This Week in Physics
For Tuesday please take notes on PODCAST 3: Electric Fields. We’ll go over this in class and will then do assignment 3 (followed by a quiz, as announced) and the Electric Fields Lab. When announced please take notes on PODCAST 4: Electric Potential Energy, Electric Potential, and Potential Difference.

Cool Science of the Week
Did you know plants have their own internet? Thin threadlike fungi that grow underground connect the roots of multiple plants, sometimes over vast distances, and allow the plants to send each other nutrients as well as warning signals. Weak seedlings are helped to survive by the shared nutrients, and plants that receive warnings of impending diseases or pests begin early immune responses to protect themselves.
