Day 65: N1L including the Giant Hovercraft of Physics

Advanced Physics:

In the first part of class we looked at some examples of Newton’s 1st Law.  I did a few classic N1L (inertia) demo’s.  I’m sure most of you have seen this one:

I also had the students get involved.  I made  I ‘heart’ Physics book markers the students could earn by getting it out from underneath the dry erase marker without touching or disturbing the marker.  Sort of a mini version of the table cloth demo.

After that, they rode our giant hovercraft of physics (sorry, no photos).

We also did a bit of WB’ing on a practice sheet that made use of  motion pillars.  Here is an example:

We did not quite finish, so that is where we will pick up tomorrow.


General Physics:

We finished the phan cart predictions and continued to practice solving constant acceleration problems with a v-t graph.  As of yet, the generals have no kinematic equations for constant acceleration.
