Homework Help: Unconventional Physics Problem

  1. Jan 25, 2005 #1
    My teacher informed me that on the exam there will be one "unconventional" physics question. Apparently, "something that we have never seen before". Seeing as this is a Grade 12 Physics class, and most of you have taken it before, would any of you have an idea of what such a question could be based on?

    It depends...
    Our teacher does something similar except he brings up questions we've never seen before based on a topic we've done, is that what your teacher means?

    Most likely.
    The units that we have done are: 2D Kinematics, 1-d and 2-d momentum (elastic, nonelastic, completely nonelastic), special relativity, energy, projectiles, etc. Nothing too complicated.

    something unconventional?

    if, in the past, the kinds of questions you've seen have been based on concepts from "one unit at a time", or just the unit you're studying at that time, the description might imply you could expect a question involving concepts from two of the units you listed, combined in one problem statement.

    just guessing, of course.... let us know what happened!

    Anyone else? The exam is tomorrow.

    Thanks to whoever participates.
