In this lab, students will use motion sensors to determine how force influences the motion of an object. Students will observe that an object’s motion is unchanged in the absence of an external force.
In this activity, students will compare the change in momentum before and after a collision to the force experienced during the collision (impulse).
In this lab, students will make predictions about how a cart's speed and velocity differ. Then, they'll test their predictions using motion sensors.
In this lab, students will use motion sensors to measure the velocity of a cart as it travels down an inclined track and collides with an obstacle.
In this activity, students will use force sensors to measure forces produced during a collision. Then, they'll use their data to determine the best material for protecting fragile objects during a collision.
In this activity, students will measure and compare changes in momentum for an object during elastic and inelastic collisions.
