PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this lab students build ramps with textbooks and meter sticks. They will change the height of the ramp and the mass of the balls rolling down and measure how it affects the amount of potential energy. Students will use the formula PE=mgh and find the relationship between potential energy, height, and mass.
Materials needed per group: 3 meter sticks (2 for ramp and one to measure with), 3 textbooks, cup, marble, golf ball, ping pong ball.
