Please vote on baby names for Kenlyn.

Kenlyn called yesterday asking us to choose a favorite baby name out of these three:

1. Dylan
2. Zander
3. Conner

Stephanie chose Dylan and I chose Zander.

Per Kenlyn's request please post YOUR favorite name of the three in my comments section. I'll pass the info on to Kenlyn. Her son is due in late August or early September. I'll be sure to post the new baby's name as soon as I know what the final name choice is.

Ohm's Law Wheel


Ohm’s Law Wheel. Power in electrical systems (P) is measured in watts. Resistive appliances such as a hair dryer or lightbulb are rated in watts. Power is computed as shown in the Ohm’s law wheel, in Figure 8.2.7. The relationships among power, current, voltage, and resistance are important to fire investigators because of the need to find out how many amperes were drawn in a specific case. See Figure 8.2.7 for a summary of these relationships. If, for example, several appliances were found plugged into one extension cord or many appliances were plugged into several receptacles on the same circuit, the investigator could calculate the current draw to find whether the ampacity of the conductor was exceeded.
