the end of physics

Now that physics has come to a close, I think my last blog post should be about what topic interested me the most throughout this past year! Although physics by far was not my favorite class, there were definitely units that were actually quite amusing. Through this year we have learned about friction, kinetic energy, waves, potential energy, newton's laws, and tons of other things. But the one that stood out from all the rest was electricity. In the electricity unit, we had many cool labs th

Swimmingggg

second to last blog post ever, and this time it was very challenging coming up with a topic to relate to physics. After a lot of thought i choose to write about swimming in this blog post since the weather is heating up and more people are opening their pools and going to the beach. In order for swimmers to maximize their speed, they need to minimize their surface area as much as possible while traveling through the water. Swimmers continually look smaller because the bigger the swimmer the s

Softball > physics

After creating my first blog, coming up with another topic was extremely difficult but after long contemplation, I figured that softball is something I know a lot about and find very interesting. Not only is softball a sport I love but it also deals with tons of physics. Batting: In order for a batter to create a good hit at bat they must hit the ball in the "sweet spot" on the bat. The sweet spot is where the smallest amount of vibration exist, which maximizes the energy transferred and the

SHOPPING > physics

Thinking of a topic to start off my blog was actually a lot more difficult than I imagined! But after long hours of pondering( giving up hours of sleep), i woke up one morning and the light blub in my head went off, What about SHOPPING?! At this moment i felt the true essence of success run through my whole being, i felt alive for the first time in years. So i know what you must be thinking, how can shopping relate to physics? well i'll tell you...... When shopping your speed increases when y

Physics of Basketball

FInally, my third blog. After writing my second blog on softball, I thought it would be interesting to talk about my second love, basketball. When playing basketball, a lot of physics must be applied. Basketball deals with a lot of physics especially in its shooting, passing, and also dribbling. Without the concepts of physics being applied to this sport there would be no such thing as basketball. Shooting: When shooting the basketball there are many concepts that you must rememeber in order
