Physics 112- Summer 2010


Electrical and Magnetic Properties of Matter

Electricity= the movement of charged particles in a current, Insulator=material that does not conduct electricity, Ex. rubber, Conductor= material that conducts electricity, Ex. Copper, Semiconductor= inbetween a conductor and an insulator; can sometimes conduct electricity, Ex. silicon, Superconductors= conduct electricity very well; are able to conduct with a some type of voltage being applies to the material

Magnetism= how matter responds to a magnetic field, -Magnetism can depend on the temperature and state of the material, -There are certain materials that are not magnetic; gases, copper, plastics and aluminum

Fields and Forces

Force= the amount of attraction (or repulsion) between materials, -Opposites will attract each other, -Same will repel each other

Field= the area in which the electric field is producing the charged area, Lenz's Law= when a current in induced by something, it will oppose the change in the applied field

DC and AC circuits

Circuit= something that provides electricity to flow through, Current= the flow of electrical charge, Voltage= the amount of force in a current, Resistor=something that does not allow electrical current to flow through, Capacitor=part of a circuit which stores electrons which then flow through the circuit

Series Circuit=all components of a the circuit are connected to each other and there is only one path for the electrical current to travel though out the circuit

Parallel Circuit= there is more than one path for the electrical current to travel on

Ohm's Law= V= I x R= Voltage= Current x Resistance


= the forces that causes the interaction between charged particles; this occurs in an electromagnetic field

Elements of Modern Physics

Laser Surgery, LASER= Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, -Lasers control the way that atoms release photons, Types of Laser surgery, Laser Eye Surgery, Use to correct vision problems, -the laser is used to change the shape of the cornea, which changes the way it focuses vision on the back of the eye, Go to this link to see an animation of laser eye surgery being done.., Laser Hair Removal, Used to remove tumors and warts, Used to reduce the appearance of scars, Used to seal nerve endings after surgery


Effectively communicate qualitative and quantitative information orally and in writing

-This is evident through the project technical glogs and also through my weekly glogs.

Explain the application of fundamental physical properties to various physical phenonmena

**See the "outline" side of concept map and daily work on Eport.**

Apply appropriate problem solving techniques to practical and meaningful problems using graphical, mathematical, and written modeling tools.

Work effectively in collaborative groups

Worked with Quammer for project 1; Communicated with her via email and text message to make our coil guns as effective as possible and to create our tech glog and project document

Worked with Andrew Fischenberg for project 2: I was able to meet up with him to create our telescope, and we also worked together to create our tech glog

Worked with Andrew Fischenberg again for project 3: was able to meet him at the laser hair removal site where we were able to interview and see the lasers together. We then communicated via text message and email to create the power point slide show of our research
