Class Assignment for Monday September 19, 2005: Confirm your proficiency with one dimensional
kinematics. You might consider the MCAT questions in one of the links provided elsewhere on this site (via Word document download).
In any case, the problems in the text should be adequate.
Briefly eview the trigonometry relations- Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines in the context of vectors (see Beuche or
other sources). I will apply these in solving relative motion problems like determining the wind correction angle in flying
an airplane at a constant true airspeed (speed relative to the air) while observing its track over the ground.
Laboratory #3 Assignment: Have fun with the interactive physics experiments on "ActivPhysics OnLine," an Addison-Wesley
website for "University Physics" (link below). Part 1: Mechanics section 1.1 (5 parts) might be instructive.
Plan ahead. Laboratory #4 on Projectile Motion will involve at least a virtual experiment (link below).
