SPACE SHUTTLE SHORT CIRCUIT

This problem focuses on the EGIL flight controller, who monitors the electrical systems, fuel cells and associated cryogenics of NASA's space shuttle. Using a circuit layout from the space shuttle, students will apply Ohm's law to solve for unknowns.

Students will

- apply Ohm’s law to solve for unknowns in a DC circuit; and
- analyze data to derive a solution to a real life problem.
