Solution to challenge problem from the other day

The other day I put a challenge problem on the board.

You had a box on a 30 degree incline that started at v0=0 and then reached v=8m/s after t=2 sec. You had to find the coefficient of friction.

Here is the solution. Notice how I did not plug any numbers in until the last minute and that the mass cancelled out.



QUIZ Monday on Forces. 

LAB Reports due Monday.

See post below this one for information and resources for the lab reports and for the quizzes. 

Also, I posted the solutions to the review problems that I assigned on Friday, 11/4/2011 here:

Here you can find the links to the free software and help sites for creating graphs. 

Remember, Lab Reports are due Monday. Each person has to have their own lab report. 

Quiz on Forces is on Monday also. 

The class notes for Forces are posted on the class site:
