Physics Excursion

Yesterday our Unit 3 Physics class had a chance to put their motion theory into practice when experiencing the ‘thrills and spills’ of rides at the iconic Luna Park. From the top of the Ferris Wheel, before the first drop of the Scenic Railway or the 33 metre height of the ‘Supernova’, St Kilda beach and its surrounds were on display. As the twin ‘Dragon’ gracefully swept through its path, or the roller coasters dived, the screams resounded! Our students calculated speeds, centripetal acceleration, mechanical energy, tension forces and in the case of the dodgems, transfer of momentum through the plentiful collisions! We thank Learning Leader: Science, Ms Jacinta Devlin and Ms Carole Downie for organising this unique, fun and practical way to assist with learning outcomes.
