  1. Give Your Science Teaching A(nother) Good Kick In The Arts Poetry, Music and Song in the Physics Lab RODNEY COLLEGE Presented by Tony (“Haggis”) Henderson

  2. What is today’s plan? • The Projectile Song • “One on f” – the optics song • Quantum Physics Sea Shanty • The Satellite Song • The Quantum Particle Argument song • The Quantum Wave Argument song • The Quantum Truth song • …all with choruses • and… • Homework RODNEY COLLEGE

  3. Projectiles RODNEY COLLEGE

  4. Projectiles • About projectile motion • To the tune: “The Old Folks at Home” by Stephen Foster • C is a comfortable key to sing it in RODNEY COLLEGE

  5. Projectiles – verse 1 When a thing is thrown and it zips off It will chase a parabolic arc We can do this with a gun or ball Or even Fido’s stick when in the park RODNEY COLLEGE

  6. Projectiles - Chorus Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is free Vertically, everything that’s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g” RODNEY COLLEGE

  7. Projectiles – verse 2 An object that’s not held up by anything Will plunge to earth like concrete in free-fall As well as that, in a horizontal sense There is no force that pushes it at all RODNEY COLLEGE

  8. Projectiles - Chorus Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is free Vertically, everything that’s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g” RODNEY COLLEGE

  9. Projectiles – verse 3 Projectiles are objects that are in the air Free from almost all external force We ignore all lift and thrust and drag but we Must include the vector, weight, of course RODNEY COLLEGE

  10. Projectiles - Chorus Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is free Vertically, everything that’s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g” RODNEY COLLEGE

  11. Projectiles – verse 4 To find the range of anything that’s thrown about We need to find the time until it lands The vertical velocity, when t is nought Combined with “g” will put it in our hands RODNEY COLLEGE

  12. Projectiles - Chorus Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is free Vertically, everything that’s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g” RODNEY COLLEGE

  13. Projectiles – verse 5 Finally, now we know our time of flight And the constant horizontal speed We can find the distance ‘til the object drops And thus we then have all the stuff we need RODNEY COLLEGE

  14. Projectiles – Chorus (last time) Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is free Vertically, everything that’s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g” RODNEY COLLEGE

  15. 1 on f RODNEY COLLEGE

  16. “One on f”The Des Cartes optics formula • This song helps students learn the Des Cartes optics formula • It also helps students understand the meaning and importance of values for do, di and f when they are both greater than and less than zero. • There is still a line that I am not entirely happy with but when I think of a better one, I’ll replace it. No luck yet. • The tune is “Daddy Sang Bass” by Carl Perkins • F is a comfortable key to sing it in. RODNEY COLLEGE

  17. “One on f”Pronunciation guide Des Cartes = “Day Cart” di = “die” do = “dough” RODNEY COLLEGE

  18. One on f – verse 1 In optics old Des Cartes gave us all a great head start When he joined the three ideas: f, di and do To find the link was tough but Des Cartes was good enough He found reciprocals the way to go RODNEY COLLEGE

  19. 1 f One on f… RODNEY COLLEGE

  20. 1 f = … and then write equals RODNEY COLLEGE

  21. 1 f = … and then write equals The other side has two sequels RODNEY COLLEGE

  22. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + One on do and one on di completes the set RODNEY COLLEGE

  23. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + Crunch this equation through Just like we always do RODNEY COLLEGE

  24. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + And the thing that is not known You then will get RODNEY COLLEGE

  25. One on f – verse 2 There’s stuff we need to know: What are f and di and do? What they stand for we should keep in mind do for object’s range and di’s the image’s – one word changed f, the focal length I know you’ll find RODNEY COLLEGE

  26. 1 f One on f… RODNEY COLLEGE

  27. 1 f = … and then write equals RODNEY COLLEGE

  28. 1 f = … and then write equals The other side has two sequels RODNEY COLLEGE

  29. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + One on do and one on di completes the set RODNEY COLLEGE

  30. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + Crunch this equation through Just like we always do RODNEY COLLEGE

  31. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + And the thing that is not known You then will get RODNEY COLLEGE

  32. One on f – verse 3 For problems you can do, you’ll be given any two And then the missing one must then be sought The same denominator – will make life better later And use reciprocals like you’ve been taught RODNEY COLLEGE

  33. 1 f One on f… RODNEY COLLEGE

  34. 1 f = … and then write equals RODNEY COLLEGE

  35. 1 f = … and then write equals The other side has two sequels RODNEY COLLEGE

  36. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + One on do and one on di completes the set RODNEY COLLEGE

  37. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + Crunch this equation through Just like we always do RODNEY COLLEGE

  38. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + And the thing that is not known You then will get RODNEY COLLEGE

  39. One on f – verse 4 The sign for each of these is something ON which you should seize A minus means a virtual f or di In this case do’s a hero – never less than zero That’s something on which we can all rely RODNEY COLLEGE

  40. 1 f One on f… RODNEY COLLEGE

  41. 1 f = … and then write equals RODNEY COLLEGE

  42. 1 f = … and then write equals The other side has two sequels RODNEY COLLEGE

  43. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + One on do and one on di completes the set RODNEY COLLEGE

  44. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + Crunch this equation through Just like we always do RODNEY COLLEGE

  45. 1 f 1 do 1 di = + And the thing that is not known You then will get RODNEY COLLEGE

  46. The Quantum Physics Sea Shanty RODNEY COLLEGE

  47. Quantum Physics Sea Shanty • Zany Incongruity of • Almost ancient genre with a • Very modern concept • Original song – a traditional tune • Topic • Title • Simple to write • One rhyming couple per verse • Chorus repeats 2nd verse line • Simple to sing • D is a comfortable key to sing it in RODNEY COLLEGE

  48. Quantum Physics Sea ChantyVerse 1 Physics was thought almost dead Quantum stuff’s not easy But quanta kicked us in the head The ideas make us queasy RODNEY COLLEGE

  49. Chorus Quantum stuff’s not easy Quantum stuff’s not easy But quanta kicked us in the head The ideas make us queasy RODNEY COLLEGE

  50. Verse 2 Particle or maybe wave? Quantum stuff’s not easy It’s neither and both, it won’t behave The ideas make us queasy RODNEY COLLEGE
