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.
How is the shape of an object’s position-time, velocity-time, and acceleration-time graph related to itsmotion? Experimentally determine the relationships between a cart’s position-time, velocity-time,and acceleration-time...
In this lab, students use a Smart Cart and a dynamics track to investigate speed and velocity.
How is the total momentum of a two-object system affected by an explosion? Experimentally determine if linear momentum is conserved in a system that experiences an explosion.
In this activity, students will measure and compare changes in momentum for an object during elastic and inelastic collisions.
In this lab, students will use pairs of motion sensors to explore the concept of momentum and its conservation during common types of collisions.
