  1. In physics class we were given an extra credit assignment to pick a electronic device in our home and calculate how much power and energy it uses and how much it costs on average over a month. We can use our knowledge of physics to solve this question of course! During my research, I found this article and found it helpful and interesting. Just in time for Halloween too!
    I will update you all on what I chose and my calculations of energy and costs.
    Happy Halloween!!

    1. @Kathryn: Glad to know the article helped you survive Halloween … and of course, your research!
