The Science Museum in London has a marvellous long swinging pendulum that appears to change its direction during the day. Some books say that the pendulum keeps swinging in the same plane in space. Is this true in London? How do we explain the shift in the position of the pendulum during the day?
Physics and Mathematics
What are the concepts in Physics and Mathematics that students find difficult? In this blog I will post tutorial points that I hope will stimulate thinking and so broaden the knowledge and understanding of students allowing them to write thorough examination responses. Tutorial sheets, structured from a student's point of view, will be posted on the HSC, IB and university level topics of Relativity, Electromagnetism, Mechanics, Quantum Physics and Calculus. The overall purpose of these pages is to encourage and promote learning in Physics and Mathematics and so open new horizons in learning.
