DocumentAtwood's Machine LabNewton's 2nd law is used to determine the acceleration of a moving system.
DocumentBalloon VectorsA helium balloon is released to find a RESULTANT.
DocumentCentripetal Force Lab using an airplaneThis lab uses a ceiling airplane toy to investigate centripetal force.
DocumentCentripetal Force LabCircular Motion is used to determine the mass of a stopper.
DocumentCoathook CannonA simple coat hangar is used to study conservation of energy and projectile motion.
DocumentConstant Velocity LabA liquid filled tube containing a bubble is used to measure its velocity graphically.
DocumentCoulomb's Law LabThis lab uses newtonian mechanics and coulomb's law to measure the electric charge on a pith ball.
DocumentDesigning an ExperimentA guide to help a student design an open ended experiment on their own.
DocumentDirect & Inverse Relationships LabStudents conduct 5 experiments in order to investigate common patterns in science.
DocumentFriction on an InclineThe experiment uses a friction block to calculate the coefficient of kinetic friction 3 different ways.
DocumentHorizontally Launched ProjectilesIn this lab, a dart is shot horizontally in order to calculate the muzzle velocity.
DocumentMass of a car labStudents push a car/truck with a bathroom scale and use newton's second law to determine the car's mass.
DocumentSpherical Lenses_LabA simple lab that measures the focal length of a concave mirror.
DocumentMeasuring the speed of lightA microwave and jumbo marshmallows are used to create a standing wave in order to measure the speed of light.
DocumentMirror & Lens prelabThis prelab is done BEFORE the spherical mirror and lens lab. Focuses on ray diagrams.
DocumentSpherical Mirror LabA simple lab that measures the focal length of a concave mirror.
DocumentMomentum CannonA dramatic experiment using conservation of momentum. Easily done as a class demo.
DocumentNewton's Law of GravitationA laser and diffraction grating are used to simulate the inverse square nature of gravitation.
