This allows the driver to increase the down force on the rear wheels while turning to increase traction. Additionally the wing is used to increase drag during braking. The wing is stabilized in the lateral direction with a link arm utilizing spherical rod ends at each end. While cornering the link arm failed, causing a tire to blow out. Stress Analysis An important factor to determine is how much stress the stabilizing link needs to withstand.
Coefficient of Friction- Post Lab Abstract The purpose of the experiment was to determine to coefficient of friction on a block sliding across a horizontal plane, and on the same block sliding down an inclined plane. This was done by first testing block, and how much weight on a string was needed to move the block at a constant velocity using a pulley system. The block weighed 0.2385 kilograms, and needed a hanging mass of 0.05 kg to move at a constant velocity. This means the coefficient of friction is 0.37. The second block was tested on an inclined plane, and the angle was found at which the block would move at a constant velocity.
Identify the unknowns by its melting and boiling points. 2. Learn to set up a proper distillation apparatus. Theory: Intermolecular forces play a large part in identifying unknowns when conducting a distillation experiment. The stronger the bond, the higher boiling and melting points will be.
While funding can be used for other issues facing our nation rather than financing a space program, the United States should continue to fund space exploration because it drives the development of new technologies that can create both consumer and medical benefits, generates economic growth and opportunities, and leads to new advancements that can help solve problems on Earth. The benefits that the United States of American has gained by supporting a space program financially, has spanned many years since the nation decided to venture beyond the earth into the stars. In the United States, the agency that is responsible for the nation's space program and aerospace research is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration or commonly referred to as NASA. Established in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower and with the full support of Congress, its birth was directly, but not sole purposely, related to the pressure to further develop the country's national defense, but served to symbolize the entrance of the United States into the space age. When the Soviet Union had successfully orbited the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, in 1957 it help to establish a new urgency for a U.S. space program.
In one scene the team successfully follows the instructions on how to build a CO2 filter from the items available to them on the space craft. This example is key as to how teams can function effectively, since the initial construction of the filter was done by the ground control team and then communicated by radio to the spacecraft. Another scene which gives an example of similar problem solving skills was during an issue with the navigation equipment, in which the crew loses access to navigation tools. The team worked together to keep the moon centered in a small window to avoid losing their trajectory to Earth. A quick response to such a serious situation could only have been achieved by an experienced team.
The string was attached to a weight on a pulley system. At the end of the system was a motion sensor that recorded the position, velocity, and acceleration of the glider. The lab draws on the concepts of force and Newton’s Laws of Motion, specifically Newton’s Second Law which states: the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the object and inversely proportional to the object’s mass. The equation Net Force = Mass x Acceleration (Fnet = mass x acceleration) is derived from this definition. Air tracks were used to reduce friction; the small amount of friction left in the system will be considered negligible in the data.
Casting Process Analysis In this report I will discuss the importance of manufacturing components by use of casting in the aerospace industry. The reasons limiting the process in the industry, different methods available and why I believe it is better than other manufacturing processes. There are three main manufacturing processes used in the aerospace industry to produce metal components. They are forging, machining and casting. Metal forging is a process where a force is applied to forge a material to a certain shape and increase the materials directional strength.
Then the class is asked to evaluate these values and determine if the values make sense and if there are any abnormalities. Determine CL, D, CD, CDi, CDo, L/D in cruise at 4 conditions (power settings), Calculate the contributions of skin friction to CDo in each of the above conditions, Determine CLmax with and without flaps, Determine CLmaxL/D, CLminPR . Plot CDi, CDo, CD, CLmax on a graph as a function of CL What else can you determine with the takeoff distance provided? Assumptions: Assume steady level flight at the given power setting. Assume that Swet was twice the wing area and the area of the fuselage and tail was approximately a cylinder with a diameter of 10 ft and a length of 30 ft.
The wind factor was very important in the flight path of the boomerang and the time of flight. By throwing a boomerang with the presence of wind we add an additional force. This additional force helps the boomerang in having a better and stable turn before coming to in the direction of the thrower. Wind also helps in providing more lift this increases the flight time as (shown in graph 2). The 8 path could be observed when the wind velocity was low and the O path was observed when the wind velocity was high.
TITLE: Experiment 8 Disk Bowl Centrifuge OBJECTIVES: * To understand disc bowl centrifuge working principle * To demonstrate the separation of heavy phase liquid * To demonstrate the effect of product type as throughput * To calculate the separation efficiency INTRODUCTION: Centrifugal separator is a type of equipment that used to separate solids from liquid or liquid from liquid by using centrifugal force. In this experiment, we are going to investigate the liquid-liquid separation for oil and water liquid of different density by virtue of spinning at relatively high speeds. There are two major types of centrifuge which are tube bowl centrifuge and disc bowl centrifuge where both can be used for either liquid-liquid separation or solid-liquid separation of different density. For disc bowl centrifuge, the feed is admitted near the base and passes up though holes in the disc inverted cones separated at 5mm apart. Disc centrifuges usually range from 10 cm to 75 cm in diameter.
