Exam Review Day

Before Class Preparation:

  • Complete all assigned braingenie exercises and self quizzes
  • Finish your exam formula sheet

In Class Work:

  • Submission of formula sheet for the exam
  • Group discussions of the Pre-Exam Document

Overarching Learning Goals for Grade 11 Physics:

  • We are learning to analyse and solve physics problems and relating them to everyday life
  • We are learning to use investigations skills and perform experiments to test the laws of physics
  • We are learning to apply physics concepts in order to assess the impacts of technology on the society & environment

Resonance in an air column

Before Class Preparation:

  • Read this overview of Resonance in an Air Column
  • Answer Pre-Lab Questions here (due before 8:15am)
  • What is the distance between different parts of a standing wave (nodes, anti-node) in terms of wavelength?
  • Print and read this handout: Air Column Resonance
    • Identify the variables on the handout
    • We’ll be working with water, so computers are not a good idea

In Class Activity:

  • Resonance of standing waves
  • Resonance in an air column
  • Verifying the speed of sound in air
  • Record your results here or scan the QR code:
