The force that the moon exerts on Earth is equal and opposite to the force that Earth exerts on the moon. This relationship is an example of Newton's third law of motion. The force in the picture are centripetal forces. As a result of these centripetal forces, the moon and Earth each orbit around the center of mass of the Earth-moon system.
Physics Simulation: Race Track
Race a car around an oval race track and demonstrate your knowledge of inertia and centripetal force. You're the driver and you use force buttons to accelerate, decelerate, and turn the car in this turn-based (no pun intended) game. Your objective is to stay on the track and use as few moves as possible This requires a good physics understanding and a commitment to watching your speed on the turns. Great 1:1 physics classroom activity; works on iPads, Chromebooks, and smart phones.
Transmutation of the elements
Transmutation is different than transformation.This chart is arranged in a seven-orbit spiral; towards the center, atomic weight becomes heavier and atomic number goes higher. Furthermore, the elements in the lower half of each orbit have generally longer spectroscopic wavelengths (measured in Angstrom units-the elements in the upper half have shorter wavelengths. Yin: is governed by centrifugal force (from the center to the periphery) Yang: is governed by centripetal force
“Black Hole” is a series of images, which shows paint modeled by centripetal force. The setup is very simple: Various shades of acrylic paint are dripped onto a metallic rod, which is connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint starts to move away from the rod, creating these amazing looking structures.
