It’s all very cool stuff ’cause it is the beginning of a look into classical mechanics. What’s fun here is the ability to predict the future … “If I throw a ball this hard at this angle to the ground, here’s where it will land.” We’ll get into calc-based physics after a bit, and will look into some of the really fun stuff later on. You get hooked, and classical mechanics leads to quantum mechanics, continuum mechanics, statistical mechanics … and you look at the world in a very different way.
What’s next for us at SP4U in physics will be motion in a vertical plane, Newton’s Laws of Motion, circular motion, simple harmonic motion, electricity, light …. seems like too much fun in one place, but we’re gonna try anyway
