  1. 3-043-S-BallisticModeling-SpongeDart

    20 Nov 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Jean Marie Linhart, Peter Howard

    The goal of this project is for students to develop, analyze, and compare three different models for the flight of a sponge dart moving under the influences of gravity and air resistance. The first two models are based respectively on the common simplifying assumptions of no air resistance and...

    11 Mar 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    Data on free falling 2, 4, 6, and 8 stacked coffee filters is offered for analysis. Students first form a model using resistance terms. Parameters need to be estimated and models compared.
