Re: Simple Machines B/Compound Machines C

Thanks so much, guys. I remember solving it twice and getting something around there the first time but thinking that was too shallow of an angle if that much of the input work was converted to friction.[/quote] Yeah, the same thing happened to us on the test at Dodgen; we spent 10 minutes working o...

Re: Simple Machines B/Compound Machines C

Just a question I came across earlier that I'm not quite sure about. It went something like this... "A box is placed on top of an inclined plane. The slope of the inclined plane is gradually raised until the box begins to fall down the inclined plane. If the friction coefficient is 0.4121 (I t...

Re: Wheeled Vehicle B

In practice a low score for our team is usually around 4960 and more common is 4970. At competition I would expect, worst possible scenario, for our score to be 4950. Do you think we have a good shot at placing at Nationals?

Re: Crave the Wave B

Anyone going to Nationals, do you think studying interferometers might be a subject covered there? I've done some research on it and unfortunately there's so much available to learn in physics but only so much that the test is going to cover. For some reason I have an odd feeling that the hands-on p...
