Homework Questions

Have you ever been working through a homework problem only to come up against a wall? Picture

As many of you have probably figured out, there are times when you are working through a homework problem and you get stuck! Well believe it or not this is a very normal and an entirely expected possibility. To help facilitate discussion about these “sticky” situations, this page was created. This page is designed to be an open forum for you (my students) to post questions about specific homework problems! To do this, you can utilize the comment section at the bottom of this page. Here you can one, post questions and two, answer or comment on questions you feel you may be able to help with. Not all questions will be answered online, however the posting of a question will most likely result in the answering of the question in class.  Below are a couple of guidelines that will benefit everyone when using this forum. Please read the guidelines before using this forum.

Guidelines

  1. Please do NOT use this sites as a place to vent frustration, but more so as a place to post simple questions and positive responses.
  2. Your question must pertain to a specific problem on the homework (please indicate the unit and the problem number in your question)
  3. You may respond to others, however only constructive comments are appropriate.
  4. Only questions pertaining to homework and labs are permitted. Questions pertaining to quizzes, tests, or any other assessments are strictly prohibited. Violation of this guideline may result in the deactivation of this page.
  5. Not all questions will be answered online, but all questions will be considered for class discussion.
  6. Lastly, you do not need to include your name in your post/comment.
  7. If you have any questions or concerns that you feel needs immediate attention then please use the contact form HERE, and I will try to respond to your request in a timely manor. (Note: most requests receive a response in 24-48 hours.)

  1. This is Gloria, I went on to Bclassroom to try to start or finish the mathematical part of our assignment. When I went on, it told me that I haven’t turned something in and it is late, the bclassroom will not let me work on the things and I am FREAKING OUT!!!

  2. For the Section B reading quiz, there isn’t a place to put our name. Is there suppose to be one or how will you know if we did it or not?

    • This is Mr. B. Very good point! I have changed the quiz to include name and period. Four people have submitted responses. If you one of those people, please re-submit your response with your name. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience!

    • Which specific questions do you have about these problems? What aspect of #3 do you not understand? For 1C look at Newton’s Third Law! And for 21 what do you have figured out thus far?

  3. How did you guys work out problem 2 in our physics unit 6 homework packet? I can determine 12.0 m/s is our initial velocity, but based on the answers in the back, 6.0 m/s is not the final velocity but instead a different value. I was greatly confused!

    • That is a great question! The trick to this problem is to look at the direction of the velocities! 12.0 m/s is in the positive direction and 6.0 m/s is actually moving in the negative direction. Therefore, if you calculate the change in momentum you end up with final minus initial looking something like this: (0.042kg x -6.0 m/s) – (0.0420kg x 12.0 m/s). Note: the answer in the back should be NEGATIVE not positive. From this point on you should be able to figure out the rest. However, if you still have questions post them!
