Force equals mass times acceleration. Physics whizzes apply this formula to six different diagrams, solving eight acceleration problems in all. This is a practical assignment, perfect for homework when practicing Newton's second law of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Unit VII Energy: WS 3a Energy Transfer and Storage

Here is a nifty worksheet on energy transfer. Physics fanatics analyze a diagram and state whether or not friction is involved. They sketch bar graphs and draw energy flow diagrams for each system as well. Circular motion, movement up...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Motion and Inertia

Physics learners make magic with inertia! By pulling paper out from under a stack of blocks or batting a rubber ball into motion, physics scholars' eyes will be opened! Don't think that this lesson is only fun and games; plenty of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Newton's Second Law

Three memorable activities build on each other to give physics masters a firm grasp of Newton's Second Law. Pupils play with a lab cart on a flat surface and on an incline to confirm that force is equal to mass times acceleration. In the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Regents High School Examination - Physics 2010

Give every type of learner in your physics class an opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned throughout the year. From analyzing tables and graphs, to evaluating diagrams and solving problems, there is an outstanding variety of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Physical Setting: Physics Exam 2004

Twelve pages of mostly multiple-choice questions comprise this comprehensive New York Regents physics exam. It covers an entire year's worth of physics curriculum and requires about three hours for completion. Review the questions to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Aerospace Engineering

Twelfth graders examine the physics of rocket flight. They build and launch model rockets to measure their performances.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Terminal Velocity

Students calculate acceleration due to gravity with the measurements of the period of a pendulum or measurements of the time for an object to fall from different heights. They observe and measure the effect of air resistance on the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Equal and Opposite Thrust in Aircraft: You're a Pushover!

It's the law—every action requires a reaction, no matter how small. Pupils experience two demonstrations of Newton's third law of motion as it relates to thrust in the 10th segment of a 22-part unit on flight. Using their mathematical...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Marshmallow Puff Tube

Let physical science stars experience Newton's first law of motion by blowing marshmallows out of cardboard tubes! Using different lengths of tubing, they find that more force is needed to overcome increasing friction, and they have a...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Falling Feather

Whether or not Galileo actually dropped balls from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, this demonstration will solidly demonstrate that objects are accelerated at the same rate, regardless of mass. You will, however, need a vacuum pump and a few...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Study Jams! Newton's Second Law: Acceleration

Become a pinball wizard by understanding acceleration. Mia and Sam define acceleration for the audience and touch on the property of inertia. Get your physical science class up to speed by showing this little video, reviewing the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pendulum Catch

What a fun demonstration! Show the video, or better yet, have your physics learners construct this hex nut pendulum and test it themselves. Then have them discuss in groups why the single hex nut wraps around the finger. See if they can...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Video 4 - Acceleration, part 1

An animated video teaches viewers about force and acceleration, using a cartoon character to demonstrate examples of force, speed, time, and acceleration in action. While the video is on the older side, viewers will still enjoy the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pendulum Catch

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Quiz 3: Acceleration

Assign this online resource to your physics fans as homework that will help prepare them for an assessment on acceleration. Make sure the questions are all answerable by the material you covered in class, but then rest in the time you...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Action-Reaction! Rocket

Students construct a rocket from a balloon propelled along a guide string. They use this model to learn about Newton's three laws of motion, examining the effect of different forces on the motion of the rocket. They measure the distance...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Blow-and-Go Parachute

Students design a skydiver and parachute constraption to demonstrate how drag caused by air resistance slows the descent of skydivers as they travel back to Earth. They experience how gravity pulls the skydiver toward the earth and how...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Acceleration Science

In collaborative groups, physics learners design and create a web portfolio of internet resoucres explaining poitive and negative acceleration, zero acceleration, and positive and negative velocity. This is a terrific assignment for...
