I've been wondering... is there a site out there that can identify Japanese fonts? Or perhaps someone knows the name of the font used here?

"metric ton" - Not used at all by lay people or many businesses. You will see it used frequently in engineering, science, or international business. OTOH, you won't see "megaton" used much except as a slang expression outside of nuclear or rocket science.

And I've never seen it written as "M T"
Thank, Vexx

Basically in this published article i'm reading, there is this guy who (as i see) supposedly divided "3 M T" by "90 MT" and somehow got 0.3% (?!?!). Then happily declared that it 's similar to the figure of 0.5-2% from another guy

So was really frustrated here not knowing whether he carelessly forgot that 3 mil/90 mil = ~3%, or it's simply a case of 3 and 90,000,000 with unknown extra calculations behind it. Of course the first make more sense to me, but it's within my interest for it to be high so can't totally trust myself

I'm going to *guess* he was using "metric tons" as "M T" and "megaton" as "MT" ... but it still doesn't add up.

He meant the same unit, not different units. 3x/90x= 0.03333, or about 3%. X here can be any unit, be it MT, kg or m.

Can't say much about the rest.

If it means anything, for most of my time in Engineering we only used kilograms. A tonne would have been 10^3 kg. The SI symbol for tonne is t, not MT, lower case letter not upper-case. I'm not familiar with the standard abbreviations for barbaric "English Units" are, but according to wikipedia it's simply "ton".

I doubt MT is a proper way to write any unit.

Ugh, I'm sorry, I probably shouldn't do this, but I figured to just give it a try. It's a question for my college paper.

Suppose 3 sets of data: g0,g1,g2. They represent measurements from the same positions, but from different heights (with irregular interval, h1-h0 =/= h2-h1). How do I derive a single gradient value using all 3 points simultaneously? That is, I'm not allowed to compute the gradient between g0 & g1, then g0 & g2, then averaging the two.

I'd appreciate it if someone can point me to a paper on some methods or applications. I'm currently exploring finite difference, but have yet to see how to make it work.

One more easier question:

What is 1.E+01. Is it just 1*10^1?

3 Points does not necessarily mean you have a line, it's more likely a curve. You could derive the quadratic equation that describes those 3 points, and then differentiate to get the gradient, which will vary with g.

However, I'm assuming each of those sets only has a single point.

As a matter of interest what course is this for, and what year is the course for? That'll give me an idea of how complicated the solution needs to be. There are better (though more complex) methods to analyze data then what I wrote above, but they're advanced.

I'm happy to explain anything that you need more clarification for.

Also, I recently graduated from Mech Engineering, though after some months of idleness, I don't remember everything perfectly.

So I have this problem.

I don't know what's worse, the actual problem or the fact that I don't know exactly what this problem is.

In light of that, I'll just list some symptoms.

- 'some' images do not load
- Youtube videos 'sometimes' error out
- 'some' sites just don't want to load

Now, I'm pretty sure I'm connected to the net here.

That's pretty weird. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash? It also depends a lot on your web browser. Have you tried switching to a different one and seeing what happens?

the same happened to me but i fixed it by manually assign IP address.

This happened to me a long time ago, where I've had weeks where I couldn't visit certain sites and then it suddenly resolved itself.

Probably @DonQuigleone is right, is a Flash player problem, try to reinstall it..the problem will be solved..also it happened to me..

I've only seen MT used officially for nuclear yields (former DoD engineer here during Cold War) and it was the "2000 pound" kind of ton in mega-doses (million).

And yes, I heartily agree that barbaric 'English' units are an utter pain in the ass and its hard for me to take engineering seriously that clings to them. Furlongs per fortnight, tally ho!

What? D:

If you means metric system, then it was opposite here with all those inches, feet, pounds and the like. @_@ I thought it was non-scientific units until read a hydraulic engineering textbook with these kind of units conversion... Not really fond of that book as you all may guess

Update on the problem.

Somehow it just fixed itself overnight? Dammit Smart BRO.

It will be back...

Botched unit conversions have been responsible for more then a few accidents.
