Physics 10-18 Did the Hammock Crash? and A Street Sign Askew

PHYSICS: Great work today thinking through these problems! How you look at problems from the beginning can make a huge difference – huh?

A couple of things that work for me when doing equilibrium, etc., problems – first, draw them. Then go back through and separate resultants into components. If an object is in equilibrium, then there are no net forces – all the forces in the x direction balance – everything left equals everything right, and all the forces up equal all the forces down.

Head up – answers for tomorrow night’s Equilibrants II worksheet are below:

  1. Fn = 3430 N upward against feet
  2. Fn1 = Fn2 = 1890 N upward on each foot
  3. F forward = 4.59 N
  4. T1 = T2 = 1760 N
  5. T1 = 1360 N and T2 = 680. N

Honors Chemistry 10-18-23 Chapter 1 Test Overview

HON CHEMISTRY – Are you ready to celebrate what you’ve learned? God bless you as you study! Here’s our overview of chapter 1 and the test – good stuff!!

Make sure you aren’t just reading your book and notes. First, memorize the facts, then go back and make sure you can apply the concepts. Study examples, make your own examples, practice making questions. And don’t forget, if you are getting lost with everything you need to know, or if you’re not sure how to study, Chapter 1 Stuff to Know Sheet under the Test Info tab.

Also remember there are great review games that are in the Student Premium section of the online textbook. You can do this – I believe in you! I’m praying for you!!

Hon Chemistry 10-13-23 Elements & Intro to the Periodic Table

HON CHEMISTRY – Wow! Do you realize what we just did?!? We finished the chapter!!! Did you feel like today was mostly review?

Hey, have you had a chance to check out the chapter 1 study suggestion sheet? Let me know if there is anything you need help with before the test! (And you’re still learning the symbols of the elements, right?!?)
🙂

Physics 10-13-23 Forces and Inertia

PHYSICS: Remind me again why didn’t that pen go flying across the room instead of dropping into the bottle? Hmmm…..

So what do you reckon is the inertia of this car? Great discussion of forces today, and great start today relating mass to inertia! Now go forth and apply what you know to find the mass of your unknown!

Hon Chemistry 10-12-23 Classification of Matter

HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Wednesday! Great job today on asking questions to classify matter! How are you doing on the examples of homogeneous and heterogeneous matter? Here’s a question to think about again, can you tell me three different types of homogeneous matter?

And no, this isn’t part of a moonshine still, but it is copper and I thought it looked kind of cool! Speaking of….why do you think they use copper coil in stills??

Chemistry 10-11-23 Physical Properties & Changes

CHEMISTRY: Can you describe the physical properties of matter? Lots of review today, and tons of applications! Make sure you can apply what you learned today!

Don’t forget that we’re changing the syllabus – we’re finishing notes on chemical properties and changes tomorrow, and the book homework for Friday will be moved to tomorrow nights homework. Also, we’re moving the Observing a Candle activity to Friday. If you won’t be in class, that’s one that you can make up at home. Get supplies for it from me if you need something.

Chemistry 10-10-23 Intro to Chemistry

CHEMISTRY: We’re finally starting what chemistry is all about! Here’s the lesson from Tuesday. Can you apply the branches of chemistry and types of scientific work? As you go through the chapter, make sure you have the vocab down, and be sure you’re able to apply what you learned each day!

Now….how would you describe the intensive and extensive properties of this copper ore? Hmmm….
