Today, we'll start with a brief daily quiz.  

We will use the first half of class to work collaboratively on the lab.  Come up with a strategy for the solution.  Work out any of the physics required together.  Decide who will be in charge of what in the write-up and finish the majority of the write-up over the weekend.

With any remaining time, you can start working on practice problems from Chapter 13 in order to practice using Archimedes' Principle:

Required: 2005B5, 29, 32
Enrichment: 39, 41

Homework:  Finish the great majority of your lab write-up.  The only thing missing from your write-up should be the actual test where you say how many pennies your boat ACTUALLY held and what error might have been involved.  All of your theory should be done and written up though. The final write-up will be due on Tuesday, October 3rd at 11:59pm and needs to be submitted through Google Classroom.  Quiz on Archimedes' Principle Wednesday, October 4th.
