Angular Velocity Vectors Right Hand RuleLesson Planet
2 mins 9th - 11th
Niki and Megan share the right hand rule for angular velocity vectors. This visual demonstration employed a bicycle wheel and Niki's right hand. This clip could be a helpful way to demonstrate the right hand rule in class. You could have...
Spinning an Old RecordLesson Planet
11th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Take a trip back in time to examine angular velocity. Using the revolutions per minute, learners calculate the speed of a point on a 33 record. They compare the speed of a point on the edge of the record to the speed of a point closer to...
Angular Velocity: How Long Is a Day on The Sun?Lesson Planet
10th - 12th
Learners establish the angular velocity of the Sun and determine how long it takes the Sun to make one complete revolution. They determine what angular velocity is and how it can be useful in determining the speed and direction of any...
Rotational Motion: Crash Course Physics #11Lesson Planet
9 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Don't let rotational motion make your head spin—use a video lesson to highlight the important ideas related to this concept! The 11th lesson in a physics series breaks down the motion in a rotating object. The narrator includes a...
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.
Impossible Zero G SkyscraperLesson Planet
7 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
What happens if you build a skyscraper so tall it breaks the laws of physics? This hypothetical scenario leads to an interesting discussion of Newtonian forces and the imaginary forces that explain them. As part of a larger series on...
Projectile and Circular Motion, TorqueLesson Planet
11th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Introduce your young scholars to the concepts of circular motion, projectile motion, angular speed, simple harmonic motion, torque, center of mass, centripetal force, and Hooke's Law with a 86-slide presentation. The circular motion...
Angular Speed SimulationLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Can you time the speed of your car perfectly so you only hit green lights? The challenge in the simulation is to alter the timing of the lights or the speed of the car in order to do just that. Scholars learn about angular speed as they...
Torque: Crash Course Physics #12Lesson Planet
8 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
It's all about how you pull—not how hard! The 12th installment in a physics series explains the importance of the direction and angle of force when calculating torque. The narrator includes a discussion of the moment of inertia as well...
The Amazing Pi RaceLesson Planet
7th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Add a sense of excitement to your math class with this race across the country. Using their knowledge of all things circular, young mathematicians work in pairs answering a series of pi-related word problems as they hop from one city to...
