    Student Question

    My instructor at school asked us to find out what this component was. All he said was that it had to do with heating so I was hoping somebody would be able to tell me what it is

    is it pliable?

    I'd go with _spud

    Or go back in time using the flux capacitor and
    Replace the aforementioned flux capacitor with a thermocouple?

    Nice! Now he will pass the test, unless he can't figure out what that is.

    Alright so flux capacitor, go back in time with doctor brown, get an old thermocouple, come back, pass test. Sounds about right to me
