"Kinematics is simply - the study of motion..."
Finish Concept Map (if not completed yesterday)
2. Work period: Review Package (+ additional review) - TEST IS ON WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 28th
Generating Electricity in Sewers!
Today we are building speakers and then learning about Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction.
Transformers are used to step-up (increase) or step-down (decrease) voltage. They are extremely important in our everyday lives. They are used to step-up voltage at a power generating station so that electricity can travel long distances with very little energy loss (low current flow) to your neighbourhood and then is stepped back down so you can use it in your home at safe voltages and high current. They are used in your cell-phone and computer chargers as well - look at the back and you'll see. But...how do they work?
The following three downloads are in the package you were given in class, but are also available for download below.
Today we are finishing the work and lessons on Faraday's Law and Generators.
We are writing a quiz on the domain theory of magnetism, the right hand rules for electromagnetism and using the electromagnet equation to solve problems.
After the quiz, we are completing the lessons from yesterday and continuing our work with Faraday's Law.
