Time to go to the Movies

Physics is used in many movies! Movies are something that I constantly watch in my life. A movie that is one of my favorites is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Physics is constantly used in this movie when Augustus the fat German kid starts to drink the chocolate fountain and then gets sucked in the chocolate machine. If you watch the rest of the video you can see the physics in the movie!

My favorite Physicists

My favorite Physicists is the man that everyone knows! Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, in the Kingdom of Württemberg in the German Empire on March 14th, 1879. His parents were Hermann Einstein, a salesman and engineer, and Pauline Koch. In 1880, the family moved to Munich, where his father and his uncle founded Elektrotechnische Fabrik J. Einstein & Cie, a company that manufactured electrical equipment based on direct current. As you can see, science was already used in the Einstein famil

Strange Animal Discovered?

I've always had a love for animals since I was a little girl. I just came along this video when I was searching on youtube and discovered that OFCOURSE, Physics related!!! As you watch the video you can see how they use sound waves to detect the un known creature from the waters. More than 3,000 miles away, scientist discovered this creature. Watch the video to learn more about this thing bigger than a blue whale! Thanks for viewing:)

Italy Experience

This past spring break, I went to Italy with my Italian class. We had no other way of getting to Italy then to use physics. We actually used physics throughout the trip! We had a long 8 hour plane ride from Chicago to Germany and this contributed to the science of physics. We took off using inertia and had to use motors and jets to go against gravity so we can fly safe all the way to our 5 hour layover in Germany. As we landed the wings had a way of making the airplane, which if I might add w

Winter Wonderland

Last week I went onto a college visit to Mercyhurst University. I went to visit the college not only for myself but my brother is a senior there. Mercyhurst is located in Erie Pennsylvania. That is just about 20 minutes away from the Pennsylvania- New York border. In Erie, it is very cold place but it was especially cold that day because they got a little over 2 feet of snow. While my mom and i drove there, we noticed that physics is used in driving a car on a snowy road. We were slipping on

Football

The sectional footabll game is tonight so thats all on my mind right now! Physics is used alot in football and can win the game for the eagles!!! Whent he boys hit eachother, thats forces going aginst eachother. The football is s projectile that accelerates at 9.81 m/s^2 in the air from Sean Mannion, our Quarterback, to Dylan Harrington, our wide reciever. As many people know im a cheerleader and i cant wait to watch the game tonight! LETS GO EAGLES!!!!

Physics in Lacrosse

Lacrosse is a fun way of learning Physics! I have been playing since I was in 2nd grade and now I am just learning that Physics is all over the lacrosse field! The way you pass, shoot and score and the way you run up and down the field are all ways that Physics is used in the game of Lacrosse! Watch this really cool video of how lacrosse and physics are combined!

Catapults

For the past month we were assigned a project that was the catapults that we launched last Thursday in class. My partners were Jessica and Miranda and our catapult was pretty cool! Not only did we work hard on it, but we tested it at Jessica's house and it went far and thought that no doubt ours would go really far. We got a average distance of 5 meters and that was disappointing for the team. But that doesn't mean that we didn't try our best. This also means that we did physics because it went

Have you ever thrown a person in the air?

Cheerleading is a big part of my life and has been ever since I was born. Not only do you have to do fun cheers that get the crowd excited but also have to compete in competitions all around, against other teams. In the competition setting of cheerleading, there are many aspects of physics that are used in the SPORT. Such things are, jumping, tumbling, stunts and even the clap of your hands while doing your cheers. Tumbling is a big part of competitive cheerleading. I, myself, am a tumbler th
