  1. a-c with d only when he’s not in jail.
  2. overcurrent – that or service personnel or EMS crews depending.
  3. what object? mass, volume perhaps the SI units of kg or cubic meters. The Imperial system is a bit different measuring weight not mass in pounds. There are plenty of ways to measure objects, and a variety of units used.
  4. a
  5. Corn (by dollars and weight and area of planted crop)

    5 Common Causes of Stucco Cracks (When to Worry)

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~
2) What trips a main disconnect breaker?
Lightning strikes, power surges from the utility company, or an overload to the electrical panel can all cause the main breaker to trip. If an individual circuit breaker fails and loses its ability to trip as designed, it may actually be the main breaker that trips to provide the secondary safety shutoff.

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~
3) What are the two units used to measure objects?
mass and volume
Mass and volume are two units used to measure objects. Mass is the amount of matter an object contains, while volume is how much space it takes up.
Example: A bowling ball and a basketball are about the same volume as each other, but the bowling ball has much more mass.

4) Marcel Cyr wants to know:
This is a secondary effect in shears and especially movements of frame members induced by vertical loads acting on laterally displaced building frame
a) P-delta effect
b) Orthogonal Effect
c) Vertical Effect
d) Irregularity Effect
e) truss uplift
b Orthogonal Effect

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~
5) What is the most grown crop in the US?
Turfgrass is actually the biggest irrigated crop in the United States.
It’s everywhere — on our lawns, peaking out of sidewalk cracks, blanketing golf courses.
A study, published in the journal Environmental Management, found that over 40 million acres of land in the continental US has some form of lawn on it. We spend 36 billion annually on lawn care.
