Bouncing Superball Physics

This Bouncing Superball Physics lesson plan also includes:

Ninth graders experiment with bouncing balls to investigate the elasticity coefficient of different sizes and types of balls. In this superball physics lesson, 9th graders bounce various types of balls from differing heights. They examine formulas that predict the bounce back height and the mechanical energy remaining after the ball is dropped. Students then use these formulas to answer performance assessment questions.
