    Supersonic Research Paper

    barrier is broken, then a lot changes and the aircraft needs to be as streamlined to do that. To make an engine more streamlined it becomes smaller and more part of the wing of the plane. The engine might be smaller but it has to move more air than a subsonic engine which means the rate at which the engine rotates will be higher, increasing the noise. With hearing protection this might not be a huge deal, but for people who live close to an airport and have to listen to lift off and landing might be cause for complaint. Another problem with noise is a sonic boom. When a supersonic jet exceeds 767 miles per hour they create a sonic boom which is exactly what it sounds like a very loud boom. Even with the plane fly over 35,000 feet above us this boom is extremely loud. The boom from the sonic boom is not the only problem as the plane exceeds the sound barrier. When the sound barrier is broken many things happen, there is the boom that was just talked about, a shock wave is created, temperature around the plane increases, and the most well know trait a vapor cloud appears around the aircraft. Temperature is an issue for supersonic travel because the heat around the plane is well over the boiling temperature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Normal subsonic planes use aluminum as the material for the outside of the plane. Aluminum is lightweight, strong, and relatively inexpensive. Aluminum however, does not do well against heat, therefore manufacturers have to use materials…

    This person is about the age of 13 or 14. His name is Titus. He is just another student to some, but to others he is a friend. He has a short, but very fat body.

This molecule was discovered in 1993 by Cliff Tabin’s laboratory at Harvard by using fruit flies. Fruit flies have a gene that controls which side grows into what shape called a hedgehog. With the shape of the gene from the fruit flies, the lab began to search for the same or similar gene in chickens. The chicken version of…

    I am a proud Food Network addict. And lately, I have developed quite a fondness for the reality competition, "Chopped." On this show, four "amateur" chefs compete for $10,000. They are provided with a motley collection of specific ingredients, and are charged with creating an appetizer, entrée, and a dessert; one contestant is eliminated after each course. The chefs are provided all the supplies and ingredients they need to prepare their dishes, while the judges look on. The clock winds down,…

    I can hear the voice of the sergeant behind me telling me “go faster, take longer strides!”, as I am trying to catch up to my platoon. As I slowly start to fall behind from my platoon. I feel like an outsider, and I began to question why am I even here? I try going faster, and taking longer strides, but they seem more far away with each step. Now I feel like I don’t belong there anymore, and I fade away recalling the first time I stepped a foot in Virginia Military Institute. Going to VMI for…
