What Speed Increase do Aerofoils Give to an F1 Car?
This assignment introduces concepts such as centripetal force, angular acceleration, coefficient of friction, unit conversion, moments of forces, scaling and dimensioning, and problem solving. The objective of this work will be to learn how to analyse and present information in a meaningful way. The problem to be solved is “What speed improvement do aerofoils give to an F1 car”. You are asked to calculate the maximum speed with and also without aerofoils. To help solve this task, you will use Foilsim software.
