Guide to Aerodynamics
Rudder -Yaw Problem Set
- Unifying Concepts
- Models and
- Change and
- Physical Science:
Motion and forces.
- Science and
about science and technology.
- Abilities of
- Research Tools
- Use content-specific tools, software and simulations (e.g., environmental
probes, graphing calculators, exploratory environments, Web tools) to
support learning and research.
and Decision-Making Tools - Routinely and efficiently use on-line
information resources to meet needs for collaboration, research, publications,
communications, and productivity.
- After reading the
Rudder - Yaw page from the NASA Web-based textbook, you will demonstrate
an understanding of a rudder's function by answering questions in which
you will apply this information.
Beginner's Guide to
Aerodynamics is a "textbook" of information prepared at NASA Glenn Research
Center to help you better understand how airplanes work. Click Beginner's
Guide Index to access the list of slides. Open the slide called Rudder
- Yaw (with text). Study the labeled diagram and read the explanation
of rudder - yaw. Then using the information shown at Rudder
-Yaw Problems, complete the exercise.
You, or your
partner(s), will be evaluated on the accuracy or feasibility of your answers.
demonstrate the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web
to apply what you have learned about the rudder's function.
