Project idea[edit source]

Here' is png version of the diagram I need. On the filepage to that is a link to the file on commons. I suggest you name the new file Free_body1.svg and place it on commons. My physics students will be tasked with explaining the graph to you.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 17:55, 24 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Great job on w:Wikimedia Commons! See my comment at w:Talk:Inclined_plane#Replacement_of_Force_Diagram. Also, do you want me to add your Miraheze main-page image to your wikiversity userpage?--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 16:45, 27 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

-- Absolutely please add the Miraheze page! That would be tremendously helpful!

Possible graphics project.[edit source]

Your name came up in a discussion regarding images that appear on four foreign wikis. Interested?

Chapter 4 Synopsis / Overview & Potential Questions

 4.1 EARTH & SKY
 (Locating Places on Earth)

Q: What defines the location of the North and South Poles and the equator on planet Earth?
 a) The Earth’s speed of rotation around the sun b) The distance of the Earth to the Sun
 c) the gravitational pull of the moon d) Earth’s axis of rotation

Q: What direction does the Earth rotate
 a) East

Q: A “Great Circle” is a) An circle on the surface of a sphere whose center is at the center of the sphere.

Q: great circles passing perpendicular through the equator on a globe and used to help find coordinates on East are called 
a) Meridians

Q: The Prime Meridian passes through which city and is designated as what deg. a) Greenwich England / 0 deg.

Q: Starting at 0 degrees (Greenwich England) longitude is measured to what degrees east or west.
a) 180 deg.

Q: What is the name of the latitude designated 0 deg. 
a) The equator 
 Q: What is the latitude of the North Pole and South Pole respectively 
a) 90 deg N / 90 deg S

 (Locating Places in the Sky)

Q: Much like latitude and longitude astronomers use coordinates called ______ and to denote positions in the sky
a) declination / right ascension

Q: The North and South Poles on planet Earth are called ________ by astronomers who use their fixed positions in the sky to help determine the positions of celestial objects.
 a) Celestial Poles

Q: Declination is measured in the same way as longitude true or false
 a) False … Declination is measured the same way as latitude thus Polaris the star nearest the north celestial pole is at +90 degrees.

Q: The suns path is also called it’s 
 a) ecliptic

Q: Right ascension like longitude is based off of a point where the sun crosses the celestial equator, this point is called the ________ a) Vernal Equinox 

Q: Right Ascension also called (RA) can be expressed in degrees (angle) or in units of ______
 a) time

Q: The 360 degrees of RA that it takes to go around the celestial sphere is equal to how many hours
 a) 24 hours

Q) In regards to right ascension “RA 5h” is equal to how many degrees a) 75 degrees (Each 15 deg. or arc is equal to one hour
