Physics 8-26-11 Velocity Problems 2

PHYSICS – Velocity problems from Thursday – you’re doing a great job on these! Let me know how the take home lab is going for you. I think it will be a good break from your typical type of homework!

Good luck on those five problems. Try not to look at your notes, but if you do, work it again without your notes! And make sure to do more than just show the math – be sure that I can also follow your logic in the formulas. Ditto with units, etc. Don’t give up on the tortoise and the hare. A couple of hints: remember the distance the tortoise travels is the same as the distance the hare travels plus the extra 20 cm he was ahead. Also, the time the hare raced is equal to the time of the tortoise minus those two minutes he rested. Now go have fun! 🙂

  1. I figured out #7 without looking! Hooray! But the tortoise and the hare are giving me very much grief. I hope I’ll eventually understand this.. Help session Friday, right?

    • Megan – Yipee!! By the by, we may have to change the help session day. Let’s talk about it tomorrow in class.
