Be Prepared

Be on time 7:40 am at Greyhound EntranceAs you get off the bus at the park, keep track of ticket(s) and equipment bag.Know when and where check-ins are. Plan to be there on time.Use your map. Plan what rides activities you will do 1st, 2nd, ....Turn in your labs and equipment bag as you get on the bus at 2:05pm.Be Prepared

Contact numbers of the physics teachers, phone vs. textPlease remember that you are a representative of your school at this event. Please act accordingly. The future of Physics Day at Six Flags for future CHS freshman physics students is in your hands. General Information

First Drop

Normal force vs Gravitational ForceSensation of Weight (Apparent Weight)

FGPEFNPSFGPEWeightless zone, well theres still weight but something is missing. . .

In order to feel weight there must be a "reaction" force.

Draw the force diagram for each situation, what forceis missing from each? What force is present in each?FGPEInitial oscillation, Maximum oscillation

Period (T): Time passing for one revolution is called period. The unit of period is second.

Frequency (f): Number of revolutions per one second. The unit of frequency is 1/second.

Tangential speed = distance traveled in a given time interval

Angular speed = number of revolutions in a given time interval

Tangential speed & Angular speed

Its all how you see it (or measure it), lets watch:Frame of reference
