- This bundle begins with Paul Hewitt's homage to atoms, followed by The Mechanical Universe episode, "The Atom." Different perspectives, indeed. "The Photoelectric Effect" Lab Springboard utilizes a few videoclips and PhET's The Photoelectric Effect sim to introduce this surprising topic."Fantasia onPrice $19.99Original Price $25.92Save $5.93
This is part of the classroom curriculum I developed for use with my high school physics students. This particular topic is covered exclusively in my AP Physics 2 (and previously AP Physics B) course.
Students will be working with something (computer simulation in this case) while completing this assignment.
The instructor guides students through this activity via classroom discussion. The activity is a springboard for that discussion. This is not intended as a homework or independent activity.
THE PHOTOELECTRIC EFFECT
We begin by watching the linked videoclips. We build on those observations using PhET’s Photoelectric Effect simulation. The goal is to understand how photon energy and quantity relate in the photoelectric effect.
