In this course we will cover the principles of basic math as it applies to the NEC code rules and regulations.
For example, the NEC states that for a "CONTINEOUS LOAD" you must select the wire size to handle 125% of the computed load. Again the NEC States that the overcurrent protection must also be sized to handle 125% of the computed load. So where do you begin to meet these requirements.
For wire size we begin by going to section 310.16, which is the code section on wire ampacity -- but what do we make of the many columes and how do we apply them to get the correct answer - we cover HOW TO as related to the code on most math problems.
For the overcurrent protection its much easier, just simpley knowing the definition for a "CONTINEOUS LOAD" - come find out how to apply the code to this problem.
We will cover OHMS law and how to use the POWER WHEEL to solve basic electrical problems. Its a lot simpler than you might think. We keep it simple and stay within basic math not ALGEBRA.
