 Q2: A pnp transistor with its base connected to a voltage source, the V source is connected to a +10V source. The emitter of the transistor is connected to a resistance, and then to the same +10V source. The collector side is connected to a capacitor, which is not charged at t=0-. Given the graph of Vsource = 10 V stepping up at t = 0 to further, draw the graph of Vout. Vout is between the point of collector and capacitor. 2 Answers ANS: Vout should be constantly -10V until t=0, and will hit V=0 V linearly from V=-10 V after t=0. Hi, Can you explain why it linearly increases? Are you assuming that Collector is tied to -10V? The pnp transistor is completely cutoff for the given biasing. The only way the capacitor is going to charge is through leakage currents. It is very slow and takes a lot of time. Please advise me if my analysis is correct.

 How are M&M's made? 11 Answers I said that the chocolate was solid and then dipped into the candy shell They use hybrid dung beetles to roll the balls in candy coating! Going Green at M&M's with magic. that's why some of them talk. Show More Responses Reply back asking exactly how many M&Ms will you be expected to make each day. Say, "through teamwork!" Then turn to the nearest mirror, smile wildly and give an energetic thumbs-up! (It is best to assume it is a one-way mirror and that you are being watched). "Deliciously" One batch at a time. When a Mommy M and a Daddy M love each other very, very much.... Seriously, they make the chocolate first, cool it, separate them into their smaller spheres, then put into Panners where the sugar layers are added, dyed the different colors, then waxed (no kidding, very thin layer though). Then they go down a conveyor belt to get the M stamped on them. elves. i'm quite certain they are made by elves. how else would they talk, and refuse to get in the bowl. Two theories. 1.) They are coated with the shell and then while the shell is still liquid dropped from such a height that the shell cools on the way down therefore making the shell perfect with no seam or spot where it was set down. 2.) Put into molds, shell is pumped into molds then the candy is tumbled to remove the spot where the shell was injected, this will also make the candy shiney I have a feeling its probably number 2 but my mom posed this question to me when I was like 7 and I came up with the first answer, it always seemed much cooler Relocation

 1. Name a time when you had to handle a difficult co-worker. 2. What line of business are you interested in? 3. What do you think makes you successful? 4. Tell me about a time when you made a mistake. 5. Name a time when you dealt with a difficult customer. 3 Answers What were the reasons you had for declining the offer? I ended up being placed in my home state. They had tens of openings, and I was extremely disappointed that no one had listened each time I had said "anywhere but my home stage" throughout the process. What does their offer entail? (salary,benefits,etc)

 If I were a brick, where would I like to be placed in the wall? 2 Answers This is a psychological question and everyone's answer s different Depends where the wall is! My first impulse - a foundation, I'd be an odd shaped brick anyway, so a place of great leverage but not up front in your face influence.

 If we undertake a campaign to contact our 30 day overdue group of customers, what is our overall probability of success given the following probabilities: 50% chance of having their e-mail on file 20% chance of a customer paying their bill without us contacting them 30% chance of a customer reading the e-mail we send them 30% chance of a customer making a payment if they read the e-mail etc. 4 Answers Use a decision tree. this is likely an applied probability question: My answer is to apply total probability formula here. It's ~25%. .5 x .3 x .3 = .045 or 4.5% success rate from emailing. Add to that the unprompted payment rate (.2 or 20%) and get 24.5% Show More Responses ^That method won't work because it's possible that there are those on the email list that would respond without an email, so there would be some overlap, which means you can't just add the two together. Easiest way to approach it would be to draw some sort of Venn Diagram
