On homework # 2 - On problem 2 - I noticed that a lot of people screwed up their densities for water. The ones that gave the density in lb_m/ft^3 forgot to divide by a gravitational constant to convert to slug/ft^3. Some people found this weird density with alien units (about 20% of the class). I think it would help if the class was reminded of the difference between a lb, lb_m, and slug. Other things I noticed was that people didn't find the correct location of the centroid. Other people lost points for not showing the integrals

Unformatted text preview: And other people lost points for not explaining their answers or showing work. Below is a list of common mistakes on problem three: 1) students thought that coefficient of lift was Lift / Q * Length, rather than Lift / Q * Area 2) students thought that coefficient of pressure was Absolute Pressure / Q rather than Gauge Pressure / Q 3) no one took into account that temperature, mach number and viscosity changed with altitude...

    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.
