Happy Monday! In this week’s Wind Study we’re talking tables, metrics, and cranes capable of lifting hundreds of thousands of pounds!

To construct wind turbines, One Energy uses a crane to lift and install components, such as the generator pictured below (which weighs 101,200 pounds). For this week’s Wind Study, learn about “critical picks”, how to read tables and crane load charts, and help us answer two math problems about lifting components with a crane. 

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.
