Lab, day 2: Thermodynamic Cycles

Tuesday, Apr. 4

Work daywork on lab (questions for evaluation of the 4process cycle, especially, due Wednesday)
Also: Textbook, read pages 559564 (thermodynamic processes) and work on questions 4, 5, and 6 on pages 589590 (end of chapter questions). whatever you can get done for these questions is due on Thursday. You may not be able to complete them yet, but I want you to try all of them. 
Wednesday,
Apr. 5 
Notes and Demos: Adiabatic processesexpansion and compressions

Thursday, Apr. 6

Notes: 1st law of Thermodynamics; practice problems in class
Talk about questions 4, 5, and 6 that were worked on for today.

Intro to chapter 6: circular motion
Relay race reflection sheetplease put this in your journal. If you were absent today, please wait to fill this out until you have a chance to run the course. Start notes on circular motion concepts Permission slip/behavior contract passed out to those of you attending the Silverwood field trip. Please read, sign, and return before you lose it. :) If you did not pick one up, let me know in classno worries. Plenty of time to get them turned in.

Lab Day2 labs, but we're going to alternate who is doing each over the next 2 days (so today and tomorrow look the same...you have 2 activities to finish before Monday)
Lab A: Handson lab Determine the relationship between a rotating bar's angular velocity (radians per second) and its tangential velocity (m/s) Lab B: Computer SimulationDetermine the relationship between the radial position (distance from the center of a disk) and the tangential velocity of a ladybug.

All analysis due on Monday for both activities.
