MAE 1202: Aerospace Practicum Name: _______________________ Concept Quiz #1 Circle all the answer choices that apply: 1. I am (not at all / somewhat / very / extremely) excited about studying aerospace engineering at Florida Tech. 2. My primary area of interest is (structures / aerodynamics / flight controls / propulsion). 3. All of the following are major components of a gas turbine engine, EXCEPT : (Compressor / Burner / Turbine / Vertical Stabilizer). 4. As a future career choice, I am most interested in studying and working on: (airplanes / helicopters / rockets for launch / deep space exploration vehicles). 5. I learn best when the notes are (written on the whiteboard / presented in PowerPoint format / a mix of both). 6. Designing an aerospace structure for a space application is always much simpler than

Unformatted text preview: designing one for a terrestrial application (True / False). 7. To maintain its orbital attitude and inclination a small communications satellite uses a nitrogen cold gas thruster to provide small bursts of thrust. The pressure and temperature in the tank at the beginning of the thrusters lifetime (launch) is 30 atmospheres and 300 K, respectively. After 1 year of operation in the cold space environment the pressure and temperature within the tank are 15 atmospheres and 150 K. During this time, the density of the nitrogen has (increased by a factor of 10 / decreased by a factor of 10 / increased by a factor of 2 / decreased by a factor of 2 / remained the same)....
