Product Description
This resource is included in the Gravity and Orbital Motion 5E Lesson with PhET Lab !

This virtual PhET Gravity and Orbits simulation lab provides students opportunity to experiment with the variables that affect the force of gravity between two objects and the concept of orbital motion. This inquiry activity can be used in a physical science class while students are exploring motion and gravity. This could also be incorporated during an astronomy unit or even as an inquiry into the concept of gravity alone. Students should understand the concepts of mass and velocity prior to this lesson. They will be constructing their own understanding of orbital motion using the PhET lab platform. The lab provides both a guided portion for which students will be asked to adjust certain variables and observe what happen and an experimental portion for which students will try to create extreme orbital motion by manipulating the variables themselves.

Answer key is included.

The virtual lab is located at this link.
