    Python script to find drag force on a 2D object given differential pressure vectors

    I am in need of a python program to calculate the drag force on a 2D object, given differential pressure acting on the object-- this will have to be calculated either manually or (hopefully) by the code. I have the exact location of each pressure vector via a .dat file, and would like to know...

    How to find wall angles of a CD nozzle?

    I'm designing a cd nozzle type restrictor for an engine air intake, to obtain best performance. Im having difficulty finding wall angles for the same, i only have inlet conditions (pressure,velo,etc), diameter of inlet ,throat and outlet. The length shall be determined by the angles itself and...

    Find tension in a string with attached body doing UCM

    Problem A rock with mass 1.5 kg is being whirled in a horizontal circle on a string 0.8m long. The speed of the rock is a constant 5m/s. Find the magnitude and the direction of the tension in the string. There seems to be too many unknowns here to solve??(Sadsmile) Answer 49N @ 17...

    Find the opening size

    A yellow He-Ne laser with λ = 594 nm is lighting on a circular opening. There's a screen 5.0 m away with a bending pattern. The fifth dark ring (starting from centrum) has the diameter 10.5 cm. Determine the size of the circular opening. I think that I might need to use the formula D*sin(x)...

    Trying to find the displacement

    Hi, I'm hoping to get some clarification on this. I'd like to see if I did it right, and if not then I'd really like to know what I did wrong. A car is traveling at 20.83m/s , it takes 3.4s to stop, what is the displacement? d=1/2(V1+V2)t = 1/2(20.83m/s+0m/s)(3.4) = 1/2(70.83) =...

    How to find the direction of the velocity of a man swimming across a river

    I am confused on the direction of the velocity of a man with respect to the river and with respect to the ground. Here is the question below: Question: A man can swim in still water at a speed of 3 km/h. He wants to cross a river that flows at 2 km/h and reach the point directly opposite to...

    Find the mass and kinetic energy of an ion (Given magnetic field, ion path radius)

    In a mass spectrometer, a doubly charged ion having a particular velocity is selected by using a magnetic field of 100mT perpendicular to an electric field of 1.0 KV/m. This same magnetic field is then used to deflect the ion in a circular path with a radius of 15 mm. Find the mass and kinetic...

    How to find tension given pulse equation?

    A transverse pulse is propagating on a 2.0 m long string of mass 50 g. The pulse is described by the equation: y(x,t)=pi/(pi+(3x/2+pi(t))^2) , with x and y in meters, and t in seconds. Find the tension in the string.

    Forces and Tension- given coefficient of friction to find speed?

    Okay, I've posted a lot, but this is the lat problem I'm having an issue with. Here I go! i) I have absolutely no idea. I can't even attempt because I honestly don't know what to do or where to start. How the heck am I supposed to find speed with what's given? It's not like I have time or...

    Find the streamlines of the velocity field

    Hello!! I have to find the streamlines of the following velocity fields: 1. u=x(1+2t), v=y 2. u=xy, v=0 I have done the following: 1. dx/u=dy/v => dx/(x(1+2t))=dy/y => ln(x)/(1+2t)=ln(y)+c => y=Ce^(ln(x)/(1+2t)) => y=Cx^(1/(1+2t)) Is this correct?? 2. dx/u=dy/v \Rightarrow...
