Analysis: Wave Energy Phenomena

In a wave energy can move from one place to another, however the actually matter particles will return to its original place (1). The waves however don’t go back to their original place but go to their desired location (2). The reason why the transport of matter doesn’t exist is because you would need other matter to move or other matter to have a force which would cause the other object to move (1). The differences between transverse and longitudinal […]

Lab Parts: Ball Toss & Fluid Resistance

Introduction In this experiment, a motion detector was used to collect distance, velocity, and acceleration data for different types of balls being thrown straight up in the air. Like a juggler who tosses a ball straight upward, each ball slows down on it’s path to maximum height, then begins to speed up on it’s way down. The concept is that there is a definite mathematical pattern to the changes in velocity, which will be reinforced by experimentation. Analysis (2) How […]
