## Estimating the deflection of a truncated cone using Python

In this post, we will complete a problem that might come up in a Strength of Materials class. We'll estimate the deflection of a truncated cone given an applied load using Python.

**I was a guest on the TalkPython podcast with Michael Kennedy!** We talked about teaching Python at a Community College and how I moved a college engineering class from MATLAB to Python using JupyterHub.

A quiver plot is a type of 2D plot that shows vector lines as arrows. Quiver plots are useful in electrical engineering to visualize electrical potential and valuable in mechanical engineering to show stress gradients. In this post, we will build three quiver plots using Python, matplotlib, numpy, and Jupyter notebooks.
