  1. International Baccalaureate Physics Physics Olympics

  2. Physics Olympics • Students form teams of three. • Teams compete in three events. • One of the events is a “calculation” event.

  3. Physics Olympics • Students form teams of three. • Teams compete in three events. • One of the events is a “calculation” event. • Make a team of three • Show me that you can “calculate.” • Sign up with me for your three events. (visit PO website for more info) • Plan transportation, meals, shirts, and construction.

  4. Calculation events • Students form teams of three. • Teams compete in three events. • One of the events is a “calculation” event. • Air track - Centripetal force • Spring constant - Magnetic field • Trajectory * Laser shoot

  5. Calculation events • One of the events is a “calculation” event. • Air track - Centripetal force • Spring constant - Magnetic field • Trajectory * Laser shoot • Your team must pre-qualify by solving a related physics problem. • Here are some practice problems:

  6. Air Track • Your team must pre-qualify by solving a related physics problem. • Here are some practice problems: • A 50.0 gram load sits on a 200.0 gram glider. The glider is 15.0 cm long and is 85.0 cm from a photogate. If a 35.0 gram weight pulls on the glider, how long will the photogate be blocked?

  7. Air Track

  8. Centripetal force • Your team must pre-qualify by solving a related physics problem. • Here are some practice problems: • You hang a 150.0 gram mass from a string and use it to whirl a rubber stopper in a 45.0 cm radius circle. Your partner times 20.0 revolutions in 7.68 seconds. What is the stopper’s mass?

  9. Centripetal force

  10. Spring constant • Your team must pre-qualify by solving a related physics problem. • Here are some practice problems: • You hang a 150.0 gram mass from a spring and observe it oscillate vertically. Your partner times 20.0 cycles in 7.68 seconds. When a different mass is oscillating, the stopwatch reads 9.64 seconds. What is the other mass?

  11. Spring constant

  12. Magnetic Field • Your team must pre-qualify by solving a related physics problem. • Here are some practice problems: • You hold a magnetic compass 5.0 cm due north of a wire. When a switch is closed, current in the wire makes the compass deflect 62°. What is the strength of the magnetic field at a distance of 22.0 cm?

  13. Magnetic Field

  14. Trajectory • Your team must pre-qualify by solving a related physics problem. • Here are some practice problems: • You work on a 75.0 cm tall table. A marble ball is released from a ramp and rolls along the level table top. Your partner times it with a stopwatch—he says it takes 0.84 seconds to roll a meter. How far from the table will the ball land?

  15. Trajectory • You work on a 75.0 cm tall table. A marble ball is released from a ramp and rolls along the level table top. Your partner times it with a stopwatch—he says it takes 0.84 seconds to roll a meter. How far from the table will the ball land? • The ball will be in the air for t = (2y/g)1/2 • t = 0.391 sec • The ball’s speed is v = 100cm / 0.84 sec • v = 119 cm/sec • The range is v*t • Range = 46.5 cm

  16. *Laser shoot • Your team must pre-qualify by solving a related physics problem. • Here are some practice problems: • You go into a room with a red line on a table and a post-it note on the wall. Position a semicircular dish of water at the end of the line and a tiny mirror 50 cm away so that when a laser beam is aimed down the red line the beam will hit the center of the post-it note. You have 10 minutes.
