Last week in Physics we discussed motion. Motion is the ability to work gravity. From motion we started discussing how it caused Collisions & Explosions due to momentum. Dealing with momentum we learned a new formula called p=mv. We also learned that a change in momentum causes impulse.
Learning change impulse confused me because I didnt understand the formula. Through some practicing the formula started to make a little more sense.
This week in Physics we started studying circular motion. To find the circular motion of a circle, you need same formula that we studied in force and force of friction:
We also have to use a new formula to get acceleration:
I found this very easy and understood what I had to do.
As the week went on I started to get confused on how to find the period and frequency. From the lab, I gained a better understanding but I'm still a little confused.
