Siddharth rajendran ib physics hl ii 28th february 2013 physics internal assessment research question: what is the effect on the diameter of the crater formed by dropping a metal ball from different heights. Need to be covered in delivering the course at all times, therefore, this guide should be read in conjunction with the specification and gcse physics a candidates will need to take part in a planned learning programme that covers the underpinning knowledge and skills. Video created by princeton university for the course imagining other earths by studying the properties of the moon, we learn not only about its history but about the formation history of the earth this lecture discusses the physics of craters. Okay, this is an astronomy cratering laboratory, but you may create what a crater isanother example is a volcanic crater i will provide an example of a cratering experiment the rest is up to you questions, if any, are best placed on the discussion page. This spectacular impact crater on mars, imaged by hirise on the mars reconnaissance orbiter, spans 100 feet (30 meters) and shows a clear system of rays in enhanced color.
Physics 15 lab manual measurement, uncertainty, and moon craters page 1 measurement, uncertainty, and moon craters please note: the introductory section for this lab is much longer than will be usual. How big a crater would be made by an impact from a body hurtling from space it depends but our calculator will give you an idea you can choose either to compute crater size from the projectile size, or to compute the projectile size from the crater size. Dr w pezzaglia astro 30, spring 2013 page 2 physics, lpc activity: impact craters 2013mar14 2 ii setup measure the masses of your balls (report in table) o you have several metal balls, and perhaps some plastic or glass ones. The first time i saw a real crater any closer than the surface of the moon was on monday morning, may 2, 1966 i was a 17-year-old paratrooper making my sixth jump at the us army quartermaster school, parachute packing and airdrop course, fort lee, virginia.
Hi, we are just about to start our physics coursework at school and ive got an uneasy feeling about it its my first piece of physics coursework and the teachers hoping we wont have to do another experiment- so i really need to do well in this one to make matters worse, my teacher is head of science so it'll be strict marking conditions. One foot in: if a crater is half inside, half outside a sample region, count it as “half” a crater sizes: we shall also discriminate between the sizes of craters if the crater is ellipsoidal (ie near the limb), measure the major axis (long way) to get the diameter. Moon craters are holes on the surface of the moon caused by the impact of meteoroids the moon is an easy target for these space rocks because it has no atmosphere to protect it.
Best answer: i've no idea where the formula v=(πℎ/6)(3a^2+ℎ^2 comes from if you derived it yourself, you should post a question here giving the derivation and ask someone to check it explain precisely what a and h are if you got it from somewhere, you need to check the source one simple way to get. Lev davidovich landau (22 january 1908 - april 1968) was a soviet physicist who made fundamental contributions to many areas of theoretical physics his accomplishments include the independent co-discovery of the density matrix method in quantum mechanics (alongside john von neumann), the quantum mechanical theory of diamagnetism, the theory of superfluidity, the theory of second-order phase. At some time in their life nearly every girl, boy (and adult) has thrown pebbles or cobbles into mud and watched nice round form the force of the impacts create circular structures with raised rimmed wall spatters of mud and smaller circular secondary craters may be seen (fig 1.
There are, of course, differences between the laboratory crater-forming experiments and the physical processes that formed the barringer crater for example, the meteor is believed to have struck the ground at a 45° angle 13 13. Johns hopkins university's applied physics labratory plans to crash a spacecraft into a near-earth asteroid nasa hopes it works collision course it wasn’t until 1983 that scientists discovered the first hint of the 53-mile impact crater buried beneath the chesapeake bay—left by the crash of an asteroid more than a mile in diameter. Hi, i am in my second year at sixth form college and i have chosen to do crater formation for my second year physics coursework i took some readings and found that a lighter ball makes a deeper crater than a ball of the same diameter but greater mass.
Physics 120 - principles of physics i lab experiment: crater formation purpose: the goals of this lab are to (1) test two alternative models of crater formation, (2) give you more practice using the uncertainty analysis tools we have developed so far, and (3) give you another opportunity to use log-log graphs to examine power-law relationships. In 2012, brian pratt, pictured right, helped discover the impact crater located on the northwestern part of victoria island in the arctic it is about 25 km wide and is canada's 30th known.
