Applicable to Physical Science, Physics, Honors Physics, and AP Physics classes.
This quantitative, inquiry-based laboratory exercise for high school physics or physical science classes is designed to measure the spring constant of a Dropper Popper by measuring values of both spring and gravitational potential energy. The exercise assumes that energy is conserved.
are sold by Educational Innovations and are a nice illustration of the conversion of spring potential energy into gravitational potential energy. This product is an excellent means of illustrating conservation of energy.
Instructor's Notes and a Student Worksheet are included.
This exercise covers portions of the following California State Science Standards
Physics - Motion and Forces
Physics - Conversion of Energy and Momentum
Investigation and Experimentation
