Science really gets you thinking, doesn't it? Sometimes you end up with more questions than answers! The task of finding out the answer and really grappling with the concepts of Physics can be great fun, particularly when you're part of a group and you're all trying to work together.
Over on our Google+ Physics Community we noticed an interesting question asked by one of our followers. We wondered if you've seen it and been able to answer it?
"A drowsy cat spots a flowerpot that sails first up and then down past an open window.
The pot is in view for a total of 0.50s, and the top-to-bottom height of the window is 2.00m.
How high above the window top does the flowerpot go?"
Where would you start in trying to figure out the solution? We'd love to see how you arrive at the answer, so please leave your answer in the Comments box below.

We stumbled across these great physics questions, from Amherst College, and wonderful cartoons, drawn by the artist Bruce Aller from Upton, Massachusetts. The Physics cartoons have been displayed on the buses serving the Five-College community (Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College & the University of Massachusetts - Amherst). We think they're great for getting some good scientific conversations going.. what do you think?
