In this Potential and Kinetic Energy Ball Activity students will utilize three different balls in order to calculate potential and kinetic energy. Students will learn about these two types of energies, the variables that effect them, and how to calculate them. The student findings will be recorded in the lab and graphed within the lab as well. Analysis questions are also included.
Materials for the lab....
Meter stick (some way to measure)
3 various balls (tennis ball, golf ball, marble)
-------> a ping pong ball can also be used to replace one of the balls above
This product is geared for middle school science classes but can easily suit any grade levels
