'''Ladue Horton Watkins High School''' is a school in Ladue, St. Louis County, [[Missouri]] run by a combination of student and teacher leadership. Historically, the high school did not have high amounts of sponsorship and thus fell short of expectations. More recently, Ladue has experienced a resurgence on the state level, finishing either 1st or 2nd at every Missouri State Finals since 2008. The strength of Ladue's program largely comes from the continued commitment of students from its feeder school, [[Ladue Middle School]].<br />
<br />
This school has two main rivals: [[Clayton High School]] at the regional competition, and [[Pembroke Hill High School]] at the state competition.<br />

==Competition History==<br />
<br />
Willpan99 has participated in numerous competitions since 3rd grade, when he started competing in the state math competition program and in his chess school's tournaments. Taking 7th place overall in the state math competition in 4th grade motivated him to continue to find new subjects to compete in and to improve himself to become a much better competitor. <br />
<br />
Luckily, entering middle school opened up many more opportunities for his competition career. He, along with some other friends, represented [[Crestview Middle School]] (a historically prominent Science Olympiad competitor, whose program is now defunct; however, it feeds into [[Marquette High School]]) in numerous math competitions such as continuing the state math competition program, MATHCOUNTS, and even the AMCs.<br />
However, there was always the one school that kept beating them at, well, pretty much everything: <i>Ladue</i>. No matter how hard they tried, they just could not beat those four people who stole the top spots at what seemed like every math competition in Missouri. <br />
<br />
Alas, one day, Willpan99 felt like he needed a new group of friends; to him, he just didn't get enough attention from his current group. His parents had him apply to a couple of private schools: the prestigious [[John Burroughs High School|John Burroughs]] and [[Mary Institute and Country Day School|MICDS]]. Both of them rejected him, and where did he have to go now? He was now in the boundaries of [[Ladue Middle School]], and on the first day at his new school, aspired to meet the people who always beat him. He met lots of other people there who also had prodigious talents, and it seemed like everyone was smarter than him. What did he do? He took all the numerous new opportunities that this school had to offer, and eventually rose up to the level of the competitors that he had wondered over in the past. <br />
<br />
That's the story of how Willpan99 ended up in Science Olympiad. He now competes in most of the educational competitions offered that include but are not limited to: Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, math competitions, and swimming. His current journey through high school has placed him in the USABO Biology Olympiad, the NACLO Linguistics Olympiad, piano competitions, and even a few Speech and Debate tournaments.<br />

Somehow, the only reason I made the main team was because of my exceptional performance in Road Scholar. I took on Air Trajectory (while sacrificing many Saturdays to test the machine), which also had only one 7th grader competing. Despite our poorer performance in regionals (didn't even hit the target) and state (better, but... not close), we used many, many hours between State and Nationals to test the machine. At Nationals, this effort paid off; my only, extreme regret is that we could have medaled, but I was being so rushed and bossy that we forgot to put the ball into the machine for the last shot. <br />
<br />
Air Trajectory Build: A bunch of PVC pipes on a wooden base, with holes drilled at the weight drop for adjustable height. A plastic soda bottle was screwed into a flexible tube connected to the end of the shooting pipe. Golf balls(?) were shot out when the horseshoe weight hit the bottle. Experimentation: Only consistency was extensively measured out and fixed; everything else somehow turned out fine.<br />

My 13th place Road Scholar at 2016's national competition had motivated me to do better; my old partner and I had managed to finish the test (as our coach had doubted that we would), but we probably should have done better without the stupid mistakes that had brought me down from my competition career in 3rd grade. Therefore (as [[User:dxu46|my partner]] described), we went into "overdrive"; this effort paid off.<br />
<br />
I was also happy to be competing in Anatomy and Wright Stuff for state. The other person competing for the second spot in Anatomy, however, merely had a conflict at the state competition with another event, and again ousted me out of the national competition spot. My partner for Wright Stuff also had two planes that consistently flew longer than my own plane, so he got to choose a partner for Nationals. And Write It Do It? I was happy to make the event, but I was definitely not happy that my performance was... terrible.<br />
<br />
Wright Stuff Build: A plane that flew for 2 minutes at one point two weeks before the state competition but dwindled down to a point that it couldn't fly; I gave up.<br />

Since I was a 9th grader this year, I knew I would have a large influence on the team. So, I competed for spots in 7 events (none of them conflicted!) and got a top 5 ranking in all of them. However, my abilities were still outmatched in most of them; I continued the events I had always dedicated myself to. My performance in Anatomy and Road Scholar were good, as usual, but I completely messed up the laser shoot in Optics and lost the tiebreaker in Write It Do It. I then withdrew myself, but that extra time wasn't enough to improve my ever-deteriorating performance in WIDI. At state, we lost the (not first, but now only) spot for Nationals by <i>one point</i>. This was devastating to the team, but I just told myself that I wouldn't do Write It Do It for the high school ever again, and that a loss was probably inevitable; everyone gets what they want at some point in time, even if it's the enemy. <br />
<br />
After that devastating loss for both the middle and high school teams, next year for Ladue Science Olympiad would be: the year of the grind.<br />
<br />
Wright Stuff Build: A lesser plane restricted by the rules that flew for 1:50 but still couldn't beat other planes; it too eventually dwindled to a useless contraption after two weeks before regionals.<br />

Alas, even though I tried even more as a younger member of the high school, we still couldn't overcome the injustice of Missouri's one-bid situation. I began the year extremely unconfident in my ability to make the main high school team. However, my presence and somehow good performance (despite having competitions the day before tryouts and extreme procrastination: anybody else start studying the morning before a test?) in my numerous events landed me in a good spot, even competing in more events than I did in middle school. I also somehow joined into a four-person group for Protein Modeling due to invitational conflicts, despite having scored 20% on the event's tests in tryouts...<br />
<br />
At least I found courage to pick up WIDI again! The performance wasn't as disappointing this time, because I just had to focus more on getting things right instead of the dang tiebreaker. Next year, though, will still be: the year of the extreme fiery eyed grind. Hopefully, I don't procrastinate and just not study Anatomy.<br />

==Competition History==<br />
<br />
Willpan99 has participated in numerous competitions since 3rd grade, when he started competing in the state math competition program and in his chess school's tournaments. Taking 7th place overall in the state math competition in 4th grade motivated him to continue to find new subjects to compete in and to improve himself to become a much better competitor. <br />
<br />
Luckily, entering middle school opened up many more opportunities for his competition career. He, along with some other friends, represented [[Crestview Middle School]] (a historically prominent Science Olympiad competitor, whose program is now defunct; however, it feeds into [[Marquette High School]]) in numerous math competitions such as continuing the state math competition program, MATHCOUNTS, and even the AMCs.<br />
However, there was always the one school that kept beating them at, well, pretty much everything: <i>Ladue</i>. No matter how hard they tried, they just could not beat those four people who stole the top spots at what seemed like every math competition in Missouri. <br />
<br />
Alas, one day, Willpan99 felt like he needed a new group of friends; to him, he just didn't get enough attention from his current group. His parents had him apply to a couple of private schools: the prestigious [[John Burroughs High School|John Burroughs]] and [[Mary Institute and Country Day School|MICDS]]. Both of them rejected him, and where did he have to go now? He was now in the boundaries of [[Ladue Middle School]], and on the first day at his new school, aspired to meet the people who always beat him. He met lots of other people there who also had prodigious talents, and it seemed like everyone was smarter than him. What did he do? He took all the numerous new opportunities that this school had to offer, and eventually rose up to the level of the competitors that he had wondered over in the past. <br />
<br />
That's the story of how Willpan99 ended up in Science Olympiad. He now competes in most of the educational competitions offered that include but are not limited to: Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, math competitions, and swimming. His current journey through high school has placed him in the USABO Biology Olympiad, the NACLO Linguistics Olympiad, piano competitions, and even a few Speech and Debate tournaments.<br />

