* 1. Please think how you learned this section. What did you find to be helpful? Please tick all that apply.

* 2. Please list the top 5 concepts that you learned in this module.For example, your 4th choice may be: "That lift varies with the density, lift coeffient, area, and square of speed."

* 3. What concepts pose(d) difficulties for you? Please discuss, and also how you solved the difficulty if you did.

* 4. Explain as to a 6th grader (I presume that people learn about "acceleration" by then, at least as it applies to skateboards?) how aerodynamic lift is generated.

* 5. Explain as to a 4th grader (or professor) why airplanes have a "speed for minimum drag" other than zero.

* 6. Explain as to a 4th grader, why airfoils are shaped the way they are (including camber, rounded leading edge, thickness)

* 7. Why do airplane industry engineers express wind tunnel operating conditions as "q" and what are the units for "q"?

* 8. What the units for drag? Why do airplane industry engineers talk about drag in square feet?
