Unit 9: Waves

Unit:  Waves

Sound and light transfer energy from one location to another as waves. Characteristics of waves include wavelength, amplitude, and frequency. Waves can combine with one another, bend around corners, reflect off surfaces, be absorbed by materials they enter, and change direction when entering a new material. All these effects vary with wavelength. Observable waves include mechanical and electromagnetic waves. Mechanical waves transport energy through a medium. Electromagnetic radiation is differentiated by wavelength or frequency, and includes radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, x-rays, and gamma rays. These wavelengths vary from radio waves (the longest) to gamma rays (the shortest). In empty space all electromagnetic waves move at the same speed, the “speed of light.”

Unit 8: Energy Unit

Unit 8:  Energy!!!!
           Short Writing for the Unit (Like a chapter from a book)              
                                                                                                                  
                                                         
                                                    
The total energy of the universe is constant; however, the total amount of energy available for useful transformation is almost always decreasing.  Energy can be converted from one form to another and move from one system to another.  Transformation of energy usually produces heat that spreads to cooler places by radiation, convection, or conduction.  Energy can be classified as potential or kinetic energy.  Potential energy is stored energy and includes chemical, gravitational, electrostatic, elastic and nuclear.  Kinetic energy is the energy of motion.  

STANDARD 4:  STUDENTS WILL UNDERSTAND TRANSFER AND CONSERVATION OF ENERGY.
Objective 1:  Determine kinetic and potential energy in a system.
Objective 2:  Describe conservation of energy in terms of systems.
Objective 3:  Describe common energy transformation and the effect on availability of energy.

Unit 7: Momentum and Impulse

Unit 7:  Momentum and Impulse

Monday January 23, 2016



Wednesday January 25, 2016


  • Online Lab Lab Sheet
  • Continue Paul Hewitt Momentum

Friday January 27, 2016

Tuesday January 31, 2016
  • EGG DROP DAY
  • Finish Paul Hewitt video






    • Momentum = Mass x Velocity
      • p = mv 
    • Impulse = change in Momentum = Force x time = mass x (change in velocity)
      • J =Ft = m(v-v.)
  • Conservation of Momentum:  Initial System Momentum = Final System Momentum
    • Pi = Pf
    • (initial)m1v1+m2v2=(final)m1v1+m2v2
