The water testing indicated the water quality was "good" for all three locations of the Greenbrier River. These tests were uniform in what was tested: temperature, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, conductivity, and pH.
The tour of the C&O Railroad Museum in Clifton, Virginia was both informative and very enjoyable. The staff were extremely helpful and even gave us a ride on a model train.
In the end, I hope this blog helps to serve us in our classroom. The friends and experiences of the week will continue to play a role in our ongoing discussions. Moreover, this blog was an attempt on my part to relate each of the major concept areas we cover to the experiences of the of this project. Most physics texts cover Motion, Forces, Work and Energy, Momentum and Collisions, Impulses, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Rotational Mechanics, Waves and Optics, Electrcity, Magnetism, and Modern Physics. Of these, only Magnetism was not addressed through my experiences with this project and discussed in a blog entry; I alone bear the burden for not having it addressed.
I hope you have enjoyed this experience as much as I have. I do look forward to our continued collaboration, for this good luck it's not good-bye.
