#### Regents High School Examination - Physics 2010

Give every type of learner in your physics class an opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned throughout the year. From analyzing tables and graphs, to evaluating diagrams and solving problems, there is an outstanding variety of...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Time

Take your time with this lesson. Junior engineers read about different types of clocks and then work together to build a pendulum time-keeper. There are no hints as to how they might go about accomplishing this complex task, so you may...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Catch

What a fun demonstration! Show the video, or better yet, have your physics learners construct this hex nut pendulum and test it themselves. Then have them discuss in groups why the single hex nut wraps around the finger. See if they can...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulums

Pendulums are simple, yet engaging demonstrations of harmonic motion. Dr. Carlson uses a very large example of a pendulum: a bowling ball on a string hanging from the ceiling! Learn from Dr. Carlson how you can teach about the strength...

#### Time That Period

Physical science starters play with a pendulum in order to experience periodicity. Detailed procedures and a worksheet are included for day one. For day two, learners will use a graphing calculator to help them plot orbit data from a...

Lesson Planet

#### Stars and Slopes

More of a math lesson than physics or space science, high schoolers take a set of data and plot it on a log-log coordinate system. The write-up for day two was never completed, but day one, "Stars and Slopes," is complex and cohesive....

#### Physics 240 UnTest 3

It is called an "UnTest" because it is a practice test for an upcoming exam. In it, your first-year physicists practice solving problems pertaining to wave motion, pendulum period, and moment of inertia. There are eight problems in all...

Lesson Planet

#### Graphing Pendulum Results

Sixth graders set up a pendulum experiment deciding which variable to manipulate (length of string or weight on the string). They create a hypothesis, collect necessary equipment, and write out each step of their experiment. They then...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulums

First-time physicists experiment with pendulums in this physics lesson. They vary the weight of the bob, record how long each takes to complete ten period swings, and then calculate the time for one period. They repeat the procedure,...

Lesson Planet

#### Simple Harmonic Motion with Dr. DAQ

Students study the work and accomplishment of Galileo. In this physics lesson, students calculate the period of a pendulum's using a mathematical equation. They explain the different factors affecting its period.

Lesson Planet

#### Periodic Motion - The Pendulum

Students experiment to determine the period of a pendulum. In this periodic motion lesson, students use different pendulums to determine their periods. They use various amplitudes to determine its effects on the period.

Lesson Planet

#### Oscillations

Young scholars construct and compare the actions of various pendulums. In this pendulum motion lesson, students build and test different types of pendulums. They conduct experiments with the length of the swing arm and apply mathematical...

Lesson Planet

#### Coupled Resonant Pendulums

Students discover every pendulum has a natural vibration cycle that depends on its length. In this physical science lesson, students participate in an experiment that shows the natural vibration frequency of two pendulums is the same if...

Lesson Planet

#### How Can a Clock Part Measure Gravity?

Students measure motion. In this gravity and motion lesson, students make a simple pendulum and use the TI-73 calculator to calculate how acceleration varies with pendulum length. Students record data from their experiments on the...
