## Introduction to Projectile Motion

Articles, Blog 65 Commentsmr.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

## AP Physics C – Dynamics Review (Mechanics) – Newton’s 3 Laws, Friction, Equilibrium

Articles, Blog 15 Comments– 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

## Creating Circular Motion from Sine and Cosine Curves

Articles, Blog 4 CommentsMr. 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

## Point Particle & Rigid Object Collision – Conservation of Angular Momentum Demonstration & Problem

Articles, Blog 2 CommentsMr.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

## Common Point Particle Angular Momentum Triangle

Articles, Blog 1 CommentMr.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
