Interesting Mechanics Challenge: Pulling a Bicycle with a Rubber Band

Check out three situations of pulling a bicycle with a large rubber band. Think of the force diagram, and predict which way the bike should move. Then, check your prediction with the video of each situation. How did you do?!?!?

Review sets

For 4 Chem-Phys, you can work on an electrostatics and Gauss review set here.

For AP Physics C, you can work on a Newton's laws review set here.

Gauss's law videos to check out

FOr 4 Chem-Phys, check out a video on Gauss's law for conductors, and see if you can do the 2008 AP problem for Thursday. We will also look at Gauss's law for non-conducting materials, so you may want to have a preview.

Relevant videos

For the 4 Chem-Phys group, check out a video on an electrical version of projectile motion, where a constant E-field replaces gravity from a 'normal' projectile problem. For a review of finding E-field vectors and electric potential at a point in space due to point charges, check out this video.

For the AP class, if you need to review our process for solving systems, check out this tension video.

Enjoy the weekend!
