  3. 3. • To the tune:”Sweet Betsy From Pike”• The web address to find the original set of lyrics and mp3 file is http://www.haverford.edu/physics/songs/snell.htm• Physics lyrics by Marion McKenzie and Walter Smith (Google “Physics Songs”)• C is a comfortable key• Image from the Haverford website
  4. 4. C F (or C) G (or G7) Am (or C)Singin‟ n1 sine theta-sub-1, hey, hey, hey, C F (or C) G (or G7) CEquals n2 sine theta-sub-2, hip hooray!
  5. 5. C G7 CHis greatest feat came in Sixteen Twenty-one, Am G G7When optics as science was really begun! C Em F CWhile flashes of lightning illumined his page, G7 CHe wrote down Snell‟s law, his great gift to the age!C G7 CSo if you wear glasses or like to fry ants, Am G G7Be grateful your lenses were not made by chance! C Em F CAstronomers hail him with each new-found star! G7 CMicroscopists toast him from each sleazy bar!
  6. 6. C F (or C) G (or G7) Am (or C)Singin‟ n1 sine theta-sub-1, hey, hey, hey, C F (or C) G (or G7) CEquals n2 sine theta-sub-2, hip hooray!
  7. 7. C G7 CNow some credit Harriot, others Descartes, Am G G7Both studied refraction, and both were real smart. C Em F CBut we prefer Willebrord van Rooijen Snell G7 CHe laid down the law, and he did it darn well!
  8. 8. C F (or C) G (or G7) Am (or C)Singin‟ n1 sine theta-sub-1, hey, hey, hey, C F (or C) G (or G7) CEquals n2 sine theta-sub-2, hip hooray!

  10. 10. • To the tune:”The Old Folks At Home”• Music and original words by Stephen Foster• C is a comfortable key• Written to assist NCEA2 learners
  11. 11. When a thing is thrown and it zips off It will chase a parabolic arc We can do this with a gun or ball Or even Fido‟s stick when in the parkAn object that‟s not held up by anythingWill plunge to earth like concrete in free- fall As well as that, in a horizontal sense There is no force that pushes it at all
  12. 12. Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is freeVertically, everything that‟s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g”
  13. 13. Projectiles are objects that are in the air Free from almost all external force We ignore all lift & thrust & drag but weMust include the vector, weight, of course To find the range of anything that‟s thrown about We need to find the time until it lands The vertical velocity, when t is noughtCombined with “g” will put it in our hands
  14. 14. Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is freeVertically, everything that‟s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g”
  15. 15. Finally, now we know our time of flight And the constant horizontal speed We can find the distance „til the object drops And thus we then have all the stuff we need
  16. 16. Horizontally, its speed is set Of acceleration that way, it is freeVertically, everything that‟s not held up Accelerates to earth, with value “g”
  17. 17. • To the tune:”Baby Blue”• Music and original words by George Baker• G is a comfortable key to sing it in• The purposes of the song are to:• Help students understand why energy is released in nuclear reactions (AS 3.5-90522)• Explain why BOTH fission and fusion release energy• Show that c2 is the link between mass and energy.
  18. 18. Henri Becquerel looked in his drawer And what he saw there he‟d not seen beforeUranium fogged the photo paper although it was wrapped From where did this energy come? In total a remarkable sumThe potential was enormous if only this resource could be tapped
  19. 19. Nucleus, the nucleusElusive source of high energy Extremely small, almost no volume at allAnd Rutherford gave it an I.D.
  20. 20. The amount of energy did amaze Alpha, Beta and Gamma raysAnd nobody knew just what it was that powered the Sun “Mass and energy” (said Einstein) “Are equivalent”; their values entwine C2 is the ratio; 90 thousand trillion to one
  21. 21. Nucleus, the nucleusElusive source of high energy Extremely small, almost no volume at allAnd Rutherford gave it an I.D.
  22. 22. Fission is an energy source Fusion powers stars, and our Sun, of courseThe puzzle is, they‟re opposites yet both of them can generate heat The secret at the very heart Is the “mass per nucleon” U-shaped chartComing in from each end will drop “m” and give off “E” – now that‟s neat
  23. 23. Nucleus, the nucleusElusive source of high energy Extremely small, almost no volume at allAnd Rutherford gave it an I.D.
