  • StandardsNEW

In sports, when you try to hit or kick a ball as hard as you can, what you're attempting to do, in scientific terms, is work on the ball. You are trying to transfer as much kinetic energy from your body into the ball. Sports balls are hugely varied from perfectly smooth, dimpled, and squishy. The question is what sport ball transfers energy the best? This lab will show students how to use energy to find the most efficient sports ball when transferring energy. This lab is a great way to introduce your students to calculating energy with a real world application.

NGSSHS-PS3-1
Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known. Emphasis is on explaining the meaning of mathematical expressions used in the model. Assessment is limited to basic algebraic expressions or computations; to systems of two or three components; and to thermal energy, kinetic energy, and/or the energies in gravitational, magnetic, or electric fields.
