Gyroscopes in Motion

For Teachers 10th - 12th
Physics stars will enjoy learning about the conservation of energy as you demonstrate gyroscope precession. The lecture is broken into five subtopics: cross product, rotating vectors, angular momentum, rotating rigid bodies, and torque...
Lesson Planet

Centripetal Force

For Teachers 4th - 6th
In order to investigate cetntripetal force and angular momentum, youngsters compare the motion of erasers hung from a string. It is not clear what type of Amish toy is needed in the warm up activity, so you may not be able to use it. The...

Amusement Park Physics

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Young scholars conduct a series of experiments on conservation of energy and momentum. In this physics lesson plan, students investigate the factors affecting the period of the pendulum. They build a roller coaster and calculate the...
Lesson Planet

Torque

For Students 9th - Higher Ed Standards
Scholars experiment with torque and rotation. They interpret the relationships between torque, angular momentum, angular acceleration, and the moment of inertia.
Lesson Planet

Orbital Motion

For Students 6th - 12th Standards
Why do planets orbit the sun in ellipses when moons orbit their planet in circles? Pupils control the semi-major axis, eccentricity of the orbit, and position angle. The resulting orbital appears with the related force vectors as...
Lesson Planet

The Spin Doctor Is In

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are given the difintion of translational motion, which is the object in motion stays in motion. If you are in a car and the car stops, you keep moving. They then discuss rotational motion, which is a spinning object continues to...
Lesson Planet

THE PHYSICS OF MOVING THINGS (AND NOT A MOMENTUM TOO SOON!)

For Teachers 7th - 9th
Students list three examples of momentum found in their local environment; describe the importance of mass and velocity on momentum; and determine what is necessary to produce the greatest amount of momentum within a particular system.
Lesson Planet

Momentum

For Students 9th - Higher Ed
In this momentum worksheet, students review impulses, angular momentum, and the law of conservation of momentum. This worksheet has 30 fill in the blank statements.
