PHYSICS – Great work on the problems today! I think it was a good idea for us to regroup and make sure you had the conservation of energy formula and the work-energy theorem down before we move on to the last part of the chapter tomorrow. Are you still trying to follow formulas, or are you starting to be able to think through the problems and and begin to make connections?
Be careful – don’t just start grabbing formulas and throwing in numbers. Make sure the formulas make sense – ask yourself every time why it makes sense for you to put that particular number in that particular part of the formula. And work them over and over and over until it comes naturally to you!
Here is the worksheet, Ch 5 Review Problems for homework tonight (#1 – 5, 10). Sorry it’s late, I had to go get a flu shot! 🙁
