Students will work in groups to develop models of the physical systems described in each project. Students will develop a solution to the proposed problem, which include both predictions and explanations of those predictions. Students are expected to develop these solutions in their groups and ensure that each member of the group understands the process, concepts, and results that are developed for each project. … text/html 2022-01-18T02:07:16+00:00 pwirving (pwirving@undisclosed.example.com) 183_projects:problem8_fall2021_b http://msuperl.org/wikis/pcubed/doku.php?id=183_projects:problem8_fall2021_b&rev=1642489636&do=diff Project 8 A: Post-Apocalypse Now text/html 2022-01-18T02:06:24+00:00 pwirving (pwirving@undisclosed.example.com) 183_projects:problem7_fall2021_b http://msuperl.org/wikis/pcubed/doku.php?id=183_projects:problem7_fall2021_b&rev=1642489584&do=diff text/html 2022-01-18T02:05:52+00:00 pwirving (pwirving@undisclosed.example.com) 183_projects:problem6hh_fall2021_b http://msuperl.org/wikis/pcubed/doku.php?id=183_projects:problem6hh_fall2021_b&rev=1642489552&do=diff Project 6: Part A: The Overlook Hotel text/html 2022-01-18T02:05:21+00:00 pwirving (pwirving@undisclosed.example.com) 183_projects:problem5_fall2021_b http://msuperl.org/wikis/pcubed/doku.php?id=183_projects:problem5_fall2021_b&rev=1642489521&do=diff Project 5: Part A: Escape from Korath Part 2 text/html 2022-01-18T02:04:30+00:00 pwirving (pwirving@undisclosed.example.com) 183_projects:problem4_fall2021b http://msuperl.org/wikis/pcubed/doku.php?id=183_projects:problem4_fall2021b&rev=1642489470&do=diff Project 4: Escape from Korath Part 1 text/html 2022-01-18T02:04:02+00:00 pwirving (pwirving@undisclosed.example.com) 183_projects:problem2_fall2021b http://msuperl.org/wikis/pcubed/doku.php?id=183_projects:problem2_fall2021b&rev=1642489442&do=diff Project 3: Part A: Geostationary orbit </WRAP> text/html 2022-01-17T12:51:59+00:00 pwirving (pwirving@undisclosed.example.com) 183_notes:constantf http://msuperl.org/wikis/pcubed/doku.php?id=183_notes:constantf&rev=1642441919&do=diff Section 2.5 in Matter and Interactions (4th edition) Constant Force Motion You read previously how to (separately) predict the final momentum and final location of a system.
