Geometric Optics – PART 3 –Mirror Equation So now we seen all the different examples of concave mirrors. Before we go further, we should recap the basic rules. Please note this only applies to concave mirror Rule number 1: When the object is placed behind the focal point it is going to produce a real

let’s take a look at an example involving graphing motion and we’re going to start with this graph it is a graph of velocity versus time for some object notice that we’ve got the axes labeled where we’ve got time here and velocity here the object begins at four meters per second and the velocity

– Good morning. Today we’re going to review the dynamics portion of the AP Physics C Mechanics Curriculum. You know, Newtons three laws and friction and stuff. – Don’t say, “And stuff,” just say, “Newton’s laws and friction.” ♫ Flipping Physics – Billy, what is Newton’s First Law? – When viewed from an inertial reference

Mr. P: Good morning. Let’s start with a dot moving in the y-direction in simple harmonic motion, just like a vertical mass spring system. Flipping Physics If we set the dot in motion at a constant velocity to the right, Bo what sort of function does that create? Bo: That looks just like a sine

SucceedSchool.com. Learn to Succeed. Terminal Velocity. Terminal velocity is the maximum velocity a falling object can reache. Friction, usually in the form of air resistance, opposes its weight. We can also get terminal velocities as an object falls through any fluid other than air, with lower terminal velocities for more viscous fluid such as water,
