Re: Density Lab B

At 2019 NC states there was a lab where you calculated the density of shaving cream. You sprayed some foam on a paper towel and sucked up a given amount using a syringe and calculated that density, then compressed the syringe a given amount and calculated that density.

Hi I'm having an issue with my glider transitioning from the launch to the glide. The glider does not have flaps and is made entirely of balsa. It has dihedral in the wing and stabilizer (no rudder/fin) When I just threw it, it glided pretty smoothly and was turning, but in the launch, it went stra...

Expected changes: - A&P returns to whatever systems it had in 2016 - Herpetology -> Ornithology - Water Quality focus changes to saltwater or estuaries, something like that - Dynamic Planet topic probably changes to Freshwater - Astronomy topic will change, details unknown but I expect star and pla...
