21st Century Science
SC.O.PII.2: Students will demonstrate knowledge, understanding, and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories, and models as delineated in the objectives. demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology, and the earth and space sciences. apply knowledge, understanding, and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.
SC.O.PII.2.1: apply graphical analysis to interpret motion in terms of position, velocity, acceleration, and time.
SC.O.PII.2.3: experimentally verify laws of motion including Newton?s Laws, Conservation of Momentum (linear and angular), and Conservation of Energy.
SC.O.PII.2.4: using knowledge of linear motion equations, synthesize concepts of rotational motion (e.g., angular speed and acceleration, centripetal acceleration, Newtonian gravitation, Kepler?s Laws, torque).
SC.O.PII.2.6: interpret and apply concepts of thermal physics (e.g., distinction of heat and temperature, thermal expansion, properties of Ideal Gases, Kinetic Theory, specific heat, and energy transfer).
SC.O.PII.2.7: deduce the relative values of electric force and field strength based on the magnitude of and the distance from the point charge (e.g., Coulomb?s Law and inverse square law).
SC.O.PII.2.8: construct, diagram and evaluate complex electrical circuits.
SC.O.PII.2.10: critique electromagnetic induction and evaluate its application to electric circuits and various devices.
SC.O.PII.2.12: apply knowledge of simple harmonic motion (e.g., springs, pendulums and other oscillating objects) to calculate the kinetic and potential energies of the oscillating system.
SC.O.PII.2.13: examine wave properties and their interactions (e.g., reflection, refraction, dispersion, total internal deflection, interference, diffraction, Doppler Shift, beats, and polarization).
SC.O.PII.2.14: evaluate the application of wave properties to the development of optical and acoustical devices.
SC.O.PII.2.16: examine evidence for the historical development of the quantum mechanical theory (e.g., Planck?s blackbody radiation, Einstein?s photoelectric effect, deBroglie?s duality).
SC.O.PII.2.17: calculate an atom?s binding energy as related to Einstein?s special theory of relativity, and interpret the nuclear forces present.
SC.O.PII.2.18: differentiate between stable and unstable nuclei, and if the nucleus is unstable predict the type(s) of nuclear decay.
