Fluids Physlet-Based Curriculum

These examples of curricular material appear in Section 8.11. Follow a link on the left to go to the individual Physlet problems found in that section and several bonus problems only available on this CD. Below is a brief description of each animation.

Chapter Problems:

8.11.1: Blood flows in an artery with a partial blockage from left to right in the animation. A blood platelet is shown moving through the artery .   8.11.2: The initial reading on the spring scale is 19 N. One full revolution of the spring scale is 10 N. 8.11.3: A block of wood in a bucket of water is placed in an elevator as shown in the animation. 

 

Additional Problems:

8.11.ap 1:  A block of wood in a bucket of water is placed in an elevator as shown in the animation. The picture on the right represents the orientation of the wood when the elevator is stationary. 8.11.ap 2: The simulation above is color coded as follows: blue is water, red is oil, and brown is a wood block initially floating at the interface. 
8.11.ap 3: An ice cube melts in a glass of water as shown in the animation.
