THE THEME OF THE KITE AND CHARACTERISTICS
Problem 1: In 1820 George Pocock connected several large kites to a carriage and pulled it from Southhampton to London. Since road taxes were based on the number of horses used to pull a carriage, he was able to avoid any taxes! The 60 mile trip took two hours. Modern kite buggies now go twice as fast but seldom go as far. How fast was the carriage moving? By my calculations, the carriage was moving BLANK miles per hour.
Problem 2: In the year 169 BC, the Chinese General Han Hsin used a kite to measure the distance between his camp and the wall of the enemy city. His soldiers then dug a tunnel the same distance in order to crawl under the wall and attack from inside. The city was conqured by a kite! How can you measure a minimum distance with a kite? By, blah blah blah and blah blah blah.
