This lab requires students to analyze what they already know about force, work, and motion and apply them to this lab investigation. As always, this activity guides through the Scientific Method. The students participate in every step of the scientific method.
The following are addressed in this activity:
-The concepts of force, work, and motion
-Units of force, work, and motion
-Using these concepts to predict the outcome
-Scientific Method: gathering background information, following procedures, gathering data, independent variable, dependent variable, and control
