Inductance is as feasible as a topic as capacitance... But I think having both on the test means RLC circuits.
...I really loved this event back in 2013 and it helped me towards becoming an EE
except it's not...
Please refer to rule 3.d.

Although I do agree that there is no real reason (that I can think of) to allow for capacitance to be tested and not inductance.

Agreed... they could've easily allowed inductance but not RLC circuits (especially since they allowed capacitance but not RC circuits in B division). Also, they added magnetic poles, magnetic fields, and electromagnets to the rules, so there's really not much of a reason not to allow inductance.

If your event supervisor is known to be mean, learn it.

In the official guidebook, it says that we have to know how to use a breadboard. I want to know if this is a solderless breadboard. Also, does a graphing calculator count as a stand-alone calculator?

I assume it means a solderless breadboard. A graphing calculator counts as a stand-alone calcaulator.

I would agree with UTF. They don't want students soldering.

We have a new official 'calculator policy' everyone should review: https://www.soinc.org/sites/default/fil ... e_2019.pdf

I'm fairly new to binder events. How thick are the binders for these types of events usually?
Ok this is epic 8-)
Events 2018: Battery Buggy (3rd at Nats), Rollercoaster (18th at Nats), Ping Pong (1st at states)
Events 2019: Codebusters, Ping Pong Parachute, Thermodynamics

I like Overwatch, Marvel, and food

Varies from 1-1.5 inches to something like this.
