Product Description
I have had students delightfully recount this experience 30 years after the class was over! The activity is a blast! Students push a car empty (only a driver) and full (of passengers) and compare the forces, acceleration, momentum and energy. It takes up 2-4 hours of class time. Included in the packet is a power point presentation that outlines and reviews the physics concepts including the force diagrams, momentum, energy and procedures performed. A student worksheet is provided and a spreadsheet in open office and excel is provided with data collected in my classes (you can use this spreadsheet to check your student calculations!)
