Activity No. _____ Activity Title: Scientific Notation Learning Targets: A. To write numbers using scientific notation. B. To explain why scientific notation is used.

Date: ______________

Consider the distance that light travels in one second. This is about 299800000 meters. For scientists and students, writing numbers in this way can be a waste of time, energy, ink, and paper. Therefore, for very large and very small numbers, we use what is now called as Scientific Notation. We take the example above. Since 299800000 = 2.998 x 100, 000, 000 We have the standard scientific notation, 299800000 = 2.998 x 108 . This is read as, Two point nine-nine-eight times ten to the power eight. We see that a number in scientific notation has two parts: the number with a decimal point after the first digit, and a power of ten. Exercise: Write the following numbers in scientific notation. a. 3450000 = ______________________ b. 70680000 = _____________________ For numbers less than one or very small numbers, the power or exponent of ten becomes Negative. Since, for example, 0. 050 = 5 = 5 100 102 We have the scientific notation, 0.050 = 5.0 x 10-2 Exercise: Write 0.00000036 in scientific notation. _____________________________.

Activity No. _____ Date: ______________ Activity Title: Branches of Physics Learning Targets: A. To define each branch of physics. B. To classify the branches into classical and modern physics using any graphic organizer EE: Everything is connected to everything else Physics is divided into two main branches, the classical and the modern physics. Classical physics refers to the traditional topics in physics that were recognized and developed before the beginning of the 29th century. Modern physics on the other hand, refers to concepts in physics that have surfaced since the beginning of the 20th century, concerning mostly with the behavior of matter and energy under extreme conditions ( The very large and the very small ) Exercises: Classify the branches of physics using a network tree. Then, give one example under each branch of physics. Examples: Dynamics - flight of birds in air Astrophysics what keep stars and other heavenly bodies suspended in the sky.

Activity No. _____ Date: ______________ Activity Title: Physicists and Their Contributions Learning Targets: A.To list the names of some physicists and their contributions to physics. To identify the impact of the contributions/ inventions of at least three physicists to society.

There are several man and woman who contributed in the field of physics. Some were listed/recognized while others were not. Our native, Badjao, is considered physicists in their simplest way of life. The building of the boat and its parts to make it sail fast even if theres air resistance is really an application of some physical laws and principles. Exercises: 1. List down the names of some physicists and their contributions. 2. Choose three physicists and identify the impact of their contributions /inventions to the society.

Activity No. _____ Date: ______________ Activity Title: Fundamental and Derived Quantities Learning Targets: A. To differentiate fundamental from derived quantities. B. To distinguish fundamental from derived quantities. EE : Everything Changes In physics, most of the time were dealing with numbers. Thus, measurement always plays an important role in physics. Quantities could either be fundamental or derived quantities. Exercises: 1. How are fundamental quantities different from derived quantities?

2. List down at least seven fundamental and derived quantities and give their units. Fundamental Quantities 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Derived Quantities 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Units


3. Is knowledge on quantities important to our daily lives? Why?

Activity No. _____ Date: ______________ Activity Title: Metric System and Units Learning Targets: A. To answer the crossword puzzle on metric system and units. B. To identify the term/s described on measurements. People developed units of measurement based on body parts of the human body to facilitate communication. The use of standard units of measure can be traced back to ancient times. Ancient people used objects such as ropes, stones and sticks to measure other objects. They also created units based on body parts. However, body parts may vary from one person to another. Hence, people would give different measurements for the same length using the same unit. To eliminate such confusion, an International convention agreed to use standard units like meter. Thus, the metric system is used for a more convenient and accurate standard unit of measurement.

Activity No. _____ Date: ______________ Activity Title: Characteristics of Waves Learning Targets: A. To solve problems on characteristics of waves. B. To compute for frequency, speed and wavelength. * Characteristics of Waves * 1. Period (T) - time taken to make one complete revolution or vibration. T = time/ no. of revolution. Unit: s 2. frequency (f) - the number of vibrations per unit of time of any particle, usually measured as no. of vibrations per second. As with any SHM, the frequency is inversely related to the period, that is f = 1/T or f = no. of vib./ time or no. of cycles/time. Its unit is /s or hertz (Hz). 3. Amplitude (A) - the maximum displacement of any particle like the wave, measured from its equilibrium or undisturbed position; It is expressed in m or cm. 4. Wavelength ( ) - the distance between two successive crest or two successive trough. It is also the product of the wave velocity and the time. To compute for the , = v.t , where is the wavelength, v = velocity and t = time. 5. Wave velocity ( v )- the velocity with which any of the phase of the motion ( crest, trough or compression ). It is propagated through the medium. It is the ratio of the wavelength to the time. V= / t. It is

expressed in m or cm. Sample Problems: 1. Suppose a wave with a length of 1 m has a frequency of 3s, what is the speed of the wave? Given: = 1m f = 3 Hz or /s v =? v = / t = 1m/3s = 0.33 m/s 0.33 m/s 2. What is the wavelength of radio waves if it has a velocity of 2 m/s and a frequency of 3 Hz? Given: v = 2m/s, f = 3 Hz, = ? = v.f = 2 m/s ( 3/s ) = 6m 3. A certain wave makes 10 revolutions in 2 seconds. Find the period of the wave. Solution: T = ? T = time / no. of rev. or cycle = 2s / 10 rev. = O.2 s

or v = f, since f = 1/T = 1/3s, then v = 1m ( 1/3s ) =
