    My creative project focused on understanding the role of physics in the sports of halfpipe snowboarding. My overall research question focused on how physics influence this sport. In my project, I explored the fundamental concepts of physics which influence this sport, and how amateurs can benefit by improving their performance through the understanding of these basics ideas. The internet revolution has made educational resources accessible, however most of these resources are filled with scientific jargon which discourages most common people from using these resources since they are unable to follow the scientific terminologies. The significance of my project is to bring the ‘jargon-filled’ physics concepts to the public to make the sport of…

    My earliest memories involve my father talking joyously about the paper he was working on to my mother. In the years to follow I was included into these conversations, minimally at first, but soon I would be receiving most of it. To my pleasure once I began homeschooling I was almost instantly enrolled in an introductory mechanics class with some laboratory work. Although this class was incredibly fun and intriguing, it was not until I took my first proper physics class with Professor Walter…

    Whether it's obvious or unnoticeable, almost everything in the world involves mathematics in some way, shape, or form. Actions, objects, and even mindsets are all connected to math. All sports include hidden mathematical and/or scientific principles and laws that explain the actions that occur while playing. Soccer is one of the many sports that consists of mathematical and scientific laws that prove actions and measurements used in the game. Soccer, like any sport, is ruled by the laws…

    second photo is used to show the moment of contact which is what I am talking about). In terms of the physics in the photo. The focus of this paper will be on the energy transfer from the bat to the ball, which causes the ball to reverse directions, increase velocity, and create a launch angle to potentially be a homerun. Physics in baseball is very complicated, where there are many things before during and after the swing occur, but the focus will be the moment of impact in order to stay…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcmF5lDL8MM Have you ever been to an amusement park and wondered how a rollercoaster goes around the loop of the track? Well I sure have, this is all due to centripetal force. This is a force that acts on a body moving in a circular path and is directed toward the center around which the body is moving. The curves of these loops on rollercoasters resemble the curves of a circle. The coaster is continuously changing its direction while…

    The thermal conductivity constant of the material (k) is glass, which found in the physics textbook is .80 J/smC° (Cutnell, 2012). Using a meter ruler, I measured the length of my window as 1.70 m and the width as 1.10 m. When multiplying these two values to find the Area (A), the value calculated was 1.87 m2. According to the Accuweather.com, choosing a random date of December 16th, the average outside temperature in Spokane, Washington was 3.33 C° (Tc). The temperature that the rooms in De…
