Vocabulary Sheets DueSept. 24

MondaySept. 8

Momentump = mvp = momentum (kgm/s)m = mass (kilograms, kg)v = velocity (meters/second, m/s)Momentum = amount of motionExample:A superhero of mass 75 kg is moving at 65 m/s.

Find the momentum of our man in tights.Find the velocity at which a freight train of mass 200,000 kg has the same momentum.

ImpulseI = FtI = impulseF = force (Newtons, N)t = change in time (seconds, s)Thanks Mr. NewtonImpulse is change in momentum

As Seen in Action Comics #13Superman stops a locomotive.

A 200,000kg train is moving at 15 m/s. After Superman flies into it, the train is moving at 0 m/s.

What impulse did Superman deliver to the train?

If Superman and the train were in contact for 2 seconds, what average force did he exert?

What was the average acceleration of the train during its contact with Superman?

Energy Super HeroesProjects due September 24

You must work at home on these. Theres not enough class time.

This week:1. Super power2. Name & origin story3. List of concepts your hero can demonstrate.

Energy Super HeroesPresentations start on Sept. 24Format:Slide show & speech VideoPoster presentationOthers?Image: http://www.coverbrowser.com/covers/action-comics

Rubric: Super Hero ProjectWeek 2

Superhero Energy ProjectDue Monday, September 15 by email or hard copy in class.From kinetic energy, potential energy, and conservation of energy, write 1 problem at minimum.From thermal energy, thermodynamics, and specific heat, write 1 problem at minimum.From momentum, impulse, and conservation of momentum, write 1 problem at minimum.Looking forward and due on Friday, Sept. 19: From any of the above topics, write 2 additional problems.

FridaySept. 12

How Fastv2 = 2ghVelocity squared equals two times acceleration due to gravity times heightNote: How fast doesnt care how heavy.

ImpulseI = FtI = impulseF = force (Newtons, N)t = change in time (seconds, s)Thanks Mr. NewtonImpulse is change in momentum

Terminal VelocityThe upper limit of how fast.How fast? Skydiver with a semi-closed parachute: 195 km/h (120 mph)World record human freefall speed is 988 km/h (614 mph)Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terminal_velocityIt happens when your weight is exactly balanced by an upward force called drag.How long? About 15 seconds

P=mv75kg * 35 m/s > 4875 kgm/sV=p/m4875 kgm/s / 200,000 kg > 0.02 m/sFt = p = mv(f) mv(i) = m(vf vi) = 75kg (0 15 m/s) = -1125 kg m/sFt = p > F = p / t = -1125 kg m/s / 2 s = -562 NF = ma > a = F/m = -562 N / 200,000kg = 0.00281 m2/s2
