there is all sorts of physics in sun light. for instance the sun light we see is actually delayed and comes in waves. what happens when a reflective surface meets sun light is that the light is refracted and shines on another surface. this actually occurs on several glass sky scrapers in cities and has been known to actually melt other objects such as parts of cars because the sun light is reflected back on an object.
to start off I am talking about the physics of doing an actual trick such as a kick flip where you pop the board up with both feet on and slide your foot off causing a great amount of friction on the grip tape to hold you to the board. when popping up and sliding one foot off the board it causes a rotation to occur underneath you and you then catch the board when the board is back to griptape up. once you land you have to plant the lading which is difficult to do but easier to catch the board be
when we hear music what is produced is sound waves which travel to the eardrum and vibrate causing us to hear certain frequency. the closer you get to a speaker of sorts when listening to music the louder it gets because the wave lengths are becoming shorter and the sound waves hit you closer thus causing a fuller and louder sound.
in a lake there can be many vehicles that travel to get from point a to point b. what then occurs in this is rippling waves as a boat passes. usually a lake would be pretty still yet vehicles disrupt current as well as wind speed. what occurs is called waves and these waves travel through a medium. for instance if a fairly big wave comes along I myself move along with the wave along the medium thus forcing me up then back down. these waves that occur tend to be transverse. the opposite is longit
the other day in physics I encountered gravity when a classmate, kylee during a lab was not paying attention and happened to stub her toe on the stool I was sitting on. every action has an equal opposite reaction so of course the stool fell from underneath me which then caused me to fall straight down. this occurred because there was no longer anything to support me so I tragically fell straight down. the reason for such falling is from what is called gravity. the acceleration due to gravity is
When someone speaks vibrations are sent throughout the room. This is the process of making sound. When sound waves or these vibrations reflect off of things and come back to you you then hear the sound being projected.
When you strike a match a flame appears. This is solely because of heat energy being made in joules when two compounds strike each other by a force of friction. This friction is actually the sole source to the ignition of the flame because when the compounds meet the friction is where the heat source starts.
When a ball is bounced on the ground the object makes a form of kinetic and potentials energy in which the ground and the Ball warm up. As well as this a ball can actually take form to floor a little bit as well. The kinetic energy and potential energy actually can force the ball upward while gravitational potential energy forces the ball back to earth.
The physics in a moving car involves the roles of velocity and also acceleration. For instance when someone slams on the gas there is a form of acceleration in which the cars velocity increases and continues to increase. When you slam on the breaks you actually deaccelerate to a stop this is essentially a negative form of acceleration. When an accident occurs a car applys a force on another object thus causing damage. The force of friction is also used when a car skreeches it's brakes.
it is a convenient time right now in talking about the physics that go into snow sports. for instance when it comes to skiing or snow boarding in this sense there is physics in which in order to maneuver all types of snow you must carve as they say which is actually using your body weight against the snow. when a skier maneuvers they tend to turn there body and legs against the snow and move sideways down a hill if the terrain is rough. when a skier falls they must use there own force to lift th
when you drive a car most everything that goes on belongs to the category of physics. this is because you have wheels, axels, and several other things that involve physics. some of these examples include when a tire touches down on the road. when a tire touches down and is moving there is an allowence to slow down or come to a stop because the tred on the tires provide what is called friction against the surface of asphalt. what ends up happening to the tires is the tred wears down because of fr
there are applications of physics involved when you put pen or pencil to paper. for instance with pencil to paper there tend to me more physics involved. with a pointier tip of the pencil the darker the mark you will make and also the pencil will slide easier considering there is less surface area in contact with the paper. when you put the pencil on paper harder you get darker marks, this is because when you press on the graphite, that force applied is enough to make more grapihe te in contact
during the catapult day my groups catapult was held by a door hinge and was held with the force of tension by bungie cords. what had then happened during our second run was the door hinge had snapped right off from the wooden board thus destroying the catapult. the physics in this has too do with the amount of tension that was placed upon the hinge because of the screws holding it into the board and the bungie cord thus pushing it forward at too fast of a velocity. the hinge had then over extend
in playing a musical instrument such as guitar we have certain physics applications applied. some of the applications used is amplification and also sound projection. for instance, when a person plays an acoustic guitar a string is strummed then causing the string to vibrate with a certain pitch. this pitch is what creates notes. when this vibration rings it is then projected off of nearby walls and an objects. this describes what is known as acoustics and if acoustics in a room are good the spu