Somehow, the only reason I made the main team was because of my exceptional performance in Road Scholar. I took on Air Trajectory (while sacrificing many Saturdays to test the machine), which also had only one 7th grader competing. Despite our poorer performance in regionals (didn't even hit the target) and state (better, but... not close), we used many, many hours between State and Nationals to test the machine. At Nationals, this effort paid off; my only, extreme regret is that we could have medaled, but I was being so rushed and bossy that we forgot to put the ball into the machine for the last shot. <br />
<br />
Air Trajectory Build: A bunch of PVC pipes on a wooden base, with holes drilled at the weight drop for adjustable height. A plastic soda bottle was screwed into a flexible tube connected to the end of the shooting pipe. Golf balls(?) were shot out when the horseshoe weight hit the bottle. Experimentation: Only consistency was extensively measured out and fixed; everything else somehow turned out fine.<br />

My 13th place Road Scholar at 2016's national competition had motivated me to do better; my old partner and I had managed to finish the test (as our coach had doubted that we would), but we probably should have done better without the stupid mistakes that had brought me down from my competition career in 3rd grade. Therefore (as [[User:dxu46|my partner]] described), we went into "overdrive"; this effort paid off.<br />
<br />
I was also happy to be competing in Anatomy and Wright Stuff for state. The other person competing for the second spot in Anatomy, however, merely had a conflict at the state competition with another event, and again ousted me out of the national competition spot. My partner for Wright Stuff also had two planes that consistently flew longer than my own plane, so he got to choose a partner for Nationals. And Write It Do It? I was happy to make the event, but I was definitely not happy that my performance was... terrible.<br />
<br />
Wright Stuff Build: A plane that flew for 2 minutes at one point two weeks before the state competition but dwindled down to a point that it couldn't fly; I gave up.<br />

Since I was a 9th grader this year, I knew I would have a large influence on the team. So, I competed for spots in 7 events (none of them conflicted!) and got a top 5 ranking in all of them. However, my abilities were still outmatched in most of them; I continued the events I had always dedicated myself to. My performance in Anatomy and Road Scholar were good, as usual, but I completely messed up the laser shoot in Optics and lost the tiebreaker in Write It Do It. I then withdrew myself, but that extra time wasn't enough to improve my ever-deteriorating performance in WIDI. At state, we lost the (not first, but now only) spot for Nationals by <i>one point</i>. This was devastating to the team, but I just told myself that I wouldn't do Write It Do It for the high school ever again, and that a loss was probably inevitable; everyone gets what they want at some point in time, even if it's the enemy. <br />
<br />
After that devastating loss for both the middle and high school teams, next year for Ladue Science Olympiad would be: the year of the grind.<br />

Alas, even though I tried even more as a younger member of the high school, we still couldn't overcome the injustice of Missouri's one-bid situation. I began the year extremely unconfident in my ability to make the main high school team. However, my presence and somehow good performance (despite having competitions the day before tryouts and extreme procrastination: anybody else start studying the morning before a test?) in my numerous events landed me in a good spot, even competing in more events than I did in middle school. I also somehow joined into a four-person group for Protein Modeling due to invitational conflicts, despite having scored 20% on the event's tests in tryouts...<br />
<br />
At least I found courage to pick up WIDI again! The performance wasn't as disappointing this time, because I just had to focus more on getting things right instead of the dang tiebreaker. Next year, though, will still be: the year of the extreme fiery eyed grind. Hopefully, I don't procrastinate and just not study Anatomy.<br />

==Competition History==<br />
<br />
Willpan99 has participated in numerous competitions since 3rd grade, when he started competing in the state math competition program and in his chess school's tournaments. Taking 7th place overall in the state math competition in 4th grade motivated him to continue to find new subjects to compete in and to improve himself to become a much better competitor. <br />
<br />
Luckily, entering middle school opened up many more opportunities for his competition career. He, along with some other friends, represented [[Crestview Middle School]] (a historically prominent Science Olympiad competitor, whose program is now defunct; however, it feeds into [[Marquette High School]]) in numerous math competitions such as continuing the state math competition program, MATHCOUNTS, and even the AMCs.<br />
However, there was always the one school that kept beating them at, well, pretty much everything: <i>Ladue</i>. No matter how hard they tried, they just could not beat those four people who stole the top spots at what seemed like every math competition in Missouri. <br />
<br />
Alas, one day, Willpan99 felt like he needed a new group of friends; to him, he just didn't get enough attention from his current group. His parents had him apply to a couple of private schools: the prestigious [[John Burroughs High School|John Burroughs]] and [[Mary Institute and Country Day School|MICDS]]. Both of them rejected him, and where did he have to go now? He was now in the boundaries of [[Ladue Middle School]], and on the first day at his new school, aspired to meet the people who always beat him. He met lots of other people there who also had prodigious talents, and it seemed like everyone was smarter than him. What did he do? He took all the numerous new opportunities that this school had to offer, and eventually rose up to the level of the competitors that he had wondered over in the past. <br />
<br />
That's the story of how Willpan99 ended up in Science Olympiad. He now competes in most of the educational competitions offered that include but are not limited to: Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, math competitions, and swimming. His current journey through high school has placed him in the USABO Biology Olympiad, the NACLO Linguistics Olympiad, piano competitions, and even a few Speech and Debate tournaments.<br />

Somehow, the only reason I made the main team was because of my exceptional performance in Road Scholar. I took on Air Trajectory (while sacrificing many Saturdays to test the machine), which also had only one 7th grader competing. Despite our poorer performance in regionals (didn't even hit the target) and state (better, but... not close), we used many, many hours between State and Nationals to test the machine. At Nationals, this effort paid off; my only, extreme regret is that we could have medaled, but I was being so rushed and bossy that we forgot to put the ball into the machine for the last shot. <br />
<br />
Air Trajectory Build: A bunch of PVC pipes on a wooden base, with holes drilled at the weight drop for adjustable height. A plastic soda bottle was screwed into a flexible tube connected to the end of the shooting pipe. Golf balls(?) were shot out when the horseshoe weight hit the bottle. Experimentation: Only consistency was extensively measured out and fixed; everything else somehow turned out fine.<br />

My 13th place Road Scholar at 2016's national competition had motivated me to do better; my old partner and I had managed to finish the test (as our coach had doubted that we would), but we probably should have done better without the stupid mistakes that had brought me down from my competition career in 3rd grade. Therefore (as [[User:dxu46|my partner]] described), we went into "overdrive"; this effort paid off.<br />
<br />
I was also happy to be competing in Anatomy and Wright Stuff for state. The other person competing for the second spot in Anatomy, however, merely had a conflict at the state competition with another event, and again ousted me out of the national competition spot. My partner for Wright Stuff also had two planes that consistently flew longer than my own plane, so he got to choose a partner for Nationals. And Write It Do It? I was happy to make the event, but I was definitely not happy that my performance was... terrible.<br />
<br />
Wright Stuff Build: A plane that flew for 2 minutes at one point two weeks before the state competition but dwindled down to a point that it couldn't fly; I gave up.<br />

