IYPT Summary and Challenge Initiation Des Duthie, Kent Hogan & Kerry Parker

In 10 minutes What is IYPT? The challenges for the 1 st New Zealand Institute of Physics Education Section Physics Battle

What is IYPT? International Young Physicist’s Tournament Teams of 5 students from around 25 countries Annual Mid-year Croatia 2008, China 2009…. Te Patuki o nga Hinengaro Ahupungao Tournament for NZ schools Teams of 3 students enter regional tournaments with national finals in March.

6 months to solve 7 problems

1 st New Zealand Institute of Physics Education Section Teachers’ Physics Battle 3 problems in 2 weeks Emptying the bottle The rate at which liquid empties from an upside-down bottle can be change by quickly ‘moving’ the bottle to make the liquid inside the bottle rotate. Investigate this phenomenon. Optical water pipe-line A vessel is filled with liquid (e.g. water). The jet flows out in the bottom of the vessel. The light source is placed so, that the horizontal beam of light falls into the water jet. Find the conditions which provide the jet to operate like a light guide. Candle on the wind Estimate the minimal speed of wind which can blow out the flame of a candle?
