Pigs fly in CHS physics class

Campbellsville High School students recently made pigs fly.

 

AP physics students in Cheryl Dicken’s class recently studied forces and their effect on objects.

 

Students were each given a plastic pig in which they were to make “fly” by using forces and then calculate its velocity.

 

Dicken asked her students to consider the forces acting on the pig to make it “fly” and write an equation to reflect their findings.

 

In the end, students saw their pigs “fly” while attached to the ceiling by string.
