Words for Spell Check:


Displacement distance travelled Velocity speed and direction Acceleration change in velocity Equation mathemetical relationship Variable unknown quantity Initially at the start Stationary standing still Derivation to come up with something Coordinate a number for a location Origin the starting point Customary the usual way Exhibition a showing Predominant: most common Galileo: smart guy Contradictory: opposite meaning Experiment: lab activity Volatile: easily turned to gas Vaporized: turned to gas Quadratic: expressions with x2 Chandelier: A fancy hanging light Projectile: object going through the air The displacement equation is X = Xf - Xi Velocity is speed and direction. Acceleration is the change in velocity per unit time We have 4 general equations this chapter The variable for displacement is X Objects are initially located at Xi If an object is stationary, it is standing still We will learn the derivation of a couple equation this chapter The location of an object is its coordinate The origin is where x=0 it is customary for positive values to be to the right of the origin We will have a car exhibition this chapter Galileo challenged the predominant views of science. Galileo wrote about a famous though experiment. Galileos experiment demonstrated contradictory results We will do many experiments this chapter The ACT practice deals with volatile gases The ACT practice deals with comets becoming vaporized Honors will use the quadratic equation to solve problems. A story problem deals with a falling chandelier. Projectile motion is when objects fall in an arching path.

KILL A MYTH
Myth: Velocity is the same as speed. Acceleration means speeding up Fact: Words often have a different meaning when applied to science. Velocity means speed and direction. Acceleration can mean speeding up or slowing down. Myth: Bullets stay in the air a lot longer because they are moving so fast Fact: All materials fall at the same rate, no matter how they are moving (if you ignore forces on things like airplane wings. Well study those forces in Chp11) Equations: Chp 1 F = 9/5 C + 32
1 mile = 5,280 feet 1 inch 2.54 centimeters 1 gallon = 4 quarts 1 liter 1.057 quarts 1 English short ton = 2,000 lbs 1 pound = 16 ounces 1 mile 1.6 kilometers 1 yard=0.914 meters 1 quart = 2 pints 1 quart = 2 pints 1 kilogram 2.2 pounds 28 grams = 1 ounce

K = C+273

Chp 2 _ V = X/t Xf = Xi + Vt X = Xf - Xi V = (Vf+V1)/2 a = V/t a = (Vf Vi)/t Xf = Xi + Vit + at2

Vf= Vi + at 3

Lesson 1 Displacement and Velocity


Before We Begin: See unit organizer, Do the ACT practice. Activate Your Brain: A) In a laboratory experiment, what is a control and what is a variable? B) Convert 86 centimeters to meters. C) Convert 10 inches to meters.

D) How did police catch speeders before the invention of hand-held radar? E) What words/phrases mean that an objects speed = 0 mph? Todays Goal: Learn the differences between speed & velocity. Big Idea: Both displacement and velocity indicate direction. Distance and speed do not.

1) Read as X sub f means the

2) Read as X sub i means the

x = x - x
f
7) Read as change in x or ____________________________________ or ______________________________________. This can be thought of as distance and direction travelled. 8) Displacement can be positive or negative, depending on the direction of travel. Displacement has magnitude (number = how far) and direction (sign = left/right or up/down) 9) Measures that include magnitude and direction are called______________________.

3) both are measured in relation to some point called the________________________ This can be put anywhere we want to, but often a situation will lead to an obvious easiest choice. 4) A _________________________________ is made up of the origin and arrows showing which way is positive. This is a number line used in the problem. 5) Another name for this is___________________ 6) It is ____________________________ (or a tradition) to put positive values to the right of or above the origin.

Science Sidebar The Speed of the Universe


Professor Steven Weinberg was a researcher of high energy physics who won the Nobel prize in physics. He wrote in the journal Scientific American: how surprising it is that the laws of nature and the initial conditions of the universe should allow for the existence of beings who could observe it. Life as we know it would be impossible if any one of several physical quantities had slightly different values. What are these initial conditions that he spoke of? Utilizing only naturalistic assumptions (assuming the unprovable idea that nothing outside of matter and energy exists), the scientific theory of the Universes origin is that the entire universe is expanding from a single point of space. Most estimates agree that this expansion started about 12-15 billion years ago. Some estimates are as small as 9 billion or as big as 19 billion years ago, but they are usually in that range. When studying the Big Bang theory, it is important to understand that it claims that not only protons and electrons and other bits of matter that are rushing away from this single point. It is all of space itself that is expanding. The universe is getting bigger and bigger as we sit here and think about it. For many years it was hotly debated as to the nature of the expansion of the universe. Was it expanding so fast that it will continue forever? Is it slow enough that gravity will eventually cause things to come to a stop and then pull back together in a Big Crunch? An unexpected answer came at the end of the last century. The universe is currently expanding at faster and faster rates. The reason for the acceleration is unknown at this time. Some currently unknown type of force is pushing the universe outwards. Researchers currently call the cause of the expansion Dark Energy until they can figure it out. (It might just be another form of a currently known force.) Further studies in the early history of the universe have come to other surprising results. It turns out that the speed of the universes expansion at early moments of the universe must have had values that lie within a very narrow range if the universe was to be able to have life. If the expansion were one part in a million faster( 0.00001% faster), then no elements besides hydrogen and helium would have formed. Obviously, this precludes any collection of molecules that could be considered to be a living organism. Other elements would not form because the hydrogens and heliums would get too far away from each other before gravity and other forces could bring them together to eventually form stars. On the other hand, the expansion could not be much slower. Steven Hawking, a well-known researcher in the history of the universe, wrote: "If the rate of expansion one second after the big bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million (0.000000000000001% slower), the universe would have re-collapsed before it ever reached its present state." This is true because the longer materials are close together, the more effective gravity (and other forces) is at pulling them together. All matter would quickly pull together similar to how a black hole pulls all nearby matter into it. What do you think of that?

