1. It determines the base of the number system being used.
2. The binary numeral system, or base-2 number system represents numeric values
using two symbols, usually 0 and 1. More specifically, the usual base-2 system is

1. An oscillator is an electronic circuit that produces a repetitive electronic signal,
often a sine wave or a square wave. The cycle is the interval during which the
output of the oscillator changes and then comes back to where i

1. A network.
2. A panel that had 4 switches on it and a light bulb. The switches were the input
device while the light bulb was the output device. The chapter was about gates
which are also input/output devices.

CS 200 Week 10
1. A relay can fail because of dirt or debris between the contacts. An advantage of
the vacuum tube was that it could switch in a microsecond.

1. A compiler converts your statements from a high-level language to machine code.
It breaks the high-level language source code down into short words, symbols and
numbers that is useful for the machine code.
2. A conditional sta

1. A bit is a basic unit of information storage and communication; it is the maximum
amount of information that can be stored by a device or other physical system that
can normally exist in only two distinct states. These states ar

1. It fails to add a possible carry bit from a previous addition.
2. If you use 2 half adders then there carry outs will never both equal 1.
3. A ripple carry adder allows each carry bit to "ripple" to the next full adder. Lookahe

1. Ohm's law states that the current through a conductor between two points is
directly proportional to the potential difference or voltage across the two points,
and inversely proportional to the resistance between them.
