Of the important personality traits and habits of good scientists which the class has identified,
which are also good traits or habits for Christians to have?
Why do you think it is that many of the desirable traits of scientists and Christians are simila
I do not think that all scientists have the personality traits that we came up with last week. Take Dr.
Andrew Wakefield for example. This is the doctor who falsely claimed that vaccinations cause autism in
children. Scientists have the trust and faith of

A common stereotype of scientists is the mad scientist whose entire life revolves around his
research. Often stereotypes arise out of generalities about their subjects as a group. Do you think
this part of the mad scientist stereotype is accurate, i.e. do
Since I am a transfer student, I did not have the opportunity to take the strength finder test at freshmen
orientation. However, I think that I have a pretty good idea of what my top five strengths are. I think my
strengths are:
1) Perseverance

1. A car slows down from 35 m/s to 10 m/s. It travels 198 m during this time. Find the magnitude
of the cars deceleration, assuming it is constant.
Know: v0 = 35 m/s, v = 10 m/s, x = 198 m, x0 = 0. Unknown: a. Use the equation
to get
= 2.84 m/s2.

Projectile Motion
Motion can be separated into x and y components. Each component is then treated by itself.
Usually its the y-direction which determines the time of flight. How far the projectile goes

Centripetal Acceleration and Centripetal Force
1. A point on a wheel rotating at 5.00 rev/s is located 0.200 m from the axis. What is the
centripetal acceleration?
- For centripetal acceleration, a = v2/r.
- You are given r = 0.200 m.
- v = 2r/T
