Measuring wind speed by it's ability to lift objects

Postby pilot36 » Mon Jan 26, 2004 1:54 pm

I'm looking for references to do the initial research paper (I just found out it's due tomorrow!!)

Most of what I've found is about airplanes. However, I'm thinking of for an experiment where objects (maybe flat pieces of cardboard of various sizes and weights) are blown by a fan.

Any thoughts?

A research paper generally takes weeks to research and write and involves looking up things in books. I'm not sure how you can do this in such a short time. I have no idea what books are available to you in your local public library and school library, so I can't really help you much. Internet sites can work, especially if they are ".edu" but remember that anyone can post anything they want on the internet regardless of its accuracy (books are reviewed and published by reputable companies).

If you still want more help/more specific help, please respond in this thread.
