If you did a test on the 14-2 50 ft run hooked to a 30A generator was pulling 21.6A at the end and let it run for 6 hrs why didnt it burn up?

Its a progressive degradation, similar to that of a light bulb.

Also, your test was probably in free air. The ratings on the wire are for it to be safe while in a wall packed with insulation. Any self-heating of the wire is going to stay by the wire there.

221 miles. This is the fastest route:Out of the airport, follow signs to I-240. Once you are at I-240, you want to take I-240 EAST to NASHVILLE.Take I-240 EAST to I-40 EAST to NASHVILLE at EXIT 12C.Take I-40 EAST to the INT'L AIRPORT at EXIT 216A. To bypass downtown Nashville, take I-440 (EXIT 206 off I-40).Follow signs to the terminal.

It is not clear whether the question is 3a + 4a + 5a + 6a^3 which would be 12a + 6a^3 or 3a + 4a + 5a + (6a)^3 = 12a + 216a^3 or (3a + 4a + 5a + 6a)^3 = 5832*a^3 But none of these really require summation notation!

This sequence is puzzling, particularly because the steps initially increase in magnitude; and yet the sequence then takes three steps just to fall from 30 to 24, a surprise which runs counter to our intuitions. Alternative reasons for this odd behaviour could be: * The sequence isn't a straightforward function, but rather involves some recursive relationship between terms. * The series is an elementary function, but it isn't using the counting numbers as its input. It might be based on the prime numbers, for instance. * The individual digits of each term are manipulated to determine the next. * The sequence is based upon a constant, like pi or e. * It involves geometric / trigonometric ideas. * The sequence is not using the decimal system. * The sequence isn't purely mathematical - it makes reference to some independent external data or sequence. I list all these exotic possibilities for one reason: there will be a great many different rules that could produce such a succession of terms. Some of them will be more elegant than others, so it's a good idea to keep an open mind. But here is the more mundane hypothesis that I will work with: * The sequence is confusing because it is produced by a function that is neither linear or quadratic but of a higher degree. If you sketch a graph of the sequence*, it is absolutely clear that it cannot possibly be a quadratic function, because it is neither concave nor convex, but first one and then the other. What this means in mathematical terms is that the rate of change of gradient (the second differential) undergoes a sign change somewhere. For this to happen, d2y/dx2 must be variable, i.e. it is a function of degree 1 or greater. It follows that dy/dx must be at least degree 2, and the actual function must have at least degree 3. In other words, the function could be a cubic of form ax3 + bx2 + cx + d Normally cubic sequences can be identified at once because the third difference (the difference of the difference of the difference) is constant. This method requires 5 consecutive terms however, and we were only given three. To pin down the function that we are dealing with, we would need to solve for the coefficients a, b, c and d: four unknowns to find. It happens that we have been given 4 terms in the sequence, therefore we can form four equations and solve for four unknowns. Actually, that is why this approach is rather disappointing and lacking in elegance. If you are given a number n terms of a sequence, then it is always possible to find a valid rule using a polynomial of degree n-1. For instance, if you gave me the first twenty terms of the Fibonacci series, I could find a rule that worked using powers of x up to x19, but it wouldn't be the best answer. Still, I can't see a better way forward, so let's proceed with our cubic function. We have four simultaneous equations: [13]a + [12]b + [1]c + d = 45 a + b + c + d = 45[23]a + [22]b + [2]c + d = 39 8a + 4b + 2c + d = 39 [33]a + [32]b + [3]c + d = 39 27a + 9b + 3c + d = 30 [63]a + [62]b + [6]c + d = 24 216a + 36b + 6c + d = 24 The way to solve them is to rearrange an equation to get one variable in terms of all the others, and then to substitute for it in the remaining equations. Repeating this tedious process will eventually eliminate all but one variable: the solution for this one variable can then be used to find the value of the others. To cut a long story short, the solution is: a = 13/20 b = -108/20 c = 113/20 d = 882/20 We can write a function giving y in terms of x that applies to the sequence: y = [13x3 - 108x2 + 113x + 882] / 20 As predicted, it is far from pretty, and I suspect there was some simpler rule that you were meant to find. Still, this one is perfectly valid. It gives the missing terms as 21.9 andf 18.6, in that order. *Plotting the given values against their positions in the sequence, y against x.

This is a very worthwhile question and the answer is relatively straightforward, although some Christians would describe it differently. To use a simple analogy, if you have a rich Uncle who has left you a vast inheritance, deposited in a bank, your act of going to the bank and collecting it, has enabled you to get access to it, but it has not earned you the inheritance which was simply given to you. The act of collecting it from the bank is simply your means of receiving what is yours, else if you leave it there, it does you no good and remains in the account in which it was deposited.In a similar manner, the blood of Jesus Christ, the lamb slain for the sins of the whole world, will do you no good unless you receive it. The act of receiving it is the means of it becoming yours and does not itself constitute a saving work, as this has already been done, and enough 'light' has been given to every person by the 'light which lights every man' (John 1:9) to enable them to believe. This is a necessity otherwise we would all be robots, being forced to believe against our will, which would amount to nothing. Or, if there was no light, we would remain in 'darkness' and could not justly be held accountable for unbelief.This concept, although seemingly simple to understand intellectually, may be a difficult thing to put into practice as the 18 inches (metaphorically speaking) from the head to the heart can be an infinite distance for some.

ProtestantismFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaProtestantism encompasses the forms of Christian faith and practice that originated with the doctrines of the Reformation. The word Protestant is derived from the Latin protestatiomeaning declaration which refers to the letter of protestation by Lutheran princes against the decision of the Diet of Speyer in 1529, which reaffirmed the edict of the Diet of Worms against the Reformation.[1] Since that time, the term Protestantism has been used in many different senses, often as a general term to refer to "Western Christianity that is not subject to papal authority."[1] The doctrines of the Reformation can be summarized as a) the rejection of papal authority, b) rejection of some fundamental Roman Catholic doctrines, c) the priesthood of all believers, d) the primacy of the Bible as the only source of revealed truth, and e) the belief in justification by faith alone.Martin Luther, German leader of the Protestant Revolution, founder of Lutheranism, Protestant theologian, was behind much of Protestant Theology."God does not work salvation for fictitious sinners. Be a sinner and sin vigorously.... Do not for a moment imagine that this life is the abiding place of justice; sin must be committed.""Sin cannot tear you away from him [Christ], even though you commit adultery a hundred times a day and commit as many murders."Excerpted from;
