Beginner's Guide to Aerodynamics
Size Effects Problem Set
Physical Science, Ratios
- Unifying Concepts
- Models and
- Change and
- Physical Science:
Motion and forces.
- Science and
Technology: Understandings about science and technology.
- 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
Size Effects page from a NASA Web-based textbook, you will demonstrate
an understanding of Size Effects by answering questions.
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 Size
Effects (with text). Study the labeled diagrams and read the explanation
of Size Effects. Then using the information shown at Size
Effects 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 size effects to airplane lift.
