Kinematics Crime Scene

Before Class Preparation:

In Class Activity:

  • Who destroyed Wilma Wilshire’s priceless antique vase?
  • Can you:
    • Use the kinematic equations to solve for an unknown variable
    • Set up a free fall problem using the acceleration of gravity
    • Interpret a diagram to calculate the acceleration for a moving object
    • Create a mathematical model to predict for a given scenario
    • Work productively in a group

After Class Work:

  • Google Classroom: Conclusion Discussion
  • Braingenie

Non-uniform motion (Multiple Days)

After Class Work:

Resonance in an air column

Before Class Preparation:

  • Read this overview of Resonance in an Air Column
  • Answer Pre-Lab Questions in Google Classroom (due before class)
  • What is the distance between different parts of a standing wave (nodes, anti-node) in terms of wavelength?
  • Read this handout: Air Column Resonance
    • Print if possible
    • Identify the variables on the handout
    • We’ll be working with water, so computers are not a good idea
  • Download frequency apps:

In Class Activity:

  • What is the goal in a science experiment?
  • Resonance of standing waves
  • Resonance in an air column
  • Verifying the speed of sound in air
