2019 Physics Prize Problem

The 2019 Physics Prize Problem is out!  The Physics Prize Problem is funded by Carroll Porter, ’32 and in memory of Edgar L Andreas ’69, and is awarded annually for the best solution to a complex physical problem.  This year’s mind-boggling physics problem concerns the oscillations of a teeter-totter. 

Check out a detailed statement of the problem, posted around SMC or available at http://course.knox.edu/physics130.  Any Knox student may submit a solution.  Turn in your solution to Prof. Tom Moses, D116 SMC, by 4 p.m. on April 29 and win a place in Knox history (and a cash prize).
