 Technology

  • Technology research tools - use content-specific tools, software and simulations to support learning and research.
  • Technology research tools - select and use appropriate tools and technology resources to accomplish a variety of tasks and solve problems.

Objectives:

After reading the Web page Turbojet Thrust and completing the activity, you will understand how jet engines use air to produce thrust.

The Beginner's Guide to Propulsion is a Web site of information prepared at NASA Glenn Research Center to help you better understand aircraft engine propulsion. Click Beginner's Guide Index to access the list of slides. Open the slide called Turbojet Thrust (with text), read the explanation, and use it to complete the activity.


Assessment:

You, or you and your partner(s), will be evaluated on the feasibility of your answers.

Evaluation:

You will demonstrate the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web and apply what you have learned about turbojet thrust.
