The award-winning Cerebellum Teaching Systems presents Physics Module 7: Planetary Motion and Simple Harmonic Motion. Designed to capture your students' attention, this total approach system is a complete study unit. Cerebellum introduces the Physics students to: Kepler's laws of planetary motion, simple harmonic motion, Hooke's Law, and gravitational potential energy.Planetary motion is covered briefly in this module including Kepler's laws. This portion explains the elliptical orbit of planets and its effect on the orbital period. Harmonic motion studies start with the equations for a spring based on Hooke's Law and the definitions of period, cycle, amplitude, wavelength, frequency, spring constants and the restoring force. Building from module 6, the conservation of energy is employed in the conversion of kinetic energy to potential energy to kinetic energy again.Product consists of:
