“Theory: Drag for objects moving in a fluid (air is a fluid) has been determined to be D=1/2CpAv^2 where D is the drag force, C is the drag coefficient, p is the density of the fluid, and A is the surface of the body exposed to the fluid. Do your results support this relationship? Explain.”
This equation does support the relationship of moving objects through a fluid, in this lab; air is the fluid being taken into account. The equation itself has many constants within it. The constants stay the same and isn’t what is varying. More or less they become less significant this would be, p, the density of air, C, the drag coefficient, due to the drag isn’t changing since the ...view middle of the document...
She is the main rock of our group. Although the rest of the group may be discussing a possible idea and Angie is sitting in silence with that certain look on her face, I can tell she is really trying to process what we are saying and how to explain, describe, or better the discussion. She really was able to help me when I finally made the connection by myself, since I was having trouble explaining it and she put it in a way that I could understand.
I would give Angie a 10
The first couple of days, Allie was sort of “out of it” the way that I was. It was nice that someone was on the same page as I was, since we were both confused. Yet, on Wednesday Allie seemed to go into more of a panic mode. Allie was stressing out over the lab and the entire class in general. It definitely put a damper on the group and just added more stress to which we didn’t need in such a critical time. I just wish she would have participated and discussed with a less social aspect of the group and more critical thinking. Allie contributed in the group wonderfully with the first lab, but I didn’t see that same cooperation in this one.
I would give Allie a 6
Pat seemed to pick up his A game a bit more this time around. Last lab...
