Science Lab: Measurement. This excellent and motivating lab activity in pdf format was created for high school physics students. During this lab experiment, the students will measure the volume of several geometrical shapes in two different ways. First, they will use a ruler to find the dimensions of each shape, and then they will use the appropriate formula to calculate the volume. The second way is by the method of volume displacement. The final step is to estimate the percent of error. The la

Lab: Density. This motivating science laboratory activity in pdf format was designed for high school physics students. During this lab experiment, the students will find the volume of several metallic cubes by using a ruler to measure their dimensions, or by the method of volume displacement in a graduated cylinder. After that, the weight of each cube is found with a balance scale. The final step is to compare the density of each metal found experimentally, with the accepted value. A table with

This activity is an interesting lab in electricity for physics and physical science students, which may be done in the classroom and also at home. The purpose of this lab activity is for students to learn the resistor color code. Besides learning to figure out the resistance of any resistor by reading the different color bands, this activity helps students realize that resistors in a circuit are similar to a network of pipes where water flow. They determine how much current flow in each resistor
