Product Description

Purpose

o To develop knowledge of how to calculate velocity

o To perform kinetic energy calculations

o To practice making accurate measurements involving time

Students will set up a ramp and record how long it takes for various mass carts to roll down the ramp. Students will practice calculating kinetic energy. Part 2 of the lab asks students to create a graph using the data they have collected.

Materials needed:

rolling cart

200 g mass

500 g mass

meter stick

a ramp set up (I used books and a metal board)
