Product Description

Web videos that involve physics are fun to watch. They can be even more engaging with the addition of a few well-crafted questions.

This activity engages students with a practical problem. A motorist is trying to revive his broken-down car. A second motorist offers assistance. When a jump-start is arranged, things take an unexpected turn in the parking lot at Beachs.

PhET's Projectile Motion (legacy Flash-based sim) can be used to model this event and add the effects of air resistance. [At this time, the HTML5 Projectile Motion sim is too limited to use for this activity.]

An understanding of algebraic kinematics is required here. Certainly appropriate for AP Physics 1.

Add this to your mix of classroom demonstrations and lab activities to thoroughly teach the topic at hand. I developed this resource for use with my own AP Physics 1 students.

This product can be purchased as part of a bundle for a substantial savings:
