HW #3 (Due 2/21/2017)
Problem 1: (10pts) The altimeter (pressure altitude) on a
low-speed airplane reads 2 km. The airspeed indicator
reads 50 m/s (equivalent airspeed). If the outside air
temperature is 280 K, what is the true velocity?
Problem 2: (10pts
HW #2 (Due 2/14/2017)
Problem 1: Consider an airplane flying at a pressure
altitude of 5 km with a velocity of 270 m/s. At a point on
the wing, the velocity is measured at 330 m/s. Calculate the
pressure at this point.
Problem 2: A Boeing 747 is cruising
HW #5 (Due 3/7/2017)
Problem 1: (10pts) Consider a wing is mounted in a
subsonic wind tunnel, where the airflow velocity is 50 m/s.
If the velocity at a point on the wing is 60 m/s, what is the
pressure coefficient at this point?
Problem 2: (10pts) In Pro
HW #1 (Due 2/14/2017)
Problem 1: Consider an airplane flying at some altitude.
The outside pressure and temperature are 2.65x104 N/m2
and 220 K, respectively. What are the pressure and density
Problem 2: Consider an airplane flying at a pressur
HW #4 (Due 2/28/2017)
Problem 1: (10pts) Consider an infinite wing with a
NACA 23012 airfoil section and a chord length of 0.3 m. If
the wing is at an angle of attack of 8-deg in an airflow
velocity of 50 m/s at standard sea-level conditions.

What is LEON III?
Senior Project Lead: Francis Bostick
Propulsion for CubeSats
Design a thruster viable for a 1U-2U CubeSat
Lab: MIPSI for a dynamic system
(one lab per group)
PreLab: Brainstorm a physical system with an interesting question (not a Ph.D. dissertation), e.g., system
identification, design, stability, control, . . .
