NameDescription Collisions in 2D LabA steel ramp, steel ball, and marble help simulate a 2D collision. Acceleration down an incline labA pasco track and cart are used to find the acceleration graphically. Atwood's Machine LabNewton's 2nd law is used to determine the acceleration of a moving system. Balloon VectorsA helium balloon is released to find a RESULTANT. Centripetal Force Lab using an airplaneThis lab uses a ceiling airplane toy to investigate centripetal force. Centripetal Force LabCircular Motion is used to determine the mass of a stopper. Coathook CannonA simple coat hangar is used to study conservation of energy and projectile motion. Constant Velocity LabA liquid filled tube containing a bubble is used to measure its velocity graphically. Coulomb's Law LabThis lab uses newtonian mechanics and coulomb's law to measure the electric charge on a pith ball. Designing an ExperimentA guide to help a student design an open ended experiment on their own. Direct & Inverse Relationships LabStudents conduct 5 experiments in order to investigate common patterns in science. Friction on an InclineThe experiment uses a friction block to calculate the coefficient of kinetic friction 3 different ways. Horizontally Launched ProjectilesIn this lab, a dart is shot horizontally in order to calculate the muzzle velocity. Mass of a car labStudents push a car/truck with a bathroom scale and use newton's second law to determine the car's mass. Spherical Lenses_LabA simple lab that measures the focal length of a concave mirror. Measuring the speed of lightA microwave and jumbo marshmallows are used to create a standing wave in order to measure the speed of light. Mirror & Lens prelabThis prelab is done BEFORE the spherical mirror and lens lab. Focuses on ray diagrams. Spherical Mirror LabA simple lab that measures the focal length of a concave mirror. Momentum CannonA dramatic experiment using conservation of momentum. Easily done as a class demo. Newton's Law of GravitationA laser and diffraction grating are used to simulate the inverse square nature of gravitation.
