Physics 2-8-18 Vertical Circular Motion

PHYSICS: Great job on the vertical circular motion problems! Here’s the short lesson from today, then a look back at some of the early circular motion problems. Fun times!! 🙂

I would rate myself a 2/5 this week. My car was not much of a success because it only beat one car head to head. The highlight of the week was me working the circular motion problems and figuring them out for myself and getting them right. The circular motion lab however was a total failure that I basically need to start over.

This week I rate myself a three out of five. This week was tough for me. I didn’t understand the circular motion very well. I was very confused about it. I don’t feel like I did as good as I could have on the king of the hill. I think that I did well on the lab Wednesday. I am hoping to be able to understand circular motion better.

I would rate myself a myself a 4/5 this week because I feel like a understood the material well and was able to understand the problems. A triumph of this week was getting all the homework problems right. A struggle for the week was trying to figure out how to work some of the problems.

This was a good week for me in Physics. On Tuesday we had the King of the Hill challenge and overall my car did pretty well. We had an interesting lab on centripetal motion on Wednesday. It took a while to complete but we were able to finish during class. We also had a few cool demos today that blew my mind because of how cool angular inertia can be. I did surprisingly well on the circular motion worksheets we did this week. I’ll have to be sure to study the conceptual material so I won’t struggle as bad with it on the next est.

I would rate myself a 2 out of 5 this week because there were a few failures along with it. First, my car didn’t go as planned because every “fix” I made actually made it worse. Then, the lab was a distaster for me and Matthews so it was rough as well. The positive of this week is that I am understanding the concepts better and have done well on circular motion homework. I hope I continue getting better at these with practice.
