Week 9:  1 November to 5 November 2021

1 November 2021:

In Class:  Finish algebraic calculations from Lab 2:  Orienteering.

Expectations:  Students will be able to sum multiple vectors algebraically.

Due:  Pages 1:167-169 (237 – 252).

2 November 2021:

No Class:  Professional Development Day.

3 November 2021:

In Class:  Conservation of Momentum:

  • pbefore = pafter
  • pbefore = momemtum before
    pafter = momentum after
  • Expectations:  Students will solve momentum and impulse problems.

    Homework:  Pages 1:169-170 (253 – 259).

    4 November 2021:

    No Class:  Physics does not meet on Thursday.

    5 November 2021:

    In Class:  The Pendulum:

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

  • T = 2π√l/g
  • T= period
    π= 3.141 592 65
    l= length of pendulum
    g= acceleration due to gravity
  • 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 preparing for a test on Chapter 1 Sections 1 – 6.

    Expectations:  Students are expected to be able to solve problems using the pendulum equation.

    Lab:  catch up day for labs and lab reports.

    Note:  1st quarter ends 12 November 2021.
