Description of the Experience
In one experience, I had to verify the frictional force and measure the coefficient of static friction. In this experience I didn't have any problem; on the contrary, this experience helped me to confirm what I studied on the theory of physics: an object always has a frictional force on the plane on which is supported, when the force with which is pulled this object is greater than the friction force, the object leaves the point on which it was supported and it moves in the direction of the force by which it is pulled. Doing this experience with woods boards, I verified with my eyes that this theory of physics is correct.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
