Session Summaries by Physics Tutors

Burien, WA Physics tutoring
Continued our discussion of refraction and thin lenses; also introduced internal reflection and critical angles. Worked through a web assignment: questions covered solving for angles of incidence or refraction and determining object, image and focal lengths for both converging and diverging lenses. Student had some confusion with signs of focal length and image distance but after reviewing the table in his textbook, was able to successfully solve problems. Showed how critical angle led to an angle of refraction of 90*/parallel to surface; he was able to solve for critical angles based on materials that light was passing through. I feel confident in his grasp of the subjects.

We finished reviewing chapter 26 on magnetism. Today we worked on the Biot-Savart law and finding magnetic field using the differential equation. This is a difficult concept because the student must visualize the material in 3D in addition to finding the appropriate integrals. We will reconvene tomorrow for more review before the exam. I told him to finish the problems that the professor had assigned so we can go over them before his quiz on Thursday.

Today, we covered batteries, and battery conventions, as well as resistors in series and parallel. Further, we also practiced Thevenizing the circuits to obtain the equivalent circuit, and that using the equivalent circuit determined the current and voltage in each resistor of the original circuit. The student was brilliant! She caught onto the theory quickly, and was able to apply it nearly instantly. We will meet again on Thursday and then begin going over more complicated circuits.
