Unformatted text preview: bmarines use Doppler shifts (“pings”) to navigate and how they would distinguish another submarine moving from some large stationary rock Group 1: Explain how a speed gun works (or how you think it works) utilizing the physics we just discussed (the properties of light) and how a police man who is moving can still get an accurate measurement of your speed Group 2: Explain how a “Doppler Radar” works (or how you think it works) utilizing the physics we just discussed (the properties of light) for weather applications and how it can use the physics of Doppler shifts to find a tornado Group 3: Explain how submarines use Doppler shifts (“pings”) to navigate and how they would distinguish another submarine moving from some large stationary rock Extra Credit Opportunity Bring by next Monday a “real world” examples of applications in Bring everyday life of the properties of light we have discussed. Properties Properties 1) Light is a wave… 1) Light 2) …and a particle 3) Light is REALLY fast, but does have a finite speed 4) Doppler effect It must be something that we haven't already covered and it It must be explained clearly in “lay-man” terms. (Pretend you are explaining it to a kid in middle school) explaining One page in length (don't count the spaces you use to put your name on the page) (don't Size 14, Times New Roman, Standard Margins Due next Monday Worth two in-class quiz grades (they become 10/10)...
