This g: A Pendulum lesson plan also includes:
Does mass affect the number of swings a pendulum makes in a given time period? High schoolers examine the variables that determine how quickly a pendulum moves in an inquiry-based investigation. The physics of motion and gravity are examined through a controlled experiment and subsequent lab write-up.
- Simple and easy-to-perform investigation
- Controlled experiment
- Incorporates math
- Exact string lengths should be given to ensure consistency and control
- Gravity calculations section (Part III) could be a bit confusing without explanation
