Acceleration Lab

Young Einsteins experiment with the acceleration of Hot Wheels™ toy cars down inclined planes at various angles. This classic physics lab activity is thoroughly explained in both a teacher’s guide and a student lab sheet. Science learners collect data from four trials at each of three inclined plane heights. They calculate and graph acceleration rates and determine percent error.
