New Updated ASTB Study Guides, Gouges, and Links

#31
Aerodynamics4Students by University of Sydney https://sites.google.com/site/aerodynamics4students/table-of-contents
lots of good links and technical derivations of fluid mechanics and aerodynamics concepts. there are also videos in some chapters of aerodynamic phenomena such as laminar flow off of trucks, cars, deltas and such...
This link can be useful as an engineer. Just looking over the web page, it seems like a review of what aerospace engineering has covered the past three semesters. However, this information is much more detailed than what the ASTB covers. The ASTB ask very basic theory questions such as: lift is due to a pressure difference between the top and bottom of the wing. There are very few technical theories covered on the test. The only part of the website useful for the ASTB might be the instrument section.

This site is really good- http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ac/intro.htm very useful if you're not an engineer.
on their main website are general dictionary type pictures of US aircraft, boats and many other things- http://www.fas.org/man/index.html
You can even listen to bugel calls if you're into that sort of thing.

Fast math multiplication

Also uploaded my drill sheet.. If you solve 21, send me a private message.
I think I solved this correctly, if I didn't, someone please let me know. So you're given that 6 people can lay a certain amount of bricks in 10 hours. The problem doesn't tell you how many, but that's ok. Let's make it easy and say that 6 people, in 10 hours lay 60 bricks (set this as the goal amount). So that's 6 bricks per hour between 6 people, so 1 brick per person, per hour. At 5PM, 1 person is added every hour. From 11AM to 5PM is 6 hours. So 36 bricks have been laid. From 5PM to 6PM, 1 person was added, to give 7 total. We know each person lays 1 brick per hour, so by 6PM 43 bricks have been laid (36+6 original people+1 new added person). 6PM to 7PM one more person is added, so a total of 8 people. By 7PM, 51 bricks have been laid (43+6 original people+1 previously added person+1 new added person). Finally from 7PM to 8PM one more person is added, a total of 9. And the total amount of bricks laid is 60 (51+6 original people+2 previously added people+ 1 new added person). So from 11AM to 8PM is 9 hours to complete the job. Once again, I hope this is correct..

Thanks for the video's. The word working one definitely helps out. I have been doing it completely different (taking way to much time)
