The Internet resources provided at our site allow you access to curriculum-specific help which will assist you in the learning of physics. Proper and effective utilization of these resources will enhance your learning, reduce your stress, and improve your grade. The links below will allow you to navigate to key areas of our Web site which offer instructional assistance and other course-relevant information.

 

Specific Assistance with Past Units

Click the unit titles below to navigate directly to the desired unit:

| 1-Dimensional Motion | Newton's Laws | Vectors and Projectiles | Equilibrium and Inclined Planes | Momentum | Work, Power, and Energy | Circular, Satellite and Rotational Motion | Special Relativity | Static Electricity | Current Electricity | Waves | Sound and Music | Light and Color | Reflection | Refraction |

 

Unit 3: Vectors and Projectiles

  • Vector Direction - an illustration of how the direction of a vector can be determined from a scaled vector diagram; includes online solutions to pp. 3-4 of the unit packet.
  • Vector Addition - an illustration of how to add two or more vectors using the head-to-tail addition method; includes online solutions to pp. 9-10 of the unit packet.
  • River Boat Problems - an online animation and accompanying discussion of the motion of a river boat in the presence of a current.
  • Parabolic Motion - an online animation which explains why the trajectory of a projectile is parabolic.
  • The Monkey and The Zookeeper - an online animation of that popular demonstration; if you thought the demonstration had a five-star rating, then you should see the animation.
  • Horizontally Launched Projectiles - an online animation and a critical discussion of the conceptual nature of a projectile launched horizontally from an elevated position.
  • Non-Horizontally Launched Projectiles - an online animation and a critical discussion of the conceptual nature of a projectile launched at an angle to the horizontal.
  • The Plane and The Package - an online animation and accompanying discussion that parallels the in class discussion of the laser disc segment.
  • The Truck and The Ball - an online animation and accompanying discussion that parallels the in class discussion of the laser disc segment about the "snowmobile and the flare."
  • Direction of a Vector, Adding Vectors, and Resolving Vectors - check out Lesson 1 of Unit 3 at The Physics Classroom.
  • The Conceptual and Numerical Nature of Projectiles - check out Lesson 2 of Unit 3 at The Physics Classroom.
  • Solving Horizontally Launched Projectile Problems - see online lesson with example at The Physics Classroom.
  • Solving Non-Horizontally Launched Projectile Problems - see online lesson with example at The Physics Classroom.
