mr.p: Good morning. Today we are going to begin learning about projectile motion. Here we go. Bo: Hey, guys. Billy: Hey, Bo. Bobby: Hi, Bo. ♫ (lyrics) Flipping Physics ♫ mr.p: Before today, we have analyzed many different examples of motion. Objects moving with a constant velocity, objects with a constant acceleration, both positive and

– 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. Bo, could you please read the problem and Bobby, could you please translate? “Flipping Physics” Intro I apologize for not wearing safety glasses while performing this demonstration. If this egregious oversight causes you emotional harm, I am sorry. Seriously, I should have worn safety glasses and it was asinine of me not

Mr.p: Good morning. In our previous lesson we used a wooden board mounted on a Lazy Susan to introduce the equation for the angular momentum of a point particle. “Flipping Physics” Intro Billy, please give us the equation for the angular momentum of a point particle. Billy: The angular momentum of a point particle equals
