Physics 1-10-18 Collision Problems & Bouncing

PHYSICS: Here’s a new way to study collisions! Somebody’s having way too much fun with veggies!

How are you doing with the problems? Since we didn’t really work any in class today, I’ve found an old vodcast that I’ve posted below that also has some of last night’s kinetic energy problems as well as the lesson on bouncing, etc.

Are you ready to crank it up a bit? Here’s a hint – check for connections between the conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy. Also, that old vodcast below might have some hints for you! You can do it!

  1. It has been another interesting week in physics. Not meaning to disappoint us, the momentum problems really increased in difficulty from their relatively easy state last week. Now we have to remember our first semester in physics in order to solve them! We did a thLab exploring how momentum works with marbles. I thought it was pretty cool to see that for myself with common materials like marbles. Next, we get to design our own lab to use Capstone to demonstrate the law of conservation of momentum. I am doing pretty well on the math problems but I will be sure to keep practicing for the test next week!
