# Physics Haiku (Chapter 8 Reflections)

 mosquito hits car those unenlightened think SPLAT we know "delta P" Ernest Rutherford The proof is in the pudding? Grad student says no Mick Jagger says best, "Shadoobie, scattered, scattered.." Physicist at heart? Dan Hennessey laughs, "That is a two beer problem." Research? Perhaps not! - Andrew W. Harsh icy hail hammers on the tall hills but they remain - Bryan Hate between bodies coexists with the headache after the touch. - Denia You cannot kill an Elephant with a B.B. gun That's too elastic. Physics is fruity - Plum pudding model; what's next? Strawberry field theory? Huge collisions end In orbiting bodies. What's P? Wait till next chapter… Physics is my life Maybe I can still switch to A business major. - Dylan The ball hits the wall Delta p equals 2 p momentum conserved - Joe R. Out of the dark night Come the raindrops, rippling and Waking the tranquil ocean - Kristine Momentum is conservéd; We use this to find out The velocity of the pion. - Bunker momentum and energy working together to solve many equations with many unknowns - Erin Thrown against his will, Onto a mass of larger will (rest energy or mass), He was thrown back; Thrown onto a mass of lesser will (rest energy or mass), He threw away the mass, Without a change in his own skill (velocity); But when thrown onto a mass of like will (mass), He came back with half his skill (velocity), Generously sharing it with the other mass. - Rohit A rolling stone Besieged by (external) forces Gathers momentum. - Sarathi impact parameter is small enough, no external forces, momentum is conservered, nomatter what angles two collide inelastically or elastically. - Andreas The Heavy collide With the Light -- what happens now? Physics shall guide us. Plum Pudding? Surely Not! Nuclei and orbitals: These create our world! Universe defined by collisions -- a world of tiny billiards. Center of system? Center of the Universe? It's all relative. - Will Courage shows the ping-pong ball as it goes skidding Trying to push a heavy bowling ball that is resting But as nature puts it, "You've got to be kidding". - Yash Together two people are whole Their energy and happiness completel Separately, although no happiness is lost, they are incomplete. - Sara I watch cartoons. The coyote didn't do Physics at CMU. - Usmeet Particles collide The center avoids folly To act is to conserve. - Nick Using collisions We can find the nucleus For a small atom For an elastic We know that kinetic is Conserved for all I am so hopeless No more new fundamental Where can I find peace Alpha with a charge Positive as repelled from The gold nucleus Add change momentum Of system to change surround And you get zero. - Mike B. Moving particle Easily excited mass Photon ejected - Matt V.W.
