Forces, Net Forces & AccelerationLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Pass along the knowledge of the great Sir Isaac Newton with this activity on the laws of motion. Including three separate problems, each involving multiple parts and calculations, this resource is a great way to monitor students'...
Investigation: AccelerationLesson Planet
8th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Take a look at acceleration within the context of automotive technology. They vary the mass on a toy car and run it down a ramp, exploring Newton's second law of motion. Though this is a classic lab activity, you will appreciate the...
Study Jams! Newton's Second Law: AccelerationLesson Planet
3 mins 6th - 9th CCSS: Adaptable
Become a pinball wizard by understanding acceleration. Mia and Sam define acceleration for the audience and touch on the property of inertia. Get your physical science class up to speed by showing this little video, reviewing the...
Unit III: Worksheet 4 - Uniform AccelerationLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Eight problems require general physics recruits to calculate acceleration or distance traveled. They read the situations involving cars and buses, running bears, downhill skiers, and a rock slide and then get to work. Provide this as a...
Unit III: Worksheet 3 - Uniform AccelerationLesson Planet
9th - 12th
This three-page worksheet moves physics masters to show what they know about motion. They analyze graphs of time versus displacement, solve instantaneous and average velocities, solve word problems, and graph results. This is an...
How Does an Atom-Smashing Particle Accelerator Work?Lesson Planet
4 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Address the question that physics learners are burning to know the answer to: How does an atom-smashing particle accelerator work? The LHC or Large Hadron Collider is introduced as a tool for uncovering the mysterious rules that govern...
Unit III: Worksheet 1 - Uniform AccelerationLesson Planet
9th - 12th
This concise handout posts a diagram of a block sliding down a ramp. High schoolers draw qualitative graphical representations for displacement vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time. They draw a motion map and list the...
Accelerometer: Centripetal AccelerationLesson Planet
8th - 10th CCSS: Designed
Scholars build robotic arms that swing back and forth and use them to collect velocity and acceleration data. To analyze the results, pupils compare data to the equations for angular velocity and centripetal acceleration.
Can You Perceive Acceleration?Lesson Planet
4 mins 6th - 12th
Can our eyes detect changes in an object's motion? The video's narrator picks two unsuspecting volunteers to be at the center of an acceleration study. The resource compares the view of a distant landscape with an up-close observation of...
When Is A Bungee Jumper's Acceleration Max?Lesson Planet
1 min 6th - 12th
Where is acceleration at its maximum value during a bungee jump? Junior physicists ponder the possibilities with a short video. The narrator invites viewers to choose from five points along the jump as potential times of maximum...
Motion - Speed, Velocity, and AccelerationLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Identical in appearance except for the information content, these 18 slides introduce young physicists to the concepts related to motion. Learning assessment questions are interspersed among sections of information on frame of reference,...
Video 5 - Acceleration, part 2Lesson Planet
5 mins 7th - 12th
A continuation of a previous video (linked on the webpage), this pays close attention to time and acceleration, using an animated train to demonstrate the concepts. Pupils will like the animation, but might need more explanation on what...
