It is better to turn it off, the start up current in a light bulb will never exceed the power consumption over a five minute period. A motor shouldn't even be left on for that same reason. (Yes there is a start up current in a light bulb, it's just extremely small.) Your bulb will last longer if you leave it ON. Its the on/off cycle that kills bulbs. Electricity wise; you may save a few pennies a month by shutting it off. True, bulbs do loose life if constantley turned on and off, but you would have to turn it on and off hundreds of times for this to be an issue. A more serious issue would be where the bulb is located,for example a light bulb next to a door will not last as long as a light bulb in the middle of the room, simply because of the shock from the door closing. It is still best to turn the light off, esspecially if its a long life bulb.
Since microwaves are invisible light (like everything on the electromagnetic spectrum: UV X-rays, infra-red, and so on), it travels at the speed of light. Then, if you send a microwave to the sun, it would be there 8 minutes later, and would take another 8 minutes to come back to earth. So the answers is 16 minutes.
Electricity is the type of energy that is used when you turn on a light bulb. When you leave a room, you use more energy by leaving the light on than if you turn it off and back on when you return.
A week ago I would have said that no known object could exceed the speed of light. That MIGHT be incorrect. Come back in a year or so and we'll have a better answer.
Ooh. Long time. In 35 years, V2 has only gotten about 15 light-minutes away. A back of the envelope calculation suggests that another 1.2 million years ought to do it. Edit :It's a lot more than 15 light minutes away. Jupiter is further than that.
The light from our own sun takes roughly 8 minutes to travel the distance to us. That means when you look up at the sun (don't do that without special glasses) you are looking at the sun as it was 8 minutes earlier. Or you can say you are seeing the sun 8 minutes back in time. The stars which are far away galaxies, the light takes years to reach us. So the light we see at night now can be 100 years old. Or we are seeing that galaxy as it was 100s of years ago.
unhook the negative cable from battery for 10 minutes. Hook negative back up and turn ignition key to on position. Leave on for atleast 20 minutes or until security light goes off.
it comes back on after about ten minutes
You can reset a 2005 Honda CR-V SRS light by disconnecting the battery. Leave it disconnected for 10 minutes before hooking it back up.
Alot of the times you can disconect the positive terminal from the battery and leave it off for 30 minutes or so then put it back on
Only if Fairview is a better team. And if and when you leave, be prepared for your former teammates, coaches and others to view you in a new and not-so-favorable light. Remember, you can always leave, but you can never go back.
To reset the check engine light on a 2003 Infinity I 35, disconnect the battery cables. Leave the cable off for 10 minutes before hooking them back up.
disconnect the battery and leave it off for about 5 minutes. come back to it and put the battery back on. leave the car on for a about 2 minutes if it doesnt come back on your good to go. if it continues to flash or stays on permanantley take it toa mechanic so he can read your computer for any codes, unless you have the computer your self. once you have the code it gives you take the car home and fix what ever it is you need to fix according to the code given to you. if you want to turn it off so you can sell it quicker or for a better price just take the cluster out and disconnect the check engine light. then sell. good luck
I have a 2003 that gave me the same problem. Check the manual. In my case I had to turn the ignition to on and leave it for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes you turn it to off position and then you can turn it back on and start.
Take the battery out then leave it for five minutes then put it back in.
Well, some things in the engine can cause a premature light to come on when it is not suppose to. Heres how you can turn that light off... and if it comes back on then you know you need to have your engine checked. Take off the positive wire on your cars battery, leave it off for 1 minute. Reattach, and start your car. Leave your car running for 3-5 minutes. If your light remains off, then you had a false light. If it comes on, get it looked at!
Disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes. If there's no fault, the light will not come back on when you reconnect.
Shut it down and leave it alone for about 5 minutes then turn it back on. It should work. :)
