Have you been looking for an easy to follow lab to support Newton's second law? Look no further. This lab allows kids to explore the relationship of net force, mass and acceleration. They must identify the experimental variables and state a hypothesis. Your kids will collect data, use kinematic equations to solve for acceleration, use F=ma to solve for net Force as well as graph!
As a BONUS...for those more advanced classes, you can do PART 2 in which students will design and perform another experiment involving F=ma.
