Here is what happened this week: I will add captions as I get time this week:
PhyFl18SS2.1 A Red Duet. The graph below is the slope (derivative) graph of the graph above. When you have a negative slope, you turn it into an upside down right triangle. When you have a positive slope you turn that into a right side up right triangle. Pick a color for all the negative slopes (velocities) and another color for all the positive slopes (velocities).
PhyFl18SS2.2 Here’s another Red Duet. Here we started with the velocity vs. time graph on bottom and from there we found the position vs. time by finding the areas (called integration) of the segments of the graph below.
PhyFl18SS2.3 we are doing the same thing here, but here the equations for integration are introduced.
PhyFl18SS2.4 Here is the symbols for integration and what each part of it means.
PhyFl18SS2.5 Here’s another example of integrals. Basically, taking the integral of a function is telling you how much area is accumulating as you go from left to right.
PhyFl18SS2.6 Good use of color.
PhyFl18SS2.7 Finger dance
PhyFl18SS2.9 Will add caption later
PhyFl18SS2.8 what showmen!
PhyFl18SS2.8b Finger Dancing with pearls.
PhyFl18SS2.10 Socrates –> Plato –> Aristotle –> Alexander the Great. Greatest Teacher student combo in history.
PhyFl18SS2.11 5 old dudes and a young grad student.
PhyFl18SS2.12 Will add caption later
PhyFl18SS2.13 good notes
PhyFl18SS2.14 A rabbit is made up of only four elements. See how easy it was back then. Chemistry must have been an “easy A” back then.
PhyFl18SS2.15 A famous painting of Copernicus. Notice his Heliocentric view of the universe is shown behind him.
PhyFl18SS2.16 Geocentric view of the universe. Thanks Aristotle for setting us back 2000 years.
PhyFl18SS2.17 Copernicus in the game “Assassin’s Creed”.
PhyFl18SS2.18 Leo’s main goal in life was to fly. Here he thinks about how he would accelerate towards the ground if he jumped off the Leaning Tower of Pisa. He was the first to try to quantify the acceleration due to the Earth’s pull. He was wrong, but at least he started thinking about it.
PhyFl18SS2.19 My favorite self drawing of Da Vinci.
PhyFl18SS2.20 Galileo’s proposed wings
PhyFl18SS2.21 Galileo’s wings. Not a big tat guy, but this one is awesome.
PhyFl18SS2.22 We had about 50 students in the room to see Dr. Nash.
PhyFl18SS2.23 Dr. Nash presenting. He’s got a big week this week with his big proof of concept.
PhyFl18SS2.24 Giovanni Bruno burning at the stake in 1600.
PhyFl18SS2.25 1604 was the beginning of Physics.
PhyFl18SS2.26 A young Galileo
PhyFl18SS2.27 Galileo’s finger on display at the Galileo Museum in Florence. There is a really interesting story to this.
PhyFl18SS2.28 Galileo recanting his beliefs in front of the Inquisition. It was either recant of burn at the stake like Bruno in 1600.
PhyFl18SS2.29 A very good recreation of Galileo’s ramp he used trying to determine acceleration due to the Earth’s pull. He added the bells in later trials.
PhyFl18SS2.30 Galileo’s bells
PhyFl18SS2.31 . . .
PhyFl18SS2.32 We will be rolling on Monday as well.
PhyFl18SS2.33 Friday night in the Physics building
PhyFl18SS2.34 A new classic photo with Einstein in the Physics building
