It may not seem all that exciting, but it is absolutely fundamental. If you can understand this piece of physics, you are well on your way to mastering much of what follows in your course. This interactive allows you to play with the classic problem of "the Brick". Use it to develop your intuition. Analyze the velocity vs. time graph and the acceleration and velocity vectors for the brick and describe the influence of the parameters. The Lab will be graded based upon the appropriate use of the language of physics to describe the data recorded. 1. (4 points) The bars representing gravitational potential energy and mechanical energy will increase when you increase the angle. Why? (use the language of physics) 2. (4 points) The View Vectors panel allows you to select the quantities displayed in the picture area of the screen. Select each component individually and play the the picture area of the screen....
