PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Newton Scale Lab:

Description: Students will use a Newton Scale to measure the force of friction across 3 different types of surfaces

Goal: To measure the force of friction on 3 different types of surfaces
Includes exit slip, prediction and group discussion questions


Materials:

Newton scales- enough for each person or partner groups
Hooked weights:

9+ Piece economy hooked weight set
For general science and physics laboratory work
Carpet surface (remnants for example)
Smooth tabletop
Wood surface (plywood pieces)


Setup:
Can be done individually or in partner groups

Students will attach a hooked weight on their newton scale
Keeping the scale and weight as parallel with the surface as possible they will drag the scale over a set distance (for example: 2 feet)
Students will record the measurement on the newton scale to the most accurate amount possible
Students will repeat this process for all 3 surface types in 3 trials each and record data in notebook
Once finished students will average the 3 trials
