Unit VII: Energy: Worksheet 2 Hooke's Law
Physic starters spring into energy with a problem-solving worksheet. They work with graphs, apply Hooke's law, draw force diagrams, and solve for distance, force, or mass in spring systems. There are seven problems in all.
Hooke's Law, Vibrations, Mechanical Waves, and Sound
Dangle a spring to experiment with vibration and discover if period is dependent on amplitude. Strum a guitar and adjust the strings to compare displacement and sound. Use a Slinky® and guitar strings on a ring stand to uncover the mystery of resonance. For all three activities, Hooke's law and other equations are applied. These high-level activities will sing of information for your physics learners when studying wave motion, vibrations, and sound.
Students explore the relationship between the force applied to a spring and its stretch. They design and conduct an experiment to determine the stretch of spring with 15N of force without having an actual 15N mass.
Physics Lab: Hooke's Law
Students apply Hooke's law in spring experiments. Students determine the relationship between stress and strain for a spring, calculate the spring constant for a spring, and predict the range of a launched spring.
Investigation of Hooke's Law Lab
Students determine the spring constant by conducting an investigation. In this physics lesson, students collect data and create a graph of force vs. displacement. They compare the results of two different methods to find spring constant.
Using coil-spring driven cars, first year physicists experiment with Hooke's Law of elasticity. They also calculate potential and kinetic energy transfer times and distances. Not much instruction is provided to the teacher in this write-up; the procedure is vague. There are, however, a few useful tips and extension ideas that might make it worthwhile to glance over.
Physics 240: Hooke's Law
In this Hooke's law instructional activity, students apply the Hooke's law equation to determine the force exerted on springs. This instructional activity has 5 problems to solve.
Creating Linear Models for Data 3
Scholars solve 24 various types of problems that include defining Hooke's Law, conducting an experiment, and exploring rate of change. They create a scatter plot to show the data for the number and the distance from the table to the top. Then, they apply the average distance computed to determine the rate of change for the linear model given.
Forces Acting on a Spring
Teaching elastic forces in your physics class is a snap with this resource! Scholars compare the stretch of rubber bands with differing width, then measure the stretch of a spring and calculate force. In a whole-class experiment, wire is attached to the ceiling and stretched by adding weights to the loose end. When the weights are removed, does the wire return to its original length? Materials lists, procedures, background information and assessments are all provided for your convenience.
Spring Scale Engineering
Learners explore how spring scales work and how they are used for weight measurement. In this engineering lesson students work in teams to design, build, and test their own spring scale device.
In this physics 240:10 worksheet, students calculate the speed and distance as presented in the given word problems. Students apply their understanding of Hooke's law to answer the questions provided.
Student explore the relationship between Hooke's Law and catapults. After exploring the four types of catapults, learners use Hooke's law to determine the spring constant in a torsion powered catapult. They answer questions based upon their research.
Physics 240: 20
In this physics activity, students calculate the frequency of oscillation, the phase, amplitude, energy, position, velocity, and acceleration for each problem given.
Physics 210: Simple Harmonic Oscillation
For this oscillation worksheet, students use a force equation to determine the linear restoring force acting on a mass. This worksheet has 5 problems to solve.
Basic Practice With Springs
In this springs instructional activity, students answer 14 questions about springs, spring constants, the acceleration of masses connected to springs, the elasticity constant of springs, the energy stored in springs and the speed at which masses move attached to springs.
Exercise Set 3.3: Variation
In this variation worksheet, students solve 26 variation problems. Students determine the missing variable by using joint, direct, or inverse variation.
Profess the Compress
Students determine the ground clearance of CEENBoTs by adding weights. In this physics instructional activity, students explore the compression and extension of different springs. They cite real world applications of Hooke's Law.
Physics 210: 9
In this physics 210:9 worksheet, students apply knowledge of Newton's 3rd law and Hooke's law to answer the following questions. Students calculate work, velocity, force, and acceleration.
Tubular, Dude! Exploring Blood Vessels
Learners explore the cardiovascular system. In this human body lesson, students observe blood flow and study cardiovascular diseases and how they affect the human body system.
Physics 240: Harmonic Oscillation
In this harmonic oscillation worksheet, students calculate the frequency of oscillation, phase, amplitude, position, velocity, and acceleration in 5 word problems.
