For my STEM project, I am designing a race car that will be able to race down an inclined plane and across a steady surface. The goal that I would like to achieve is having the car travel over a meter, however this will not be able to happen without the correct parts. Some features that my car will include are spoilers, wheels and axles, wings, and a special body shape. My sprint car demonstrates aerodynamics when the car moves through the air and across the surface. This is because the air is flowing around the car while it is racing down the inclined plane.
The results obtained are mostly consistent and support the hypothesis stated at the start of the experiment. The time taken for the car with the magnet will take more time to travel the distance on the aluminium strip compared to the car on the plastic strip as the magnet will cause friction and deviations on the path. More amount of trials and precision and a better range of distances could have been more accurate and constant which would lead to a better result. I could have also used better instruments to make it more efficient and realistic. Along with that, maybe a change of variables could help come to more of an accurate decision and prove the hypothesis
The amount of backscatter increases with beam intensity. It may seem natural to switch on high beams in order to see farther. In fact, the main effect is to scatter more light back to the eye and to decrease visibility. Fog lights minimize backscatter by sitting well below eye level, aiming straight ahead and minimizing direct reflection back to the driver’s eye. They further illuminate fog near the ground, where density may be
It is crucial to keeping the car on the track. While racing the tires on the car provide the friction which is part of this force. The force needed to keep the car on the track cannot exceed the square of the car speed. If the speed of the car is greater than the force of friction during a turn the cars wheels will leave the ground causing it to crash. This is why they bank the race track to give the car more friction so It will not lose control and cause an
The big car’s wheels were farther apart, and it might have scraped the track at the back, making it lose time. The wheelbase might have been why the smaller cars went faster. The results of the experiment make sense, because you need a hill to get the cars started, and the big car might have scraped the track. There could have been several extraneous variables such as stopping the stopwatch at a different point on the car, the tape making it weigh more, or if the stopwatch was not working properly. If one run had been at a colder temperature than another, then something could have happened to the wheels.
The German art and design school, The Bauhaus, was one of the most influential modernist art schools, one of whose approach to teaching and understanding art’s relationship to technology and society had a major impact in United States and Europe, long after it closed. The motivation behind the creation of the Bauhaus lay in anxieties about the soullessness of manufacturing in the 19th century, and in fears about art’s loss of purpose in society. Emerged in the mid 1920, the Bauhaus was shaped by the late 19th and early 20th movements and trends, which had sought to level the distinction between applied and fine arts and to reunite manufacturing and creativity. This fact is reflected in the romantic medievalism of the school’s early years,
The two large tires in the back help keep the race car on the ground and try to make sure that the car goes in a straight line and the skinny tires in the front give less rotating mass. There are many reasons people should improve their aerodynamics in cars, the biggest reason is fuel economy. All-fit automotive says “Drag places additional strain on your engine and causes you to burn more fuel, but aerodynamic improvements will reduce drag by enabling your vehicle to navigate against the airflow with less resistance. As a result, your gas mileage improves and you save money at the
It had always been Mies’ dream to produce architecture of ‘almost nothing’ through buildings with the same minimal quality as the most elemental drawing. To him, architecture is about achieving the maximum effect using the minimum of apparent means. The Barcelona Pavilion is an excellent example of punctuated emptiness and lightness through immateriality as an architectural material. The contradiction here lies in Mies’ use of finely wrought materials to create a space of almost nothing. A common understanding would be that materials do not matter much in architecture of ethereal nature, and that the use of least obtrusive materials would be the design strategy.
Unlike the GM model the optimal velocity model allows the possibility of different kind of cars with different speed ranges. The optimal velocity model can be generalized and to do this one assumes that the optimal velocity function depends not only on the headway of each car but also on the headway of the immediate preceding
