We have our ways...Wow how do u get it to balance that fast and put the numbers in the calculator?!
Sorry for posting twice. I've never needed it, but the biggest competition I've been to is Booth Invitational, where us and the first place team both got a perfect score on the test (I've never actually seen a difficult test for Simple Machines in Science Olympiad).Is force decomposition necessary to know on higher level tests?
First of all, this could vary on the question so always use your best judgement. The normal definition of "mechanical advantage" is the measure of force amplification - so this is essentially the same as AMA, the ratio of force out to force in. However, oftentimes if they are not bothering to specify AMA or IMA they will be talking about an ideal machine, with no friction, so IMA=AMA=MA.Sorry for double posting, but when they say MA, do they usually tend to say IMA or AMA? Sorry if it's a stupid question.
Did you medal? (I'm betting on 1-6 place for that time)Hi, I'm doing it at states, and my partner and I can average around 18-20 seconds.