  24. 24. • To the tune:”Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”• (F is a comfortable key to sing it in)
  25. 25. Simple Harmonic MotionHarmonic motion, simple to seeSimple Harmonic MotionOne on T gives frequency
  26. 26. A bouncing swingbridge; a korimako sings Harmonic motion, simple to see A natural frequency seen for all things One on T gives frequency All has mass and springiness Harmonic motion, simple to seeIf you have more k then the period‟s less One on T gives frequency
  27. 27. Simple Harmonic MotionHarmonic motion, simple to seeSimple Harmonic MotionOne on T gives frequency
  28. 28. S.H.M. – an energised state Harmonic motion, simple to seeThe energy cycles too; with twice the rate One on T gives frequency Energy shows exponential decay Harmonic motion, simple to see Subcritical damping makes it that way One on T gives frequency
  29. 29. Simple Harmonic MotionHarmonic motion, simple to seeSimple Harmonic MotionOne on T gives frequency
  30. 30. S.H.M. can be diagnosed Harmonic motion, simple to see “a” proportional to “y” but the signs are opposed One on T gives frequency The field of applications; wide and big Harmonic motion, simple to seeSo get your head around the waves from trig. One on T gives frequency
  31. 31. Simple Harmonic MotionHarmonic motion, simple to seeSimple Harmonic MotionOne on T gives frequency
  32. 32. • To the tune:”Mockingbird Hill”• Music and original words by Vaughn Horton• F is a comfortable key
  33. 33. Faraday is the chappie whose name we all sayWell almost, we leave off the suffix bit, “ay” Capacitance is measured in Coulombs per VoltBut Farads is easier; a better result
  34. 34. Faraday is the chappie whose name we all sayWell almost, we leave off the suffix bit, “ay” Capacitance is measured in Coulombs per VoltBut Farads is easier; a better result
  35. 35. If you take some electrons from a metal sheetAnd give them to its partner, symmetrical, neat Then you‟ll separate charge and store energy The capacitance will be E nought, A upon d ( oA/d) Capacitors act as electrical springs Their stored energy can do handy things Like saving your data when the battery‟s impaired The energy stored is a half C V squared (E=1/2CV2)
  36. 36. Faraday is the chappie whose name we all sayWell almost, we leave off the suffix bit, “ay” Capacitance is measured in Coulombs per VoltBut Farads is easier; a better result
  37. 37. And in AC circuits the voltage flip flops(and) Therefore the current through the cap barely stops This flip flopping current has power to impress A nice, smoothed out value is IRMS But the currents that flow, VC will retardTheir ratio is measured in Ohms, that‟s not hardBut the Ohms do not measure resistance you see As the energy‟s returned, it‟s reactance, XC
  38. 38. Faraday is the chappie whose name we all sayWell almost, we leave off the suffix bit, “ay” Capacitance is measured in Coulombs per VoltBut Farads is easier; a better result
  39. 39. If the frequency rises, reactance then dropsThere‟s more current flowing, less time for the stops The same will occur if C‟s value does rise Less reactance again, that can‟t be a surprise If you lift f or C, the reactance will dropNothing else affects it, just those two, full stop. Two pi times their product, viz 2 fC Then find the reciprocal; voila, XC
  40. 40. Faraday is the chappie whose name we all sayWell almost, we leave off the suffix bit, “ay” Capacitance is measured in Coulombs per VoltBut Farads is easier; a better result
  41. 41. • The tune, dance moves and web link all are secret until after completion!• Physics Words by Anonymous of Haverford College in the USA• Only one verse so it‟s easy to learn• F is a comfortable key
  42. 42. Snell‟s Law, n times the sine of the thetaIf the n gets lower then the theta will get greater If the n be greater then the light will get there later Hey, n sine theta!
  43. 43. • The tune and dance moves are from the Macarena by Los Del Rio• The web link to the file is http://www.haverford.edu/physics /songs/macsnell.htm• A database of Physics Songs exists at http://www.haverford.edu/physics -astro/songs/
