Physics PBL Exercises

Page history last edited by Tracey Madden 9 years, 9 months ago

Core Physics PBL – An Insurance Scam?

‘An Insurance Scam’ is a first year PBL project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to answer a set of questions posed to them. Each group will work in a couple of pairs, each pair performing some experiments and then sharing their findings with the other. The theory required for this PBL is written in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler), although some rational thinking may be required to extend this knowledge or apply it to an area not yet understood by students.

Students will have four laboratory sessions to perform their experiments, as well as two seminars with facilitators. For each of the seminars students should submit answers to set question, which will then be checked and corrected if they need to be. The questions are designed to give ideas or direction to the laboratory work undertaken.

Core Physics PBL – Automated Searches for Leaking Water Pipes in the Desert.

‘Automated Searches for Leaking Water Pipes in the Desert’ is a 2nd year PBL project, undertaken by students organised into small groups working as a team. Students will have a preliminary computer simulated laboratory session, then two experimental laboratory sessions accompanied by two facilitated group meeting. There will be two additional unsupervised group meetings for tying up loose ends and for preparation of conference presentations and reports. Teams will work in pairs, with each group testing one of two systems.

It is required that groups compare information and ideas regarding their methods and findings. For each of the group meetings students should be able to present findings and participate in discussion regarding progress made and setting realistic aims for the group as a whole.

Core Physics PBL – LEDs as Traffic Lights.

LEDs as Traffic Lights’ is a Group Research Project, undertaken by students organised into small groups working as teams. This project is divided into two main sections. Firstly you are concerned with using LEDs as traffic lights. Your group is to perform experiments regarding LEDs in order to ascertain information about their band gap and composition. Secondly, you are to consider using LEDs as pressure sensors. This is a computational task, so requires programming, most likely using C.

Core Physics PBL – Otherton Airport: Crosswinds are Critical.

‘Otherton Airport’ is a first year Group Research project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to address the problem posed to them. The basic theory required for the project can be found in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler), although it may be necessary to research some additional theory.

The task set in the accompanying project brief is designed to test your ability to work as a team on a problem that requires theoretical analysis, laboratory practical work and some computation. The problem allows multiple approaches so there is no single correct answer either in the final outcome or in the lines of attack. There is no predetermined list of what must be included and there are too many possibilities for you to complete everything. You will however be limited by the equipment available and the timescale; you will also receive guidance from your lecturers and facilitators.

Core Physics PBL – Sugar Capacity.

‘Sugar Capacity’ is a first year PBL project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to answer a set of questions posed to them. The theory required for this PBL is written in the course books (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler and Mathematical Physics Vol2) although some rational thinking may be required to extend this knowledge or apply it to an area not yet understood by students.

Students will have four laboratory sessions to perform their experiments, as well as two seminars with facilitators. For each of the seminars students should submit answers to set question, which will then be checked and corrected if they need to be. The questions are designed to give ideas or direction to the laboratory work undertaken.

Core Physics PBL – White Knuckle Ride.

White Knuckle Ride’ is a Group Research Project, undertaken by students organised into small groups working as teams. Most, if not all, of the required theory can be found in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler).

You will have four laboratory sessions to perform the experiments, as well as two workshops with facilitators. For each of the workshops you should prepare answers to set question, which will be marked at the workshops. These workshop questions are designed to support the practical work by providing ideas and relevant theory.
