Re: Shock Value B

The problem for theoretical current was: List the resistnace of each resistor solve for the theoretical current and voltage drop for each resistor in the circuit. There was a circucit that was parallel. The resistances were the following: R1-55 R2-18 R3-10 R4-75 R5-100 R6-15 R7-22 . how would you th...

Re: Flight Times

thanks a bunch jcollier and jander, it sounds like you guys have it exactly right. Jander, where would you recommend buying a rubber band with a diamter of .075??? We would always love and some more time on it to increase times!

What is an effective way to bend the wood? Would you reccomend using a straight piece of wood or using a bent one? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each choice?

Re: Flight Times

yes goblue007 is my partner for wirght stuff. We took 3rd with a 1:58 at an invitational. I think that the winning time was around 2:45 or so. The plane tends to climb nicely, turning in a normal fashion, although when the plane is coming down, it does so very quickly. My coach thought that we shoul...

Re: Shock Value B

ok i get it, but what if you have a resistance of let's say 55 on ONE of the known resistances and the voltage is 24. How would you figure out the current to figure out the current to figure out the voltage drop??? (answers: current is .289 A and the voltage drop is 15.9) Resistor Resistance in ohms...

Re: Shock Value B

Wait a sec... could you have more than one voltage drop or not?

Re: Shock Value B

Ohhhhh. ok so you take your total resistance and use ohm's law to figure out the current. then you use the current and multiply it by one of the resistors to get the voltage drop?
