    Great job figuring out what happened! That skill is going to go a LONG way in science… keep up the good work!

    (Did I mention that a lot of what we do in science is figure out what went “wrong”… e.g. “differently that we expected”?)

    is my calculator busted??? I got that sqrt 30 sin 38*/9.81^2 = 3.397….; so why did I get a different answer

Have a question?
