Engineer in the classroom

March 25, 2015

We are calculating how long it would take to empty the water from the bucket to simulate emptying an oil well.  There were two different cups, a large one that could be used once a month, and a small one that could be used four times a month.

The problem was solved using volume calculations, and rate calculations

Later we designed a better scoop that maximizes the volume and minimizes the surface area.
