    I already have the answers, and these are somewhat hands-on questions, so I figured I would share the joy! :D

    1. What is the difference between piping and tubing? Use copper or stainless as a basis for material.

    2. Is 316 SS soft or hard?

    3. Why is stainless steel so good against cavitation?


    I'll mail a hand-written letter to the first person to get all three right, contest ends 9:30 Pacific time tonight!

    1. Piping is measured by interior diameter, and is usually held to looser molecular tolerances. Tubing is measured by OD and generally higher strength steel.

    2. 316 SS is soft.

    3. Because it doesn't corrode easily.


    At least that's what my welding textbook says.

    I don't know if it's soft or hard, but I know its blindingly expensive. The 15,000psi pressure manifolds we use on nitrogen pumpers are 316SS and better than $10,000.

    As it was explained in class today, it's good against cavitation because it's soft, and somewhat flexible. Close enough, Zen! What's your address?
