Happy Monday! Time for another Wind Study – this week we’re talking 2-D geometry and rates.

One Energy’s wind turbines sit upon 80-meter-tall towers, which have a ladder that runs from the basement up to the top deck, just below the nacelle. Employees climb this ladder from time to time, in order to perform maintenance on the turbine. Help us determine the length of this ladder, as well as how long it will take our Technician Justin to climb it!

Download this week’s Wind Study Homework Question (and check back Friday for the answer!) This question can also be found on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Have questions about some of the words used in this question, like “nacelle”? Check out webpage 4.1 Energy Terminology.
