Texas instruments ti 89 or ti 84

    The ti89 titanium can be loaded with ee200 which is an excellent APP to do units and I personally know the designer is sharp as they come. I made the misstake of challenging him one time and he responds almost instantly to help you w/ about anything. If in a class wher your only allowed ti84 there an APP for that.

    Mainly ti89 titanium is simple to convert units. Such as 8_m>_in=314.960629921_in

    And working w/ units you can download ee200 which solves equations and keep it in the correct unit form. Plus, the designer is real sharp and good about helping you w/ any questions. Just don't do like I did and think he had a flaw w/ his programming just to find out your condition couldn't exist.

    Great question, because you do have to be real similar with the Ti 89 to keep it operating with the same units you are working with. If by chance you can't then the ee200 APPS will do it for you. Plus, you can get ME and EE APPS which display's in correct units too.

    Using engineering APPS is great because it's easy to stay with the units your working with. If you want to set the units in the unit custom in order to stay with the units your working with, will help. Text scripts work great because you can execute all the correct mode sittings before you display the answer.

    That is a good question. It is even hard for experts to get the ti89 to stay and display in the units that their working in. On some things you have to build your own custom units, and have almost everything taken out so that all that's left is the unit your work with. Before an answer is displayed notice the mode settings are going to be executed first, then comes variables and units. Then comes the answer in proper form, great during test time..



    Ti Text Scripts that you create. Plus, converts exactly as you would print it, with a _ let's you know that its a constant or a unit. The Ti 89 is actually real good about staying within the unit your working with. It is only until you deal with a Weber or you want to stay in the smaller units do you see a problem. Because like Weber wants to head to Tesla, and I want go to Maxwell. So, the problem is understandable and the programming is actually correct. If you have the correct mode settings and your can type it in as you would print it, then the Ti 89 well be a good calculator.

For a master's in engineering you would need one the HP 48g (not manufactured anymore) or the HP49g or HP50g.

On the HP48g you can perform calculations with the units attached, and the calculator will arrange the result by showing the appropriate unit.
Same thing with the HP49g's and the HP50g's.

There exist scientific calculators that perform simple unit conversions: in to cm, degree F to degree C and such simple things. However you won't go far with them during your engineering studies.

There are some fine TI calculators that will help you a lot in engineering: The TI89platinum, the TI92 and TI92Plus, the Voyage 200PLT.
With these beasts you can even do symbolic calculus (integration, differentiation) and true symbolic algebra, and exact arithmetics. AND there are a lot of specific programs written to handle specific engineering problems. Those can be downloaded from the Internet to your calculator.

Hope that helps.

Should I major in what I'm good at?


I don't know what it's like in a lot of colleges, but I wouldn't be surprised if you can apply to a college into some sort of "exploratory studies". In my college the "exploratory studies" program lasts around a year or two and it's geared to people who don't know what major they want and help them decide. Now I say a year or two because that's generally how long it takes people to decide. Also, not to stress you out, but understand that the major you are getting is what you plan on doing for at least 30-40 years, so if you absolutely hate sciences and math I would steer away from that. If you are good at foreign languages, there are hundreds of good paying jobs out there for translators, and international relations. Engineering and Computer Science may pay better (I don't know average salary pay for International Relations), but this is where you think to yourself how much your general happiness is worth. If Computer Science pays $100k a year and International Relations pays $90k but you'll be happier and the work will come naturally easier to you, I would suggest doing that job instead.

What's the difference between computer science and computer engineering?


I think Computer science and computer are two different things. The most important one is that one is an engineering degree, while the other is just a generic CS degree. It's easier getting a CS bachelor than a CS engineering bachelor's because you won't have to take the addition engineer's classes, which will set most back by a semester or two. To attain all detail knowledge about the same I think one can access http://mhelpdesk.com/field-service-management-software/ .

Converting from Japanese to English (Eclipse AVN6606HD)


It is possible to do this, although it is not easy. It requires reprogramming the HMI in the unit. I have done this on my AVN6606HD for the majority of the functions I use and it would probably apply to other units to convert from japanese to english.

Question in networking .


for number of hosts convert mask to binary, count number of 0's say 3 0's are there so now multiply 2 that times ex-- 2*2*2=8

substract 2 from this you will get number of host

ex:
mask= 255.255.255.0
binary=11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000

No of zeros=8
2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2=x
no of host= x-2
