Quantitative
Testing
Answers
Along with the worksheet,
a report should be submitted (written or presented). Use information gathered
on the worksheet to help prepare the report.
Explain the information
that you gathered. State its relevance to the parameters you will be setting
in FoilSim.
Answers
will vary. Students will produce a report of their findings.
State the speed and
angle required for your computer generated wing model:
for .25N:
10 km/hr 5º
for .5 N: 14
km/hr 5º
for .75 N: 18
km/hr 5º
Record your observations
during the bicycle's movement.
Trial One
with 25 grams  distance traveled: 50m
time taken: 20s
Trial Two with 50
grams  distance traveled: 50m
time taken: 15s
Trial
Three with 75 grams  distance traveled: 50m
time taken:
12s
Calculate the speed
of each trial: Trail One: 2.5m/s (9 km/hr)
Trial Two: 3.3m/s (12 km/hr)
Trial Three: 4.2m/s (15 km/hr)
In your report, graph
the theoretical and actual speeds of your wing model. Using the error
analysis methods we have discussed, calculate the error involved and
what could have caused this error.
Answers
will vary. Students should produce a bar graph comparing the theoretical
and actual speeds of their wing model for Trials One, Two, and Three.
