  • Re-read any of Chanson's (2004) Chapter 2 that was unclear to you.
  • Read the entirety of Chapter 4 of Dingman (2008). We will cover and discuss almost all of the Chapter.
  • Bring some paper, a calculator, and your book to lab/discussion.
  • You don't need to vote for lecture topics for this assignment as we will cover most everything.
In lecture, I will cover Basic Mathematical Concepts (§ 4.1) & Kinematics & Dynamics (§ 4.2). The seven of you enrolled for credit will each cover one of the following sections and explain it to the rest of us for the remainder of lecture and through the lab period:
  1. Equations Based on Conservation of Mass (§ 4.3)
  2. Equations Based on Conservation of Momentum (§ 4.4)
  3. Equations Based on Conservation of Energy (§ 4.5)
  4. Equations Based on Diffusion (§ 4.6)
  5. Force-Balance & Conductance Equations (§ 4.7)
  6. Equations of Definition & (§ 4.8.1) & Heuristic Equations (§ 4.8.4)
  7. Empirical Equations (§ 4.8.3) 
To prepare your mini-lecture, please plan on the following:
  • For the section you are assigned, please prepare either some slides (email me or bring on USB drive) or a handout (hand-written is fine; print 12 copies) to lead class in the explanation and/or derivation of the equations. Use diagrams, figures and examples as appropriate
  • You will be allotted roughly 15 minutes
  • Although everyone will have read each section, present your part assuming that they either did not read, or did not understand it
  • If applicable, please also contrast how Chanson (2004) in Chapter 2 versus Dingman (2008) in Chapter 4 have explained the same topic (i.e. § 4.3, § 4.4, § 4.5)
