* Activity 2.19   :   Working out potencial energy.                           ( 11/13/17   Monday )






          2.19.a        Potencial energy’s problems.

                             To calculate Potential energy you only have to multiply gravity, mass
                             and hight.   Gravity’s acceleration you know is 9.8m/s2 , mass must
                             come in kilograms and hight in meters.

                                                                        GPE = m.g.h


                     
                                      Now watch these problems and try to do the following doing 
                                      the same :




          Problem 1 :




  

           Problem 2 :





          Problem 3 :

         2.17.b    Read and check the following information. After that, use the formula to
                       work out the potential energy at the following wordings: (use a google docs).


                        1)  A stone falling from a building 250m high.

                        2)  A child of 50kg falling after jumping up until 0.6m high.

                        3)  A beisball falling after being thrown from 25m high.

Potential Energy is the stored energy of an object given its position relative to a body. Gravitational potential energy is one type of potential energy and is equal to the product of the object’s mass (m), the acceleration caused by gravity (g), and the object’s height (h) as distance from the surface of the ground (the body).

                                        

                                     

                        GPE = 3kg * 9.8m/s2 * 5m = 490J       (490 Joules ).

                 1.28.a    Copy these paragraphes at the paper given to you today :

                             1.   " Balanced forces are a consequence of the third Newton’s law or also called
                                  action-reaction law of motion. This law is used to explain how forces act when
                                  an objecte is in balance or EQUILIBRIUM and then the object remains in its place
                                  due to the action of several forces acting upon it. Like a lamp hanging from the 
                                  roof or a piece of wood floating on the sea ".

                              2.   " When two or even more forces acting on an object are equal in size but act in
                                    opposite directions, we say that they are balanced forces.
                                    If the forces on an object are balanced ( or if there are no forces acting on it ) 
                                    this is what happens " .  :

                                                     * An object that is not moving stays still.

                                                     * An object that is moving continues to move at the same speed
                                                        in the same direction.

                               floating on the sea and a box placed on a table and below each pic explain
                               how each object does not move or is in equilibrium. Use vectors and forces

         MALIEK’S WORK ( Click here and download a pdf with your work for today Monday ).


      You already know that forces are measured in NEWTONS. But today we are using the appropriate device to measure forces, like weight, using the DYNAMOMETER. It is like a spring with a scale given in newtons in which we can measure different objects’ weights. The more the object weights the more the spring inside stretches and more newtons are given onto the scale.



                                                         1.13.a.1  Data table for dynamometers. ( 10 points ).

   

                  Students use different kinds of dynamometers to weight several different amount of objects with different weights. They have dynamometers in grams, in newtons and in kilograms at their reach. Once they weight the same objects as much in grams as in newtons they take notes about them at the paper given. They get used to read the different scales dynamometers show.

* Activity 1.11  :  Vectorial and scalar magnitudes.                  ( 9/8/17   Friday )


1.11.a   Studying scalar and vectorial magnitudes  :     ( 10 points ).

        Magnitude is every property that can be messured, like speed, weight, acceleration, mass, density, electrical conductivity, velocity, force, capacity, volum, etc.

                             - Some magnitude only need a number or quantity to be defined like the capacity and volum a bottle has, like 30 oz, or 2 liters, etc.

                             - Another magnitudes, like forces, velocity, etc, need both a number and a direction or vector, because they need to be determined by a direction. We must indicate in which direction, using an arrow, it goes. For instance the velocity and acceleracion a car is having need a vector, but the speed does not because speed is only a number.

                                                                                MAGNITUDE

                                                                   Vectorial magnitude example.

                                    Reviewing activity 2 about drawing vectors and forces.  ( 5 points ).


          Speed has no direction while velocity does. For example, if I say that I’m running at 10 mph, I have given you my speed. If I say that I’m running 10 mph north, then I have given you my velocity.

           The short answer is that velocity is the speed with a direction, while speed does not have a direction. Speed is a scalar quantity -- it is the magnitude of the velocity. Speed is measured in units of distance divided by time, e.g. miles per hour, feet per second, meters per second, etc.
