Re: your favorite equations for build seasion

C(amps) = V/ohms. Seems to be very useful this year. A lot of people seem to be burning out stuff by putting them to incorrect electrical loads (D-Links, for instance X.X).

Also, R + T + M = (Occasional Lack of) Knowledge

Re: your favorite equations for build seasion

My favorite equation of all time, for all time, at all times, is the one which relates five fundamental mathematical constants using addition, multiplication, and exponentiation.

0: the additive identity element
1: the multiplicative identity element
e: the natural base
pi: the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter
i: the square root of negative one


e^(i*pi) + 1 = 0


I wish I could do superscripts properly using vBulletin.



My second favorite equation is actually just an approximation: 1 foot ≈ 1 nanosecond

Re: your favorite equations for build seasion

"Circumference = pi*D".......pause for effect........"think about it".

Also:

"pie = crust + filling"....... more pause....... "Oh, you mean "pi". OK, that's 22/7 rounded to the second place.......What?........Did you want 3.1415927"?

Re: your favorite equations for build seasion

For me, it's these equations:

T=F*d*sin(theta)
Law of cosines [c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 2*a*b*cos(theta)]
Law of sines [sin(a)/A = sin(b)/B = sin(c)/C]
F=k*x
k=A*E/L
