I think it was jiga-watts, which is a made up SI prefix right? gigawatts would be pronounced like a gig of ram or whatever.

I think Christopher Lloyd was simply pronouncing the giga with a hard G sound, sounding like J.

Trying to catch up on some of these here. Stealth's uber-specific question is definately out of range of my personal knowledge, but Im sure I can find out.

Anyway, a boiler. Theres been quite a few different variants, but at its core a boiler needs 2 chambers, one to burn some combustible stuff like coal, and one to hold water to heat to steam.

The most effecient, the type used in steam locomotives at their peak, used a series of pipes running horizontally along the length of the boiler. The hot air and gasses from the firebox would go through these tubes on the way to the smokestack, and the water chamber that the tubes passed through meant the water had tons of surface area contacting the "heat", making for very effecient boiling.

Well, the only things that can affect speed are the propulsion force, the drag, and the force of gravity.

The easiest to alter would be gravity. Drop the angle of attack, and gravity is on your side, increasing the speed. Put it in a dive and go REALLY fast!


Props to you, Mr. Shenk.  I half expected the typical MOAR POWA response.

What is it called when there is a bowling pin stuck on top of the rack, the rack is stuck halfway down, and it looks like there is a bowling pin stuck in the gutter?

(these are simple bowling mechanic terms)

Its a ridiculously complicated measurement for pumping liquids. According to my bible, its basically how much stuff your pump can pump, factoring in damn near everything someone could think of. Atmospheric pressure, specific gravity of the fluid, specs of your pump, and how high you want to pump the stuff.

The hole in the reciever? I asked the same question, mainly when I plugged the thing up and it didnt work.

It lets the air trapped between the hammer and the valve out, otherwise its like an air shock absorber, the hammer wont hit the valve correctly.

4:  What is a pulsejet and how does it work?

5:  What is a Rhombic drive used for?

6:  How does VTEC work? (Automotive, not college)

7:  How does an Automatic Transmission's hydraulic control system work?  I'm referring to this number.  I just want you to explain the various valves their input/output.

8:  You might as well explain the operation of the planetary gearset as well.  I won't insult your intelligence by asking you how a torque converter works.
