Week 7

The time normally reserved meeting and brainstorming was spent listening to a lecture from Professor Du and taking a quiz on project report writing guidelines.  The time that was left for class was spent discussing the discrepancies in the energy calculations.  The team is currently attempting to reverse engineer the required power input equation of the full-scale track, which was approximately 5.61*10^6 kWh.  As of right now, the team is still off by about 100,000 kWh for the power calculation, which is no small discrepancy.

More design details were discussed in a meeting with Dr. Furman, who encouraged the team to continue pushing out design ideas and sketches as rapidly as possible.  Putting out a high number of sketches should be an effective method for generating ideas.
