Swinging Pendulum (for High School)
This activity shows students the engineering importance of understanding the laws of mechanical energy. More specifically, it demonstrates how potential energy can be converted to kinetic energy and back again. Given a pendulum height, students calculate and predict how fast the pendulum will swing by using the equations for potential and kinetic energy. The equations will be justified as students experimentally measure the speed of the pendulum and compare theory with reality.
3.5.3 Address resolution on LANS A host finds the hardware address that corresponds to an IP address by referring to a look-up table that contains the translation between the two types of address. The look-up table could be maintained manually by a network administrator, but this would be very slow. A far better solution is for the host to maintain the table automatically. Whenever a host has to send a datagram to an unknown IP address it sends a message to all the other hosts on the LAN. The host that recognises the IP addr