However, my abilities were still outmatched in most of them; I continued the events I had always dedicated myself to. My performance in Anatomy and Road Scholar were good, as usual, but I completely messed up the laser shoot in Optics and lost the tiebreaker in Write It Do It. I then withdrew myself, but that extra time wasn't enough to improve my ever-deteriorating performance in WIDI. At state, we lost the (not first, but now only) spot for Nationals by <i>one point</i>. This was devastating to the team, but I just told myself that I wouldn't do Write It Do It for the high school ever again, and that a loss was probably inevitable; everyone gets what they want at some point in time, even if it's the enemy. <br />

Ladue Horton Watkins High School is a school in Ladue, St. Louis County, [[Missouri]] run by a combination of student and teacher leadership. Previously, the high school did not have high amounts of sponsorship and thus fell short of expectations. In recent years, Ladue has experienced a resurgence under renewed interests, contributed by the continued commitment of students from its feeder school [[Ladue Middle School]].<br />
<br />
This school has two main rivals: [[John Burroughs High School]] at the regional competition, and [[Pembroke Hill High School]] at the state competition.<br />

'''Hovercraft''' is an event where teams must design and build a hovercraft. It is a [[Division B]] and [[Division C]] event for the [[2017]] and [[2018]] seasons. Teams will build self-propelled air-levitated vehicles, and also take a test on classical mechanics and other similar topics. The trial rules used at the [[University of Wisconsin 2016|2016 National Tournament]] can be found at the bottom of the page in the "Links" section.<br />
<br />
==Description==<br />
Hovercraft is a dual lab, consisting of a test and a build portion. The test portion should take at least 20 minutes and competitors are allowed only 8 minutes to run their device. A 3-ring [[Binders|binder]] of any size is allowed, provided that all materials are hole punched and secure. Calculators of any type are also allowed and need not be impounded.<br />
<br />
==Device==<br />
<br />
There are certain basic parameters which should be kept in mind while constructing the Hovercraft: <br />
* The device must fit into a 40cm x 40cm x 40cm cube(including an inflated skirt). <br />
* There is '''no limit''' on the mass of the vehicle, however, it is optimal that the craft is as light as possible to account for the mass of the added coins. <br />
** Note: Teams should not abandon functionality for the sake of a perfect score, if the device is too heavy it may not complete a successful run. <br />
* The device may be constructed of any material but may not modify or damage the track. <br />
* Each device may only have up to '''two''' two motors each rotating one propeller or impeller. <br />
* All propellers/impellers must have shielding'''(including under the device)''', preventing a '''3/8" ''' dowel from touching them. <br />
* The vehicle must have a 1/4" or larger dowel vertically attached within 5.0 cm of its front edge such that the top end is at least 20 cm above the lowest vehicle surface.<br />
* '''''Bonus: The vehicle may carry a mass consisting up to 16 standard, unopened rolls of U.S pennies(16 rolls is approx. 2,000 grams).'''''<br />
* Batteries may not exceed 9.0 volts as determined by their label. <br />
** '''Both lead and lithium batteries are now banned as per the soinc.org battery policy.''' <br />
* Electrical components shall be limited to: <br />
** Batteries<br />
** Wires <br />
** Motors<br />
** Switches <br />
** Resistors <br />
** Potentiometers(Rheostats) <br />
** Capacitors <br />
** Mechanical Relays <br />
** Fans <br />
** Blowers <br />
** Brushless motors and integrated circuits are not permitted unless they are part or-or embedded into commercially available fans used for cooling electronics or computers. <br />
<br />
===Hovercraft Deisgn===<br />
<br />
Hovercrafts have a few essential parts - the base of the hovercraft itself, the fans, the batteries, the wiring/switch, and the skirt. The best teams will experiment with all these parts to find a successful design. The speed control methods will vary from device to device, ranging from fine-tuned potentiometers to simply covering up the thrust fan with tape to reduce airflow. Unlike some events, there is no single "best" method for all teams; instead, the best method is the one which has been tested most.<br />
<br />
===Base===<br />
<br />
The base is likely the simplest thing to construct on the hovercraft. However, it still merits consideration in designing the most efficient device possible. A good base will make it easy to test and swap out components without destroying any structural support, among other considerations. It should also be strong enough to support all components without pushing the weight above 2000 g.<br />
<br />
There are many choices of materials when constructing a base. Common selections include foam core and basswood sheets, though others are certainly possible. Materials should be light enough to allow weight adjustment to change while maximizing the mass score.<br />
<br />
Also important are fan coverings. The rules require shielding over the fans with holes of 1/4" in diameter or smaller, so the base needs to include some form of covering (eg. mesh) so that no fan blades are exposed.<br />
<br />
Besides the basics, any other information will depend entirely on the chosen components.<br />
<br />
===Fans===<br />
<br />
Fans are some of the most important components to a functional, efficient hovercraft. Fans have entirely different requirements for lift and thrust, and should be selected accordingly. It can be very helpful to enable swapping of fans, which facilitates testing.<br />
<br />
====Lift====<br />
<br />
Centrifugal blower fans are considered the most efficient type of lift fan, both in real-world designs and Science Olympiad devices. To fully support a 2 kg hovercraft, a fairly high pressure is required, making blower fans more efficient than traditional axial fans.<br />
<br />
====Thrust====<br />
<br />
Thrust fans should instead prioritize CFM to provide maximum acceleration. Although it is possible to successfully use a powerful computer fan, hobby motors have the potential to be more effective and more adjustable. Devices need to be able to work on all surfaces, not just those they have been tested on.<br />
<br />
===Batteries===<br />
<br />
There are a few possible choices for batteries.<br />
<br />
Traditional commercial batteries, like AAs or 9Vs could work, but are unlikely to provide the amperage required to lift and propel a heavy device.<br />
<br />
Many teams use lithium-polymer batteries, or LiPos. However, most LiPos are only 7.2V. This is significantly lower than the allowed voltage of 9V, and may not be enough to power 12V commercial fans.<br />
<br />
The most ideal solution seems to be nickel-metal hydride batteries, or NiMHs. NiMH batteries can be found up to 8.4V, but often overcharge above 9 volts, meaning they can very effectively be used even with 12V components.<br />
<br />
Although voltage is an important specification for any batteries used in hovercraft, so is capacity. Many teams use 3000 mAh batteries, which are more than enough for the amount of testing done in the Hovercraft event. 5000 mAh batteries are also available, and allow for longer testing periods but are more expensive. Some companies offer 1600 mAh batteries, but higher capacity is preferable.<br />
<br />
Caution is needed when using either LiPo or NiMH batteries, which can be extremely dangerous if used improperly. NiMH batteries are typically less likely to catch fire than LiPOs, which can go up in flames should they be improperly charged. However, should a NiMH battery be damaged, they explode rather than catch fire. However, this is only the case if the battery is very compromised.<br />
<br />
A general guideline is to charge NiMH batteries at 1 C. For a typical 3000 mAh battery, this means charging at 3.0 A.<br />
<br />
===Wiring===<br />
<br />
Wiring should be fairly cut-and-dry. Wires should be selected based on the power specifications of fans and batteries. There are many options available for switches, and very simple designs will work. Many household switches have two sides, perfect for the two circuits needed to power two fans. JST connectors or similar can be used to enable easy swapping of components, especially batteries and fans.<br />
<br />
===Skirt===<br />
<br />
