Product Description
This quantitative, inquiry-based laboratory exercise for 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.

Dropper Poppers are sold by Educational Innovations and are a nice illustration of the conversion of spring potential energy into gravitational potential energy.

Applicable to Physical Science, Physics, Honors Physics, and AP Physics classes.

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
