Hickory Dickory Dock
I received this card several years ago (thank you Mr and Mrs Long), and it shows Physics in the animated world!
My immediate reaction to the card was “What big ceilings you have Chudleigh.”
With a stopwatch and the assumption that g remains constant Higher and A level students should calculate the minimum height of the room Chudleigh finds himself in. With love and best wishes Mrs Physics.
Make sure you add your answers in the comment box below! Working optional
OK, here goes, my results
Time for cork to go up and return on average 6.6 s.
That gives a time to reach the max height 3.3 s
At height v=0, a=-9.8 ms-2, t=3.3s.
Using s=ut+1/2 at2 we can estimate the maximum height the cork reaches
Now the best way to work out s is putting this result into the equation for height
Now I don’t advertise on this site, but if Jacquielawson.com allows me to keep this up then I assure you I am happy to link and tell you that this site contains the best e-cards you can want and for the unlimited number you can send it is worth every penny. They really do cheer up people
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
