How long does it take to build up a bike?

Our average build time is 35 minutes if all goes well. Longer if we have a "problem child" or a high end build where nearly everything requires assembly. The only things that come installed on your high end road bikes is the rear wheel, crankset and headset. Everything else from cables to grip tape has…

What are the essential parameters of passive solar house research and design?

The key aspects of passive solar design are: thermal mass, insulation, angle and direction of the sun (orientation), windows (placement and operable), overhangs and shading, ventilation and circulation, surface colors, and geographical location (see Figure 1). Click to see full answer What are passive design elements? Passive design strategies are based on four basic principles,…

What has more internal energy water or ice or steam?

Steam can hold five or six times as much potential energy as an equivalent mass of water. When water is heated in a boiler, it begins to absorb energy. Depending on the pressure in the boiler, the water will evaporate at a certain temperature to form steam. Click to see full answer What is steam…

What is the difference between a 2 stage and single stage air conditioner?

Benefits of Two-Stage Cooling The lower stage capacity is able to maintain the pre-set temperature longer than if the system turns off when it reaches the pre-set temperature. This allows for steady cooling comfort in your home. Click to see full answer What is the advantage of a two-stage compressor? Improved efficiency: Two-stage compressors perform…

What happens during post immersion collapse?

Four stages of cold-water immersion leading to incapacitation and death: • Stage 1, Initial immersion responses or cold shock; • Stage 2, Short-term immersion or swimming failure; • Stage 3, Long-term immersion or hypothermia; Stage 4, Post-rescue collapse. Click to see full answer What happens in Stage 3 long-term immersion hypothermia? Stage 3 or long-term…

Is the Otto cycle reversible?

The air standard Otto cycle is modeled as a closed system with a fixed air/fuel mass, and uses the following process assumptions: 1-2 Compression which is reversible and adiabatic. 2-3 Heat addition from fuel. 3-4 Expansion which is reversible and adiabatic. Click to see full answer Are Diesel cycles reversible? Diesel Cycle – Processes In…

What is air bottle in a ship?

This is to maintain positive pressure inside the lifeboat in case of abandoning the ship in toxic environment. Positive pressure inside lifeboat ensures that toxic gases don't find its way inside lifeboat. Every month we should check the pressure of the air bottles.

How do you cool down an engine fast?

Put your car in neutral or park and then rev the engine. This makes the fan and the water pump work faster, which pulls more air and more water through your car's radiator. This increased circulation cools down the engine. Pull over and open the hood. Click to see full answer How do I lower…

How do you control the speed of a water pump?

Adjusting the speed is to adjust the pump power, head and flow. The two-phase ordinary water pump can adjust the speed by changing the input voltage to change the power of the pump, or by inputting the PWM adjustable duty cycle power supply. Click to see full answer How do you adjust the flow rate…
