##### Reference no: EM13296733

An engineer student is driving is driving on a level roadway and sees a construction sign 500 ft ahead in the middle of the roadway. The student strikes the sign at a speed of 25 mi/h. if the student was travelling at 65 mi/h when the sign was first spotted, what was the student's associated perception reaction time?

#### Tensile modulus of elasticity

Calculate the tensile modulus of elasticity for a 10 laminated composite consisting of 62 percent by volume of unidirectional carbon fibers and an epoxy matrix under isostress conditions.

#### Temporary change on the highway

Determine the minimum distance from the diversion that a road sign should be located informing drivers of the temporary change on the highway. The letter height on the road sign is 5 inches.

#### Factor of safety with respect to tensile failure

The maximum gage pressure is known to be 8MPa in a spherical steel pressure vessel having a 250mm diameter and a 6mm wall thickness. Knowing that the ultimate stress in the steel used is (sigma u)= 400MPa, determine the factor of safety with respe..

#### How much does the aggregate in the wheelbarrow weight
