- Join to access all included materials
Three activities are lined up to give physicists experience with reaction and hang times. They catch a falling meter stick by sight and by sound. They also jump and use the distance to calculate hang time. In a final practice problem, learners calculate the hang time of a Chicago Bears' defensive lineman given his weight and vertical jump height. These simple activities can really impress the concepts of reaction and hang time into the minds of your physics fans.
