|Beginner's Guide to Aerodynamics|
This site was prepared at NASA Glenn Research Center. At this Web site you can study aerodynamics at your own pace and to your own level of interest. Some of the topics included are: Newton's basic equations of motion; the motion of a free falling object, the three forces (lift, drag, and weight) that act on a glider; and finally, the four forces that act on a powered airplane. There are several pages devoted to basic gas properties and how those properties change through the atmosphere.
|Beginner's Guide to Model Rockets|
This site was prepared at NASA Glenn by the Learning Technologies Project (LTP) to provide background information on model rockets as teaching aids for secondary math and science teachers. The Beginner's Guide to Model Rockets will show you the basic math and physics that govern the design and flight of model rockets. Unlike full size rockets, the flight of a model rocket involves aerodynamics, much like an airliner or a curveball thrown by a big league baseball pitcher.
|Beginner's Guide to Propulsion|
This site was prepared at NASA Glenn by the Learning Technologies Project (LTP) to provide background information on basic propulsion for secondary math and science teachers. The pages were originally prepared as teaching aids to support EngineSim, an interactive educational computer program that allows students to design and test jet engines on a personal computer.
