HP Cycle 10
10/31 - 11/3
🟢 5: M 10/31, 🔵 7: T 11/1 - final lab report
Today, we'll collaborate in your lab groups to discuss ideas for the final lab report. Lab reports are INDIVIDUAL! You may share ideas in your lab groups verbally, but all the writing must be your own - your own words AND your own sentence/paragraph structure, particularly in the last part about sources of error. My suggestion is that you discuss and listen to others in your group. Do not write anything at this time. Then let a couple minutes pass before writing everything in your own words. Do not share your document with any other students. Do not cut and paste any phrases into the chat. Do not share screens in your breakout rooms. Do not dictate or write down sentences while anyone in your group is talking. If I detect that your work is not completely your own in that last part about error, you could suffer serious consequence to your grade and/or disciplinary action, so be smart about this!
Homework: Analysis is due to ✏️ Google Classroom on Wednesday, November 2nd at 10pm. ❗Closed-notebook lab quiz on Thursday, November 3rd.
🟩 5: T 11/1, 🟦 7: W 11/2 - free body diagrams
Today, we'll first learn about how to draw free body diagrams in order to represent the external forces on an object/system. First read the PowerPoint below. Then watch the video below. Then practice on Free Body Diagrams Worksheet.
Presentation: Free Body Diagrams Powerpoint
Handout: Free Body Diagrams Worksheet
Homework: Draw free body diagrams for the objects on Free Body Diagrams Worksheet. ❗Closed-notebook lab quiz next class Thursday, November 3rd.
Video: This video was made for students in AT Physics, so there are some advanced concepts like knowing the direction of acceleration and also picking the "right" sign convention. There are also things about knowing if the forces equal each other that you can ignore for now. Just focus on how to draw the arrows and label them appropriately.
💚❗ 5: Th 11/3, 💙❗ 7: Th 11/3 - Newton's Second Law
❗Closed-notebook lab quiz Today.
After the quiz, we'll review Newton's Second Law through interactive lecture. We'll learn how to use our free-body diagrams to solve problems using Newton's Second Law.
In addition, we'll talk about the results of the lab and learn about what the accepted value is for our constant.
Presentation: How to use Newton's Second Law
Homework: Take your freefall video and post to ✏️ Google Classroom!
