I think this title is suitable for this post considering the date (I'm posting this about a week later than I should have). The last two weeks have been interesting. To start, there was that kinematics test on the 21st, and I did not exactly get an ideal grade on it. However, I know why. I did not plan well enough what exactly I should be doing each day in school and at home, which kept me from using my time as effectively as I could have been. I think it's safe to say I fell slightly behin
Woah! Erika's doing a blog post that's not music related, crazy! Fun fact, I used to take archery, and I want to start again. With my favorite part of the year in gym approaching, I'd like to talk about some of the physics involved in archery, specifically the bow. The most important part is the force and energy exerted when pulling back the arrow and letting it go. Unlike what some may think, when pulling the arrow back, you are not stretching the string. What you are actually doing is chan
Since we just started electrostatics, I thought I'd do a blog post about something related to that. So we all remember the demonstration with a balloon and someone's hair, right? I know we did it in physics last year, but it's probably something most of us did as kids. Well, my brother and I used to do something a little different. Notice, I said used to, so I tooooootally wasn't doing this last week. Instead of a balloon and our hair, we used a couch. I know that sounds really weird, and
