How much work is required to wind the entire chain on the pulley?

An 80ft length of steel chain weighing 20lb/ft is dangling from a pulley. How much work is required to wind the entire chain on the pulley? In this problem you are to EVALUATE the integral required to answer the question.

change in energy = integral 0 to 80 of 20xdx
the integral = 10x^2+constant
the constant = 0 since 0 work done at 0 feet

10x^2 = 64000-0=64000ft lbs

Does anybody else think Ricky Ponting is the second greatest test batsman?

Is Rick Ponting the greatest test batsman behind only Don Bradman. Pontings stats:
168 Test caps & 13,378 runs
375 ODI caps & 13,704 runs
71 international centuries
Highest Test score: 257 v India in 2003
Won three World Cups
Tests as captain: 77
Tests won as captain: 48
Not only are his stats impressive but he was one of toughest and most competitive cricketers in the game. He thrived under pressure and adversity and played with a beautiful combination of aggressive stroke play and solid defence. He was also a great captain.

I wouldn’t say 2nd. More bottom half of the top 10.

Do you have to distill homemade spirits?

I’m planning on making vodka via the potato method. Do you have to distill it after the fermentation process? Or is that just to give it a stronger proof. I don’t have a still and I don’t wanna buy the stuff to make one. Is it dangerous to skip the distillation process

If you are going to make vodka…then yes…you will have to distill. You are taking a risk if you dont know what you are doing. There are two types of alchohol that stream from making likker. Be sure to keep your temp at 174 and throw away your first few ounces of liquer…it will make you sick. Also be sure you have a complete cooling coil method in place so ya dont blow up the still. Not tryin to scare ya…just hate seeing someone get burnt up over some likker. To get the best likker you want to distill three times to about 180 proof. Then add quality water to cut it down to 100 proof…you will need a hydrometer to get it right on. Keep in mind if you are doing this in the usa …it is a federal offense and i do not suggest in any way anyone attempt to make likker. But good luck…..

Forge welding a knife from a timing chain – Part One

Taking a car timing chain, I cut it into pieces, tack welded the pieces into a billet, then heated and pressed with my home built 24 ton hydraulic press. Part two will show more of the resulting blades.
