Random Instances of Physics

It pains me to know that recently, my posts have become rather short and blah. And of course, I blame all of this on the upcoming AP exams. Anyways, this weekend was another one of those extremely busy and boring ones with few physics revelations. Which is most regrettably unfortunate.

First of all, I took the practice AP US History exam on Saturday. Overall, the exam was manageable. My general tiredness however led to some random thoughts more related to physics then history. For example, the word ‘tension’ in one of the multiple choice questions immediately produced an image of a free body diagram in my mind with weight = mg down and all that other good stuff. Too bad that has nothing to do with Bacon’s Rebellion.

As a second item of interest, my brother has proved to be a most amusing source of entertainment as of late. I should have known better than to provide him with the ammunition (aka Starburst) to practice projectile motion (where of course, kinematic equations can be used to determine distance travelled and time elapsed.) However, I was hardly involved with his laughable attempts at rapping in Chinese (so maybe I was playing Chinese music all day…) and singing opera. If there were a way to harness the energy of people like him, there would be no need to fuss over the dangers of nuclear power plants (fission goes boom!)

Yeah…now wasn’t that all very random?

Chinese music!  But the awesome part is that the band singing the music is named Fei Lun Hai (Fahrenheit) !!!

So it’s completely related to physics, temperature, heat, and the like..  : D
