15 - Lincoln, Leadership, and Race: Emancipation as Policy
Professor Blight follows Robert E. Lee's army north into Maryland during the summer of 1862, an invasion that culminated in the Battle of Antietam, fought in September of 1862. In the wake of Antietam, Abraham Lincoln issued his preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, a document that changed the meaning of the war forever. Professor Blight suggests some of the ways in which Americans have attempted to come to grips with the enigmatic Lincoln, and argues that, in the end, it may be Lincoln's capac

Balancing : balancing of shafts : presentation transcript
This is a presentation about the balancing of shafts and supports the Edexcel HN unit – Design for Manufacture (NQF L4). The requirement to provide balance for rotating systems is a vital component in ensuring long, reliable service. This document describes a graphical method that can be used to determine the out of balance forces of such a system and the correct size and position of the balance weight required to do this. A worked example of the method is shown. This open educational resou
