Physics and Mathematics Extension students are taught that, provided resistance forces are neglected, an object released from rest undergoes the same vertical displacement in the same time interval as an object projected horizontally. Now let resistance forces be included. Would it ever be possible for the horizontally projected object to have a greater vertical displacement in the same time interval than the object released from rest?
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.
