Lab HW3

This Week in Section:

Students will meet in the Design Studio where they will be introduced to the robot contest and robot kits. Afterwards they will have time fabricate their clocks and work on homework assignments.

Required Reading

  • 3D Spatial Visualization - Sorby (on TritonED)
Section Preparation
  • Bring your clock kits to fabricate your clock in section.
  • Robot teams will be randomly created and announced next week. But if there is someone you do not want to work with, let your tutor know by sending an email to your tutor by this lab. 
Assignments Due in Section
  • Plastic pendulum and escapement wheel cutouts
  • Sketching Assignment
    • You may want to use the 2D and 3D sketch templates under a blank piece of paper (do not write on the templates).
  • 3D Visualization Assignment (The answers can be turned in on a separate piece of paper)
  • Clock Intermediate Timing Analysis:
    • Theoretical point mass approximation. See Natural Frequency of a Point Mass
    • Intermediate verification. Measure the mass and estimate the center of mass of your pendulum.
    • Reminder: Next week the completed clock report is due!
