More on Physics of Superheroes

My physics class has 2 awesome things going on this week. First, our unit on energy is ending with presentations of the superheroes the students have invented to demonstrate kinetic, potential, conservation of energy, momentum, impulse, and heat transfer. Pictures are coming, I promise!

Second, we’re diving into kinematics — my favorite topic in high school physics. For the curious among you, check out this week in physics class at Chrysalis Experiential Academy. The coolest superhero calculation we’re doing this week is “how fast does Superman have to fly to circle the globe?” in this clip from Superman I (1978).
