Demonstration: using a scale drawing to predict the time for a satellite close to the Earth. The results can later be compared...
Class practical: The experiment involves isolating and controlling one variable at a time, taking measurements carefully and...
Class practica: Students make a timer using a simple pendulum.
The Moon’s orbital period can be estimated by considering the Moon as a satellite of the Earth and using a scale drawing.
Isochronous oscillators, from the pendulum to the precise oscillations of a caesium atoms in an atomic clock, have an obvious...
To find the frequency you simply count the number of vibrations each second. An alternative way to do the counting is to find...
This episode discusses: linear and angular velocity; degrees and radians; and angular acceleration. And is accompanied by...
The period, or periodic time, of a periodic variation of a quantity is defined as the time interval between two successive...
In this activity students use the phyphox app to determine the gravitational field strength using a pendulum.
In this activity students use the phyphox app to determine the spring constant, k, using a mass-spring system.
