Bungee Jumping with Probes

Eleventh graders analyze the motion of a bungee jumper from just prior to the jump through a few oscillations after the jump utilizing an Accelerometer. They determine where in motion the acceleration is at a maximum as well as at a minimum. Comparisons and contrasts are graphed when the laboratory jump is compared with an actual bungee jump.
