Knowledge is Power; Learn Now about Electrical Solutions
February 28, 2012

Times have changed-they always have. Electrical Contractors of today are involved in much more than pulling conductors through conduit and terminating connections. In fact, you would be suprised to find out everything contractors are doing for their customers today.

NECA contractors are heavily involved in Design-Build projects. As the name implies, the Design-Build project delivery approach requires contractors who posess the full expertise needed to deliver a system which will fully meet a customers needs.

But today's systems are much more complex. NECA members have the knowledge and skills to make sure they are safe and that comply with the all applicable codes.

Square roots of integers that are not perfect squares are always irrational numbers: numbers not expressible as a ratio of two integers. For example, cannot be written exactly as m/n, where n and m are integers. Nonetheless, it is exactly the length of the diagonal of a square with side length 1. This has been known since ancient times, with the discovery that is irrational attributed to Hippasus, a disciple of Pythagoras.

The term whose root is being considered is known as the radicand. For example, in the expression , ab + 2 is the radicand. The radicand is the number or expression underneath the radical sign.
