Ron Angold March 13, 2008 Brae 348 Passive Solar House The design for our solar house is based on a few several theories.  First we needed our  house to collect as much solar energy as possible.  To achieve this we calculated the angle of  our collecting glass by using the latitude of San Luis Obispo.  For our collecting glass we used a  double pain window to allow for better collection of solar radiation.  In addition to this we had to  solar wings on each side of our house plated with foil to direct more solar radiation into the  house.   Another key component to our house was the thermal mass.  For this we filled up  several straws with water and painted them black.  We also placed our straws at the optimum  angle to receive the maximum amount of sunlight.

    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.
