Unit 3 Notes
Day 6: Dec. 7
Day 5: Dec. 5 & 6
Test Review (Practice Test)
Day 4: Dec. 2
Discuss free-body diagrams for circular motion in small groups
Define centripetal acceleration and lecture on using vector addition to determine direction of change in velocity
Problem-solving with circular motion
Day 3: Nov. 30 & Dec. 1
Lab practical - connecting forces and projectiles
Intro circular motion
Day 2: Nov. 28 & 29
Conceptual questions, trajectories
Day 1: Nov. 21 & 22
Discuss Simulation results
Video analysis of projectile
Use an understanding of forces to analyze motion in 2 dimensions
Break up aspects of motion into two components and use to solve problems and make predictions for projectile motion or circular motion.
Draw a force diagram for object moving along a circular path. Determine direction of acceleration for an object in circular motion that is moving at a constant speed, speeding up, or slowing down. Make an argument against the existence of a "centrifugal force."
