Physics 11-29-11 Chapter 5 Review Worksheet Problems

PHYSICS – Hey guys, it was good to get back to exercising the old gray matter today! Here are some of the problems from the first chapter 5 review worksheet: 3, 4, 5, 2, and 10. Watch out for 2 and 10! You did a great job on them with me in class, but make double sure you can work them also by yourself. That’s homework tonight, re-work by yourself the ones you didn’t get before. And then do it again til you make sure you have it! 🙂

I’ve never seen Old Faithful in person, have you? So we calculated the velocity of the water coming from the bottom – reckon how much power that would be? Power? Let’s talk about that tomorrow!

Physics 11-18-11 Law of Conservation of Energy

PHYSICS: So why is the first hill of a roller coaster always the highest? Here’s the lecture from Monday on the conservation of energy. Great job on the concepts and problems today – let’s put it to practice next week, and even this weekend on that take-home lab. Hey, if you were to design a roller coaster, what would it look like?!? 🙂
