Physics at Irondequoit High School?

Breaking new at Irondequoit High school. Young Physicists Joey Mantione and DJ Walker have found a novel way to calculate the acceleration due to gravity. They worked countless minutes to establish and create experiment procedure that worked almost as hard as they did.

The procedure, although challenging, was done at a timely manner. First one of the students took a dodgeball and stood atop a table approximately 2.53 meters above the ground. Another student, with a stopwatch in hand, timed the amount of time from the release of the ball to the ground. This trial was repeated three times and then averaged to be about .76 seconds until it hit the ground. With simple math the young geniuses concluded that the acceleration due to gravity in their experiment was 8.76m/s/s.

After their experiment the boys went to work to determine the accepted value of acceleration due to gravity. Through countless work and research they used their most reliable resource, their teacher. Through their teacherâ€™s infinite knowledge the teacher concluded that the accepted value is 9.81m/s/s. Realizing that there was some errors to the experiment, including the boys timing the ball correctly and even air resistance, the young physicists calculated their percent error which was 10.7%.

Through their incredible work the boys have contributed to the physics community again. This is the physics news now signing off. Goodnight America.

### Car Speed Lab

Introduction:

This lab was designed to test us on our ability to use the formula for speed based on data collected in a natural environment that we used to conduct this experiment. By collecting the speed of ten different cars with two stop watches, we have data that we will use to work with the formula.

Procedure:

1. Measure a distance along the side of a road between two set points.
2. Gave two people stop watches.
3. Start the stop watch as a car passes the first point; stop the watch as it passes the second.
4. Record the time it took for the car to cover the distance, making sure you get the data from both stop watches.
5. Calculate the average speed of each car using the two times you recorded.

Calculations:

Speed is the measurement of how long it takes an object to move a certain distance. In this case, we measured in meters per second. If v=(d/t), then in this case, v=(m/s).

Conclusion:

This lab left us with results that could only have been expected. The cars crossed a distance of 24.3 meters, the time it took them  varying from about 6m/s to about 12m/s. Our results showed that most of the cars were going at about the same speed, or the most part.

### Physics Introduction

Not sure about any colleges yet but RIT looks cool. And that's why I took physics in a way, to help me learn what engineering I'll like best.

### Introduction Paragraph

My favorite place to visit was Jamaica because of the crazy resort there we went to. And the Bills are going to hopefully do a little better now that their quarterback has had a season to work with his players

### Physics Introduction

I decided to take physics because I am really interested in becoming an engineer. I consider myself really good at math so I figure I would have a easier job than most in taking this class. I'm a really big fan of engineering that involves physics so I think I will like this class. I can't wait for all the awesome experiments. I'm really looking forward to building catapults and some of the other projects. This is why I wanted to take physics, I just wanted to give a quick reasoning guys, thx for reading.

### Introduction Paragraph

Hey guys my name is Jman612 and I'm writing to tell you about myself. I'm a student at West Irondequoit High School and I'm going into my Senior year. I'll be graduating in 2015. I'm a big fan of soccer and football. I play soccer and watch football(My team is the Buffalo Bills) and I love to talk football. I've been to Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and I have plans to go to either Aruba or Belize next year. Well that's a basic look into my life and what I'm about, thx for reading.
