TE Activity: Does Weight Matter?

Students design and conduct experiment to determine if weight added incrementally to an object affects amount of friction encountered when it slides across a flat surface. They graph data from their experiments, and calculate coefficients of friction between the object and the surface it moved upon, for both static and kinetic friction.
