Universal Gravitation

Are you feeling weighed down by your current gravitation presentation? Assign a hands-on interactive instead! Physics scholars work through a series of progressively harder questions about mass, distance, and gravity using an online tool. The resource, part of a Circular and Satellite Motion series, contains easy access to a tutorial as well as plenty of positive reinforcement for good work.

Instructional Ideas

  • Study gravitation with a related interactive, then assign the resource as a post-lab assessment
  • Have individuals create an explanation of the relationship between mass, distance, and gravitational force as they work
Classroom Considerations

  • Make sure the class is familiar with the calculations for gravitation

  • The interactive contains a calculator for students to use as they work through the problems
  • Real-time scoring helps monitor pupil progress

  • None
