NEW at The Physics Classroom: Hit-and-Stick Collisions

We are pleased to announce a new Concept Builder – the Hit and Stick Collisions: Law Enforcement. Hit-and-Stick Collisions is designed to help students build an understanding of the law of momentum conservation as it applies to collisions. Learners will be presented with three different situations involving the hit-and-stick collision of a moving object with a stationary object. After the collision, the two objects move together at a constant speed. A Before- and After-Explosion representation of the mass and velocity of each cart is presented for all three situations. Learners will have to inspect the diagram and identify any situation that violates the law of momentum conservation. There are three difficulty levels that differ only in terms of the number of questions presented to the learner. Help is provided and is easily accessible. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity. Find this activity at …

Smart Engineering Tutorials consists of Video Lectures of Communication System and other ECE subjects. These tutorials will be very helpful to B.Tech/ B.E. students of GGSIPU, AKTU, UTU and other technical universities. The videos will contain numericals and solutions of previous year papers which will give a better understanding of the subject.

Understanding Car Crashes: When Physics Meets Biology

Why do some car crashes produce only minor injuries? How can a single crash of a car into a wall involve three separate collisions? Griff Jones, award-winning science teacher, returns to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Vehicle Research Center to answer these questions and to examine the laws of nature that determine what happens to the human body in a crash.
