Matthew Carnaghi, Spring 2014 NCS-AAPT Meeting

Computational Model of a Weak Spring in Uniform Circular Motion Contributed Oral Presentation at the Spring 2014 NCS-AAPT Meeting in Boone, North Carolina A computational model of a weak spring spinning in a circle has been written using Easy Java Simulations (EJS). The model calculates the spring extension in its quasi-static state. The model takes […]

A Survey for Pulsating Hot Subdwarf Stars with SKYNET Contributed Oral Presentation at the 2014 High Point University Research and Creative Works Symposium Hot subdwarf stars are one of the least understood stages of stellar evolution. Some show pulsations that help reveal their structure and future evolution. We are currently monitoring several subdwarfs with robotic […]

Framed: Physics in Non-Inertial Reference Frames Poster at the 2014 High Point University Research and Creative Works Symposium This project demonstrates the concept of fictitious forces, which are apparent forces observed from an accelerating reference frame. We captured video from non-inertial reference frames and analyzed it to determine mathematical models for each fictitious force. We […]