The skirt is likely the most difficult part of a hovercraft to perfect. Beyond hardware like fans and batteries, the skirt is the largest determining factor of a device's success. Skirts need to have as low of friction as possible to have accurate results and to enable low speed runs. Many hovercraft failed at the MI and PA state competitions when the track was created out of plywood, as many designs were unable to compensate for such high friction.<br />
<br />
There are practically infinite possible variations of the hovercraft skirt. However, these can be divided into a few smaller subsets.<br />
<br />
The bag skirt is exactly what it sounds like - a completely contained cushion of air, possibly with small holes poked in it to decrease friction. This is one of the most common designs in Science Olympiad, seeing as it is easy to construct and fairly stable. However, its shortcoming lies in friction, as bag skirts are generally one of the most high friction skirt designs.<br />
<br />
The wall skirt is the other variation likely to be found in Science Olympiad competitions. The skirt itself is only a wall around the pocket of air, but all surfaces must be flat for the purpose of Science Olympiad, so a wall skirt can still contain a pocket of air. Unfortunately, the wall skirt is more prone to air leakage and difficult to construct, which makes it difficult to effectively use this design.<br />
<br />
Other innovations can be added to these types of skirts. One design used in many real-world hovercraft is the momentum curtain, which directs airflow to the edges of the hovercraft before bending down to propel the hovercraft up. This has the benefit of placing the highest pressure region near to the ground as opposed to in the center of a cushion of air. Also, many Science Olympiad hovercraft use a flat piece of wood or foam core at the bottom of a bag skirt to create a flat surface and decrease friction.<br />
<br />
The finger skirt is the third common category of hovercraft skirts, but is very unlikely to be used as almost all high school students lack the tools to construct such a complicated design.<br />
<br />
Testing, testing, and more testing is the only way to guarantee a good skirt design and a good overall score. Many teams are buying the same fans and batteries, so what truly sets teams apart is their skirts.<br />
<br />
==Written Exam==<br />
<br />
Part 1 of the event consists of a written test which draws from the AP Physics 1, or algebra-based mechanics, curriculum. This test must contain at least five questions from each of the following topics: Newton's laws of motion, kinematics, kinetic energy, air cushioned vehicles and applications, and fluid mechanics for Div. C only. 20 – 30 minutes is suggested to complete this test. All answers must be provided in metric units along with the appropriate significant figures.<br />
<br />
===Newton's Laws of Motion===<br />
<br />
====Newton's First Law====<br />
<br />
''An object will remain at rest or in uniform motion unless acted on by an external force.''<br />
<br />
Newton's first law describes inertia, the tendency of an object to maintain a constant velocity in the absence of an external force.<br />
<br />
====Newton's Second Law====<br />
<br />
''The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.''<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]F = ma[/math]</div><br />
<br />
Newton's second law describes the relationship between force, mass, and acceleration as represented above. Common problems for this section will give 2 of the values, and ask for the third. This idea is also likely to be used within larger, more difficult problems as a simple conversion step.<br />
<br />
====Newton's Third Law====<br />
<br />
''Every action has an equal and opposite reaction''<br />
<br />
Forces always occur in equal action-reaction pairs, no matter what the masses of the objects being acted upon are.<br />
<br />
For example, if a 5 (metric) ton collides with a 5 gram mosquito, both experience the same force - the mosquito just experiences a greater acceleration due to its lesser mass. Similarly, a rifle recoils, as the force that propels a bullet forward must have an equal and opposite reaction, which propels the rifle backwards.<br />
<br />
===Kinematics===<br />
<br />
====Kinematic Equations====<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]1.\quad v = v(0) + at[/math]</div><br />
<br />
Acceleration times time equals change in velocity, or acceleration equals change in velocity over time - the definition of acceleration. This works well when no distance is given.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]2.\quad \Delta x = v(0)t + 0.5at^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
Though this should not be part of an algebra based test, change in distance is equal to the integral of velocity, which is exactly what this equation is - the integral of the above velocity equation. Another way to think of it is the average velocity times time, where final velocity is calculated using the equation 1 and average velocity is found from equation 4.<br />
<br />
This works well when no final velocity is given.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]3.\quad \Delta x = vt - 0.5at^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
The exact same thing as the previous equation, but from the opposite end. Instead of using final velocity, initial velocity is found from equation 1 and plugged into equation 4, again to get average velocity. This can be used when no initial velocity is given, but works almost the same way as equation 2.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]4.\quad \Delta x = 0.5(v + v(0))t[/math]</div><br />
<br />
Average velocity times time is equal to distance, which pretty easy to remember. This equation is great when no acceleration is given, but it only works for a constant acceleration.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]5.\quad v^2 = v(0)^2 + 2a\Delta x[/math]</div><br />
<br />
How this equation works is based on kinetic energy. Multiply the equation by 0.5m and this is the result: [math]0.5~mv^2 = 0.5~mv(0)^2 + ma\Delta x[/math]. The last term can be converted into [math]Fd[/math], or work, while the first two represent final and initial kinetic energies. This is just a change in kinetic energy calculation!<br />
<br />
There are 5 variables in kinematics - initial velocity, final velocity, acceleration, time, and distance; these equations make it possible to find any two quantities given the other three.<br />
<br />
====Projectile Motion====<br />
<br />
Projectile motion can be treated as 2D kinematics - 1 equation for x, and 1 equation for y. However, it adds another variable - the angle the projectile is launched at.<br />
<br />
99% of the time, x can be treated with a simple equation: [math]x = v(0)~cos(\theta )~t[/math], and y uses one of the kinematics equations.<br />
<br />
These three, already derived equations can be used to run calculations faster or to double check.<br />
<br />
[math]t = \frac {2v(0)~sin(\theta )}{g}[/math]<br />
<br />
[math]h = \frac {v(0)^2~sin(\theta )^2}{2g}[/math] , where [math]h[/math] is maximum height<br />
<br />
[math]R = \frac {v(0)^2~sin(2\theta )}{g}[/math] , where [math]R[/math] is range of the projectile<br />
<br />
When in doubt, the basic kinematic equations will always work.<br />
<br />
====Example Problems====<br />
<br />
Here are some examples of working through kinematics with the five equations.<br />
<br />
''1. A car moving with constant acceleration covers the distance between two points 50.0 m apart in 5.00 s. Its speed as it passes the second point is 15.0 m/s. What is its speed at the first point?''<br />
<br />
We use equation 4 to find<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]50.0 = 0.5(15.0 + v(0))\cdot 5.00[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]50.0 = 37.5 + 2.50\cdot v(0)[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]v(0) = 5.00~m/s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
''2. What is the car's acceleration from problem 1?''<br />
<br />
As the initial velocity has already been calulated, we use equation 1.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]15.0 = 5.00 + a\cdot 5.00[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]a = 2.00~m/s^2[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
Let's suppose we did not have the initial velocity already caluculated. Equation 3 would be more suitable.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]50.0 = 15.0\cdot 5.00 - 0.5\cdot a\cdot 5.00^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]50.0 = 75.0 - 12.5a[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]a = 2.00~m/s^2[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
