A very scientific-looking but appealing set of slides helps you teach young physicists about the force of friction. First explain what static friction is and demonstrate how to solve problems. Then introduce kinetic friction and the...
In this work worksheet, students determine the amount of work done on moving objects given the speed of the objects. They also determine the work done on objects given the measurement of force and the angle above the horizontal at which...
In this kinetic energy worksheet, students solve six problems including finding work, determining kinetic energy, finding the coefficient of kinetic friction and finding work done on objects by air resistance and friction.
Middle schoolers investigate the effect of weight on normal friction or the friction due to surface roughness. They tell about the effects of contact area that occurs as a result of molecular attraction by looking at data on line graphs.
Middle schoolers work in groups to conduct experiments the demonstrate the differences between static and kinetic friction. They consider how friction affects us in our everyday lives, determine the effects of weight on friction and...
Young scholars explore friction. In this physics lesson plan, students will cover metal blocks with film to determine the changes caused by static and kinetic friction.
In this power worksheet, 12th graders solve four problems including calculating work done by friction, determining work done by gravity and the calculating the minimum horsepower needed to save a ship that is sinking.
Students design and conduct experiment to determine if weight added incrementally to an object affects amount of friction encountered when it slides across a flat surface. They graph data from their experiments, and calculate...
Middle schoolers watch a demonstration that introduces them to the idea that friction is a force that impedes motion when two surfaces are in contact. They work in groups to experiment with frictional force using a coffee cup on which...
