This lab allows students to test 2 variables related to kinetic and potential energy: How does changing the height of the ramp affect the energy of the ball, and how does changing the mass of the ball affect the overall kinetic energy?
Materials needed: textbooks, meter sticks, materials to construct a ramp (I just use cardboard but meter sticks also work), cups, and balls of different mass (I used a marble, ping pong ball, and golf ball).
2 versions are included.
Version 1: Students will determine relationships between kinetic and potential energy. Great for middle school.
Version 2: Students will calculate the amount of potential energy based on the height of the ramp and mass of the ball. Great for high school.
