   Regents Physics Units  
Unit 1 - Methods and Tools of Physics

Watch the left video first!   Professor Walter Lewin from MIT illustrates how uncertainty in measurement is important in experiments.

  
Unit 2 - 1D Kinematics
 Astronaut David R. Scott on the Moon proving the "Law of Falling Bodies"
 
Unit 3 - Vectors and 2D Kinematics
Sneek Peek of Rockets at Rec Park Lab
 
 
INTRO TO VECTORS
 
 
 
 
INTRO TO PROJECTILE MOTION  
 
** Please note in the videos below he uses X for displacement.  We use a d instead.  X = d.
  
2) Video 2 
3) Video 3 
 
Unit 5 - Uniform Circular Motion & Gravity
Extreme Carossel                                                                         G-Force Training
 
Unit 6 - Work, Energy and Power
"Human Slingshot!"                                                                    "Extreme Conservation of Energy" 
 
Unit 7 - Momentum
NOT a good idea!!!                                                                           Home - made "ballistic pendulum"
 
 
Unit 8 - Egg Drop

PROJECT UNIT - EGG DROP!!!

Unit 9 - Electrostatics
Unit 10 - Electric Circuts
Mr. Paul Hewitt teaches the difference between series and parallel circuits
Unit 11- MagLev & Circuits Challenge

PROJECT UNIT - Magnetic Levitation/Water Gutter Vehicle/Boat Race

 
Unit 12 -Waves
Strobed Standing Wave on a String                                      Chandli Plate at various Harmonics
Unit 13 - Reflection and Refraction
Reflection, Refraction, TIR of light                                              Concave Mirror Energy Source?
Unit 14 - Modern Physics
Electron Diffraction - Does Matter have a wave nature?                                 Light Wave Diffraction
 
 
 
 
 
Standing Waves on can be useful or destructive!!  Above are the first 3 harmonics of standing waves on a string under tension.  Below you can see the Tacoma Narrows bridge that collapsed due to a 2nd harmonic standing wave forming when a sustained wind of 40 mph occurred.