The following 2 questions are from the Science Sidebar: 1. What would have happened to the universe if its early expansion was a tiny bit faster? (Know this for the quiz.) 2. What would have happened to the universe if its early expansion was a tiny bit slower? (Know this for the quiz.) Direct and Inverse Relationships: In the equation, V = x/t, the V and the x are both in the numerator, therefore they are directly related to each other. For a given value of time, if you double x you end up doubling V. If you divide x by 3 you will end up dividing V by 3. Whatever you multiply or divide one variable by, you do the SAME thing to the other variable. Since t is in the denominator, V is inversely related to t. For a given distance, if you double the time allowed, you need to divide V by 2. If you divide the time by 3 you have to triple the V. Whatever you multiply or divide one variable by, you do the OPPOSITE thing to the other variable.

Lesson 2 The Short Xf Equation


Before We Begin: Todays goal: The Main Idea: Grade Hw1, See the unit organizer. Find the final location of an object that is moving at a steady speed. We can combine and rearrange equations to derive new ones. Activate Your Brain: A) Find an objects displacement if it starts 3 m to the right of the origin and finishes 8 meters to the left of the origin. B) Find an objects average velocity is it moves 91 m to the left in 3.3 seconds. C) A car starts at the origin. Where does it end up if it travels at 30 m/s for 9 s? D) (We havent learned an equation for problem, but see if you can figure it out anyway) A car starts at a point 50 m to the right of the origin. Where does it end up if it travels at +30 m/s for 9 s? E) (Repeat the previous problem, but instead of using numbers, we are only given variables instead of numbers.) A car starts at a point A meters to the right of the origin. Where does it end up if it travels at a speed of B meters per second for C seconds?

1. Rewrite the average velocity equation and rearrange to have displacement by itself

2. Combine this equation with the definition of displacement and then get the final location by itself.

Lesson 3 Acceleration
Before We Begin: Grade Hw1, see the unit organizer. Activate Your Brain: Do the ACT practice on the following page Todays Goal: Learn to use equations to calculate acceleration. Honors: Also calculate the average velocity of an object with steady acceleration. The Big Idea: 1) The equation for acceleration is similar to the equation for velocity

Define: Acceleration is any change in ___________________ per unit time. (faster OR slower)

2) Since velocity has two parts, you accelerate if either one of the parts changes. So if you change ________________________ or change _____________________________ you experience acceleration.
Discuss amusement park rides

3) Is something accelerating if it is slowing down?_____ 4) Think about Lesson1. There we learned that velocity is the rate of changing position per unit time. If acceleration is the rate of changing velocity per unit time, what is the equation for acceleration? (We will not be calculating the acceleration of an object due to change of direction.) 5) Derive 3 different versions of the equation with acceleration. When would you use each?

NEW INFO

In Q#1-2, the observers are seeing the same object speeding-up, but they measure the acceleration to be different. One observer sees the acceleration to be positive and the other sees it negative. Therefore, you need to recognize that the sign of the acceleration does NOT indicate if it is speeding up or slowing down.

Lab 6b: Paper Drop


Goal: To find the acceleration due to gravity if air friction is removed. Materials: paper, stopwatch Background: With the water balloon drop, the acceleration value was affected to some degree by air friction. It can be argued that this was very small compared to the errors of reflex time, but none the less friction did play a role. There are ways of calculating the acceleration if air friction did not exist. Some researcher has such a huge budget that they have built tall towers (or deep wells) that get the air sucked out of them and then experiments can be dropped a significant distance without air friction. Sadly, we dont have such a tower at our disposal. Another way that researchers attack this kind of problem is to repeat an experiment many times, each time getting closer and closer to the ideal situation. The results slowly change during the repeated trials. Gradually the results get closer to the result that would exist if the ideal situation really did exist. Therefore, we will drop a single object many times. Each time we will make the object smaller and smaller. With smaller surface areas, that air friction plays a smaller role. Everything else will stay the same: The mass of the object, the height of the drop, the type of material dropped, the method of timing. We will plot the results of the acceleration each time. From the best fit curve we will be able to extrapolate the results if the surface area were zero (and the air friction were zero). Although we are still just imagining zero surface area, our results are going to be more valid than Galileos imagination because we have data to go along with it. Procedure: Read the whole procedure and decide how to create a table for ALL your data. Consider how Excel could help you calculating, plotting and extrapolating.

