    my professor told us to make a project that uses an IC NOR Gate. My plan is to make it useful for everyday life. except the common things like charger...or lighting a led. thanks.

    What about a half adder or an oscillator using NOR gates?

    I don't see any question in your post....

    An IC NOR gate is a basic building block of digital circuits. Just as a bolt is a basic building block of mechanical systems. So your statement is very much akin to someone saying that their prof told them to make a project that uses a bolt and that they plan to make it useful for everyday life. How would you respond to such a post?

    In the Homework Help forum you are expected to show your work/thoughts/progress so far so that we can offer guidance (but not do your homework for you).

    sorry for my post guys.. i do have an idea on how does the NOR gate works but i was just tryin to gather some ideas on how would i able to assemble a useful project. i am planning to make a 4 pieces of turbine (my 1st idea) then once the 4 engines shuts down then as the NOR Gate response from the OFF turbines, the warning LED or something that i am working on it...is going to light. something like that guys.

    Ask yourself:
    Should each engine provide a logic high or logic low output when it is running?
    Should the gate output be high or low to light the LED?
