# Diagnosis Phase Essay

Question 2.

Diagnosis Phase: When I first read the question, it reminded me of my multivariable calculus first class session where my professor used an example of a plane being landed in windy weather, to teach us a concept of vectors. Initially, I began to picture the scenario of a plane flying under consideration of wind being involved instead of looking at the numbers. Afterward, I drew the free body diagram of how the problem looked as using numbers and direction. Since the problem stated that the wind approached west of north, I merely drew a line going to the west of north direction within the given angle. Next, I pulled another line representing the speed of a plane, but I made my first error by facing the plane direction

I start working on adding few more items such as forces with direction into a given free diagram. Furthermore, in the course, I had learned to oversee two equations (x-axis and y-axis) and separate two equations. Afterward, the first question asks to solve for the max force of static friction that must be encountered before block initially moves. Therefore, I knew I must use the max friction formula which is coefficient of static friction times normal force. On the other hand, I have solved for normal force using y-axis equation, but instead, I used an inclined normal force equation to explain for max, static friction. At this instant, time wasn’t friendly with me which must have been the reason why I couldn’t see this mistake in the first place. For the second question, the equation was correct which I can proudly admit so but the defection was among distribution factor. As a calculus three student, I am shamed to witness this simple multiplication distribution error which entirely changed the perfection toward the right