As you can see, both equations yield the same answer. With 3 out of the 5 values, there's always 1 direct kinematic equation to use, and 1 more indirect path using 2 kinematic equations, which helps if you happen to forget one.<br />
<br />
''3. A airplane pilot wishes to accelerate from rest (a stationary position) with a constant acceleration of 4g to reach the speed of sound, 331 m/s. How long would the period of acceleration be?''<br />
<br />
We can again use equation 1 to quickly solve the problem.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]331 = 0 + 4\cdot 9.81\cdot t[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]t = 8.44~s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
''4. How far will the pilot in problem 3 travel during the period of acceleration?''<br />
<br />
Using the amount time above, we choose to work with equation 2, getting<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\Delta x = 0 + 0.5\cdot 4\cdot 9.82\cdot 8.44^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\Delta x = 1398~m[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
Of course, there's another equation we could have used if we hadn't already calculated the time , so let's try using equation 5.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]331^2 = 0 + 2\cdot 4\cdot 9.81\cdot \Delta x[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]109600 = 78.48\Delta x[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\Delta x = 1396~m[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
This time the answer is slightly different due to intermediate rounding, but both answers would be accepted and would probably end up the same with proper sig fig usage.<br />
<br />
Now let's work through some 2D kinematics problems, since we've covered all 5 basic kinematics equations.<br />
<br />
''5. A swimmer dives off a 10.00 m high diving board with a horizontal leap. What must her velocity be just before her leap if she is to clear the edge of the pool, which extends 2.00 m beyond the edge of the diving board?''<br />
<br />
Since initial velocity is perfectly horizontal, we can use equation 2 to find the time it takes her to fall without worrying about initial y velocity.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]10.00 = 0 + 0.5\cdot 9.81\cdot t^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]t = 1.428~s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
Now it's just a basic question - what velocity is required to clear 2.00 m in 1.428 seconds? No kinematics needed.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]2.00 = 1.428v[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]v = 1.401~m/s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
''6. A quarterback throws a football with a initial velocity of 15 m/s and angle of 30 degrees. What is the highest point of the football's trajectory?''<br />
<br />
Lets start by running a kinematic equation. We'll use equation 5 to get to the highest point, where velocity must be equal to 0 in the y direction.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]0 = (15~sin(30))^2 - 2\cdot 9.81\cdot h[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]0 = 56.25 - 19.62h[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]h = 2.867~m[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
We could also use one of the projectile motion equations as well.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]h = (15~sin(30))^2/2\cdot 9.81[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]h = 2.867~m[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
You can see where we got the maximum height equation from earlier.<br />
<br />
''7. How long will it take the football from problem 6 to reach a wide receiver of the same height?''<br />
<br />
We can do this equation 2.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\Delta y = 15~sin(30)\cdot t - 0.5\cdot 9.81\cdot t^2[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
Solve where change in y is equal to 0 - this will yield 2 possible points, one where t is equal to 0 and the t we are looking for.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]0 = 7.5t - 4.905t^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]t = 1.529~s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
We can also just use the time equation from the projectile motion equations.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]t = 2\cdot 15\cdot sin(30)/9.81[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]t = 1.529~s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
I originally made a dumb mistake when working through this problem, but I caught it using the second method. I cannot stress how important it is to check both ways whenever possible - don't just rely on the projectile motion equations.<br />
<br />
''8. How far away does the wide receiver need to be to catch the ball?''<br />
<br />
Thankfully, we already have t, which makes this a bit easier. We can now just plug this into a basic x equation.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\Delta x = 15\cdot cos(30)\cdot 1.529[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\Delta x = 19.862~m[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
Given how long this calculation has been, it's a good idea to check with the range equation.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]R = 15^{2}~sin(30\cdot 2)/9.81[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]R = 19.862~m[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
As you can see, it's always possible to rely on those 5 kinematic equations, so if you ever get confused, just go back to those 5 equations.<br />
<br />
===Kinetic Energy===<br />
<br />
====Calculations====<br />
<br />
Even though the section says "kinetic energy", tests are more likely to cover multiple energy calculations.<br />
<br />
Kinetic energy: [math]K = 0.5mv^2[/math]<br />
<br />
Gravitational potential energy: [math]U(g) = mgh[/math]<br />
<br />
Elastic potential energy: [math]U(s) = 0.5kx^2[/math]<br />
<br />
Work: [math]W = Fd[/math]<br />
<br />
Just like [math]F = ma[/math], these equations can be used by themselves or in larger problems. Momentum problems will be tough and could require instant application of multiple of these equations.<br />
<br />
====Momentum====<br />
<br />
Momentum is an important part of all collisions.<br />
<br />
Momentum: [math]p = mv[/math]<br />
<br />
Impulse: [math]J = \Delta p = F\Delta t[/math]<br />
<br />
In any collision, momentum is conserved. This is called the Law of Conservation of Momentum.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\sum p_{(initial)} = \sum p_{(final)}[/math]</div><br />
<br />
=====Inelastic=====<br />
<br />
In a perfectly inelastic collision, two objects combine to form essentially one mass. Kinetic energy is not conserved in such collisions, and instead can be lost to factors such as sound or heat.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]m(1)\cdot v(i) = (m(1) + m(2))\cdot v(f)[/math]</div><br />
<br />
Inelastic collision problems are relatively easy as they only require solving 1 problem.<br />
<br />
=====Elastic=====<br />
<br />
In a perfectly elastic collision, both kinetic energy and momentum are conserved as both objects simply bounce off of each other.<br />
<br />
Thus two equations can be used to solve for the final velocities of both objects:<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]m(1)\cdot v(1,i) + m(2)\cdot v(2,i) = m(1)\cdot v(1,f) + m(2)\cdot v(2,f)[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]m(1)\cdot v(1,i)^2 + m(2)\cdot v(2,i)^2 = m(1)\cdot v(1,f)^2 + m(2)\cdot v(2,f)^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
Note that not all of the 0.5 terms cancel out, but are present in each of the kinetic energies used in the second equation. Both equations should yield a quadratic equation with two solutions - the initial conditions and the more useful final conditions.<br />
<br />
====Example Problems====<br />
<br />
''1. A 70 kg astronaut is installing a new sensor onto the outside of a space station. If he were to throw the 10 kg sensor at a speed of 2.8 m/s, how quickly would he begin to move, and in which direction?''<br />
<br />
We will use Law of Conservation of Momentum, assuming an initial momentum of 0.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]0 = 70\cdot v + 10\cdot 2.8[/math]</div><br />
<div align="center">[math]v = -0.4~m/s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
The negative sign indicates the astronaut is moving in the opposite direction of the sensor.<br />
<br />
''2. A 1000 kg car moving at 15.0 m/s collides with a stopped 6000 kg truck. What is the final velocity of the two vehicles, assuming they lock together after colliding?''<br />
<br />
