MAE 3241: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics Name: _________________ Concept Quiz #1 Circle all the answer choices that apply: 1. My primary area of interest within aerospace engineering is (structures / aerodynamics / flight controls / propulsion). 2. As a future career choice, I am most interested in studying and working on: (commercial airplanes / military airplane / helicopters / rockets for launch / deep space exploration vehicles / get an MBA and make serious \$\$). 3. Theoretically inviscid flow is approached when the Reynolds number approaches (zero / unity / infinity). When Re approaches infinity. Review Section 1.10.2 4. In very broad terms, a flow with constant density is called (inviscid / incompressible / compressible / transonic). Incompressible 5.

Unformatted text preview: uses a nitrogen cold gas thruster to provide small bursts of thrust. The pressure and temperature in the tank at the beginning of the thruster’s 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). This question is based on the ideal gas law: p= ρ RT. Writing the ideal gas law for both cases it can be seen that the density will remain constant....

### What students are saying

• 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.
