Class, I have chosen to talk about the application of a radar gun . Radar stands for radio detection and ranging. It is a low-frequency form of light that bounces of of something and returns to the object. “Radio waves all travel at the same speed; 186,000 miles per second (the speed of light) or about one foot in a billionth of a second. So, first measure the time for the wave to go from the radar gun to the ball and back. Then multiply the time by the speed of the wave to find the distance to the ball and back to the gun. Divide by two and you have the distance to the ball.” ( ) The use of the radar gun can be used for multiple diferent things, baseball, police, and anything

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
