Aerospace Need help FASTTTT

  1. Mar 25, 2009 #1
    I have a huge problem. I was given this problem to work, and it is several years above my education thus far. I'm only a first year at Georgia Tech and this is from a graduating senior. A lot is on the line. It's actually a bet and I could lose a few hundred if I can't come up with the right answer and work to show how I arrived at it... can anyone help?

    This is not a high level problem.

    Its also in the wrong forum, there is a forum for homework/problems.

    Its simple maths, simple assumptions and a simple plot graph.

    Also, where is your attempt at this?

    As a hint, i would say look at the knowns and unknowns, look at what can be assumed, and then it might hit you what to do to plot the graph.

    I would further suggest that it's kind of stupid to make a bet about something like this unless you have advanced knowledge. You can't count on other people to bail you out.

    Exactly, where's our cut if we help you.

    "cannot access online solutions"
    "work must be individual"

    ... need I say more?

    And in what way does asking on-line professionals for a solution conform to those guidelines? You're on your own, Moraalg.
    By the bye, Redargon, do you have inside info about the question? OP didn't mention those rules.

    Those rules are written in the picture the OP posted.

    Thanks, Mech. I hadn't bothered to read the whole thing.

    If this isnt homework i'll eat my hat.

    I think it'll go well lightly fried in garlic.
