KS3 Physics and Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Jet car. Stress Testing the Fin, Materials

KS3 Physics and Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Jet car. Stress Testing the Fin, Materials

A 2 min video clip explaining how we test the fin of a 1000mph car. BLOODHOUND’s giant tail fin is a key part of the car. It keeps it running straight and true. At 1,000mph it will see incredible loads, so the engineers need to monitor the aluminium structure using strain gauges… The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects. Over the life of this project we’ve been able to inspire over 2 million young people!

Finding the Equations of Trig Functions from their graphs

Finding the Equations of Trig Functions from their graphs

This allows students to practice finding the equation of trigonometric functions from the given graphs. The worksheet starts with equations of the form y = af(bx) and builds up to the general case y = af(b(x-c) + d. The first sheet's graphs are in degrees and are a mixture of sine and cosine. The second sheet's graphs are a mixture of trig graphs in radians and transformations of y = e^x and y = x^2. Especially useful for IB standard Level - which often asks this kind of question.
