Gas Compression and Expansion

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you calculate the energy used, or made available, when the volume of a gas is changed? A bicycle pump, a refrigerator and the internal combustion engine change the...

Air Tracking of a Ground Object

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can a camera, mounted on a helicopter, be used to track the location of a ground-based object?

A number of discussion ideas are considered before using 2D and 3D...

Power Demand

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematic in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you predict future power requirements?

Students are required to complete a table by substituting values into a formula and plot a graph. The interactive file can...

Resistor Production

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can production outcome data from a manufacturing process be analysed to optimise the process?

Students consider the outputs of resistors to see the outcomes form a...

Simple Gears and Transmission

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how are transmissions designed so that they provide the force, speed and direction required, and how efficient is the design?

Students consider the physical...
