Q2Physic: SEPTA Project

By: Melanie Harrington, Thomas Jeffcoat, Amy Chen, Reginald Simmons

This quarter in physics, the junior class was assigned a project hat applied their knowledge of forces and Newton's Laws of Motion to educate a selected audience about how they could use this knowledge to their advantage while taking public transportation. Our group decided to give advice to other people who don't like to come in physical contact with those around them on the bus. We came up with three specific scenarios and supported our advice using Free Body Diagrams, System Schemas and acted out skits. We hope you enjoy our video and gain some insight into the physics of SEPTA.
