What do the two things tell you? (see p 4 and 5) (2 Pt)
A measurement statement alway
Complete your reading assignment for week 5 (Chapter 5: Wave Motions and Sound) and solve the ("Parallel Exercises, Group B") problems below: 1. A water wave has a frequency of 6 Hz and a wavelength of 3 m. (a) What is the period of these waves? (b) What
1. (a) What is the speed of light while traveling through a vacuum? C=3x10^8m/s (b) While traveling through air at 30 Celsius degrees? V=(3x10^8m/s)/(1.00026)=2.9992x10^8m/s (c) While traveling through air at 0 Celsius degrees? V=(3x10^8)/(1.00029)=2.9991

Momentum
We will use this experiment to explore momentum in one dimension. The simulation
replicates an air track on which two carts can move without any friction. Take a few
minutes to investigate the simulation and become familiar with its

Reflection and Refraction of Light
In this activity, the properties of reflection and refraction of light will be explored. The
simulation shows the light rays as they are incident on a medium interface (incident ray),
the reflected from the
Physics Lab 5
The photoelectric effect
This lab will investigate the photoelectric effect. The photoelectric effect is the emission
of electrons from a surface when illuminated with light of a certain frequency. The first
insight to understanding this phe

Sound Waves
We will use this experiment to explore sound waves. The simulation replicates a sound
source and allows the visualization of the emitted sound waves. You can change the
frequency and/or amplitude of the sound, and enable/disable
1)A] T=1/frequency
=1/6=0.167s
[B] velocity=(wavelength)(frequency)
=3m*6Hz=18m/s
7)divide the time by 2 to account for trip there and back
then (velocity)(time)=distance
1530m/s*1.125s=1721.25m
9)Vtp(m/s)=V0+(0.600m/s/C)(Tp)
=331m/s+(0.600m/s/0C)(20C)
=3
12) 11000m/s=xtime to travel 380000km
11000m/s(1km=1000m)=11km/s
(380000km)/(11km/s)=34545.4545s
17)a)v=at using a to equal free fall acceleration
v=(9.8m/s2)(2.5s)
9.8*4m/s2*s
24.5m*s/s*s
24.5m/s
b)v average = vf+vi/2
=(24.5m/s+0m/s)/2
=12.25m/s
c)d=1/2a
Complete your reading assignment for week 3 (Chapter 3, Energy) and solve the "Parallel Exercises, Group B") problems below: 1 How much work is done when a force of 800.0 N is exerted while pushing a crate across a level floor for a distance of 1.5 m? 2.
2. Density = mass/volume
39.5g/5.0cm3 = 7.9g/cm3
3. Mass of copper = 8.96 g/cm3
8.96 g/cm3 X 10 cm3 = 89.6 g/cm3
4. Volume = 5000g/ 0.92 g/cm3 = 5400 cm3
5. Density = 51.5g/50.0 cm3=1.03 g/cm3
That matches the density of Seawater according to Table 1.3
