Today we finally were able to have the post-lab discussion on the collisions experiment. It was a bit of a different style of discussion. 258 more words
Today we did a pre-lab discussion for the two remaining energy assets, kinetic and gravitational. The discussion centered around how we could use the knowledge we have of elastic energy to study kinetic and gravitational energy. 263 more words
Over the last 3.5 days of class (yes, another 1/2 in there), the students completed and independent research experiment related to Hooke’s Law. Essentially they came up with one change they wanted to make to a spring/spring system, made a hypothesis about how the change would affect the spring constant, then gathered and analyzed the data to verify the hypothesis. 361 more words
Finally! I’ve promised to do a post on this and the time has come to finally complete that promise!
Lets talk about Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM), the motion in which the acceleration of a particle is always towards a fixed point, O, on the line of motion P. 506 more words
