Week 8:  23 October to 27 October 2023

23 October 2023:

In Class:  Conservation of Momentum:

• pbefore = pafter
• pbefore = momemtum before
pafter = momentum after
• Expectations:  Students will solve conservation of momentum problems.

Lab 3:
Data collection and analysis of Speeding Cars Lab.

Expectations:  Students will be able to use a spreadsheet to analyze distance and time data and to create graphs to find velocity.

Due:  Pages 1:167-169 (237 – 252).

Homework:  Pages 1:169-171 (253 – 259).

24 October 2023:

In Class:  The Pendulum:

Calculating the period of a pendulum (Not on Reference Tables):

• T= period
π= 3.141 592 65
l= length of pendulum
g= acceleration due to gravity
• Expectations:  Students are expected to be able to solve problems using the pendulum equation.

Relationship between frequency and period (See Waves Table):

• T=
• 1
f
• T= period
f= frequency
• Expectations:  Students are expected to be able to convert period and frequency.

Due:  Pages 1:169-170 (253 – 259).

Homework:  Begin the T1S8 Practice Exam.

25 October 2023:

In Class:  Review for the Exam next week by going over the T1S8 Practice Exam.

26 October 2023:

No Class:  Physics does not meet on Thursday.

27 October 2023:

In Class:  Work:

• W = Fd = ΔET
• W= work
F= force
d= displacement or distance
Δ= change
ET= total energy
• Expectations:  Students are expected to do work (or, at least, to solve work problems).

Due:  Pages 1:169-170 (253 – 259) and finish the Free Fall Reaction Time Lab report.

Homework:  Pages 2:49-50 (1 – 10).

Note:  1st quarter ends 9 November 2023.
