Challenge One


1.   Calculate avg velocity for change in height data.


2.   Plot three lines showing change in velocity for each height.


3.   Calculate the slope of each line


Challenge Two


1.   Plot three lines for each change in mass.


2.   Calculate the slop of each line



Plot data on a line and how to do found in text on page 394



Collect Data

Number Two

Demo with Computer Simulation phet (Skate Park)




Notice what happens to change in

a)   speed

b)   potential and kinetic energy

when you change the

a)   height of the skater

b)   mass of the skater



Number Three


Using the skate boarder demo and your data from both cart demonstrations, answer these questions on a separate piece of paper.


1)   With the cart, what is the affect of change in acceleration with a change in height?


2)   With a skater, what is the affect of change in acceleration with height?



3)   What is the affect of mass on the acceleration of the cart?


4)   What is the affect of the change with mass on the skater?



5)   Is there a difference in between affect of height between the cart and the skater?


6)   Is there a difference in between the affect of mass of the cart and the skater?



7)   Propose a hypothesis for the cart regarding affect of height and mass for the cart.


8)   Propose a hypothesis for the skater regarding affect of height and mass for the skater?



9)   If there are differences in the affect of gravity upon the cart and the skater?


10)                 Can you explain your answer for question number nine, in regards to rules or laws of physics?

Take Home Message ·      Motion is affected by a variety of variables.

·      Resistance to motion is Inertia

·      Force = mass times acceleration

·      For every force there is another equal and opposite force.

·      Yoda says “Do or Do not, there is no try” so do your homework!

·      The force is strong in most Jedi Warriors
