One of the highlights of the DUML summer physics is our four hour cruise to Cape Lookout National Seashore. Weather permitting, we head out on the Susan Hudson, get dropped off about an hour later at the dock in the bay.
Students generally have a great time relaxing. This year the trip was planned for a friday afternoon immediately following a tough exam covering mechanics through torque and angular momentum.
Fun in the Water — the topics covered following the angular momentum include fluids (Archimedes and Bernoulli) and mechanical waves — quite appropriate 🙂
The general effect of a intense study, a rigorous exam, some fun at the Cape and a rolling boat trip back to DUML can be seen in this next photo.
Aneitra is ready to get her Captain’s license…
We are currently finishing our oscillations lab and getting ready for another exam this Friday — memories of a lovely day at the cape remain sweet!
