This lab on changing energy forms, potential and kinetic energy, follows the Scientific Method. In this lab, you will experiment with these two kinds of energy and observe how one kind can be changed into the other. You will be testing the bounce height of a ball dropped from different heights to answer the question, "Does a ball dropped from a higher position have more potential/kinetic energy that one dropped from a lower position?"
Included in this packet are a poster on potential and kinetic energy, all steps to follow in the scientific method to perform the experiment, a data reporting sheet, a Lab Scoring Slip page, and a sheet of graph paper that can be duplicated (if needed).
I hope you enjoy the lab!
