This would depend on several variable such as: Welding process being used (SMAW, GMAW, etc). Specific type and grade of the Stainless Steel. The required tensile strength, ductility, and corrosion resistance. If you are welding pressure piping, the applicable ASME codes have a table in section IX. AWS D1.6 addresses structural applications. There are three basic types of Stainless Steels. Austenitic, Martensitic, and ferritic. Each has characteristics that differ from each other in the post welded condition. For a good selection of electrodes and their applications, your local welding supplier should have free reference books by various suppliers that will help. These are the same books we us to assist us in developing welding procedures to various codes and standards.

What is the genotype for Ss Ss ss ss?

You cannot do a cross to determine the genotypes of individuals because there is only one gene here. Genotype consists of the entire genetic makeup of the individual, which cannot be determined by a single gene. Only the alleles S or s is used to express this particular gene. If you're looking for a monohybrid cross between Ss and Ss, while separately wanting a result between ss and ss, then the answers are as follows: Ss x Ss 25% SS 50% Ss 25% ss ss x ss = 100% ss

NO! It is not their money in the first place and they should keep their hands off of our money. Government passed the SS in 1939 to help Seniors'. Government should also not use SS money except for Seniors and the Disabled. People who make over $100,000.00 should pay a higher SS tax then lower and middle class people.
