Mr. Woods,
The SEAOC forum is intended for discussion and interchange of ideas, not for
completing student's homework assignments for them.  Electronic media and
mail can be a great aid for distribution of an item to a mass audience, such
as what your professor has done, but you appear to be abusing that same
venue to cheat yourself out of an education of a profession that
tremendously impacts every person's life safety and property.  Besides, to
answer these homework questions, all you really need to do is open any basic
concrete design textbook and the answers are right there.
