Deep Impact Comet Encounter

Physics apprentices analyze the impact of NASA's Impactor as it collided with the comet Tempel 1 in July of 2005. They calculate the mass and speed of the comet, along with the distance it might drift off of its orbit over time. This worksheet is a fascinating problem solving exercise that you can assign to your physics learners as an enrichment when studying velocity.

As a Lesson Planet member, not only am I privy to a wide array of creative and effective lesson plans and materials, but it has saved me so much time, just not having to start from scratch.
