Re: Wind Power B/C

With respect to the Wright Stuff comparison - I understand your point, but they don't square the flight times ! Additionally, nobody has requested that the square root of the times be used to rank teams. Again, I'd like to point out that (IMO) power is a more fundamental measurement of how good a w...

Re: Wind Power B/C

Could the calculation of the Power score based on Voltage instead of Power? For the current calculation, the difference of the voltage is square and this could be a huge difference in the points and it is much harder to narrow the gap in the written part. If a team has a blade assembly that generat...

Re: Cell Biology C

In mass spectrometry, matter is ionized and then sped up and put through a magnetic field and basically the radius of the circle the matter makes in the magnetic field can be used to determine the charge/mass ratio, and the relative amounts of matter at different charge/mass ratios can tell you abou...

Re: Astronomy C

Top was just under 40%. I was aiming for ~70%, but uh, that didn't happen...
My partner and I (3rd in SEPA this year) just took it and got 58, though we probably could've managed our time better.
