### Quake 3 Physics

I learned something new today -- great analysis of running, and given how much I run as part of our crossfit workouts, I'm looking forward to giving the stride variation a try!

### Ti selfie

Excellent!  Make sure to post your picture here too.  :-)

### Mike V's First Physics Blog

Nice first blog post Mike, and I'd love to hear more about how physics ties into martial arts!

### College?

Nice post Gareth -- by the way, did you notice that your blog had been read more than 10,000 times?  Quite the popular author you are...

### AP Physics C, A New Hope

(PS -- I like the Star Wars reference!)

### AP Physics C, A New Hope

You are absolutely right Dan -- it is a challenging class, and a large portion of the reward comes learning how to struggle, get frustrated, and realizing you can come out OK on the other end.  Hang in there -- it won't be easy, but come June, it will have been worth it!

### Greetings and salutations

What an amazing post jelliott -- lots of great insight.  Physics C is all about that logical process, and building your "arsenal" of problem-solving tools.  And as strange as it may sound, don't let the calculus scare you.  You have an amazing calculus teacher, and by the end of the year, you're going to actually prefer the problems that have calculus in them, you'll be so good at it.  Calculus is just slopes and areas, things you've been doing for years -- the only real difference is the symbology looks a little different, kind of like reading a different language.  Once you learn the language, though, you're golden!

### First Post

Welcome to AP Physics C!  I love this course because you can really begin to see what scientists mean when they talk about the "beauty of the universe" and the patterns behind the math.  It all finally starts to make sense instead of just coming from random memorized equations.  BUT, you gotta do the work.  This is one course where even just a few cut corners can spell certain doom.  Prioritize your time, build that self-discipline, and let's make it a stellar year!

### PhysX C, Oh yeah!

Welcome to AP Physics C JGalla -- thrilled to have you here, and looking forward to MAKING it a fun year!

### My big undertaking...

Looking forward to a tremendous year Lindsh23!

### The Physics of Poems (Or really, the poem of physics)

Very cute walsh416... now make sure to get a full night's sleep!

### Physics in frozen!!!

Oh my, I never thought to apply physics concepts to Frozen.  I've got a new weekend activity with my girls!

### Physics in working out

Excellent analysis bailliexx13.  TONS of examples of physics in exercising... some of my favorites:

### Physics in River Monsters

Those are some scary fish!

### Guitar String Resonance

I thought it was Alicia that gave the 12-string that unforgettable sound!

### Iron Man Physics

Nice example of a "unique" application of magnetism, Spencer!

### iss

Cool link -- looking forward to checking it out when our skies clear up a bit!

### Shooting An Arrow

Projectile motion, forces, conservation of energy -- it's all in there!

### Physics of Singing

Wow, that's fast!  Was Kristen on key?  Ever wonder why we sound so good singing in small areas (i.e. why singing in the shower is so popular?)

### Physics in Precalc

Tremendous overlap with math and physics... and I believe in math classes instead of just learning the component method of analyzing projectiles, you'll also explore them in terms of parametric functions!

### The Physics of Siren Songs

Very cool, an excellent and creative take on sound and sirens.  The wavelength symbol is actually pronounced lambda (λ)

### Physics in Movies (Skyfall)

I, also, enjoy analyzing movies to see just where they "go off the rails," physics-wise.  Pirates of the Caribbean has a great clip that makes it easy to do a similar analysis:

### the phyisics of Breaking ( and fixxing) a dishwasher

I'm impressed you were able to get it back up to speed... well done!
