Equal and Opposite Thrust in Aircraft: You're a Pushover!
7th - 9th CCSS: Designed
It's the law—every action requires a reaction, no matter how small. Pupils experience two demonstrations of Newton's third law of motion as it relates to thrust in the 10th segment of a 22-part unit on flight. Using their mathematical...
How Do Rockets Work?
4 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Explore the chemistry of a rocket launch. An episode of the ACS Reactions playlist explains how propellant creates the thrust necessary to launch a rocket. The instructor considers both solid and liquid propellants to make a well-rounded...
Designing an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV): Concepts in Lift, Drag, Thrust, Energy, Power, Mass, and Buoyancy
9th - 12th
Engineer an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to study concepts of physics. Using household materials, collaborative groups design and build an AUV and then test Newton's Laws of Motion as they apply them in underwater environments...
Adapatations for Bird Flight - Inspiration for Aeronautical Engineering
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
It's a bird, it's a ... device made to mimic birds. The eighth installment of a nine-part module has pupils read various articles to learn about bird flight. They consider the implications for aeronautical engineering.
