• Angular Momentum

Angular velocity, with the addition of a product’s moment of inertia is what creates an angular momentum quantity (Bi 2014). Moving objects keep a constant velocity, however, if acted on by outside forces this would not occur. Say a moving object like, the planet Saturn keeps this constant speed, it thus keeps a constant momentum, since the system is conserved. This conserved system of the planet Saturn would be referred to as angular momentum, since Saturn rotates about an axis. Saturn is also known for it’s massive thunderstorms, which have created angular momentum changes to suppress the planet to cyclones. Saturn’s changing of angular momentum, comes from uprising thunderstorms, beta-drifting and it does not necessarily always have to produce cyclones. Now these cyclones on Saturn are not produced how…

• Essay On Figure Skating

knowledge of the relationship between body coordinates and movements/positions of figure skating. I will be investigating the relationship between the body’s initial and interim positions and the outcome of a figure skater’s trajectory during a jump as well as a figure skater’s angular momentum during counterclockwise rotational spins. A figure skater is trained to use a double axel, a jump with forward takeoff, with a split jump to create a parabolic leap in the air. A double axel contains…

• Experiment Lost Momentum

The graphs above demonstrate that there is a value, but theoretically this value should be zero. As demonstrated in Table 1, every trial lost momentum. As the formula for momentum is and the mass remained constant, the velocity must be the responsible factor. Additionally, the only the magnitude of is necessary to observe adherence to the conservation law. The conservation law states that should be equal to zero, and as this wasn’t observed in any trial, it can be said that the…

• Egg Drop Essay

every crevice imaginable to add even more absorption power to the device. In its final state, the device comprises itself of a Gatorade bottle with an inner chamber, cotton balls in the inner chamber and all around the exterior of the bottle, rice in between the inner and outer chamber of the Gatorade bottle, and pool noodles around the outside. Upon the device’s drop at seventy-five feet, the conclusion that the device would not work unmasks itself. Once my group discovers that the device…

• Investigative Experiment: The Law Of Conservation Of Momentum

Table of Contents Introduction 2 Method 3 Results 4 Discussion 6 Conclusion 7 Plagiarism Report 6 Introduction The law of Conservation of Momentum states that the total linear momentum of an isolated system remains constant. This law is based on Newton’s third law (If body A exerts a force on body B, body B will exert an equal force but opposite force on body A). Thus when objects collide or explode apart, equal forces are exerted on the objects but in the opposite direction. The time of…

• Duck Hunting: The Principle Of Conservation Of Momentum

principle of conservation of momentum. Despite the somewhat imposing name, this principle is actually quite intuitive in nature. To understand this principle, I utilize an example from my own life: duck hunting. While some may consider it a rather barbaric pastime, I rather enjoy the thrill of venturing into a marsh in the early hours of the morning and I love the satisfaction of dressing and cooking a prize. You know immediately when your shot is a successful one; a bird flying in one direction…

• Falling Egg Research Paper

it falls? First, there are many factors that affect the egg when it falls. The factors are momentum, air resistance, pressure, gravity, and angular momentum. The first factor is Momentum; it is the product of the mass and velocity of an object. “P” is the 3D vector stating the object’s momentum in 3 directions of 3D space. Where “V” is the 3D velocity vector giving the object’s rate of movement in every direction it goes. “M” is the object’s mass. The second factor is air resistance also known…

• The Zeeman Effect Essay

displays the splitting of spectral lines to represent the difference between normal and anomalous Zeeman Effect the arrows below show the splitting that should occur according to the theory of Lorentz. [5] The ‘normal’ Zeeman Effect occurs at a total spin of S=0, and between transition of atomic states. We use L-S coupling to give the total angular momentum of a state as the spin orbit coupling is weak in atoms with many electrons, the total angular moment um is given by: J= L+S…

• Gymnastics Essay

In gymnastics, the physics involved in energy, Newton’s Laws of Motion, and angular momentum each contribute immensely to being successful in the Olympics. Learning how to master these physical science concepts can aid in becoming a strong olympic gymnast. To begin, there is the running start; this is where energy plays a major role. During a gymnast’s running start for a vault, she gains kinetic energy, which is, simply put, the energy of motion. Looking at the equation for kinetic energy (KE =…
