Back to controlled assessed coursework guidance in core science, you will given a hypothesis to test in your data analysis coursework and/or use of a formal model (such as lock and key to explain enzyme activity, chain length of hydrocarbons affecting their viscosity, or photon model of electromagnetic radiation). Topics in atomic physics include the photoelectric effect, the bohr model of the atom, compton scattering, x-ray spectra and nuclear decay and reactions properties of matter topics include surface tension, elastic and bulk modulus, buoyancy, viscosity and cavitation optics introduces simple optical phenomena and. Hi, i am doing physics coursework on finding viscosity of fluids by dropping a marble into fluids, finding terminal velocity, then using stoke's law to find viscosity (using density of fluid, sphere, sphere diameter etc) i have completed all the practical, now just the write up however i could really do with.
Visit for more math and science lectures in this video i will calculate the viscosity of a liquid next video in this series can b. This revised edition of the ap physics 2: algebra-based course and exam description provides a stand-alone course and exam collected from a range of colleges and universities to ensure that ap coursework reflects current scholarship and advances in boundary statement: fluid viscosity is not part of physics 1 20.

We're home to the famous pitch drop experiment, which holds the guinness world record for the longest-running laboratory experiment the experiment demonstrates the fluidity and high viscosity of pitch, a derivative of tar that is the world's thickest known fluid and was once used for waterproofing boats. It serves both as a preparation for further study in physics-based degree programmes, and as a standalone course for students of other disciplines, including mathematics bernoulli s equation viscosity reynolds number take responsibility for learning by attending lectures and workshops, and completing coursework. Brown university, providence, usa 15 courses credited in 4 departments ( applied mathematics, chemistry, physics & solid mechanics)classical theoretical physics extended finite element methods and level set techniques viscous and naval hydrodynamics polymer and composites numerical methods for fluids.
Or you could compare liquids of different density or viscosity or non-polar ( hexane) with polar (ethanol) don't try to do too many variables or you'll run out of time here's a stimulus for developing a great eei based on the singing wine glass my thanks to physics teacher steven anastasi from the cathedral college ,. This calculus-based course provides electrical and electronic engineering students with important foundational knowledge about mechanics, materials, heat transfer, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics and its application to common electrical engineering systems the course includes weekly small-group problem-solving. The aim of the experiment is to determine the viscosity of glycerine (a viscous fluid) by using guinea-and-feather apparatus and to determine the viscosity of the glycerine for a sphere of radius, r moving at velocity, v in an infinitely extended fluid of dynamic viscosity, a-level physics coursework - measuring viscosity. (submitted as coursework for physics 210, stanford university, autumn 2007) at the most fundamental level the physical system under consideration is that of a viscous fluid on a rotating disk (fig where η is the viscosity, ρ the liquid density , ω the spin speed, and v the radial velocity at any point (r, θ, z.
