Product Description
Newton's Second Law of Motion tells us that force is equal to the mass x the rate of acceleration of an object. If we change the mass of an object, then the force must increase in order for the object to move at the same velocity. This short activity allows students to experiment how changing the mass of an object affects how far it will move if the force does not change with it. Students will use meter sticks, pennies, string, rubber bands, and paper cups to complete the activity.

Activity includes directions, student handouts, and a question page to deepen students' understanding of their exploration and how it pertains to their everyday life.
