Seeing how physics relates to music I think will be very interesting!
hi lynn, I hope everything goes well for you with your auditions this year!
hey, I'm Brittany. I've played lacrosse since I was in 5th grade and it now runs my life. I've also played soccer since I was 4, and I play defense in both sports. I love photography and capturing the natural beauty in things. with the little amount of free time that I have I like to hang out with my friends.
I am taking physics because I want to go to college and become a veterinarian, and the more sciences that I can get out of the way the better! In physics this year I am looking forward to learning more about matter and energy. I also cant wait to build a catapult! I hope this class will be as fun as I think it's going to be.
Determining g Lab Deliverable
In Labs and Projects
irondequoit high school students have determined the acceleration due to gravety.
in groups of 4 they gathered a tape measurer, a stop watch, and a ball. as they droped a ball from stand on a table .60 meters from the ground and another student determined the amount of time it took for the ball to hit the gound, and repeated this 2 more times. to determin the acceleration they used d= vit + 1/2at^2. in having d as 2.6m, t as .6325 s and vi as o m/s^2 they converted the equation to be a= 2d/ t^2. later they calculated the percent error to be 32.5%.
