Product Description
The life and works of the 18-19th Century physicist, HENRY CAVENDISH (1731-1810), are featured in these easy-to-execute hands-on activities. Students will construct a model of a "torsion balance" similar in principle to the one used by Cavendish to measure the gravitational and electrostatic forces between objects. They will also learn how he measured the mass of the Earth. The introductory biography of this great scientist, along with the laboratory worksheets and educator guide included in this download, are a great supplemental recommended for grades 5 through 9.
