a fun, motivating, ridiculously-simple part of your *daily routine*.

**Every morning at 7AM (EST) we jumpstart your day with a daily Engineering Question,**

similar to concepts found on the *Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE) & Professional Engineering Exam (PE).*

A compact car and a large truck collide head on and stick together. Which undergoes the larger momentum change?

Mwahaha! You've concocted a new type of liquid that you're now measuring the properties of. Pouring it into a flask & putting it on a scale, you measure that 52 mL of the stuff weighs 0.062 g.

You've designed the liquid so it doesn't mix with water, and from the data above you need to know the following:

- What's the density of the fluid?
- What's its specific volume?
- What's its specific weight?
- And lastly, will the liquid float or sink in water?

(What's the difference between them all? Go to the answer to find out!)

While playing around in the casino, some weird guy walks up to you. In a deep voice, he says, "Let's Make a Deal!" Immediately, the entire background shifts like a movie set and you find yourself in a game show. Your mysterious "game host" shows you 3 doors (A, B & C) and asks you to choose. Behind one is a car, and behind the other two are goats.

You choose door A. He then opens door C, revealing a goat behind it. (Note: The Host always opens a goat door). He then gives you the option to stick with your original door A, or switch to door B.

Which choice will give you the best odds of winning the car?

Match the *heat tra*** nsfer rate (Q) equations** to the appropriate type of heat transfer.

A block of mass m is attached to a spring with spring constant k is free to slide along a horizontal frictionless surface. At t = 0 the block-spring system is stretched an amount x_{0} > 0 from the equilibrium position and is released from rest. What is the x -component of the velocity of the block when it first comes back to the equilibrium?

Daily bite-sized STEM/engineering challenges & questions to improve your critical thinking, logical thinking, analytical & problem-solving skills.

We help STEM professionals, especially engineers, continue to improve and learn, so that you can reach your full potential.

Whether you're a professional engineer or STEM professional who wants to keep sharp, ace the FE/EIT/PE exam, or just land that job interview, we can help you get there...one step at a time.
