DUPPLICATE THREAD ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Projects are for learning, not asking others to do the project!

Did you notice the CR4 homework policy?

  • Do your own homework. CR4 is not a homework cheat site. While some here might relish the opportunity to sharpen up old rusty skills by working the homework problem, consider the following and consider it well. If you cheat on your homework by using someone else's answers, you are only cheating yourself, because the purpose of any homework or other academic assignments is to help you learn - by practice, repetition, and self-discovery.

I don't see a question/problem stated here anyway!

If he won't read the policies here why should he look up the illumination data on the lights he's considering?

I think I'm suffering from a case of deja vu.

That's better than the OP.

He's a final year student and is totally in the dark!

'Final year' student, but that doesn't mean he or she has made it to the third year. Sad fact, but something like 15 % of Brit Engineering undergraduates find that their first year is the final one. Primary reason is a lack of basic grounding in mathematics. Possibly Universities could give them a crash course, but it's not really their job to teach the basics - our schools fail young people something terrible when it comes to anything numerical or scientific. I could have written that exact point several decades ago.

I think far too much credit and responsibility for education is placed on the schools and much too little is placed on the students today. I do fault the undergraduate programs for not screening out students not properly prepared to do the work. A desire for performing any form of engineering is mandatory for engineering. Desire is not the sole requirement for success in engineering.

I'm not clued up on how American schools work, but I hope it is not as bad as here.

One unfortunate time in my life I was teaching undergraduates. I'll not go into detail, but I was banging my head on a desk, None of the group had any capability that I'd have expected of a 16'ish kid. It's totally sad but true. On top of that, they has zero common sence for basic lab tests. I could rant for ages, but I just gave up and quit. It was painfull to experience. Maybe I should have stayed, but it was mind-numbing agony to explain step by step. I had not the patience, and that fault is probably mine.

I blame parents of today for making things too easy for their children. We do everything for them.

Then we blame the schools when they fail because teachers can't/won't take the time to coddle them like we have done all their lives.

That is very true - things don't work as we would like, it's most often our own fault. Wisdom is realizing ones own mistakes in early life, and having the balls to try and learn + tell younger people- they never listen, but that's a big part of learning. The biggest part of learning is falling over - painful, but we learn.

I think coddling is a symptom and not the core problem. I think we celebrate winning far too much. More to my point we do not teach any of the advantages of failures. We do not point out that every successful person worked through earlier failures to eventually become a success.

It is pretty bad

Not universal, but pretty wide spread

Why post twice?

Do your own homework too, you will get no help from me....
