Overview

 How to create scroll bars in Excel
 Examples of scroll bars
– RL circuits
– standing waves
– kinematics
 Worksheet to go with kinematics
How to use scroll bars

 Click on View menu,Toolbars ,Forms
 Formatting the Scroll Bar
– zero minimum
– integer incremental change
– page change
 Creating a simple position vs. time
graph

 Standing Waves
– two identical waves passing each other
and their sum
 RL Circuits
– resistor and inductor in a series circuit
– total current
– total voltage, voltage across inductor
and voltage across resistor

 Kinematics Graphs
– d vs. t (constant velocity)
– v vs. t (constant acceleration)
– d vs. t (constant acceleration)
Worksheet Activity

 Used in Regular Physics, but
accessible to higher levels as well
 Explores relationships between
graphs and kinematics equations
 Took 35-40 minutes with each
student on a computer.
 Initial velocity on d vs. t (a  0) is the
most difficult
