I did not see any specifics related to linear motion. In our third project, the two gamma photons travel in a linear path 180 degrees apart from each other in different directions; but this is the only thing which I can think of.
I could not think of anything from this semester which would relate to this point. Unless part of the firing of the coil gun and how the bb moves would connect to this.
In the second week we also learned about fields and forces.
In the first couple weeks of class we learned of properties of matter such as charge.
We learned about charges in our sticky tape project and also in our coil gun project. We also learned about charge in circuits and about charge moving in magnets.
Through our telescope project we learned more about EMR and the 3 different models of light.
In week 6, we learned a whole bunch of new information on quantum atom, quantum physics. We also learned a bunch more on electromagnetic waves. Furthermore, I learned how physics ties in with PET scans and the nuclear physics associated with the scans, which was extremely interesting.
In week 7, I learned about many different components of hyperphysics (nuclear physics). By looking through the hyperphysics website, I learned about nuclear medicine, nuclear activity, and radioactivity. I also learned more about the matters and gases affecting global warming and our world.
In our first project, we used writing and a video to show some data which we collected about how far our coil guns shot, how long our gun's were charged, and some of the concepts behind our gun.
Doing the first project for this class, gave me the knowledge about how flash circuits work and how coil guns work with Lenz's law.
Doing the last project allowed me to relate physics to a real life medical machine, the PET scan. I learned how physics plays a role in the way the machine works and what it does in the body.
We used a lot of problem solving in building our coil guns and telescopes because if they weren't set up correctly they didn't work. By means of trial and error and using measurements; both projects were completed successfully.
The first project gave me the first opportunity to gather with my group and all put in the amount of work needed to properly complete our assignment. This also gave me the opportunity to discuss concepts we've learned with other people and make sure I'm on the right track.
Working on project 2, we were further able to come together as a team to research necessary physics concepts and build a telescope successfully.
For the third project, I worked with two new members. I got a long extremely well with both of them and with all of us contributing equal to our project, we were able to complete it successfully and gain a lot of new information out of it.
