thanks

now I know all about volts and things and i'm truly grateful and I suppose I thought General Science covered elementary physics so don't make a special session on my behalf or I'll be afraid to ever post again

You just posted the same question twice. People answered you the first time, I was drawing your attention to your previous post.

Best
