ENES 100 Introduction to Engineering Design Fall 2010 1 of 2 Problem Set #6 Assigned: Oct. 8, 2010 Due Date: In class on Oct. 18 (M) or Oct. 19 (Tu) Reading: Chapter 6 of the course text on Programming Chapter 7 of the course text on Pro/Engineer Problems: 1. You have a circular, disk-shaped hovercraft with radius, R = 200 mm, mass m = 1.5 kg, and two thrust fans with maximum thrust F = 2 N each. The hovercraft has a calibrated line-following light sensor and a compass, situated as shown. The track is along a heading of 0°, with negative headings to the left and positive headings to the right. Initially, the hovercraft is at rest with a heading of 0°, offset from the black line by 200 mm, and it is programmed to follow the pseudo-code flow diagram as shown. You may assume all friction forces are zero. A. What is the moment of inertia for the hovercraft? B. Describe the behavior of the hovercraft in each phase of the algorithm. C.
