ACTIVITY: Regents Physics Blogging Assignment for Q4
By FizziksGuy In General / Other
Description and instructions for a 10week endofyear blogging assignment in which students are asked to create a blog on the APlusPhysics Community. One wellwritten blog is requested every two weeks. Startup instructions and logging sheets are included.
Note: Google Login was not available on APlusPhysics at the time this assignment was created, and therefore logging in with your google account is not described.

LAB: Wave Speed with Standing Waves in Springs
By FizziksGuy In Waves
A lab in which students oscillate an extended spring to create standing waves. By measuring the period or frequency of the standing waves, as well as the wavelength, students calculate the speed of the wave using the wave equation.
Ultimate goal of this lab is to have students understand that the type of wave and the medium determine the speed of the wave. The wave equation, holds true and describes a relationship, but the speed of the wave is not determined by adjusting the wavelength or frequency.

Long springs
stopwatches
