Re: Technical Problem Solving C

I think you were supposed to determine the length of the 10cm and 100cm pendulum experimentally using the graphs, i.e. not simply just using the formula. If you found the length of those three pendulums and found their period, you could graph the period squared versus time to get a straight line, th...

Re: Technical Problem Solving C

Does anyone know of the breakdown of the Nat's scoring of tech trek? I'm kind of curious on how they broke ties/graded the 5 stations. Anyway, any thoughts on the event? I for one thoroughly enjoyed my free bottle of water.
