# Bridges

Bridges come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and lengths and are found all over the world. It is important that bridges are strong so they are safe to cross. Design and build a your own model bridge. Test your bridge for strength using a force sensor that measures how hard you pull on your bridge. By observing a graph of the force, determine the amount of force needed to make your bridge collapse. (less)

# Ceiling Bounce Model

This simulation shows a ball launched by a spring-gun in a building ... (more)

This simulation shows a ball launched by a spring-gun in a building with a very high ceiling. The student's task is to calculate an initial velocity so that the ball barely touches the 80-foot ceiling. Students can test their answers by setting the initial velocity on the simulation, then watch the ball's path. Graphs of position vs. time or velocity vs. time may be turned on to view the ball's motion as a function of time. <i>Editor's Note: This model is especially helpful for visualizing the relationship between the one-dimensional motion of this example and its graph, as it displays the ball continuously bouncing at constant velocity in a straight line from floor to ceiling. There is no horizontal displacement. For students who need help determining time of flight and peak height, <b>SEE ANNOTATIONS</b> for an editor-recommended tutorial.</i> This item was created with Easy Java Simulations (EJS), a modeling tool that allows users without formal programming experience to generate computer models and simulations. To run the simulation, simply click the Java Archive file below. To modify or customize the model, <b><i>See Related Materials</b></i>for detailed instructions on installing and running the EJS Modeling and Authoring Tool. (less)

# Investigating the effectiveness of the tutorials in introductory physics in multiple instructional settings

This paper examines the educational impact of the implementation of the tutorial ... (more)

This paper examines the educational impact of the implementation of the tutorial activity “Changes in Energy and Momentum” from The Tutorials in Introductory Physics in five different instructional settings. These settings include (1) a completely computer-based learning environment and (2) use of cooperative learning groups with varying levels of instructor support. Pre- and post-tests provide evidence that a computer-based implementation falls significantly short of classroom implementations which involve both collaborative learning groups and interactions with a teaching assistance. Other findings provide insight into the importance of certain elements of instructor training and the appropriate use of the tutorial as an initial introduction to a new concept. (less)

This short video shows the impulsive force of a tennis ball hitting a hard surface. When viewed in stepped motion, it can also illustrate the transfer of energy between tennis ball and floor as the ball flattens out. It may be run as a simple video in grades 6-10, and also used for computer analysis in introductory physics classrooms. The video is 12 frames in length and may be viewed in step motion or real-time. Position and time data may be measured and collected by using video-analysis software. This item is part of a larger collection of short physics videos developed by the Rochester Institute of Technology Live Photo Physics Project. (less)

# Matter & Interactions Practice Problems: The Momentum Principle: Impulse and Momentum Change

This page contains a set of problems that supplement Chapter 2 on ... (more)

This page contains a set of problems that supplement Chapter 2 on the Momentum Principle, in the introductory textbook <i>Matter and Interactions</i> by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood. Topics include impulse, applying the Momentum Principle, conservation of momentum, and collisions. The author integrates modern physics with problems related to the impulse required to accelerate a proton and Rutherford scattering. Each problem can be viewed separately, with solutions, or downloaded as a pdf file. The site includes videos showing solutions to many of the problems. These can be followed with RSS or as podcasts from iTunes. <u>Instructors are encouraged to submit their own problems and solutions to the web site.</u> Problems must be submitted in LaTeX format; the web site provides ample support for this process. <b>SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE</b> to link to an article discussing the Matter and Interactions approach in detail.

# Naive Room Response Deconvolution

ELEC 301 project by William Howison, Chris Lamontagne, Bryce Luna, and David Newell. Given the output of a system and the system characteristics we can determine the input. We will determine the system characteristics of two rooms by playing an (approximate) impulse and recording the impulse response, and then we will play music into the same rooms and record the output. Using MATLAB we will deconvolve the output with the system response to determine a rough approximation of the input. (less)

This website contains a series of peer instruction problems on momentum and energy, designed to be solved in a classroom setting. The problems are presented with a qualitative question (usually multiple choice) that is carefully constructed to engage student difficulties with fundamental concepts. Students consider the problem individually and contribute their answers using personal response systems (clickers). Students then confer with their cooperative groups and vote again on the correct response. Topics covered include elastic collisions, inelastic collisions, impulse, momentum, work-energy theorem, and conservation of energy. This problem set is part of the Physics Suite collection, containing sample problems, peer instruction problems, and alternative homework sets. (less)
