We started by looking at some problems with Gauss's Law. Talked about potential, related it to gravity a bit. How V is like a slope in some ways. Looked a little at integrals. It's good to …

## Tutoring Conceptual Physics at RLS

We looked at conceptual problems related to magnetism. The book used by the school doesn't use equations much. Which seems like a strange approach to me. I think it would be useful to see something …

## Newtons and Distance in an equation

Newtons and meters are sometimes related to each other and you can see the relationships within equations. One such equation is that work is equal to the dot product of force and distance. Force …

## Tutoring Physics, Light, Indices of Refraction

We went over some problems with lenses, converging and diverging. Then spent some time on problems with different indices of refraction. I would usually think of air to water and the behavior if …

## Tutoring Physics, Dot Products and Cross Products Return

We looked at induced currents, loops, magnetic fields. Spent some time on the right hand rule. Also looked at the difference between dot products and cross products. They are important for the …

## Two Kinematic Equations Illustrated

I drew this diagram of two equations in physics. I used different colors to show different things. The letter x stands for position, the letter v stands for velocity, the letter a stands for …
