Showing 8 experiments that use the Standard Equipment Kit: Essential Physics.

High School / Physics

Velocity, Position, and Time

How do we predict and object’s position at a later time? Graphs and equations are valuable methods for describing the motion of an object.

High School / Physics

Static and Kinetic Friction

What determines the force of friction? Friction is everywhere and can be either helpful or wasteful depending on the situation.

High School / Physics

Hooke's Law

How are force and displacement related when stretching a spring? In this investigation you will measure force from the spring, and spring deformation...

High School / Physics

Newton's Second Law

How is an object’s acceleration related to the net force acting on the object? When the forces acting on an object are unbalanced, the object...

High School / Physics

Acceleration on an Inclined Plane

What is the acceleration of an object down an inclined plane? What do the motion graphs of an object down an inclined plane look like? Galileo...

High School / Physics

Work and the Force Versus Distance Graph

How are force, distance, and work related graphically? To lift a mass, you must do work on it against the gravitational force.

High School / Physics

Inclined Plane and the Conservation of Energy

What law governs the energy transformations of motion on an inclined plane? If you have ever skied down a mountain, biked down a hill, or ridden...

Advanced Placement / Physics

Newton's Second Law

In this lab, students use a motion sensor to determine the relationship between a system’s mass, acceleration, and the net force being applied...
