Congratulations to our Physics Olympics teams that participated in Physics Olympics on Friday, April 8th at Bakersfield College. The following teams placed first in their event. We also had several second and third places.
Physics Super quiz – This is the culminating event in the competition and after 24 questions, Liberty and Centennial were tied for first. After 5 tie breaker questions our team from Liberty prevailed.
Centripetal Force – Students predict the mass of a stopper using Newton’s Second Law for circular motion.
Spring Constant – Students predict the mass of an unknown using Hooke’s law of the period of Simple Harmonic motion.
