• ## Drama Monologue Velocity vs. Viscosity

867 Words  | 2 Pages

Drama Monologue Velocity vs. Viscosity Insanity comes in two basic varieties: slow and fast. I'm not talking about onset or duration. I mean the quality of the insanity. The day to day business of being a head case. There are lots of names I guess: depression, catatonia, mania, anxiety, agitation. They don't really tell you much though do they? The predominant quality of the slow form in viscosity. Experience is thick. Perceptions are thickened and dulled. Time is slow, dripping

• ## The Terminal Velocity of a Paper Helicopter

715 Words  | 2 Pages

The Terminal Velocity of a Paper Helicopter Introduction. Terminal velocity is the resulting occurance when acceleration and resistance forces are equal. As an example, a freefalling parachutist before the parachute opens reaches terminal velocity at about 120mph, but when the parachute is opened, terminal velocity is reached at 15mph, which is a safe speed to hit the ground at. This experiment will be no different, as I will be examining the terminal velocity of a freefalling paper helicopter

• ## Terminal Velocity Lab Report

Air resistance and drag can either be proportional to the velocity or to the square of the velocity. Drag force will eventually counteract downward forces on an object in freefall, resulting in a terminal velocity. The acceleration of the object can be modeled by an exponential decay graph. PURPOSE Evaluate how terminal velocity varies with mass. Determine in which instances air resistance is proportional to velocity or to velocity squared. Understand how mass influences the decay constant k.

• ## How Does An Object Have A Low Terminal Velocity

555 Words  | 2 Pages

Terminal velocity is the constant speed achieved by a freely falling object through a gas or liquid. An object dropped from rest will increase its speed until it reaches terminal velocity; an object forced to move faster than its terminal velocity will, upon release, slow down to this constant velocity. When an object attains terminal velocity its acceleration becomes zero. The force of air resistance is directly proportional to the speed of falling object. Terminal velocity is reached when the force

• ## Experiment to Calculate Acceleration of Mass and Velocity of Free-Falling Object

964 Words  | 2 Pages

Experiment 4: Free Fall Objective: To calculate the acceleration of a mass as it falls toward earth’s surface and calculate the average velocity when measuring the total distance that the mass moved during some period of time. We had to determine the acceleration due to gravity and compare it to the standard value of 980 cm/s2. Then plot the velocity versus time, find the slope which in turn will provide the experimental value of g. (Air resistance wasn’t considered for the mass in free fall)

• ## Effect of Object's Weight on Its Terminal Velocity as it is Falling

828 Words  | 2 Pages

Object's Weight on Its Terminal Velocity as it is Falling Aim === To investigate how the weight of an object affects its terminal velocity as it is falling. Prediction ========== I predict that when the weight of a falling object is increased the terminal velocity will also increase. I think this because as you increase an objects weight it has a larger downwards force. In order for the object to travel at a constant speed, i.e. terminal velocity, another force must match the

• ## Research: Passing a Metal Ball Through Viscuous Liquids for Velocity Check

744 Words  | 2 Pages

could be that the metal mall probably did not start initially at 0 ms-, because the rim of the graduated cylinder reached a height of .011 m above the surface of the liquid. Therefore, the ball did not start falling in the liquids with an initial velocity of 0 ms-, which could have affected the results. Ways that this issue could be fixed is by filling the cylinder to the rim and re-measuring that distance to 0 mL. In addition, there could have been a few human errors in measuring. Since data recording

determine the water tunnel calibration. Both of these objectives were accomplished by using LDA (Laser Doppler Anemometry). LDA is one of the main velocity measurement methods used in professional experimentation. Light beams are shot from a laser onto flowing water. In objective one, a cylinder was submersed in the water flow to determine how the velocity aft of the cylinder was disturbed. While the second objective used the LDA on flowing water with no disturbances. This LDA system is an accurate

