Sample problems
1. A boats speed in still water is 20.0 km/h. If the boat is to travel directly across a river whose
current has a speed of 12.0 km/
Equations of motion
There are five equations of one-dimensional motion:
These equations apply only when acceleration is constant. If the acceleration changes over time
then these equations cannot be used.
Example questions:

Dynamics Review
Recall that dynamics is the study of why objects move rather than how they move. Objects move
as a result of forces applied to objects.

Abstract
The experiments, free fall and projectile, were performed in order to determine the
acceleration due to gravity (g) and the angle at which the maximum range of a projectile is
observed. Based on the free fall experimental data, the acceleration d

Abstract
Circuits are a power source that generates electricity. How much power a circuit generates (i.e.
voltage, current) and what prevents the charges from flowing (i.e. resistance) can be determined
via Ohms Law. Ohms Law predicts voltages, currents a
EXPERIMENT
STANDING WAVES ON A STRING
Introduction:
A wave is the propagation of a disturbance or energy. A wave is characterized by its
wavelength , the frequency of oscillation f (in Hz or 1/s = s1), and the wave speed v. These quantities
are related by
Abstract
In this experiment, the period of the pendulum was measured as the vertical axis was
constricted and the inclined angle increased by 5 degrees all the way to 85 degrees. At
lower inclined angle, it was found that the period did not change by a gr
