## Step 3: Cutting PVC to Specific Length

Formulas 1. Measure length of T fitting and female Depth. add those numbers up and youll get sum that is equal to what will be the length of cut (2.) Find length from the outside edge to edge of the entire frames base for Cut (3.)is = 1/2[(L.)-(2Xa+2Xb-(2.))] Cut (4.)= W-2X Hypotanus squared= (1/2L.)squared + (1/2L)squared. Or find square root of (1/2L.)squared + (1/2L)squared. Once the hypotenuse is acquired you can now move on to.. Cut (5.)= H-(xa+xb)+ 2x 2x represents the female adapter depth times two. Cut (6.)= W-(2xc+xb) Congratulations if you used your memory from basic algebra and geometry with the drawings you should have come up with answers for measuring labeling and cutting,That is great just Great!!
The idea is good, and the project is well managed. But the axis must not to be vertical, it must be parallel to the earth axis. This is called equatorial mounting. To get it, you must lean the axis an angle equal to the site's latitude: horizontal at the equator, vertical at the poles. <br> <br>Theoretically, you also must vary it during the year some degrees as sun travels north-south and vice versa, but this correction is minor and could be ignored.
<p>you are absolutely right. interesting.</p>
<p>the module would have to be leveled accordingly</p>
Very nice Drawings
<p>its also a universal design, can be applicable to a wider range of uses. other than mounting solar panels Fresnel lenses or parabolic mirrors.</p>
