Learning Goal(s): Understand the following
How can you utilize Newton’s laws of motion to predict the behavior of objects? ▼ Do action-reaction force pairs (Newton’s third law) have a cause-and-effect relationship? Why or why not? ▼ How can free-body diagrams be utilized in the analysis of physical interactions between objects? ▼ How do Newton’s laws apply to systems of two or more objects?
Work on Slip n Slide Lab
- Reminder: use the Experimental Design Outline to guide your work. Be prepared to submit your writeup Friday. (Do NOT turn in work squeezed into the spaces on the sheet. It is meant as an OUTLINE, not a worksheet. Pay attention to the rubric, report what you did and your results!)
- BTW: With the proper equipment and good experimental technique, your results should be well within 10% difference between the two methods. I got 8% in a quick-n-dirty 15 min last night. #humblebrag
- PHYSICSPALOOZA III, today after school, 3:30-4:30
- Due Wednesday 12/2: Practice AP Problems (4b) with Google Form Answers
- Due Wednesday 12/2: Review Experimental Design Lab "Slip N Slide", be prepared to do the lab Wed & Thurs in class. Writeup due Friday. (Optional lab: Experimentally determine the coefficient of friction between sled and snow. Either must be completed and turned in by Friday).
- Quiz Friday covering all things Newton: Assignments 4.1-4.6, Sample problems, labs, etc.
- Another Sample 2-D force problem posted to YouTube. (Sorry for the delay - technical issues).
- Comprehensive Final, Dec. 17
- Anything missing? FINISH IT!
