Lets start this simply



blog-0042517001379045821.jpgSo I'll get straight to the point. There has been a lot of talk about insanity and it being crucial to the decisions of all of us to take Physics C, and I think there's some truth to that. I too may be a little insane for taking this class but I think that most people think that I'm completely crazy because I genuinely love running (I don't think that makes me crazy though). Sadly that's most of my life but in my free time I try to do some more exciting things like skiing and longboarding as much as possible. With that said, expect a lot of future blog posts on the physics of running and gravity related sports.

I'm taking Physics C this year because I aspire to be an engineer of some sort and be involved with something really cool. And the money wouldn't be so bad either. And I'm pretty sure that continuing to learn physics will help me in a college engineering program. Plus I think that physics is more interesting than chemistry and biology...

I'm really excited to learn some of the physics of the real world, rather than the laws of some unattainable perfect world that we learned in Physics B because that's boring. And lets be real, if the hardware store that was brought up so many times last year (you know that one that sells mass-less rope, friction-less tables, inclined planes and pulleys, and is likely full of resistance-less air) existed, it would put Lowes and Home Depot out of business in an instant. Interestingly enough, as of now I'm not scared of this class, probably due to false hope or ignorance, so I guess I'm anxious to see how that pans out in a few weeks.

Oh and I'm really tired right now so that's why this post may seem like a half- lucid rant.

Maybe it's not that simple after all.

Awesome first post!! As someone who just survived a college engineering program, I can tell you that learning physics (especially at the AP-C level) will help you immensely!! Good luck this year!

Would a shop that sold frictionless tables put anyone out of business. Could you even set something on them and have it stay still?.

As for the obscure reference to hardware stores, you would have had to been in Physics B last year and even then you might not get it. And to answer that question, if the table was perfectly level you could set an object on the table with no inertia shouldn't move. And any frictionless surface would no doubt be useful in other applications than just holding things.
