Chemistry 1 – Students gathered data relating the number of gas particles to the pressure they exert. After collecting data groups drew a graphical model of the data on a whiteboard along with a particle diagram that represents a low and high pressure situation in this experiment.
Physics 1 – After experimenting with two objects interacting on a small scale on Friday we used Vernier Force Plates to up the scale a little bit. Using the force plates we were able to have two people interacting, colliding, pushing, etc. Now that we are all okay with what is happening, and understanding that what we are measuring is just one force (an interaction between two objects). That force is being felt by both objects, just in opposite directions. I like to refer to this as Newton’s Interaction Law (or as it has been called Newton’s 3rd Law).
Chemistry 2 – We started titrating household items. Today was spent getting things set up and figured out how titrating works.
