## M 28 August 2017 (UTC)[edit]Showed card game. Introduced Studyguide. Did first quiz on motion. Don't sweat these calculations if you can't do them. You have other ways to succeed in this class. ## T 29 August 2017 (UTC)[edit]Attendance policy: Allowed to miss 15 days without penalty.
and D is the days that you attend, OR 55 if you attend more than 55 days.
## T 5 September 2017 Syllabus[edit]Test prep: Questions 1-14 of second quiz Special:Permalink/1415990 has been discussed. (quiz called "velocity and acceleration"

## Summary of transcript[edit]1 Newtwon wrote in code. Much of of his personal writings were never really understood as late as 1937. 2 3 4 5 An apple speeds up as it falls. At every instant in time it seems to have a certain speed. How do you mathematically describe this "instantaneous" velocity? when the two times are nearly the same.

- PhET curve-fitting and PhEt least-squares-regression
Procedure: - Measure distance "as crow flies" for v = 1000 and 4000 m/s.
- Predict distance for v=2000. Make a sketch showing how a graph and similar triangles would permit you to find a formula. You can also get the formula by something called Regression_analysis
- Measure and calculate Big/Small and also percent error. The latter is (Measured−True)/True. You can report Big/Small as off by a factor of .... For small errors (less than about 10% or so, they essentially give the same information).
- Fit your three points to a parabola. It's best not to use Excel curve fit. There is an Excel extension, but it is more convenient to search the internet for "regression" fitting.
- Now use your parabola to predict the distance for v=3000. Measure and compare as before.
We collected this data (USING A REDUCED IMAGE ON THE SCREEN): initial speed DISTANCE m/s CM 1000 7.2 4000 36.9 2000 12.4 3000 19.9 ## Mon 9 Oct[edit]- #Newton's_cannon_alarm_clock

- Between 1 and 2, and going down from the first row I get:

## 25 October Lab on finding slopes[edit]This lab is in "Public Domain Format" with individual reports. - Verify and compare these claims:
- nationalgeographi.com (google) Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880.
- Summary of findings - Muller (berkeleyearth.org) The analysis shows that the rise in average world land temperature globe is approximately 1.5 degrees C in the past 250 years, and about 0.9 degrees in the past 50 years.
- Wikipedia:Global warming
- Translate this into degrees per mile here in Ohio, or degrees per day here in the spring or fall.
- Groundwater temperature Toledo to Cincinnati about 1C per 20 miles.

## Advanced curve fitting with Newton's cannon[edit]- Goal: Find the so-called "parabolic" curve File:Kepler_orbits.svg. Or more precisely, be able to predict periods for near-parabolic ellipses by extraplating. Let y=1/t, where t is the time to crash, and do a fit for y=y(v), where v is the initial speed. Data

- w:Saros_(astronomy) is a misnomer.
- Eclipse season lasts about a month-typically get 1 or 2 solar and 1 or 2 lunar eclipses.