Since this is an inelastic collision, we only use conservation of momentum.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]1000\cdot 15.0 = (1000+6000)\cdot v[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]15000 = 7000v[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]v = 2.142~m/s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
Pretty easy, right?<br />
<br />
''3. A 1.00 kg electric vehicle veers off course and collides with a 0.20 kg can. If the initial velocity of the vehicle is 5.00 m/s and the can is at rest, what are the final velocities of both objects assuming a perfectly elastic collision?''<br />
<br />
Let's start with conservation of momentum:<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]1.00\cdot 5.00 = 1.00\cdot v(1) + 0.20\cdot v(2)[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]v(1) = 5.00 - 0.20v(2)[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
And now for conservation of kinetic energy, since this is perfectly elastic:<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]1.00\cdot 5.00^2 = 1.00\cdot v(1)^2 + 0.20\cdot v(2)^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]25.0 = (5.00 - 0.20v(2))^2 + 0.20\cdot v(2)^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]25.0 = 25.0 - 2.00v(2) + 0.24v(2)^2[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]0.24v(2) = 2.00[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]v(2) = 8.33~m/s[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]v(1) = 5.00 - 0.20(8.33)[/math]</div><br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]v(1) = 3.33~m/s[/math]</div>.<br />
<br />
And we're done! Feel free to plug the values in for both equations to verify your results. That really is the best way to check these types of problems.<br />
<br />
===Fluid Mechanics===<br />
<br />
====Density====<br />
<br />
Density is a material's mass per unit volume, applicable to any form of matter, not just fluids.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]\rho = \frac {m}{V}[/math]</div><br />
<br />
The specific gravity is the ratio of its density to the density of water at 4.0 degrees C, or [math]1000~kg/m^3[/math]<br />
<br />
====Pascal's Law====<br />
<br />
Pressure is the normal force per unit area.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]p = \frac {dF}{dA} = \frac {F}{A}[/math]</div><br />
<br />
When the weight of a fluid is ignored, pressure is equal throughout the entire volume of the fluid. However, this is not always the case.<br />
<br />
To adjust for the weight of the liquid, we can use this equation: [math]\Delta p = -\rho g\Delta y[/math]<br />
<br />
This can also be expressed as: [math]p = p(0) + \rho gh[/math], where p(0) is the pressure at the surface of the fluid and h is the depth.<br />
<br />
Pascal's Law states that pressure applied to an enclosed fluid is transmitted, undiminished, to every portion of the fluid and the walls of the containing vessel.<br />
<br />
In equation form: [math]p = \frac {F(1)}{A(1)} = \frac {F(2)}{A(2)}[/math]<br />
<br />
This leads to another important equation: [math]F(2) = \frac {F(1)A(2)}{A(1)}[/math]<br />
<br />
Pascal's Law is why the hydraulic lift works, which can be used to multiply force using water. However, the hydraulic lift face the same problem as any simple machine - for every increase in force, there is a proportional decrease in distance and work is kept the same.<br />
<br />
====Buoyancy====<br />
<br />
Archimedes' principle describes buoyancy: When a body is completely or partially immersed in a fluid, the fluid exerts an upward force on the body equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body.<br />
<br />
This explains why objects seem to weigh less in water than in air, and why some things float.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]F(B) = \rho Vg,[/math]</div> where V is the volume of the object that is submerged in the water.<br />
<br />
====Bernoulli's Principle====<br />
<br />
Volume flow rate, or dV/dt, is equal to fluid velocity times area.<br />
<br />
The (fluid) continuity equation states that the volume flow rate is constant for an incompressible fluid.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]A(1)v(1) = A(2)v(2)[/math]</div><br />
<br />
Bernoulli's principle or equation combines all of the factors affecting a flowing incompressible fluid, by applying conservation of energy.<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]p + \rho gy + 0.5\rho v^2 = constant[/math]</div> for any point in the fluid.<br />
<br />
Note that when there is no velocity, and the fluid is instead still, the equation simply becomes the pressure equation from above.<br />
<br />
====Viscosity====<br />
<br />
Viscosity is the internal friction within a fluid, or the resistance to flow. A viscous liquid tends to cling to the solid surface of its container - this is why there is always a thin boundary layer near the outside of a pipe where fluid velocity is almost 0.<br />
<br />
The pressure difference required to maintain a given flow rate is proportional to [math]\frac {L}{R^4}[/math], where L is the length of the pipe and R is the radius. Even a small reduction in radius can drastically increase the required pressure difference.<br />
<br />
Previous equations assume a laminar flow with zero viscosity. However, this is actually impossible as a small amount of viscosity is required to ensure laminar flow. Above a certain critical speed, fluid flow will change from even, laminar patterns to irregular and chaotic turbulence.<br />
<br />
===Air Cushioned Vehicles===<br />
<br />
While these sections may no longer be tested under the 2018 rules, a grasp on the history of the Hovercraft may yield useful insights into the device building process. Many important ideas for hovercraft construction are historically documented, and are most certainly still applicable.<br />
<br />
====History====<br />
<br />
*1716: Emanuel Swedenborg first uses the term "hovering" to describe surface effect vehicles.<br />
*1870s: John Thornycroft develops a patent for an ACV, but lacks the appropriate engines to power his ideas.<br />
*1930s: Charles Fletcher constructs a walled ACV, but is unable to file a patent due to military classification.<br />
*1950s: Christopher Cockerell (credited as the inventor of the hovercraft) develops the concept of an annular ring to support a hovercraft.<br />
*1958: Cecil Latimer-Needham uses rubber to construct a double-walled skirt to make functional hovercraft possible.<br />
*1959: The SR.N1 is first demonstrated to the public, crossing the English Channel with 3 passengers.<br />
*1960s: Saunders-Roe develops larger hovercraft for commercial use.<br />
<br />
In recent history hovercraft have developed into more specialized niches, but have not experienced similar sweeping innovations.<br />
<br />
====World Records====<br />
<br />
*Largest Civil Hovercraft: SR.N4 Mk. III<br />
*Largest Military Hovercraft: Zubr class LCAC<br />
*Largest Developer of Military Hovercraft: Soviet Union<br />
*Fastest English Channel Crossing: 22 minutes, by the Princess Anne SR.N4 Mk. III<br />
*World Hovercraft Speed Record: 137.4 km/h<br />
*Land Hovercraft Speed Record: 90.53 km/h<br />
*Longest Continuous Use: 20 years, by the prototype SR.N6<br />
<br />
==Scoring==<br />
For 2018, the final score (FS) for Hovercraft was scored using the following formula:<br />
<br />
<div align="center">[math]FS = MS_{best run} + TS_{best run} + ES + CS + IB[/math]</div><br />
With each component used in calculating the FS representing the following:<br />
*[math]MS = \frac{\text {# penny rolls used}}{\text {max # penny rolls used by any team in a successful run}}*21[/math] (Mass Score)<br />
*[math]TS = 21 - 0.7*\left\vert \text{runtime}-15 \right\vert[/math] (Time Score)<br />
*[math]ES = \frac {\text{Written Exam score}}{\text{Highest Written Exam score of any team}}*45[/math] (Exam Score)<br />
*[math]CS[/math] (Chart Score) is based on a rubric, which may be found in the rules. It offers a maximum of 10 points, with possible points to be earned for submitting up to 4 different graphs or charts with proper labeling, proper breadth of data, and adequate pictures or diagrams.<br />
*[math]IB[/math] (Impound Bonus) is 3 points if the hovercraft is impounded in a box labeled with the name and number of the team. <br />
<br />
Other adjustments to the score may occur due to violations. If a team fails to record a successful run, their MS and TS are set to 0, but the rest of the parameters are graded normally. For a construction violation, the value for number of penny rolls in calculating the MS must be multiplied by 0.7, and for a competition violation, the total Time Score (TS) will be multiplied by 0.9.<br />

