What is Pavel time? Pavel time is the time right before a deadline when actual work gets done. How does this relate to physics? It relates specifically to Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. Part of the theory of relativity states that measurements of various quantities are relative to the velocities of observers. In particular, space and time can dilate. So, in real life, as an object approaches the speed of light, it gets squished and time slows down for the object. How does this relate to Pavel time? In my theory of relativity, as more work gets done more quickly, time slows down and allows me to finish whatever assignment I have before the deadline.

Cheetahs are basically the supercars of the animal kingdom. They have a top speed of 75 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 time of 3 seconds, faster than a vast majority of production sports cars. A light and aerodynamic bone structure reduces drag forces to the absolute minimum, a long tail provides balance while sprinting and counterforces while turning which allows for extreme agility, and flat paws provide better traction than most cats. A light weight of 125 pounds on average allow the cheetahs powerful muscles do the minimum amount of work (since work=displacement*force) and thus energy is conserved to allow for more running. While cheetahs can only sustain top speed for about 550 meters, they are able to travel faster than most anything they're hunting due to some interesting biomechanics. For starters, cheetahs have an incredibly long stride length of 25 feet, a little over 4 times longer than the average stride of an elite miler and just over 3 times longer than the enormous 8 foot stride of 100m world record holder Usain Bolt. Just as Bolt dominates international competition by traveling farther on each stride than the competition, cheetahs can easily reach 70 mph by taking giant bounding strides. The cardiovascular system of the worlds fastest cat is a marvel in itself, with a much larger than average heart pumping more blood per beat than many other animals can manage. However to supply oxygen to this heart is a unique respiratory reflex. Like most four legged animals, cheetahs are forced to breath one breath for every full stride which while makes for large air intake, severely restricts endurance. What makes cheetahs unique is the fact that their abdominal cavities are tied to their diaphragms. When they push off with their hind legs the body tips up away from the ground a little and the organs slide back in the abdominal cavity, drawing the diaphragm back and forcing inhalation. When the front paws hit ground the body tips forward and the organs slide forward, expelling air from the lungs. The motion of the internal organs along with expansion and contraction of the abdominal cavity allow for cheetahs to take in the enormous amount of oxygen they need to sustain speeds of 70 to 75 mph. For a nice video of this check out: stay posted for the reasoning why cheetahs can't run far and humans can't run fast.

A lab in which students oscillate an extended spring to create standing waves. By measuring the period or frequency of the standing waves, as well as the wavelength, students calculate the speed of the wave using the wave equation. Ultimate goal of this lab is to have students understand that the type of wave and the medium determine the speed of the wave. The wave equation, holds true and describes a relationship, but the speed of the wave is not determined by adjusting the wavelength or frequency. Materials: Long springs stopwatches meter sticksFree
