Ferdinand Corontini

PHY 1

Mostly administrative announcements.

Week 1 Notes (1/9/17-1/13/17)

free body diagrams, accelerated frames, kinetic and static friction

Basic equations

These notes talk about projectile motion in 3D, circular motion, and relative motion.

This covers projectile motion in 3D, circular motion, and relative motion.

Covers newtons laws of motion and new forces

Essentially an extensive equations sheet

Not that much happened this week since we are all prepping for exams

These notes focus on work, kinetic energy, and power

These notes cover two sections from the textbook on Kudu: Work and Kinetic Energy, and Potential Energy and Conservation of Energy. A lot of the computations draw from material in Math 32B, so review your math notes!

These notes cover basic units used in physics as well as some common prefixes and variables used to represent quantities like mass and time and general science terminology. There's also a short bit about vectors which draws mostly from Math 32A.

These notes discuss the difference between average and instantaneous velocity and acceleration, as well as the 5 essential kinematic equations.

These notes discuss kinematics in 2 and 3D, as well as circular motion. Projectile motion and associated equations are also discussed.

These notes introduce forces and and specifically what Newton thought about them.

Momentum, Impulse, Collisions

These notes expand a little more on Newton's Laws, talking about friction, drag force, banked and nonbanked curves, and terminal velocity.

These notes cover conservation of momentum and kinetic energy, and when the conservation equations apply in elastic and inelastic collisions between objects. Like in kinematics, momentum is split into components when working in multiple dimensions. Center of mass is also covered, albeit briefly, as is rocket propulsion.

Covers Energy, Momentum, and Collisions

Since we didn't really have lecture notes this week as we mostly focused on practice problems, this week's notes will include the equations to use to solve most of the practice problems.

These notes cover the rest of chapter 14, mainly discussing simple and physical pendulums. Then we jump into chapter 15 with mechanical waves, discussing mainly transverse waves.