'''Potions and Poisons''' is a [[Division B]] event that is set to rotate in for the [[2018]] season. It was previously a trial event in [[Pennsylvania]] and [[Washington]]. In Potions and Poisons, participants will demonstrate their knowledge on specified substances' chemical properties and effects with a focus on common toxins and poisons. [[Safety Glasses#Category C|Category C goggles]] are required in this event.<br />
<br />
==Topics covered==<br />
Some event topics from the trial event rules (2016) include:<br />
*Chemical bonding<br />
*Mixtures, solutions and compounds and separation of the components within them<br />
*Property changes<br />
*Chemical equations<br />
*Balancing chemical equations<br />
*Poisonous plants and animals<br />
*Common household toxins<br />
*Environmental toxins and effects of their spread<br />
*Effects of dilution<br />
*Lab tasks<br />
<br />
==Chemical bonding==<br />
A chemical bond is an attraction between two atoms that causes them to combine, which can create molecules. The two types of bonding that the current version of the Potions and Poisons rules says to know are ionic and covalent bonding.<br />
===Electronegativity===<br />
[[Image:Electronegativity.jpg|thumb|right|An electronegativity table]] <br />
Electronegativity is a property of elements that is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract electrons. The difference between two atoms' electronegativities decides the type of bond they make. A chart known as an electronegativity chart can be used to find the electronegativities of different elements<br />
===Ionic Bonding===<br />
Ionic bonding is a type of bonding in which one atom takes an electron from another atom. This type of bonding occurs when the difference in electronegativity is high. A common example of this is the compound NaCl, or table salt. The metal Na (sodium) bonds with the halogen gas Cl (chlorine). <br />
<br />
To name a simple ionic compound, use the name of the regular metal, followed by the name of the nonmetal, with the latter using the ending "-ide". For example, NaCl would be written as sodium chloride.<br />
===Covalent Bonding===<br />
Covalent bonding is a type of bonding in which atoms 'share' electrons. This occurs when there is a low difference in electronegativity. Two very common examples are the molecules H<sub>2</sub>; and O<sub>2</sub>;. Because the bonds are formed between two atoms of the same element, the difference in their electronegativities must be zero.<br />
<br />
Covalent bonds can be nonpolar or polar. In polar covalent bonds, the atoms have different electronegativities, and therefore share electrons unequally. The more electronegative atom has a ''partial negative'' charge, while the less electronegative atom has a ''partial positive'' charge. These are denoted with the &#948; symbol (Greek lowercase delta), using &#948;- for partial negative charge and &#948;+ for partial positive charge.<br />
<br />
==Chemical Equations==<br />
Chemical reactions are written out as chemical equations. A chemical equation has two parts: reactants and products. The atoms in the reactants are rearranged to form the products.<br />
<br />
Chemical equations are written left-to-right with the products following the reactants, and an arrow sign (which is read as "yields") pointing from the reactants to the products. Each individual reactant/molecule is represented with a plus sign (+).<br />
The following equation is an example of a chemical equation, with the reactants on the left and the product on the right.<br />
<br />
[math]2H_2 + O_2 \rightarrow 2H_2O[/math]<br />
<br />
If there are multiple instances of a molecule, the number of molecules is written as a coefficient. For example, the product in the above equation is water, or H&#8322;O. There are ''two'' water molecules present, which is written as 2H&#8322;O.<br />
<br />
===Balancing Chemical Equations===<br />
In a chemical reaction, the quantity of each element cannot change (If there are ''n'' atoms of element A in the reactants, there must be ''n'' atoms in the product). A chemical equation must have equal quantities of each element on either side of the arrow. As mentioned above, adding coefficients to molecules can show that there are those many molecules present. However, if an equation is given without coefficients, chances are that there is an inequality on either side.<br />
Consider the example given above; however this time it is without coefficients:<br />
<br />
[math]H_2 + O_2 \rightarrow H_2O[/math]<br />
<br />
If you count the number of each element on either side of the equation, you will get the following:<br />
*Hydrogen on left: 2<br />
*Oxygen on left: 2<br />
*Hydrogen on right: 2<br />
*Oxygen on right: 1<br />
This cannot be a balanced equation, because the number of atoms is unequal. To fix this issue, it is necessary to ''balance'' the chemical equation.<br />
<br />
To balance a chemical equation, add coefficients to make the number of atoms of each element equal. For example, take again the previous equation:<br />
<br />
[math]H_2 + O_2 \rightarrow H_2O[/math]<br />
<br />
Notice that there is only one type of molecule as the product, meaning that it is the only molecule that a coefficient can be added to. A basic way to find the proper coefficient is to find a ratio between the two elements on one side and apply that to the other side. In this example, there are two times as many hydrogens as oxygens. In addition, all coefficients must be whole numbers. Therefore, the lowest coefficients would be a two in front of the hydrogen gas (on the left) and a two in front of the water. <br />
This gives us a balanced equation of:<br />
<br />
[math]2H_2 + O_2 \rightarrow 2H_2O[/math]<br />
<br />
==Poisonous Plants and Animals==<br />
{{Incomplete|section}}<br />
The poisonous plants and animals listed in the [[2018]] rules are:<br />
*Poison ivy (''Toxicodendron radicans'')<br />
*Poison oak (''Toxicodendron diversilobum'')<br />
*Death-cap mushroom (''Amanita phalloides'')<br />
*Jimson weed (''Datura sp.'')<br />
*Mayapple (''Podophyllum peltatum'')<br />
*Ongaonga (''Urtica ferox'')<br />
*Cane toad (''Rhinella marina'')<br />
*Pacific newt (''Taricha sp.'')<br />
*Brown Recluse Spider (''Locosceles recluse'')<br />
*Fattail scorpion (''Androctonus australis'')<br />
<br />
<br />
===Poison Ivy (''Toxicodendron radicans'')===<br />
<br />
Poison ivy grows most regions of the US, typically in woods, fields, and along roadsides, especially where vegetation is disturbed. It can be identified by its three thin, pointy, and shiny leaves. The leaf color depends on the season. In the spring, the leaves are reddish; in the summer, green; in the fall, orange to bronze. <br />
<br />
Upon contact with the oil from poison ivy, an allergic reaction happens. Touching the plant itself is not the only way to contact the oil; touching gardening equipment or pets that have contacted the ivy can also spread the oil. Symptoms of a reaction include itching, redness, swelling, and blisters. It is important to note that the blisters are NOT contagious.<br />
<br />
===Poison Oak (''Toxicodendron diversilobum'')===<br />
<br />
===Death-Cap Mushroom (''Amanita phalloides'')===<br />
<br />
===Jimson Weed (''Datura sp.'')===<br />
<br />
===Mayapple (''Podophyllum peltatum'')===<br />
<br />
===Ongaonga (''Urtica ferox'')===<br />
<br />
===Cane Toad (''Rhinella marina'')===<br />
<br />
Cane toads are native to South and Central America. They are night foragers and mainly prey on insects and snails. They have been introduced to various places such as Australia to control insect populations, but for the most part, become an invasive species. Adult cane toads have toxins on glands on their upper surface, especially near the shoulders, and exude bufotoxin, which acts on the heart and central nervous system (CNS), when provoked.<br />
<br />
===Pacific Newt (''Taricha sp.'')===<br />
<br />
===Brown Recluse Spider (''Locosceles recluse'')===<br />
<br />
===Fattail Scorpion (''Androctonus australis'')===<br />
<br />
===Past Plants and Animals===<br />
Plants and animals that have been included in past years are listed below.<br />
<br />
{{SpoilerBoxBegin}}'''2016-2017 (Trial Rules)'''{{SpoilerBoxContent}}<br />
[[Image:manowar.jpg|thumb|right|An common misconception is to believe that the Portuguese man o' war (a hydrozoan) is a jellyfish.]] <br />
'''Wolfsbane (''Aconitum sp.'')'''<br />
<br />
Wolfsbane is also known as Aconite or Monkshood. It is an herbaceous, perennial plant that grows well in mountain meadows. The flowers are large and usually blue, purple, white, yellow, or pink. Although poisonous, some species are used for ornamental purposes. Signs of poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tingling, and numbness. If a fatal dose is taken, death occurs within 2-6 hours. Poisoning can also occur just by touching the leaves without gloves, because the toxin aconitine is absorbed easily through the skin.<br />
<br />
'''Jack in the Pulpit (''Arum maculatum'')'''<br />
<br />
Jack in the Pulpit, also known as Indian turnip, is found in deciduous woods and floodplains. The flower is green and maroon striped, and the seed is bright red. The leaves and fruit contain calcium oxalate (CaC<sub>2</sub>O<sub>4</sub>) which is irritating to the skin, so gloves should be worn when handling this plant. Jack in the Pulpit is also irritating when ingested raw, and contact with the roots can cause skin blisters. However, the roots can be safely eaten when cooked.<br />
<br />
'''Lily of the Valley (''Convallaria majalis'')'''<br />
<br />
Lily of the Valley is an herbaceous perennial plant that spreads through underground rhizomes. It flowers in late Spring, and the flowers consist of 6 white tepals (outer parts of the flower). The flowers have a sweet scent. The fruit is a small reddish berry. All parts of the plant, including flowers and berries, are poisonous. Any amount ingested can cause abdominal pain, vomiting, and blurred vision. Many cardiac glycosides, medications that increase heart output while decreasing contraction rate, are derived from this plant.<br />
<br />
'''Poison Sumac (''Toxicodendron vernix'')'''<br />
<br />
Poison Sumac is a small shrub/tree that grows in wet clay soils such as swamps and peat bogs. It has reddish tinted leaves and greenish flowers. All parts of it contain the resin '''urushiol''', which causes skin and mucous membrane irritation. Symptoms on the skin can include swelling, inflammation, and oozing. Poison Sumac can be especially dangerous when burned, because it can lead to pulmonary edema. The urushiol contained in this plant is similar to that contained in Poison Ivy, but the Poison Sumac urushiol tends to be more toxic.<br />
<br />
'''Poison Dart Frog (''Dendrobates sp.'')'''<br />
<br />
'''Portuguese Man o' War (''Physalia physalis'')'''<br />
{{SpoilerBoxEnd}}<br />
<br />
==Common Household Toxins==<br />
The trial rules of Potions and Poisons mention the following toxic household chemicals:<br />
*Ammonia<br />
*Hydrogen peroxide<br />
*Rubbing alcohol<br />
*Bleach<br />
*Epsom salts<br />
*Vinegar<br />
*Nutritional supplements containing calcium and iron<br />
===Ammonia===<br />
The compound ammonia itself is a colorless gas with the formula NH<sub>3</sub>. However, it is most commonly seen in households as a cleaner, where the gas is dissolved into water. It is most dangerous when mixed with bleach, which causes the release of toxic fumes, which can cause serious respiratory damage, in addition to potential chemical burns, headaches, nausea, or vomiting.<br />
<br />
===Hydrogen peroxide===<br />
[[Image:hydrogenperoxide.png|thumb|right|A typical "brown bottle" of hydrogen peroxide]] <br />
Hydrogen peroxide is a colorless liquid. It's compound name is H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2</sub>. It is commonly used as a disinfectant, either for surfaces or for wounds. Because the concentration of most hydrogen peroxide used in households (usually in brown bottles) is low, at about 3%, ingestion of small amounts of hydrogen peroxide (diluted) does not usually cause any significant damage, apart from potential stomach irritation. However, ingesting a large quantity can cause more serious stomach irritation and may even cause chemical burns.<br />
<br />
Furthermore, ingestion of a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide can cause much more serious symptoms, and death in some cases.<br />
<br />
===Rubbing Alcohol===<br />
Rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol) is an alcohol with the formula C<sub>3</sub>H<sub>8</sub>O. It is most often used as a disinfectant. When ingested, it is metabolized into acetone. This can cause dizziness, headaches, vomiting, or even coma. <br />
<br />
===Bleach===<br />
Bleach is a solution of the chemical compound sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) in water. It is a strong base, with a pH of 12.6. It is most often used as a household cleaner. As mentioned above, mixing bleach with ammonia releases dangerous fumes. Exposure to bleach on its own can cause irritation in the eyes, mouth, skin, and lungs, and can cause burns.<br />
<br />
===Epsom Salts===<br />
Epsom salts (Magnesium sulfate) are salts with the equation MgSO<sub>4</sub>. They have many uses, including uses as bath salts, as laxatives, face cleansers, cleaners, and as fertilizer. However, ingesting high levels of these salts can cause magnesium overdose, which can lead to slowed heartbeat, lowered blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, and coma or death in serious cases.<br />
<br />
===Vinegar===<br />
Vinegar is an extremely common household chemical. It is an acidic liquid, a mixture of acetic acid (CH<sub>3</sub>COOH) and water. It is used in cooking, cleaning, and medicine. However, concentrations of acetic acid higher than 10% can cause skin damage/corrosion.<br />
<br />

