Unformatted text preview: Physics Airplane Project Established restrictions: 1. Budget: $10 dollars from school, $10 personally (not required). 2. Wingspan must be no less than 36 inches. 3. Final Due December 18 a. Design Due October 30 b. Foam Due November 20 c. Electronics Functional Due December 4 Need to Know ● ● How to design, build and operate RC airplanes How physics applies to our planes. Questions to answer ● ● ● ● ● What’s the acceleration of each plane? What is your airplane’s stall speed? What is the top speed of your plane? What is the wing load of your plane? +5 points possible if highly creative design Relevancy ● Physics of Flight­factors of power, drag, lift, etc. Realistic Scenario ● ● ● ● Stall speed Acceleration Supply Drop Air Show Competition Tech, tools ● ● ● Materials like fiberglass, wood, plastic, or foam to make aircraft body and wings. Prop, motor, 2 servos, servo push­rods, speed controller, battery Engineering of structural support Presentation ● ● Present how our plane can help the community, (e.g.helping children understand physics, say price so that kids can make them.) Airshow ​ Grading Rubric Requirements: B C D F (90­100%) Above & Beyond (80­89%) Satisfactory (70­79%) Mediocre (60­69%) Poor (0­59%) Foggy Brain Design of Airplane Drawn with an expressed scale. Airplane accurately resembles design. Drawn with an expressed scale. Airplane design modified on a couple parts. Airplane resembles design with many changes. Airplane poorly resembles design Was that design for your airplane? Restrictions Met All met Most met one met Quality of Airplane Performs well under stressful maneuvers, retains structural integrity throughout flight and landing Stays together with minimal or no structural damage Sustains moderate damage throughout flight but stays together Damaged in flight, pretty muchly useless afterwards, poorly built Falls apart in air, very poorly built Handling/ Ability to fly plane All team members can fly airplane (takeoff, 3 min flight, through landing) All can fly, one error. Only one member can fly it. Only one member with error. You built a car, not an airplane Supply Drop Within 50ft diameter. Successful drop Within 100 ft diameter. Successful drop Within 100 ft diameter. Two tries. Within 200 ft diameter. Two tries It dropped within two tries. Statistics (all questions answered) Full statistics on RC plane collected including top and stall speed, takeoff and landing speed, Collected most statistics Collected half of statistics Collected less than half Collected little or no statistics Community/School Presentation Planned, advertised, presented great. 80 percent of previous 60 percent of previous 40 percent of previous one class attended.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
