# Plans for Monday, October 1 – CP Physics

I’m not here today as you probably noticed, but you can still explore physics on your own.

You and a partner will be working together to complete a webquest on Newton’s Laws. All of the instructions are listed in this document, and you can type your answers right onto that page.

# Plans for Monday October 1 – AP Physics

I’m out today as you probably noticed. But don’t worry, the physics is still happening. Today you’re going to continue investigating work and energy. There are three main tasks for today, outlined below. You can work with a partner to complete them.

1. On the bottom of Friday’s notes there is a brief explanation of Hooke’s Law and how you might use that equation to find the spring constant of a spring (More information here). Since I’m not there to supervise your work with very dangerous springs, you are going to perform an online version of this lab. Elastic Lab – Hooke’s Law  Every time you reload the page a new spring is loaded (there are 7 different springs). I’d like to collect force vs stretch data on 3 of the 7 springs. Using the graphing program of your choice, plot the Force applied vs the change in spring length for the 3 springs (A triple line graph!).  Insert the best-fit line and find the slope of each line. (Hmmmm, what does that slope equal….?) Make sure to include a key so we know which line is which.
2. Watch these two videos that provide a walkthrough of how to solve conservation of energy problems
3. Try some examples yourself! Screenshot you and your partner’s epic success.
4. If there’s any extra time you can use it to prepare for Wednesday’s exam.

# Motion Graphs and Stuff

Happy Monday!!

Work with your buddy (or maybe not your buddy, just the person who happens to be next to you…) to complete the challenges below. Make sure you show me when you are done:

# CSI Projectiles

Click here to go to the lab activity for today. Type your answers into that document and share it with me when you finished it

# Force Table Lab

All of our force tables were built when Gover Cleveland was president, so they are a little old.

For this lab, you will be using a virtual simulation instead, but the process is the same as if we had the real thing.
