Motivation

  • Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
  • Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
  • You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
  • It always seems impossible until it’s done.
  • You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
  • You don’t always get what you wish for; you get what you work for.
  • It’s not about how bad you want it. It’s about how hard you’re willing to work for it.
  • Challenges are what make life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
  • The pain you feel today is the strength you will feel tomorrow. For every challenge encountered there is opportunity for growth.

Photoelectric Effect

I’ve taken some video clips (well Miss Horn did) of us trying out the Photoelectric effect as some people might never have seen it. I’m impressed how well it works, thanks to Mr Physics- who cleaned up the zinc plate. It needs polishing every 15 mins or so as it tarnishes very quickly and then wont work. The video of charging it positively and observing no drop in the gold leaf was just too boring to post. Hope you can watch them: I’ll have to try Plan B if not.
