  1. 1-128-S-RocketFlight

    04 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer an opportunity to build a mathematical model using Newton's Second Law of Motion and a Free Body Diagram to analyze the forces acting on the rocket of changing mass in its upward flight under power and then without power followed by its fall to earth.

  2. 3-019-S-ShuttlecockFall

    30 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We are given data on the time and position of a shuttlecock as it falls to the ground from a set height. We attempt to model the falling object and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and...

    30 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We are given data on the time and position of a whiffle ball as it falls to the ground. We attempt to model the falling ball and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and apply it to our models.
