  1. I played dodgeball too!

  2. The reason why you get shocked more in the winter is because everyone has their heaters on which draws the moisture out of the air which causes the charges to build up and cling to us more since there is less moisture in the air.

  3. So are you saying that in one of these dimensions you're actually good at super Mario??. Fascinating stuff Jake, and don't go putting your cats in radioactive boxes, alright big guy?

  4. Jelliott, I can really relate to your analogies. I too wish to become a beautiful butterfly, to grow and grow until I burst with knowledge. although I find some of your post humorous as intended, I think you struck on very important ideas. I think hard problems can be torture but on the other hand, that makes them that much more rewarding when completed.

  6. Sweet blog post. If you wouldn't mind spreading the love and also buying your two student teachers silver Porsches, we wouldn't complain

  9. Starting to go off the rails a bit again... if you haven't been giving best effort, do so. Kick yourself in the fanny and get on with it. And if you have, be proud of what you've done and continue on. Regrets disappear when you give it your all. So get to it!

  10. Close, but as the angle in radians approaches zero, cosine of the angle won't approach zero... it should approach 1.

  12. Thrilled to have you aboard BrandyBoy... I think we'll be able to challenge you a bit this year, maybe the first serious academic challenge you'll face. When you hit that point (and most students do at some point in this class) -- keep in mind you have tons of fans rooting for you, and it's OK to struggle and fail. Failing is the first step to success, and learning how to fail productively is a terribly underestimated skill. Am I hearing the beginnings of some blog posts on how physics relates to boy scouts?

  13. Back squats are my fave as well... but 405. Still amazed, though, even for a movement that looks so simple and like it just requires raw power -- just how much technique plays a role in hitting that personal high lift. I was capped in the 360 range until I adjusted my foot position and hand position just a tiny bit, then all of a sudden 400 was in reach. Applying the force at just the right spot to maximize your efforts is SOOOO important!

  18. Quinn - Sorry you experienced the more painful side of physics. Elastic and inelastic collisions are really interesting to think about, especially in terms of the sports that are played. When I go bowling this weekend, I am going to try to put them both to work for me!! Which do you think would be most important?

  19. Hi Isaac - I appreciate the connections between physics and dodgeball that you are making. I know that I have seen some pretty intense slow-motion, time-stop videos that demonstrate the collision impacts you describe. I found one embedded in this prezi - https://prezi.com/nn6xcsmrgdzx/the-physics-of-dodgeball/It is in the "Collision" portion. There are also interesting connections to your concept of absorbed forces to other sports, including baseball and NASCAR. One is in favor of the absorption -one not so much....

  21. Skydiving pretty interesting, but if my parachute didn't open, I would hope that I would have enough air resistance to slow me down enough to stay alive. I wonder how fast someone is actually falling before they pull the parachute.

  22. An 80 meter pull? I am quite impressed. And I like this explanation and diagram. As an Ultimate player myself, obviously I was aware of the physics of the game and of the mechanics that the shape of the Frisbee add to the game. However, I did not know the exact purpose of the rim. Thank you for enlightening me!

  24. And now we're starting to make electronics small enough that the wave nature of particles is coming into play. Quantum electronic devices are becoming reality, and gate thickness of transistors are becoming so thin that electrons tunneling through dielectrics becomes a problem (or a feature).
