMS" power, the sound volume should be approximately proportional to the power rating, assuming you are running the speaker(s) at maximum power. Note that a lot of places use imaginary figures for power - "music" power or PMP... show more
    It's how much power - from an amplifier - the loudspeaker can take. As long as the watts rating is "RMS" power, the sound volume should be approximately proportional to the power rating, assuming you are running the speaker(s) at maximum power. Note that a lot of places use imaginary figures for power - "music" power or PMP / PMPO. Those have no relation at all to the technical "RMS" power ratings. If a maker or seller does not list RMS ratings and other technical specifications, stay away from them! (To give you an idea how ludicrous music power ratings can be, I have some amplified speakers rated 100W PMPO that only take 4W from the wall - the maximum possible RSP power is around 2W, half the input power). Speakers also vary somewhat in efficiency in converting electrical power to sound. In some cases, a lower rated speaker that has a higher efficiency can be louder than a higher rated speaker.

  • Do SSD drives actually 'wear out' if used often, as someone here recently claimed?

    Not exactly "wear out", but eventually parts of the memory may no longer allow data to be written without errors. Reading data has no effect, only writing to the drive.

    Not exactly "wear out", but eventually parts of the memory may no longer allow data to be written without errors. Reading data has no effect, only writing to the drive. The number of writes is extremely high and more recent types of SSD also use techniques to avoid the same memory areas being written to excessively by re-mapping the data areas. That's all invisible to the user / computer itself. The only thing to avoid is trying to run a defrag on an SSD.. It does no good and because data is internally re-mapped the defrag program's rearrangements to not necessarily cause data to be written to consecutive physical clusters anyway - it just adds to the write count of the memory.

A scientist should perform enough experiments to confirm a valid and repeatable result for themselves, then report the results together with the methodology of the experiment so others can perform the same experiment and independently check the results. That also assumes the experiment relates to something new or unconfirmed, or appears to show a flaw in an existing theory. If it's something for eg. a demonstration and simply confirms an already well-accepted theory there is nothing to report.
