Along with this worksheet, a report should be submitted (written or presented). Use information gathered on this worksheet to help.
Explain the information that you gathered. State its relevance to the parameters you will be setting in FoilSim.
State the speed and angle required for your computer generated wing model:
for .25 N: ______ ______
for .5 N: ______ ______
for .75 N: _______ ______
Record your observations during the bicycle's movement.
Trial One with 25 grams - distance traveled: _____ time taken: _____
Trial Two with 50 grams - distance traveled: _____ time taken: _____
Trial Three with 75 grams - distance traveled: _____ time taken: _____
Calculate the speed of each trial: Trail One: _____ Trial Two: _____ Trial Three: _____
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.
