Lifting a Load

Students experiments with levers to determine if the amount of force needed to lift a load is always the same. For this physics lesson, students use Lab-Pro data collector as they experiment with the fulcrum placement to measure the work effort.  Students calculate the mechanical advantage the lever adds and create a graph from the data. Students complete a comprehension questions reflecting on what they have observed.
