Some Physics for High School Math Students

Some Physics for High School Math Students

A unit that discusses some physics: the lever, density, buoyancy, the continuity equation, dynamic similarity, the difference between units and dimensions, the Reynolds number, the Froude number, and the Mach number. Some history of model testing, of towing tanks, of "The Great Eastern," of "Turbinia," and cavitation is touched on. The unit is an opportunity for students to see uses of mathematics by reading about engineering projects and their solutions.
