1.
Focus during the entire Power Point activity.
Solidify your studying skills during this
class period.
Perform your work in your science journal so
you have created a study guide for the test.
Call me over if you are having difficulty
getting started.
If your answer is confirmed as correct,
become a student/teacher and help someone
in class who does not understand the
method used to solve the problem.

The Batallac, the 1500 kg car used by
Batfink and Karate to fight crime, is
stopped at a height of 35 meters at the top
of a damaged bridge. You may assume
there is no friction. How much energy
has been transferred? What container is
this energy stored in? Remember that
Batfink is 50 kg and Karate is 150 kg.
