  1. We all knew this would come eventually, from a person like myself. Personally, I love pokemon videogames- they're fun, entertaining, and you can do so many different things in them. Much better that the televisions shows, for sure. While I was pondering how to tie in my nerdy-ness into a physics post, I came up with this. Hopefully it's not too terrible So, to begin, let us dive into the game itself-- literally. Within this "small" (by the standards when it was first made, at least) pokemon Gold cartridge lies a mess of wires, chips, resisters, etc, and the battery that powers it. It
  2. Through out my years as a trumpeter, I have fallen in love with my instrument. I really never gave much though as to why, or how, it plays the notes that it does. Now, with my knowledge of physics, it all makes perfect sense. The trumpet is a precise instrument; one dent, clog, or hole could ruin the beautiful sound that may come out of it. The trumpet is made up of multiple parts, each critical to its performance: When first learning to play the trumpet, the hardest part is learning how to buzz your lips in the correct way to get a clean sound, and then how to adjust the pitch as you
  3. It's quite interesting how many people believe the myth... and also amusing how they react to busting that myth! Quite cool
  4. You definetly had a lot of time on your hands... but facinating, nonetheless. I wonder if my boxer would jump on a trampoline like that...
  5. My childhood, like many others, was spent watching many Disney Movies. One of my all time favorites was the Lion King- I never grew tired of it. One scene that always sticks in my mind is that once music number of young Simba and Nala and, of course, the scene of Mufasa's Death. (0:49-1:20) It can usually bring tears to even the toughest of teens, yes? As a child, this scene really never bothered me and, now, this sad scene seems to bother me so much more. Mufasa died a heroic, and untimedly, death by saving his only son. However, we should move onto the Physics now. How accurate
  6. I had never put much thought into this... but it makes sense- how the loose chains keep us from flipping. Very cool!
  7. How interesting. So, really, when someone says something is Purple or Red I can argue that it's really white?
  8. Most of us have, at some point, shot an arrow at something with a bow, correct? Whether it be for fun, for sport, or for gym. But why is Archery so hard for some, and so natural for others? Is it some lucky skill inherited from parents? Or simply some people are more skilled than others? I, personally, have yet to hear of a segment of DNA that creates a Robin Hood but... maybe it's possible. Or, perhaps the successful Archers have a good feel for Physics. Before you aim, you must first draw back the bow string. This is actually physics in itself- you're doing work by stretching out the
  9. Breaking news just in: physics students at IHS have justcalculated the acceleration due to gravity! Said students had the tallest student hold the ball up in the air. The other students measured the distance fromthe floor to the middle of the ball. Then the tallest student dropped the ball and timed its fall 3times. Then they calculated theacceleration with the formula: a=2d/t^2. They discovered that the acceleration due to gravity is 11.49 m/s^2 withtheir percent error equaling 17.2%! “Thisis a small drop for man, but a greater drop for physics.”
  10. Taylor Ch, Josh W, Abby, Mary, and Elie We wanted to figure out the velocity of cars passing by our High School. We measured 30meters between two points and had people standing at both points. We also had two people recording the time it took for each car to pass: one would say go when the car passed, heading south, and the two would start their time, then stop it when it passed the second person 30m away.

  11. I find it awesome that you're so athletic and want to major in Psychology! It's also an interesting reason to take Physics... Best of luck this senior year!

    So, I'm a junior at IHS and the best way to describe me is "interesting". All my friends are strange- some may even call a few crazy- but I love hanging out with them and, unfortunately, I've picked up a lot of their strange quirks (and when I say strange I mean down right WEIRD). I'm a little bit of a nerd, too... if you ever ask me a question about animals, I'll either know the answer or quickly go to figure it out so I do know it. I love animals and want very much to be a Zookeeper when I'm older; that or an [exotic] animal trainer. I'm not sure quite yet which college I want to go to,
  13. And you're usually the reason I know the weather, Wash-kun! I can't wait for the future when this Physics class pays off and you're dream comes true
