(carefully) the Suggestions for Making Measurements documentRead
(carefully) the Student Introduction and Rider Responsibilities
document Read (carefully) each of your packets before Friday.Bring
a picture ID so that you can check out a data collection vest Dress
appropriately for the weather (55-74 F)Arrive with pen/pencil, all
packets with your name on them, lunch or lunch money if needed
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

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
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

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,
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
Angular speed = number of revolutions in a given time
Tangential speed & Angular speed
