I guess Gravity works in cartooning too... after all, the first rule of cartoon physics is that gravity doesn't work until you look down. Bob should have never looked down...
I guess magnetism works the same way as my cat. I seem to always repel her... I guess we both have a negative charge... because she defiantly isn't positive!
MAN ON SCREEN-Hello and welcome to the SCIENCE IS EVERYWHERE SHOW! I am your host, Dr. Blooper. I will explain to you the forces of gravity, friction, elastic, and magnetism! I bet that you can relate to all four of the most common forces!
Dr.Blooper- First up we have GRAVITY. Gravity is a force that causes everything in the universe that had mass or energy to be brought towards each other. On Earth, Gravity pulls everything down towards the center. Gravity was officially discovered and observed when Sir Issac Newton had an apple dropped on his head. This event caused him to further experiment and discover the many things we know about gravity today.
Dr.Blooper- next we have magnetism. Magnetism is created by the magnetic fields that surround the Earth. These fields are an effect of the iron and nickel constantly churning in the center of the Earth. This then creates the north and south poles. A compass is a device that uses magnetism in order to work. The compass needle is made of iron, so it is attracted to the magnetic fields. Iron, nickel, and cobalt are the only metals that are magnetic.
That's All Folks!
Dr.Blooper-Friction is the resistance he action of one surface or object rubbing against another. There are four main types of friction-rolling, sliding, static, and fluid. Rolling friction is when an object rolls across a surface. Sliding friction occurs when two solid surfaces SLIDE across each other. Static friction is when objects are resting on a surface. Fluid friction occurs when an object moves through a fluid. This fluid can be air or water.
Dr.Blooper- The idea of elasticity came from Robert Hooke: the force a spring exerts depends on how far it is stretched (Hooke's Law). Elasticity depends on four things- gravity, inertia, force, and Newtons Third Law. Gravity when handling elasticity, depends on mass and distance. Inertia is the resistance of an object to change its velocity (rate of speed). Force equals mass times acceleration, in order to measure the elasticity. Finally, NTL is every action has an equal but opposite reaction.
Good thing I wore my Super Stretchy Ultimate Elastic Waistband Pants! Now I cant eat as much as I want!
Dr. Blooper- Friction, Magnetism, Gravity, and Elasticity are all around us, just like science! Hope you had fun watching the SCIENCE IS EVERYWHERE SHOW! This is your host, Dr. Blooper.
WOW! I guess science REALLY is everywhere! I was able to relate to all four!