==Environmental Toxins==<br />

===Iron===<br />
<br />
===Arsenic===<br />

===Copper===<br />
<br />
==Dilution==<br />
Dilution is simply the addition of a solvent without adding any solute.<br />
This is shown in the equation:<br />
<br />
[math]C_1 \times V_1 = C_2 \times V_2[/math]<br />
<br />
where<br />
*C<sub>1</sub> = the initial concentration of the solute<br />
*V<sub>1</sub> = the initial volume of the solution<br />
*C<sub>2</sub> = the final concentration of the solute<br />
*V<sub>2</sub> = the final volume of the solution<br />
<br />
For example, if a solution has a 10% concentration of salt in one liter of water, adding another liter of water would halve the concentration of the salt, to 5%.<br />
This example can be shown mathematically using the above equation, where:<br />
*C<sub>1</sub> = 10%<br />
*V<sub>1</sub> = 1 L<br />
*C<sub>2</sub> = 5%<br />
*V<sub>2</sub> = 2 L<br />
<br />
[math]10\% \times 1 L = 5\% \times 2L[/math]<br />
<br />
[math]0.1 \times 1 L = 0.05 \times 2L[/math]<br />
<br />
[math]0.1 L = 0.1 L[/math]<br />
==Lab Tasks==<br />
In addition to completing a written test, Potions and Poisons competitors must complete at least one lab task, according to the trial rules.<br />
These lab tasks may include the following:<br />
*Chromatography<br />
*Mixture of Reagents<br />
*Separation of a mixture<br />
*Serial dilutions<br />
*Determining pH<br />
*Conductivity testing<br />
*Observations from reagent mixing (color change, precipitate formation, etc.)<br />
*Distinguishing between physical and chemical changes<br />

<div>Missouri is a very competitive state, having many teams. It has sent two teams from each division to nationals since 1989, where they usually do well, scoring as high as third place overall.<br />

==History==<br />
<br />
Missouri has sent two teams to nationals from both divisions for several years. Missouri tend to fare strongly at the national tournament, often netting top-20 finishes.<br />
<br />
In 2010, Missouri talked about adjusting districts so that 95% of teams were within 75 minutes of their regional competition. This plan was put on hold, but will be brought back up in 2011. Science Olympians in Missouri should pay attention to these potential developments for next year. Here are the current districts in Missouri:<br />
