### How many jelly beans are in a jar thats 23 inches around and 17 inches high?

V = (pi)(r square)(h) V= Volume (the amount we need to calculate)
pi = 3.14...
r = radius of cylinder (remember this is half that of the circumference)
h = height of cylinder

To make it easier for you below are the figures for the Cylinder.
Height = 17 inches.
Now use the formula above to calculate it.

For the Jelly Bean its,
Height = 0.5
Use the same formula above for jelly bean as well.

Once you have both figures, divide Volume of Jar by Volume of Jelly e.g. VolumeofJar/VolumeofJelly

AND VOILA, you have the amount of jelly beans in a jar (Round the figure out)

Cheers!

Tip

Do you want to make delicious jams, chutneys and other preserved foods? Here is how to sterilize your jars and keep your food safe from bacterial contamination.

First thing is washing very well the jars and their covers under running water.
It is best to sterilize the jars right when you intend to fill them so that they don't have time to get contaminated.

Take a large pot with high sides and cover its bottom with a cloth. Then set the jars on the cloth, their opening facing up.
With other cloths separate each jar from the other to avoid their breaking while boiling. Here is a picture from GialloZafferano:

At this point pour water in the pot until it covers all the jars and then turn on the fire, bringing water to boiling. You can then turn down the fire and leave the jars in the water 30 more minutes.
10 minutes before the end put in the water also the caps of the jars that need to be sterilized. Like in this picture:

After the 30 minutes are over you can turn off the fire and let it cool off.
When water reaches room temperature you can take out the jars and let them drain well, on a dry cloth. Another way of drying them is putting them in the oven at minimum temperature. This would dry them faster and kill whatever bacteria is left.
When the jars are completely dry they are ready to be used for jams and all kinds of preserved goods.
Enjoy!

If you have the glass jar then purchase either a new rubber seal for the blade to jar fitment or replace the blade assembly, it will be one or the other. If you have plastic beaker then get a new beaker, it is sold as a single assembly.

### What causes the oil to leak?

1. Oil generally leaks because of mechanical failures.
To contain oils there needs to be a mechanical seal of some sort. This may be for the sake of argument a rubber ring or a flat strip or gasket seal of an appropriate material or even a propriety sealing agent which can be squeezed from a tube.
Simplistically a jar can be filled with oil and the lid which has a seal in it is placed on top secure enough to stop the contents leaking.
If that jar is connected to other jars by pipes to form a system they too need to have seals inserted where they join the jars so that there there are no leaks.
2. Seal failures can be caused by heat, chemical corrosion and or erosion , mechanical stress such as vibrations or bending or longevity of material properties such as the elasticity depreciating. Finally other causes can be attributed to wrongly fitted or inappropriate types of seals being fitted.

### 95 villager has right front brake drag, replaced the brakes, rotor, hoses, calipers and installed a used abs modulator. orginally it was right front left rear issues, not it is only right front

This type of problem can occur if the wrong fluid has been used at some earlier stage,in which case all seals need to be replaced along with master cylinder overhaul.

Prep Time:45 minInactive Prep Time:24 hr 0 minCook Time:1 hr 0 min Level:Intermediate Serves:10 (8-ounce) jars Ingredients
• 1 3/4 pounds oranges, 4 to 5 medium
• 1 lemon, zest finely grated and juiced
• 6 cups water
• 3 pounds plus 12 ounces sugar
• Special Equipment: 10 (8-ounce) canning jars with rings and lids, funnel, tongs, ladle, and 12-quart pot
Directions Wash the oranges and lemon thoroughly. Cut the oranges into 1/8-inch slices using a mandolin, removing the seeds as you go. Stack the orange slices and cut them into quarters. Place the oranges into an 8-quart stainless steel pot. Add the lemon zest and juice and the water to the pot, set over high heat and bring to a boil, approximately 10 minutes. Once boiling, reduce the heat to maintain a rapid simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 40 minutes or until the fruit is very soft.

While the fruit is cooking, fill a large pot (at least 12-quart) 3/4 full with water, set over high heat and bring to a boil. Place 10 (8-ounce) jars and rings, canning funnel, ladle, and tongs into the boiling water and make sure the water covers the jars by at least an inch. Boil for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the lids and leave everything in the pot until the marmalade is ready.
Meanwhile, place a small plate in the freezer. Increase the heat under the orange mixture to return to full boil. Add the sugar and stir the mixture continually, until it reaches 222 to 223 degrees F on a deep-fry or candy thermometer, and darkens in color, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. You may need to adjust the heat in order to prevent boil over. Test the readiness of the marmalade by placing a teaspoon of the mixture onto the chilled plate and allowing it to sit for 30 seconds. Tilt the plate. The mixture should be a soft gel that moves slightly. If mixture is thin and runs easily, it is not ready.
Remove jars from the water and drain on a clean towel. Place a canning funnel onto the top of 1 of the jars and ladle in the marmalade just to below the bottom of the threads of the jar. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used. The amount of marmalade may vary by 1 to 2 jars. Wipe the rims and threads of the jars with a moist paper towel and top each with a lid.

Place a ring on each jar and tighten.

Return the jars to the pot with boiling water, being certain that they don't touch the bottom of the pot or each other. (If you don't have a jar rack, try a round cake rack, or metal mesh basket. Even a folded kitchen towel on the pot bottom will do in a pinch.) Add additional water if necessary to cover the jars by at least an inch. Boil for 10 minutes. Using canning tongs, carefully remove the jars from the water, place in a cool dry place and allow to sit at room temperature for at least 24 hours before opening. Once open, store in the refrigerator. Unopened marmalade will last for up to 6 months.

### There is a leak in the caraffe(or jar). It is at

Common issue with all of these carafe's. Once the jar starts to leak the bearings are shot and it is time to replace the jar. The bearings are non-replacable. Bad design in my opinion. I was able to get my last jar (I have been through 3 before the 5 year warranty went out) to last by hand washing and not putting it in the dishwasher, but after 4 years of use on this jar it failed too.
