Re: Wind Power C

I would differ on the binder issue... Our state test was absurdly easy, and a significant joke. Most of the questions were straight units, like asking what a calorie is, in a T/F question. It also asked what the two types of energy were, and so forth. Really, most of the unit stuff was out of the b...

Re: Wind Power C

I wouldn't call this test very easy... last year's Physics Lab test was much easier and it was supposed to be the same topics, although it wasn't. I thought this year's test (all the labeling) was kinda stupid. You aced it if you happened to have it in your reference binder, and you probably had so...

Re: Wind Power C

Basic information isn't enough.
Whenever "basic information" is mentioned in the event description, expect it to be more than just "basic information".

Re: Wind Power C

You want a very minuscule angle on the outside, because it has to spin faster, this will eliminate drag, but a higher pitch on the inside. Yes, though the point I was trying to make with the little story is that the building section of this event is more empirical (; And 4.2 is pretty crazy, even i...

Re: Wind Power C

Ok, something strange at our tournaments this year. All the judges at the tournaments this year seem to think that the rules when they say that the contestants can alter the posistion, it only means on an X and Y plane, and the CD mount is a set distance away from the fan. I had a bit of a problem ...

The highest I've ever gotten was like 2100 or,,, 2.1 i had two blades (though I recommend 3 because some law,,, idk,,,? states that 3 blades the best for that,, whatever) and used balsa wood (wow) to connect the b...

Re: Wind Power C

Having never competed on the national level, and having finally won our state tournament yesterday, is there anyone who can tell me what the winning voltages at the national tournament were last year? I know that this info is completely subjective and almost completely useless, but it might indicat...

Re: South California

I agree, congratulations everyone!

If anyone has any questions about shock value, wind power, or optics feel free to ask me!
So I'm guessing you wrote the wind power test? I really liked the Wind Power test, which may oppose the viewpoint of other schools.
