QUIZ SOLUTIONPart of the course is a group project in the computer lab. We will meet in SI-117A (Physics Dpt. Computer Lab) on:
We will learn to work with the state of the art software MathCad by solving Mechanics problems. You should save your work on the diskette. At the end of the project each student will give me the diskette with all the programs and a printout of the results.
- TU September 28Computer lab.#1: Mathcad Tutorial and Projectile Motion.
- TU October 26 Computer lab.#2: Circular Motion and Rolling. Here is an animation of rolling.
- TU November 23Computer lab.#3: Sliding on a Hemisphere without Friction.
- TU December 7Computer lab.#4: Pendulum Motion.
Some of you have signed for the writing version of Physics I which is called PHY243. The writing is graded as pass or fail. If you pass, the grade is determined by exams, quizzes, homework, labs as explained above. If you fail the writing component then you fail the course. You will write three essays:
- Essay #1 about 1000 words, due TU, September 28
- Essay #2 about 500 words, due TU, October 26
- Essay #3 about 500 words, due TU, November 23
