Students experiment to show work and power while observing that entropy is a process that occurs when work occurs. They determine that entropy is equal to the disorder in a system and always increases when work is done.

9th - 12th

Students experience work and power and observe the process of entropy. In this physics lesson, students conduct an experiment that shows work (force & distance), power (work/time), and exemplifies the process of entropy.

9th - Higher Ed

Get your young physicists' brains working with this PowerPoint about work. Work is defined and the equation for solving problems introduced. Power is also explained along with its problem-solving equation. Sample questions are worked through using clear explanations and diagrams. This is a practical presentation for your physics class.

23
9th - Higher Ed

A total of 29 word problems furnish practice in solving for work, energy, and force. A few of the questions display diagrams to help learners visualize the systems, and all of them list five choices from which they select the correct answer. This makes a pertinent review that you can administer as a homework assignment.

4th - 9th

You will need to prepare either a class set or a single demonstration catapult in order to teach this powerful lesson on kinetic and potential energy. Activity sheets are provided to walk learners through the construction of a catapult. If you choose to teach via demonstration, you can jump straight to Activity Sheet 3, on which is a data table for recording distances. Different features of the catapult are varied for comparison. A vocabulary list and challenge questions are provided.

In the world of chemistry, efficiency is defined as: the work a system does, divided by the energy given to that system to complete the work. Sal illustrates this important chemistry concept by drawing a PV graph that shows a Carnot Cycle taking place and calculating the efficiency of the Carnot Engine.

10th - Higher Ed

In this physics 210 worksheet, students calculate the frequency of oscillation of several word problems provided. Students find the lowest 5 modes of oscillation in each system presented.

9th - 12th

Students explain the four stroke process in internal combustion engines. In this physics lesson, students role play this process and present their reenactment in class. They draw and label the diagram of an internal combustion engine.

10th - 12th

In this power worksheet, students answer four questions about balls being lifted. They determine their mass, height, work done, time and power involved in lifting the balls. They draw conclusions about power given the problems they completed.

5th - 8th

Attractive and logical instructions are provided for constructing a balloon-powered car. Young physical scientists measure the distance their car travels and record it on a pre-printed data sheet. The make alterations to improve the performance. By participating in this activity, learners explore Newton's Third Law of Motion. The plan is cohesive, including objectives, background, procedures, and extension ideas. It is an engaging activity to use in a physical science unit for middle schoolers.

9th - 12th

How much work is done when a force moves a block? How far will power lift a block? And how much work can be done by a motor? These are the kinds of questions you will find on this physics problem solving sheet. With 19 problems to solve, there is not enough space on this single sheet assignment. Computations can be performed on a separate sheet of paper to be turned in.

4th - 8th

Students participate in various experiments and record findings about actions and reactions, inertia and motion. In this physics instructional activity, students create and observe the motion of a pendulum. Students adjust a variable and test again.

After drawing and labelling a microscope, forensic science explorers use one to solve a simulated murder mystery. They examine each piece of evidence and draw what they observe at each magnification. Working in groups of four, your scientists produce a forensic report. The objective of this lesson plan is for learners to gain competence in handling a microscope.

7th - 10th

Sal goes back to a look at the Adiabatic process in this chemistry video. He sets up a Carnot Cycle that occurs within an adiabatic process; meaning there is no transfer of heat. From that problem, Sal constructs Volume Ratios which is a mathematical way of proving that no heat was transferred.

In this harmonic waves worksheet, students review the characteristics of harmonic waves and use this information to complete 5 problems.

49
Higher Ed

In this harmonic waves worksheet, students review the characteristics of harmonic traveling waves by solving 5 different problems.

10th - 12th

Student explore the relationship between Hooke's Law and catapults. After exploring the four types of catapults, students use Hooke's law to determine the spring constant in a torsion powered catapult. They answer questions based upon their research.

This worksheet would make a nifty quiz on the laws of thermodynamics. Nine multiple choice questions assess high schoolers' understanding of energy transfer, specific heat capacity, phase change, fusion, and vaporization. It is short but saavy.

Now, this lesson would be a blast! When your engineering or physics class is examining the reduction of friction or fluid dynamics, you can have them make these hovercraft racers. Using a balloon, a bottle cap, and a compact disc, middle schoolers make simplistic vehicles that appear to defy gravity! Resource links and a video of a real hovercraft in action are provided to support the background information needed.
