For now what you’re going to build is a secret, but if you’d like to do some general exploration on Engineering and Design, this website contains materials for each step of the process you’re going to have to do:
Here’s a hint about what you have to build:

A quick review of electrostatics (made by someone else):
Then, take a look at Princeton Review pages 183-197. Finally, try these problems from the Princeton book
- All multiple choice on 198-199 (answers are on pages 405-406)
- Both Free Response on page 200 (answers are on pages 406-409)
Also, read section Walker, 19-2 on pages 656-657. You should be able to explain where charge is located on a conductor. Figure 19-6 on page 657 offers a nice summary for after you’re done reading.
Princeton Review: Pages 131-136 (chapter 8), Try all Multiple choice and Free Response Questions. Answers to these questions are on pages 395-401.

Work, energy and power
If you didn’t see the momentum one a few days ago:
Textbook reading: In the Walker textbook, I recommend taking a look at the summaries of sections 8-2 through 8-4 on pages 242-243 and the summaries for sections 9-1 through 9-6 on pages 286-287.
Princeton Reading: Here are the parts of the Princeton book that cover our Unit 3:
- Chapter 4, pages 57-76 (all multiple choice and Free Response apply)
- Chapter 5 77-90 (all multiple choice and Free Response apply)
- I STRONGLY encourage you to look at Example 5.9 and its solution, which are found on pages 84-85.
Momentum in 2-Dimensions (since everyone was confused in class)
Post-reading question/Sample Free Response:
A ski lift carries skiers along a 600-meter slope inclined at 30°. Each chair has a mass of 50 kilograms, and each rider has a mass of 70 kilograms. The skiers get off at the top of the hill, so the chairs are empty for the return trip. Under maximum load conditions six riders per minute arrive at the top. If 60 per cent of the energy supplied by the motor goes into overcoming friction, what average power must the motor supply?