A Study of the Changes in River Processes This is a study of the changes in river processes along the long profile of a river. To study this we will use a sample river. The river the study will be based on Loughton Brook, which is a river situated in Epping Forest in Essex and is also a tributary of the river Thames. A journey will be made to the river and measurements will be made at three different sites. The measurements that were taken will be studied so conclusions

• ## Data Analysis

Data Analysis Explanation [IMAGE]The experiment consisted of recording the results of a small toy car being allowed to roll down a ramp and then leave the end of the ramp by continuing straight off the drop from the end of the desk. I measured the ramp's length, the height of the ramp, and the distance it covered horizontally. I also measured the mass of the car. It was necessary to measure these things so that I can perform calculations later. All of the information I gathered can be

unknown speed. We do however know that they “land” in a body of water 114.5 meters away (assumed to be leveled) 6.363 seconds later. What is the speed that Team Rocket are thrown and what was their maximum height? Assume no air resistance or terminal velocity. Also assume anime physics (meaning everyone travels in a group and everyone survives!). Solution: This is what is known: The object we are focused on is Team Rocket. θ = 60° x0 = 0 m y0 = 0 m xf = 114.5 m t = 6.363 s ay = - 9.8 m/s2 What do

friendly level is Velocity Nine. A villain took it to gain incredible speed in attempt to beat the super hero, Flash. It was a drug that would make the weakest feel remarkably strong and let them do unimaginable things, just as a baseball player uses steroids to hit consecutive home runs. But, just as Steroids do, Velocity Nine lead to the villain 's death. He couldn’t live without it. It made his weaknesses disappear but soon after, so did his pulse.        The story of Velocity Nine isn’t just part

respect to the surface of the planet. Second, orbiting the planet requires a certain velocity that will be greater than the velocity of rotation of the planet for a low orbit, this excess velocity must be bled off as well. Energy requirements they are usually expressed in terms of the change in velocity necessary for a given maneuver, or delta-v. To escape from a planet requires a certain increase in velocity and to land requires a certain decrease. Either way, however, energy is required; in

direction e.g. due north, it will be called the Velocity of the object. It again is expressed as meters/second but having both magnitude and direction it is a Vector quantity. Newton described that an object that is stationary will stay stationary until a force is applied to it and an object that is in motion will stay in motion in a straight line until it is acted upon by a force. This is NewtonÂ’s First Law of Motion. Average Velocity = Displacement taken place (m) (m/s) Time taken

• ## Physics of Soccer

1799 Words  | 4 Pages

definition of velocity is very close to that of speed except that direction of an object is also taken into account. Soccer is a sport that is all about motion and how to use movements most effectively. Speed and velocity are very important when it comes to motion because with out them there would be no motion. When playing soccer speed is essential to being a productive player. The game is fast paced and so the players must also be quick on their feet. Soccer players may not know that velocity is essential

TA: Meghna Bhattacharya (Section 4) February 28, 2017 OBJECTIVE This object of the experiment was to demonstrate the average distance the ball traveled when shot from the spring gun. The test was used to show how the angle of elevation and initial velocity will affect where the ball is estimated to land. Using data collected on average distance found in part one of the experiment, you were then able to calculate time, when y=0 and yo= the distance from the spring gun to the floor, for part one using

• ## The Moment Of Inertia Of The Flywheel

966 Words  | 2 Pages

The Moment of Inertia of the flywheel was obtained as follow: I = T / α = Fa (R2+R1) / (a / R2) = ((M4g) - (M4a) - (FFr)) (R2+R1) / (( S - ut ) / ( 0.5 t^2 )) / R2 = ((M4g) - (M4(( S - ut ) / ( 0.5 t^2 )) - (FFr)) (R2+R1) / (( S - ut ) / ( 0.5 t^2 )) / R2 • Torque is equal to the product of the moment of inertia and angular acceleration; therefore moment of inertia is equal and was calculated as the quotient of the torque and angular acceleration. • The torque was calculated as well as the
