Light speed.

Hydrogen and oxygen


Presentation, exercises and report on subjects

Goals and Aim

1. Students will know light speed
2. They will know what H and O2 is
3. The students will understand electomagnetism
4. Inform about subjects
5. Achieve greater understanding of the Earth's movement and how it effects us
6. Inform about practical uses of these theories


1. Explain light speed and its significance
2. Explain H and O2
3. Explain electromagnetism
4. A good grade in Physics
5. Give a clear and interesting presentation
6. Be concise and professional during the lesson

A. Introduction-

1.This is light speed-299 792 458 m / s
2. H= hydrogen and O2 is 2 parts hydrogen or water through magnetic and electric energy
4. How does Earth rotate?
5. What is the Coriolis Effect and how can you experience it?
6. Any formulas adjacent to it

B. Development-

1. Draw on the board what each is
2. Introducing the concept of the Foucault Pendulum and Foucault himself
3. Short video of the pendulum and the Earth moving together
4. Diagrams and formulas for both concepts

C. Practice-

1. Have the students discuss pros and cons of theory
2. Explanation of practical uses of the Coriolis Effect and Foucault's pendulum
3. Simple, logical examples of exercises

D. Independent Practice-

1. Have the students write down thoughts
2. Have the students draw a model particle collider
3. More individual exercises (not many, maybe just 2-3, but enough to test if anybody actually paid attention)

E. Checking for understanding-

1. Oral questions from teachers to students
2. Ask if the lesson helped them in any way
3. Take down their feedback
4. Review what the students just made

G. Closure-

1. Assign home work for the students to research particle collision.
2. Conclusion: what they must remember from the lesson
3. Thank students for participation
