Learning Goal(s): I can...
- ...understand the relationship between work and energy, and use it to predict the motion of objects.
- ...understand how the different modes of energy storage are transformed within a system and transferred between a system and the environment.
- ...understand how energy can be represented with graphs and equations. I can use those graphs and equations to predict the motion and position of objects.
- ...understand what it means for energy to be conserved, and what implications this has on motion and the universe.
- Finish Spring is the Thing Lab, using CoE concepts. Watch this to get the gist of what you are doing. Hints.
- Guess what? I tried it again! I took a spring that was being used by one of the lab groups, CAREFULLY measured the spring constant using a graph (as I have recommended SO MANY TIMES) and this is the result I got on my very first attempt, aiming at the sink. YOU CAN DO IT! You have to take careful measurements and do the physics you've been taught. It's not impossible!)
- CoE problem worked out, including both conservative AND nonconservative forces.
