Potential and Capacitance in Physics - Videos & Lessons In this chapter, you'll learn how an everyday item, like a battery, converts and stores electrical energy. Using easy-to-understand visuals, the instructor will explain the concept of electric potential, or how groups of tightly packed charged particles interact with each other to do work. You'll also find out how voltage is used to measure electric potential and how much work is accomplished by charged particles in an electrical circuit. Through the videos on capacitance, you can learn about the different types of electrical components that can store an electrical charge. Ohm's Law will be discussed, including the relationship shared by electrical current, resistance and voltage. When you've finished with the chapter, you should understand:
Rediscovering @CK12Foundation Flexbooks And More! A while back there was a push to move away from traditional textbooks and move to something more flexible and nimble. (Still true today!) Something that could adapt with the ever changing knowledge base educators and students could pull from along with being more personal.
Build-A-Body Overview Learn about the body's systems with this drag and drop game. Choose organs from the organ tray, and place them in their correct position within the body to create organ systems. Will computers replace teachers? There are some innovation and technology enthusiasts who claim that computer-based learning will soon replace teachers. Just take a look at some recent op-eds by Andy Kessler and Richard Galant. They point to the accessibility of information via the Internet and the recent advances in online instruction and adaptive learning as harbingers of teacher obsolescence. These assertions are alarming to those who advocate the importance of teachers, like Diane Ravitch and Wendy Kopp.

Speed & Stopping Distance of a Roller-Coaster - Physics - University of Wisconsin-Green Bay In this problem, you are first asked to find a speed of a roller-coaster when you are given information about how its height changes. If non-conservative forces are either known or small and if energy is converted from one form to another between the locations, then any time you relate speed and position of an object at two different points conservation of energy is the most direct way to understand the problem. In this case, you start out with stored gravitational potential energy and convert part of that energy to kinetic energy. In the second part of this problem, you are asked to find stopping force given stopping distance.
PanelPicker Modern teachers rely on various tools to engage with students and enhance learning. Technology supports education in many ways, but ed-tech is often difficult to manage within schools and across districts. Administrators constantly wonder if they are spending on the best products, but only teachers know what really works in their classrooms.
