old erhs AP Physics 2



For 5/27/2016: Video labs: 
1. The Joly Photometer: a. In the Joly Photometer video: What can you say about the 2 bulbs? The CFL is a 23W bulb and the incandescent bulb is 100W. Determine the relative efficiency of the 2 bulbs. 
b. In the Light Bulb Tests video: Find the wattage of the reference bulb. 
2. Keep in Time or Keep in TimeNine student-musicians line up on a soccer field and clap to the beat of a metronome broadcast through a megaphone. Find the speed of sound. How accurate is your result? 
3. Gravity Powered Clock or Gravity Powered Clock or download (Quicktime Video 9.5MB Feb14 14)This video shows a "grandfather" clock powered by suspended masses that are pulled downward by the force of gravity. What quantities can you calculate using information from this video? What other information can you find in this video? Come up with questions for the information you have. Ask other groups the questions you come up with. You may find it useful to know: The video is filmed in Minnesota. The shutter was set at one exposure per second.
