Cutting Up in College Physics

As part of College Physics class’ “Work and Energy” study, students were given a ball at a random height and a cup placed at a random distance away. They then had to calculate what height was needed to lift the pendulum so that upon release, it would be cut by a razor blade and then fall into the cup. Gigi Pytte and Emily Johnson (pictured) were successful in their first attempt!
