Measures of Circular Motion
Physicists become Olympians in a competition using centripetal force. They ride a bicycle to comprehend relationships between linear and rotational motion. If you have an old-fashioned record player, it can be used to help pupils describe rotation and revolution.

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 background information and assessment material is provided to make learning meaningful.

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 and down inclined planes, spring motion, and gravitational pull are all presented.

Vertical Circular Motion
In this vertical circular motion worksheet, students answer 16 questions about given diagrams showing masses rotating in circular motion. Students find tension in strings, they find the magnitude of the critical velocity, they find normal forces acting on objects and they determine the motion of objects after a break in the string holding the object.
