Re: Road Scholar B

The test was very good and well written, and the supervisor was helpful.

Were any of the top teams able to finish the test? (like, top 20)

Re: Simple Machines B/Compound Machines C

Does anyone else feel like the Nats test for SM was too easy? That was the general consensus between my teammate and I, so I'm just wondering what the other teams thought.

If it was asking for what resistor would dissipate the most power when plugged into a circuit, the answer is one that is equal to the equivalent resistance of the remainder of the circuit. It is called the Maximum Power Transfer Theorem . The problem being discussed went something like this (here's...
