# Day 96: Angular Momentum & Average Velocity

Today, I was chaperoning a field trip so I missed most of my classes.

AP Physics: Angular Momentum Quiz

Students took a quiz on angular momentum, then worked on finishing yesterday’s lab. One of the problems is based on a story that before jumping a motorcycle over the Snake River Canyon, Evel Knievel said his biggest fear was accidentally hitting the brakes in mid-air. I was back in time for 4th hour, so I showed students a demo of the problem using an RC motorcycle.

Physical Science: Average Velocity

Students worked on some problems interpreting position vs. time graphs. One of the questions asks them to invent average velocity by coming up with multiple ways to define the average velocity, then use each approach to make a prediction and decide which definition is the most useful.

I am not positive where you are getting your info, but great topic. I must spend a while studying more or working out more. Thank you for magnificent info I was on the lookout for this info for my mission.

• Do you mean the Evel Knievil story? I first heard it from another physics teacher at a workshop and did a little reading up on the jump. Good luck to you!

You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I to find this topic to be actually one thing that I believe I might by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely vast for me. I’m having a look ahead to your subsequent put up, I’ll try to get the cling of it!

• Last year was my first time teaching much circular motion; I agree this topic and physics in general can be very complex! Feel free to contact me. I’m happy to share what I know and resources I’ve found.
