You know why you were given this assignment? In no particular order, to teach you:
1. how to teach yourself. 2. how to assimilate ideas all on the same topic into a few coherent paragraphs. 3. some science, so you can grow up and get a big bucks paying technical job, which will allow you to play more football, field hockey, or chess, go to the opera, or spend more time flirting with the opposite sex (or with whomever you kids--oops, excuse me, I meant "clueless teens"--flirt these days). 4. how to save some serious money when a dealership tries to rip you off and make you pay when in fact your bazillion horsepower red Ford Mustang cat converter is covered by the //federal warranty// on emissions devices. Said serious money will assist you in pursuing the aforementioned leisurely activities. (Use protection!)
Cripes while I was writing this, I almost nailed how to get #1 cylinder at TDC compression, via a groups.googl search. I'm that good...

Exactly! This is an exercise, so when you have to do it "for real" you *will* know what you are doing.

You're pretty lazy, aren't you?
At the risk of being scolded by Elle, I went to: www.google.com and entered these search terms exactly as you see them here: "catalytic converter" honeycomb function
And got this result: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22catalytic+converter%22+honeycomb+function&btnG=Google+Search
If you wish to know more, you can refine my start by using different terms.
You're welcome.

: hello. im in grade 10 and my science class is doing a study on catalytic : converters... I have nothing on the subject so far because most websites on : the internet give prices and how much a new catalytic converter would cost... : but that is not what Im looking for... I would highly appreciate it if any : one knew any thing on around what time should you replace a catalytic : converter in a car... should you replace it according to the warrenty... or : keep the original cat. till it dies? also id b extremely greatful if any one : knows any thing about how a catalytic converter actually works... I've read : different things of how it works... but nothing ive read has been consistent : in the information... so if any of you know how a cat. works then post it and : let me know... : : thanks... clueless teen....
Weird... When my kids were in grade 10, they knew EVERYTHING. Come to think of it, when I was in grade 10, I knew everything.
Oh, and I did my own homework, too.

Oops. I bet you didn't really mean to make a claim like that, now did you? Especially given that you don't spell, punctuate or elucidate above the level of the average 12 year old. 92 is a lot more congruent with what you've exhibited in this thread than 192.

okay... I'm not 12 years old... I'm 15... I'm just a lazy typer when I don't feel like spending a lot of time on something... I only spell things properly when I'm going to be getting a grade for it at school. so I DO know how to type.... and I DO know how to spell... and I DO have an IQ of 192... you can ask every board official on my city's Board of Education. I've been getting tested for over 5 years to see if I am infact a teen genius. I've comprehended physics and calculus, and since then I've been tutoring many grade 12 students who attend my Highschool in both those subjects... so don't tell me that it was a mistake to make a claim that... because I did!

I'm 14. I just look a lot older than my age. I don't even get carded when buying liquor, which is just sooo cool. I can buy cigarettes for all my friends, too.

So do I! What a coincidence!

We already know I am. Nothing to prove there.

I just made the smae mistake, which proves our similar IQs.

Oh, c'mon Dave. On the Internet, we've ALL got IQs of 192. You, me, our semi-literate friend here, everybody. Isn't it cool to be so smart?

the only real teenie thing about this is trying to get somebody else to do there assignment for them
clues, 1. **no** teenie refers to self as clueless 2. teenie venacular is off by 15 years 3. post is too long (think IM) 4. i read howitworks.com
if one ***actually reads*** first paragraph and still whines about not knowing what convertor does whine whine and blather on about not saying what it does or being vague and in consistent
deserves a failing grade on the report
spend some time in science / math / physics groups you'll know

Come on fellers give the 192 IQ a go. All mechanics have an IQ of er I'd better not say Thats why we hang out here eh? Were all less experienced than we want to be.

Ive got an IQ of er,, dam Ive fergot Its terrible when Alzheimers sets in...IQ dont mean nuthin den.
A catalytic converter works by getting so hot it burns any pollution left after the combustion process. Its usualy get polluted by using the wrong fuel, eg leaded petrol. This is when it stops working properly. It burns itself out in time, but if treated properly will last longer than most exhaust systems due to pollution standards making the manufacture of these devices very long life unit.
