Physics 11 – Today we had a quiz on Newton’s 2nd Law. The idea was to quiz the basic Fnet type of situation, to see where all the students are at. Doing a worksheet while chatting with friends can be a lot different from doing a quiz where there is no contact with others.
From our previous practice questions, the students were a bit mixed up with creating an Fnet equation. For example, they still held the idea that they should memorize, or be given, the equation Fnet = Fn – Fg
I believe overcoming this misconception to be the biggest take-aways from the class.
