Day 146: Size, Distance, and Eclipses


College-Prep Physics: How can the moon eclipse the sun when the moon is so much smaller? Students investigated the relationship between size and distance for different objects when they have the same apparent size. Some chose to eye-ball it. Others decided to use their phones. Handout is here: Size Distance Ratio LAB 2013
