Re: Science Olympiad at Penn Invitational 2019

Circuit Lab : Holy crap, this one was rough. None of the material on the test was particularly difficult, but the two labs (both of which were tougher than any other I've ever seen) ensured that each team pairing would be split for a big chunk of the time given. My partner and I managed to place 4t...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C

Hey quick question, since in AP Physics 2 the convention for work they use is that work done by the surroundings on the system is positive. I was curious if for science olympiad, is that convention the same or is it the opposite and that work doe by the system on the surroundings would be considered...

Re: Fermi Questions C

Hey guys, I know that there is some tricky math on Fermi that I have been learning how to do so try doing this one without a calculator:
3^342
May seem hard but there are some tricks you can use to get a quick answer :)
