1: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
1: Investigate and analyze, based on evidence obtained through observation or experimental design, the motion of an object using both graphical and mathematical models (e.g., creating or interpreting graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration versus time graphs for one- and two-dimensional motion; solving problems using kinematic equations for the case of constant acceleration) that may include descriptors such as position, distance traveled, displacement, speed, velocity, and acceleration.
Distance-Time and Velocity-Time Graphs
2: Identify external forces acting on a system and apply Newton’s laws graphically by using models such as free-body diagrams to explain how the motion of an object is affected, ranging from simple to complex, and including circular motion.
2.a: Use mathematical computations to derive simple equations of motion for various systems using Newton’s second law.
Fan Cart Physics
2.b: Use mathematical computations to explain the nature of forces (e.g., tension, friction, normal) related to Newton’s second and third laws.
Fan Cart Physics
4: Identify and analyze forces responsible for changes in rotational motion and develop an understanding of the effect of rotational inertia on the motion of a rotating object (e.g., merry-go-round, spinning toy, spinning figure skater, stellar collapse [supernova], rapidly spinning pulsar)
Inclined Plane - Rolling Objects
Torque and Moment of Inertia
6: Investigate collisions, both elastic and inelastic, to evaluate the effects on momentum and energy conservation.
3: Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
8: Investigate the nature of wave behavior to illustrate the concept of the superposition principle responsible for wave patterns, constructive and destructive interference, and standing waves (e.g., organ pipes, tuned exhaust systems).
8.a: Predict and explore how wave behavior is applied to scientific phenomena such as the Doppler effect and Sound Navigation and Ranging (SONAR).
12: Use the principles of Ohm’s and Kirchhoff’s laws to design, construct, and analyze combination circuits using typical components (e.g., resistors, capacitors, diodes, sources of power).
