There is an airfoil with a 3ft chord length for a small remote
controlled aircraft. The lift coefficient is C = 0.59 and the
pitching moment coefficient at a quarter chord length is
C_{m,c/4} = -0.032 for a landing spped of 45 ft/s at
sea-level std conditions

a) Calculate the lift per unit span (in lbf/ft)

b) Calculate the moment about the quarter chord position per unit span

c) Calculate the moment about the leading edge per unit span

d) If the weight of this small aircraft is 76 lb, what is the wing span required

When a sprinter is attempting to perform an all-out sprint as seen in the panel above, in order to maximize their linear velocity they will flex the knee more during the initial portion of the swing phase than the knee would naturally flex during this phase. This alters the moment of inertia of the leg in a way that ultimately leads to increased linear velocity of the foot at the instant before foot strike. Describe the steps in this process. 1) Define moment of inertia, and describe how it changes as the knee goes through exaggerated flexion during the swing phase. 2) Describe what effect this change has on the angular velocity of the leg about the hip through the swing phase. 3) How is the angular impulse altered about the hip, and what relationship does this have to the change in angular velocity?

A U- tube manometer is used to measure the pressure of oil of specific gravity 0.85 flowing in a pipe line. It is left end is connected to the pipe and right –limb id open to the atmosphere. The center of the pipe is 100 mm below the level of mercury (specific gravity =13.6) the right limb .if the difference of mercury level in the two limbs is 160 mm. determine the absolute pressure of the oil in the pipe.

- A round composite bar is used to conduct heat. It is held at
600K at one end and 1000K at the other end but all other surfaces
are insulated. The two end pieces of the bar are Stainless Steel
(AISI304), and the middle piece is Copper. The length of each piece
of the bar is 0.2m (total length is 0.6m) and the diameter is
0.07m. Generate an x-y plot of the temperature distribution along
the
**center axis**of the bar (plot T vs x). Select your own values for T_{1}and T_{2.}Assume zero contact resistance between the sections. - Solve this problem by hand and provide a plot of the temperature distribution for the composite bar. Include your hand calculations in your deliverable. You can use equation editor or include a photo of your paper if your handwriting is tidy and the picture is properly cropped

Solid desiccant air dehumidifier systems are widely used to
supply dry air for many industrial processes. As humid atmospheric
air flows through the system, the water vapor in the air is
adsorbed by the desiccant material, resulting in dry air leaving
the system. Inlet air velocity and tekperature are observed as
predominant parameters that influence the outlet conditions of the
air. Consider a cylindrical air channel with a length of 1 meter
and an inner diameter of 20 mm, as a representative of a
dehumidifier system. The wall of the channel is made of silica
powder material with a thickness of 0.2 mm. Air enters the channel
at T_{i} = 30°C and 10 m/s. Heated air is forced to flow
over the entire channel so that it could provide a constant inner
surface temperature, T_{s,i} of 60°C. Determine,

i. the exit air temperature of the channel, T_{e,}
^{o}C

ii. the rate of heat transfer, and

iii. the outer surface temperature of the channel,
T_{s,o,} ^{o}C.

Evaluate the air properties at a bulk mean temperature of 40°C

Crude oil of specific gravity (0.75) is flowing through a pipe.
The pipe has a diameter of 100 mm and 50 mm at the sections 1 and 2
respectively. The velocity of crude oil at the section 1 is 550
cm/s. The section 1 is 3000 mm and section 2 is 2000 mm
above the datum. If the pressure at the section 1 is 0.2

Task 1

Company 1 is new into distillation & separation has approached
CD19 for support on the following problem: -

**(a)** They wish to separate a 50-gram sample of a
new liquid compound, by heating it in a reactor to convert it from
liquid to gas. The final pressure of the gas should be 775 mmHg at
24oC. They are struggling to find the volume of the reactor. Can
you help? What volume of the reactor will be required to achieve
the stated requirements?

**(b)** Another placement student suggests that by
chilling the gas by 15oK will reduce the size of the reactor. Is
the second engineer correct and by how much would the volume
change?

**(c)** The temperature and pressure effects on a
liquid can be described by the kinetic molecular theory. The
customer would like you to explain this in a short and concise
manner.

You are expected to draw a diagram (labeled) of the relationship
between temperature and pressure for a liquid that is heated to
form an ideal gas. Relative phase compositions should also be
labeled.

**Data**
