Mass vs. Weight

Students make generalizations about weight and mass by engaging in two hands-on experiments. In this weight and mass lesson, students weigh both an empty beaker and beakers with various amounts of weight inside of them in order to find the densities of each beaker. They then experiment with the speed of a pendulum swing by adding different weights to the pendulum. Finally, they record their results on a graph and make generalizations of their findings.
