The circuit is grounded within the recepticle box. There is no need to ground the actual switch. == ==

This is normally seen in older switch boxes with older devices. new devices are required to have a separate ground just for the device. Grounding a device through a receptacle box no longer meets code. The new code state that both the box and device must be separately grounded. I would recommend replacing the switch with a new one that has a grounding screw. The reasoning for this is twofold. First, grounding through a box to a device is notoriously unreliable and secondly when the device is pulled out of the box by a service person the device loses its ground thus causing a safety issue.

By 2 way switch I assume you mean a single pole switch. If so yes this can be done.

This will probably make more sense if you draw it out. A light has two wires running to it. The switch breaks one of the lines. Draw two lines on a sheet of paper about 2 inches long. Draw a small circle in the middle to represent a light. Extend one of the lines to the light. To the side extend the other line to a box that represents the first switch. From that switch draw two lines to the second switch. Draw one line from the second switch back to the light. That completes the circuit. Power comes into the first switch on the single line and then through one of the two lines between the two switches and out the final single line to the light. It can use either of the two center lines depending on which way the switches are flipped. This makes sense to me, but it may be Greek to you. If you follow the drawing I think it should make sense.

This is a mostly a matter of personal opinion but I find the 2 way speakers to be less "harsh" with less screeching treble. Brand name can make a big difference as well, I personally prefer JVC 2way speakers as they have excellent vocal reproduction and a very reasonable price.

A two way radio allows two persons to communicate with each other while separated by some sort of distance. A wireless frequency is used for them to communicate and they must be on the same channel.

Honda F1 car set a land speed record 2way average at Bonneville at 397km/h or aprox. 247mph. It did top out at 413km/h oneway.

Single mode it the method of transmission where device/mechanism can either send or receive in one direction. Radio & TV Broadcasts are examples of Single Mode.Half Duplex is the method where device/mechanism can either send or receive at a time only (capable of sending & receiving). 2way radios are examples of Half Duplex.

In a PS2-game I once played if you put in a card name as your user name, then somewhere 1/2way thru the game you could put in that cards serial-# as a cheat code and you'd be able to use the card in the game. It was sort of an old game, so this only worked with cards made before yugioh-GX came out. But you can still get god cards and all blue eyes.

The same food as everyone else who happened to live in one of the hundreds of different Colonies around the world. When part of a country was 'colonised', by some nation such as Britain, or Holland, or Spain etc they would have continued to eat the same food as they had always eaten before they were colonized. However, the nation that tried to steal and control a colony, often introduced new foods to them. That colony also introduced new food to the country that colonized them. It was a ' 2way street', but the coloniser had the upper hand to a large extent , and exploited the colony they were in.

At first one has to suppose that the concentrations of HA and HB are the same! 1)Eq.P. at pH=8: You need less OH- (titrant) to reach this, so the acid donated its last proton easier, so it was stronger. (Eq.P. at pH=7 means it isn't weak at all)1) It is more accurate to compare pH value's half-the-wayof titration, because pH1/2way is exactly equal to pKa value of the acid concerned AND it is independent of concentration: it is buffered!!!

Conjugate base B- is stronger, it has a higher pH at Eq.P.Your first (and also the original) question is answered as follows:At first one has to suppose that the concentrations of HA and HB are the same! 1)Eq.P. at pH=8: You need less OH- (titrant) to reach this, so the acid donated its last proton easier, so it was stronger.
