Systems of Units. Some Important Conversion Factors
The most important systems of units are shown in the table below. The mks system is also known as the International System of Units (abbreviated SI ), and the abbreviations sec (instead of s), gm (instead of g), and nt (instead of N) are also used.

...ASSIGNMENT 2: ROBOTS
In this report I will write in detail about the uses and operations of industrial robots, flexible manufacturing systems, productivity loading and unloading systems and coordinated work schedules. I will show the benefits and disadvantages of the above and evaluate the consequences of such practices.
First of all robots have many applications such as: assembling products, handle dangerous material, spray finishes on, inspect parts/produce/livestock and cut/polish...

...1. The use of knowledge and understanding of mathematics in engineering context.
Mathematics is science of pattern that engineers seek out whether found in numbers, space, science, computers, imaginary abstractions, or elsewhere. Knowledge and use of basic mathematics have always been an inherent and integral part of engineering. In our previous semester, basic mathematics was applied in almost every...
...Chapter 2: THE NATURE OF MATHEMATICSMathematics relies on both logic and creativity, and it is pursued both for a variety of practical purposes and for its intrinsic interest. For some people, and not only professional mathematicians, the essence of mathematics lies in its beauty and its intellectual challenge. For others, including many scientists and engineers, the chief value of mathematics is how it applies to their own work....