1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8)

Get a large sheet of paper. Record its area in m2. Hold the paper horizontally at a height of 1.92 meters (from 1 meter above the lab tables to the floor). Drop it so it falls with this horizontal orientation. Record the time of 3 drops. (retime any trial with significant problems such as collisions, etc) Calculate and record its acceleration due to gravity. Fold the paper in half, and record its area, record 3 drop times. Repeat the previous step for a total of 7-8 trials Plot your data. Extrapolate to find what the acceleration would be if the size were 0 m 2.

Lesson 6 Thought Experiments


Before We Begin: Todays Goal: The Big Idea: See video of cliff divers To understand what a though experiment is. We can SOMETIMES learn stuff just by imagination.

Galileo Galilei lived from 1564 to 1642. This is around the time of the Pilgrims setting up their colony. Galileo was very famous in his lifetime for astronomy. He was the first person to study the sky with a telescope. He discovered the first moons around a planet. These four large moons around Jupiter are called the Galilean moons for this reason. Galileo was also famous for his ability to reason and perform experiments. He may be more famous for his thought experiments than his real experiments. In a thought experiment, he just used his ability to reason to come up with what would happen. This is not the best scientific method, but it can be a useful way to prove some theories to be incorrect because they would come up with contradictory results One of the more famous examples of thought experiments was about falling objects. More exactly, it was about a heavy rock and a light rock ( a pebble). The predominant view of the day was that the heavy rock would fall faster than the light rock. Most people believed that all heavy objects fall faster than all lighter objects. In the first part of his thought experiement, Galileo thought about the two rocks tightly strapped together with rope. What would be the result? Galileo reasoned that a person with the predominant view could think of two possible outcomes: The big rock now either (1) falls faster than before because it is a more massive object or (2) falls slower than before because the slow-falling lighter rock slows the bigger rock. Therefore 2 contradictory results could be argued. In the second part of his thought experiment, Galileo thought about the two rocks tied loosely with a long rope that was always slack. Now what would be the result? Either (1) The rocks could somehow know that they were tied together as a single mass and fall faster or (2) The heavier rock knows that it was tied to a lighter mass and therefore fall slower. Therefore 2 contradictory results could be argued. Galileo saw that people who had the presupposition that heavy rocks fall faster than light rocks would come to contradictory results. In such cases, it is proper to conclude that the presupposition is incorrect. Galileo decided that the proper answer to each question should have been that all rocks fall the same. There is a legend that Galileo dropped different masses off the Leaning Tower of Pisa to show that all rocks fall the same. None of Galileos notes indicate he really did this. He probably didnt, but other early researchers did. Galileo proved his thought experiments to be true by performing experiments with balls rolling down ramps of various slopes. By rolling balls down ramps he approximated the falling of objects straight down. This is a good approximation because gravity is the driver of both motions. Galileo knew that light objects such a sheet of paper will fall slower than a rock. How would he have explained why we see objects around us fall at different rates? The answer is ___
See video of Apollo Astronaut, do book drop

Danger: Beware of Falling Cows Copyright 2007 The Associated Press. Nov 6 02:27 PM
MANSON, Wash. (AP) - Charles and Linda Everson were driving back to their hotel when their van was struck by falling 600-pound cow. The Eversons were unhurt but the cow, which had fallen off a cliff, had to be euthanized. The year-old cow fell about 200 feet from the cliff and landed on the hood of the couple's minivan, causing heavy damage. A Chelan County fire chief, Arnold Baker, said the couple missed being killed by a matter of inches in the accident Sunday on a highway near Manson. Everson didn't see the cow falling and didn't know what happened until afterward. He said he kept repeating: "I don't believe this. I don't believe this."

Activate Your Brain: 1. How long will it take a 50 pound ball of silly-putty to fall 84 feet? (See video)

3) Do review problems in the next homework assignment Before We Begin: Todays Goal: The Big Idea: Refer to the unit organizer. See videos of cars off cliffs To calculate the location where a car will land if it goes off a cliff. Vertical aspects of the problems are dealt with separately from the horizontal aspects.

1) To be projected horizontally means that it is initially moving only horizontally, but then it leaves the edge of a surface and becomes airborne and falls in an arcing path. Therefore, _____ = some value and ______ = 0. There are two aspects of this motion that you have to understand before you can make predictions. 2) The horizontal motion of a falling object does not affect the time of falling. This can be seen in the world famous Horizontal projectile demonstration 3) The act of falling does not affect the horizontal motion of an object (See the bomber picture, see the ballistics car)

Suppose the dark ball is dropping straight down and the light ball is simultaneously thrown horizontally with Vx=1 m/s. Note how the dark ball falls progressively farther each moment. Why is that? 4) Draw the positions of the light ball at t=1 s, 2 s, etc. 5) Draw the path of a horizontal projectile: 6) As time passes, Vy steadily increases 7) As time passes, Vx stays constant 8) This kind of motion is called _____________ 9) Label the range in the diagram:
