Day 140: Gravitational Force vs. Distance

gravitysim'
College-Prep Physics: We were supposed to go out and explore pinhole cameras, but it was cloudy. So today we explored gravitational force with a sim from The Physics Classroom: http://bit.ly/gravitysim. Students are doing a similar analysis like they did with light intensity a few days ago.

DiodeSim
Conceptual Physics: I found a great circuit simulation which has diodes (PhET doesn’t have diodes): http://bit.ly/acdclab. Students explored diodes and AC circuits with this today. Hopefully it will allow them to understand diodes better and be able to come up with a draft of their modified bike light generator circuit. Handout here: DiodeCircuitSimLab2013
