Today we are starting the Dynamics unit with an introduction to Newton's first of three very important laws. Today's law is the Law of Inertia (Newton's First Law).
Examples of Inertia
The Amazing Egg Trick!...not really a trick...and maybe not totally amazing...but still cool.
What is Dynamics?
Today we are going to start the next unit: Dynamics - "the study of why things move." The title page and introductory powerpoint are included below. Watch the documentary on Newton as well.
We are also continuing with the work and review for the kinematics test tomorrow. Be sure to complete the yellow sheet of questions and the package with 4 additional problems.
Acceleration of Gravity Lesson and Work Period
Today we are doing a short lesson on the acceleration of gravity and then working on the kinematics problems that were handed out on Friday.
Today we are working on the kinematics problems (the hand-out with all the problems on it). You will use the kinematics equations to solve these problems.
