  1. Name: Walter Lewin Demonstrates Moment of Inertia Category: Rotation Date Added: 2017-12-05 Submitter: FizziksGuy The concept of moment of inertia is demonstrated by rolling a series of cylinders down an inclined plane.

  9. AP Physics 1 Essentials question: Dynamics

    Draw separate free body diagrams for each of the objects, showing the direction of the forces on each object. For example, for the (2m) mass, you would have a dot with an arrow to the left (T3), and an arrow to the right (T2). The up and down arrows (forces Fn up and mg down) are balanced, so we'll focus on the x-direction. Writing Newton's 2nd Law in the x-direction, since T2 is in the positive direction, we'll leave it as positive, and since T3 is in the -x direction, it will be negative. Therefore T2-T3 = (2m)a.
  10. Falling Penny vs. Falling Pen

    And THIS is why I avoid New York City...
  11. The Wonders of Time Dilation

    Fantastic blog post, and a great start on understanding some of the conceptual ideas around time dilation!
  12. Do billiard balls hurt?

    Full contact billiards... cool!
  13. Physics of the Candy Cane Sport

    That's a mighty cool looking stick!
  14. A Box of Minions

    Never thought of applying conservation of energy to minions... Unique!!!
  15. Work, Energy, Power Summary

    Nice summary of our last unit!
  16. Pokeball vs Pokemon

    Wow, learned all sorts of pokethings I didn't know before!
  17. Oobleck: a non-Newtonian fluid

    Have you ever tried to make it? How did it come out?
  18. A Haunted Blog Post

    Wow, that's some mighty creative problem writing!!!
  19. The Terminal Velocity of a Kitty

    That is a paw-some blog post about cats. The physics behind them always landing on their feet (or usually) is meownificent. Great job jumping on this blog post and avoiding procatstination. No kitten, this is pawsitively fantastic.
  20. Physics APC or ATC?

    Used to go to Rock Ventures all the time (nearly 20 years ago) -- it's been around for a while now. Cool stuff -- love all the tensions and physics in the knots!
  21. Social Facilitation in the Classroom

    Looks like several paragraphs all on the same topic -- could perhaps be combined into a single post...
  22. I Drop Everything

    Dropped my daughter once... didn't notice the air resistance kicking in. Did notice the mom resistance kicking in shortly thereafter, however.
  23. Supersonic speed

    If you have a chance, read up a bit on Chuck Yeager (and/or follow his Twitter). An amazing man with an amazing career and a fantastic sense of humor to boot.
  24. What Is This and Why Is It Important?

    Love this! My background is in microelectronic engineering, and I'm even in the middle of putting together a 2-hour workshop on microelectronics (presentation is in December) that will cover much of what you did over the summer. Great discipline, with TONS of fantastic jobs that are fun, challenging, and rewarding. We'll have to talk more...
  25. Force of a Linebacker

    Old Silverback is my favorite player!
