Mar.8 

Mar.7 

Mar.6 
 PhysicsBowl 2003, problems 15,1013,2426,29,3738.

Mar.5 
 read the lab handout, extract/measure all the necessary data for our version of the Cavendish experiment; be ready to calculate G

Mar.2 
 complete and handin selfevaluations on the Interim Student Evaluation form

Feb.29 
 complete homework for Feb.14

Feb.27 

Feb.24 

Feb.22 
 complete the SHO (mass/spring) data analysis

Feb.21 
 append the new data to the pendulum macro; attempt to make (at least start) a SHO macro
 design a kinematics problems that is difficult (start with an easy one, hide a needed piece of information)
 complete the well solution analytically, program it into the calculator

Feb.15 
 design a kinematics problems that is difficult (start with an easy one, hide a needed piece of information)
 memorize our three trig identities

Feb.14 
 a stone is dropped into a well, a splash is heard 3.2s later. How deep is the well?

Feb.13 
 find an assumption made in a derivation of $$T=2\pi\sqrt{l/g}$$
 understand/modify the physica macro, where do we expect the breakdown of the above assumption to show up? what further experiments we could do to get data in this region?

Feb.10 
 HP35s small manual review (all); large manual: stats and equations

Feb.8 
 use units to derive $$T=T(l,m,g)$$ for a simple pendulum
 propose a method of estimating $$R_{_{\rm Earth}}$$

Feb.7
