Tension Mass, Displacement, Angle on the TI-89: Video Transcript

This is a video from every step physics dot com
solving a physics problem step by step and also demonstrating how my downloadable
programs work in your TI 89 Titanium calculator and other TI calculators
for calculus and physics problems andlet’s get started
to access my physics menu in my programs you goona have to press second alpha
and put the letters p h y s i c s in here and then press alpha and put
the open and closed parenthesis press enter and you’re into my menu
you can see how many things there are many many things here
you I have that outlined in my outline that you can receive
but uhm we’re going demonstrate tension right now
so I’m gonna go up here get to the t’s
It’s all alphebetical and click on that
and you have all these choices here what they give you
what happens in a physics test is they give find acceleration
or find tension or find work or something like that
so you go to my menu whatever word that is what they are finding
and then I put down as many variables as I have seen on a
on choices so right now were gonna
let’s do mass, displacement and angle and I can push the number four
or scroll to it with the cursor I’m going to push number four
and you have to press alpha before you put anything in these entry lines here
so press alpha eight put in eight
I give you the choice of grams or kilograms lot of times that happens
and we’re going to go alpha maybe four
and alpha maybe twelve point five degrees I always show you what you’ve entered
so you can change it if you want if you’ve made a mistake
I say it’s ok I also tell you some hints about the problem
and maybe sometimes show you a diagram but here’s the two angles and what they are
talking about in this situation and how much tension is on this line here
and so here’s the formula and here’s the way the calculations work out
you write all of this out on your paper you get a
since physics tests are scored on partial credit
class curves you’ve just got a hundred percent on a problem
and way over the other people in the class a pretty neat huh?
