2: M 10/23

For those students who have already taken calculus, you'll be working the following Chapter 2 problems and non-uniform acceleration worksheet.   (The answer to #1 is incorrect on the website; it should be 1/3 m.)
  • For those in multivariable calculus and beyond:
    • Required: Ch 2 #66-68, Worksheet #1-3
    • Enrichment: Worksheet #4 and AP problem on back - 2010M3
  • For those in calculus this year:
    • Required: Ch 2 #66, Worksheet #1-3 
    • Enrichmant: #68
If there is remaining time, you can watch the video below and start problems from the next post.

Homework:  Make sure you've done required problems at least.  QUIZ on Static Equilibrium on Friday, October 28th.  Watch the following videos on center of mass.  Although there are quite a few videos, each one is not very long.

Center of Mass Trajectory (MIT Physics Demo)

Homework:  If you can get ahead, it'd be great!  Watch the following 2 videos on finding the center of mass of an object.  The first video shows you the theory on finding the center of mass.  The second video shows you how to find the center of mass of an object using the summation.  The third and fourth videos show you how to use the integral to find the center of mass.  Sorry for the long homework.  We need this information for next week.
