Re: Remote Sensing C

straight off a test I did on the wiki In my experience, this is common in Remote. I don't know how regionals are in IL. In my years in Div B Georgia invitationals tended to have better tests, but it's the opposite in Div C; invitationals tend to have low-quality tests. Hm, I think that maybe the su...

Re: Materials Science C

Ah, ok. Is this what you are looking for? Vitrification is a process in which the materials that can melt, melt and then they fill in the little pores and gaps which promotes melting and compacting and thereby strengthens the entire body. Yep! Your turn. Great. What is Vapor pressure, and how does ...

Re: Remote Sensing C

Um, I really don't know any of these although I'll still give it a shot.

Here goes:

You will need MODIS (my logic is that it can measure cloud cover and CO2 concentration) and you can use Terra. You would want it to fly there ASAP, so assuming right now it would be 6:38 PM UTC.

Re: Remote Sensing C

Awesome! Describe the difference between along track and across track scanning, and give the more informal names of these types of scanning for an extra point. Along track (push broom) scanning works like a crop duster, it scans a wide swath of terrain and moves unilaterally Across track (whisk bro...

Re: Towers B/C

I think its the wood that takes damage, since if you put a structure under stress many times its bound to fail. I believe its called Fatigue Limit (thanks materials science!) Unless you cannot make another one for the competition and your towers have survived 6 times, I think there is a very good ch...

Re: Materials Science C

What is the name of the process by which a clay ceramic hardens under firing? Describe the microstructural changes of the ceramic during this process. I googled some info but I'm not sure what name you are referring to- most of the sites I found just called the process "firing". I found that the wa...
