Description of the Experience
My experience on this report is positive, because it helped me a lot to understand the friction and how you calculate it. This experience makes it easier to understand the friction because it gives a simple and practical example.
I think all physics experiments in which we use the dynamometer have in common the difficulty of using it in an appropriate manner. It is very easy to make gross errors (errors that could be avoided) and therefore does not have a correct measurement.
It is absolutely not easy to maintain a constant adjustment of the instrument in all experiments.


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.
