Vi and Sal Talk About the Mysteries of Benford's Law
Challenge your students to come up with their own explanation of why this interesting mathematical law works! Sal, accompanied by Vi Hart, demonstrates BenfordÕs Law. They challenge the listeners to see if they can give an intuitive reason for why this law fairly accurately models certain number patterns. There is a follow-up video with an explanation.
Review of Gravitation
In this gravitation worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on universal gravitation topics and Kepler's laws.
Students investigate the interdependence of mass and gravitational acceleration using computer simulation. In this physics lesson, students derive the formula for acceleration due to gravity. They calculate air resistance on falling objects.
Rockets Away with Newton's Laws of Motion
Eighth graders comprehend Newton's Laws of Motion and to use the scientific method in rocketry sub-unit. They work through the scientific method. Students illustrate how science and Newton's Laws can be used in everyday situations and movement.
Physics 240: Hooke's Law
In this Hooke's law worksheet, students apply the Hooke's law equation to determine the force exerted on springs. This worksheet has 5 problems to solve.
Newton's Second Law
In this Newton's second law worksheet, high schoolers read about force, mass and acceleration and how they relate. They solve eighteen problems using Newton's second law.
Distinguishing 2nd and 3rd Law Forces
In this laws of forces worksheet, students are given 27 problems to solve given diagrams showing forces acting upon objects. Students find the forces acting upon the objects, the determine the opposing forces acting upon the objects and they find the reaction forces.
The Laws of Thermodynamics
Young scholars investigate the laws of thermodynamics. In this chemistry lesson, students explore the background of thermodynamics and identify the first and second laws and relate it to engines and refrigerators.
Experiencing Newton's Laws of Motion
Fifth graders study Newton's three laws of motion in a whole group setting using their textbook as a resource. They work in small groups to create a multimedia presentation of one of the laws to present to the class. They design an activity that demonstrates one law, and photographic using a digital camera.
Vocabulary for Newton's Laws
In this Newton's laws worksheet, high schoolers match 24 terms with their definitions about topics related to Newton's three laws of motion. Topics include free body diagrams, vector diagrams, static equilibrium and all terms related to the laws of motion.
In this gravitational interaction worksheet, learners use the equation for the law of universal gravitation to solve the provided problems. Students write the equation and make the appropriate substitutions.
Learners give examples of each of Newton's three laws as they occur in everyday experiences. They visually represent and differentiate the difference between a direct proportion and an inverse proportion. Students explain how the gravitational law affects the tides of the earth as they calculate the actual gravitational force between the sun and earth and the moon and earth to conclude which has the stronger influence.
Newton's Laws Quiz
In this Newton's laws worksheet, students review the force of attraction, gravity, and motions. This worksheet has 4 different versions with 10 multiple choice questions each.
Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation with Simple Machines
First graders engage in a lesson that is about Newton's Laws Of Gravitation while conducting research in order to perform an information search. They sing a song about the Law of Gravitation and play a game of Ring Around The Rosie. Then students have a class discussion.
Physics 240: Newton's Third Law
In this forces worksheet, learners apply Newton's third law to solve 5 problems by determining the change in velocity and work.
Newton's Laws of Motion
Ninth graders utilize Newton's Laws of Motion to explain how things move, create poster illustrating each law of motion, and present and explain their poster to classmates.
Newton's Laws of Motion
Ninth graders write a journal entry showing what they know about Newton's Laws of Motion before watching a video and demonstrations of each law. They create a poster that illustrates the laws of motion which is graded using the attached rubric.
Kepler's 3rd Law
Students derive the velocity in a circular orbit of any radius. They derive the Earth escape velocity and prove Kepler's 3rd law for circular orbits # A simple formula for the orbital period in a circular Earth orbit of given radius.
Free Up the Ketchup!
Learners, in teams, use given materials and their knowledge of Newton's First Law to create a device that will remove a sticky ping pong ball from a 16-oz. cup (which represents ketchup stuck in a bottle.)
Kepler And His Laws
High schoolers engage in an overview of the story of Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler, and of Kepler's laws. Each of Kepler's laws be studied separately in more detail in later lessons. They examine Kepler's 3rd law.
