Physics I: Classical Mechanics

Physics I: Classical Mechanics

Practical Physics This website is for teachers of physics in schools and colleges. It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of physical concepts and processes. Some of the experiments can be used as starting-points for investigations or for enhancement activities. Many have links to carefully selected further reading and all include information and guidance for technicians. Physics is a practical science. Practical activities are not just motivational and fun: they can also sharpen students’ powers of observation, stimulate questions, and help develop new understanding and vocabulary. Good quality, appropriate physics experiments and investigations are the key to enhanced learning, and clarification and consolidation of theory. We have published a new set of resources to support the teaching of practical science for Key Stages 3-5.

I’ve not come up with any labs I really want us to do for Chapter 12, and with class cancelled next week (June 15) I’m not sure when we’ll get to do an entropy lab. The only lab I’ve thought of is to build an electric calorimeter and measure the specific heat of water, but that sounds like more effort than it is worth. I would like us to continue on the rocket experiment, now that the simulation seems to be working. Anyway, Chapter 12 homework, which we’ll try to have at least half done by Fri June 8, our next meeting: 12.P.40, 12.P.43, 12.P.48, 12.P.62, 12.P.63, 12.P.66, 12.P.68. Like this: Like Loading...

Biology | 7.012 Introduction to Biology, Fall 2004 Build an Atom - Phet Topics Atoms Atomic Structure Isotope Symbols Atomic Nuclei Description Build an atom out of protons, neutrons, and electrons, and see how the element, charge, and mass change. Then play a game to test your ideas! Sample Learning Goals Use the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons to draw a model of the atom, identify the element, and determine the mass and charge.Predict how addition or subtraction of a proton, neutron, or electron will change the element, the charge, and the mass.Use the element name, mass, and charge to determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons.Define proton, neutron, electron, atom, and ion.Generate an isotopic symbol for an atom, given the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

IMG 0797 Where We Work Page Content We know that there are more species in tropical regions and that undiscovered species are likely to be found in places that have been off-limits to exploration or that are very difficult to access. So in order to discover large numbers of species potentially new to science, we head to countries with poorly explored, remote, humid tropical mountains. In addition, unique not-yet-described species are likely to be found in habitats that require special adaptations to survive, such as areas with low oxygen levels (e.g. swamps) and limestone caves. To identify the best sites to explore, we start with consultations with expert scientists, who generally know which places have been explored and where the gaps in data are. We also carry out scientific priority-setting analyses, putting together the data we currently have on species diversity with factors that affect their distribution, such as the types of habitats where species discoveries have been made.
