    Is IPT worth it?

    I did my HSC in 2005, and am now doing Computer Engineering at UNSW. I found that IPT was a great course - ok, there was lots of definitions, or bookwork, etc, but, I managed to get a great topic for my project, had a lot of fun, and did well in the course. As for whether it helps at uni...

    multiple choice...WTF?

    yeah, I think the ester (Ethyl pentanoate) is pineapple flavouring, but not certain on that. It is a flavour though (took back my textbook). Any of you 100% MC'ers know?

    multiple choice...WTF?

    while I am here along with the rest of you looking at how I / you went, I have to relise that the BOS marks the paper, so i get to relax & realise that it's all over. I am not against talking abot the q's (i already have been), but it is such a relaxing feeling doing what i have just jone...

    multiple choice...WTF?

    that's the answer (weak acid/salt of that acid) as for 15, thiosulphate/o2 ratio is 4: 1, but if you go through the equations, that halves again, = 0.30 i got 0.052% for the calc % whatever it was with the TDS one as well (yay, i can do some chem) - not my strongest subject. As for me...

    Subwoofer Air Vent

    just thought - i think that the amp may be too big for the speakers (not always bad), but they are just peaking - & distorting, & hence sound bad. Maybe try some better speakers (borrow from a friend & try it), then you'll know whether it's the speakers or something before that. I like amps...

    What is a communication protocol?
