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 fairly deeply with a thrill-seeking stunt I performed when I visited Victoria Falls on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe in 2014. Bungee jumping is an activity rich with physics. And this jump, filmed at the Victoria Falls Bridge, does not disappoint. Six pages of analysis interrogate the mechanics of the jump quite thoroughly. Multiple representations are implemented.

An understanding of harmonic motion and Hooke's Law is required here. 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.

Summer 2020 UPDATE: In addition to the printable PDFs of the student blank and answer key, a Google Docs version of the student document now included for easier distance learning use.
