Applied Physics

Session 1

In session 1, we defined velocity and acceleration. Calculate velocity and acceleration. And we explained the relationship between gravity and acceleration.

Session 2

In session 2 we defined the relationships among frequency, pitch, amplitude, and loudness. Experimented with different sound waves. And listed the steps necessary for me and my partner to hear sound.

Session 3

In session 3 we defined the term Hypothesis. Make a hypothesis about how different materials expand when heat is applied. tested our hypothesis , and then defined and provide examples of three ways heat is transferred.

Session 4

In session 4 we list the steps to the scientific method. Differentiate between an insulator and a conductor. And conduct experiments to measure a material's ability to conduct or insulate heat.

Session 5

In session 5 we verbalize how tinting sunglasses filters light. Discover how light waves travel. And then determine which colors filters block the most and least amount of light.

Session 6

In session 6 we described the characteristics of laser light that make it different from ordinary light. Demonstrate proper care and use of a laser. And then experiment with laser light.

Session 7

In session 7 we demonstrated proper care and use of a laser. Transfer sound waves through a laser beam. And then use a beam splitter and mirrors to direct the laser beam.

Careers like Applied Physics

Engineers that use applied physics include the study of crystalline solids, liquids, supercooled liquids like glass, amorphous materials like ceramics, and polymer compounds. The study of such materials has made possible revolutionary breakthroughs in a number of engineering fields, such as transistors, semiconductor-based lasers, and fiber-optic communication devices.The study of nondestructive testing of engineering materials has made it possible for engineers to test heavy engineering structures without having to cause any damage or loss. Polymer technology has made possible ultra-light, bullet-proof uniforms for soldiers in action and lightweight aircraft parts
