How Airplanes Work

Human flight has become a tired fact of modern life. At any given moment, roughly 5,000 airplanes crisscross the skies above the United States alone, amounting to an estimated 64 million commercial and private takeoffs every year [source:NATCA]. Consider the rest of the world’s flight activity, and the grand total is incalculable. It is easy… View Article

UN Legitimacy and the Use of Force

The track record of the United Nations in maintaining international peace and security is mixed. From the Korean conflict in the 1950’s through the Iraq war today, the UN has been unable to overcome the global imperatives and prerogatives of the major world powers, principally the United States. These prerogatives are deeply rooted in the… View Article

Fluid Mechanics

2.15 A team is designing a helium-filled balloon that will fly to an altitude of 24,000 m. As the balloon ascends, the upward force (buoyant force) will need to exceed the total weight. Thus, weight is critical. Estimate the weight (in newtons) of the helium inside the balloon. The balloon is inflated at a site… View Article

Biomechanics of Sprinting

When adrenalin is pumping and someone is gunning for the finish line there is no thought on controlling their legs. Their legs just go. Most people don’t think twice about what all goes into the process of making the lower limbs move or how precise each muscle contraction must be to stay up on a… View Article

The Scrambler

For our project we made a wooden car that would carry our egg at least 5 meters. Our car was purple, pink and contained glitter. Miranda painted the car so the top was purple with silver glitter and the sides were pink. We also put “wings” on the side which were light purple and gave… View Article

Biomechanics of Surfing

Stress Strain Relationship

The unique relationship between stress (intensity of force) and strain (measurement of deformation) is evident. The external forces that act on the body impose loads that affect the internal structures of the body. In biomechanics, the understanding of mechanical properties internal forces is important for preventing injury and evaluating the causes of injury. It starts… View Article

Direct Shear Box Test

Introduction Shear strength is the property that enables a material to remain in equilibrium when its surface is not level. (Smith, 2006) The direct shear test is used to determine the shear strength of soils on a predetermined failure surface. This test is used to measure the shearing resistance, undrained shear strength, and dilative and… View Article

Projectile Motion

I. Introduction In this lab the main focus was projectile motion. A projectile is an object flying through the air that is only under the force of gravity (neglecting air resistance). A projectile moves both horizontally and vertically, which creates a parabolic flight path. In vertical projectile motion there is a constant velocity since there… View Article

Torque: Second Condition of Equilibrium

A torque is an influence, which tends to change the rotational motion of an object. One way to quantify a torque is force applied times the lever arm. In this experiment we consider the systems in equilibrium and its applications and how the forces acting on the system affect torque. To serve as a guide… View Article

Vacations: Psychology and Family

Picture yourself sitting on the beach. It’s a warm sunny day and the sun is beating down on you, warming every inch of your body. You have forgotten every itsy bitsy, as well as mega-problem back at home, your mind has been cleared blank from stress, and all you can think about is how amazing… View Article

Newtons Laws Relating to Car Safety Devices

Ever since cars were invented in the early 20th century, there have been road fatalities. Advances in car safety technology have seen a diminishing exponential curve in casualties suffered on the road. The first invention was the seatbelt, by George Cayley in the late 1900s. The next major advance was with the airbag, by John… View Article

Simple harmonic motion is the motion of a mass on a spring when it is subject to the linear elastic restoring force given by Hooke’s Law. In this lab, we will observe simple harmonic motion by studying masses on springs. In the first part of this lab, you will determine the period, T, of the… View Article

Center of gravity

The point in a body or system of bodies at which the whole mass may be considered as concentrated. When an object’s weight is distributed uniformly, the center of gravity lies at its geometrical center. For irregular shaped objects, the center of gravity is near to the concentration of its mass. Equation: Where: X= center… View Article

Acceleration due to gravity

The acceleration due to gravity, g, was determined by dropping a metal bearing and measuring the free-fall time with a pendulum of known period. The measured value is 9.706 m/s2 with a standard deviation of 0.0317, which does not fall within the range of known terrestrial values. Centrifugal forces and altitude variations cannot account for… View Article
