Physics Exam Topics

By: Casey Robinson on Jun 9, 2021 | Categories: Academic

For this year's Physics Exam each student did a presentation on a topic of their choosing.

For cadet Decker, he did a presentation on airplanes. How does physics relate to the airplane, who built the first airplane, what is the fastest airplane on the earth, and why can we not build anything else faster?

For cadet Ward, his topic is static electricity. He talked about what causes that little shock you can get when you first touch a doorknob, why you can rub a balloon against your hair or clothes (especially in dry weather), and why you feel shocked sometimes for shaking hands.
