Newton's Three Laws Of Motion

Decent Essays
The scientist, Sir Isaac Newton, helped to organize the thinking about forces by formulating three laws. In his book Newton describes his three laws of motion. Newton’s Laws are all around us. To prove this, you will conduct 14 different activities showing everyday examples of these laws.

Lab Procedure
You will start at a lab station and then move from station to station until you have completed all 14 activities.
You will have 3minutes to do the activity at each lab station.
Perform the activity as directed.
Write a description of what you observe in your notebook.
Determine which of Newton’s Laws of Motion is being demonstrated.
Record this in your table.
Move to each of the other lab stations and repeat steps 3 – 7.

Remove the note card without disturbing either bottle.

Station 5 (Newton’s First Law of Motion)
1. Balance the meter stick on one hand and the ruler on the other hand.
2. Which is easier to balance?

Station 6 (Newton’s First Law of Motion)
1. Place the note card on top of the beaker.
2. Place the washer on the card, above the beaker.
3. Predict what happens when the card is rapidly removed.
4. Pull the card out as rapidly as you can.
5. Observe the motion of the washer.

Station 7 (Newton’s Second Law of Motion)
1. Place a penny near one end of your lab table.
2. Use your finger to propel the penny toward the other end of the lab table trying to get it to stop exactly at the edge of the lab table.

Station 8 (Newton’s Second Law of Motion)
1. There are two carts with different masses on the table.
2. Give the cart with the lower mass a gentle push and record how far it goes.
3. Give the other cart a push, just as hard, and record how far it goes.

Station 9 (Newton’s Second Law of Motion)
1. Set up the cart so that it is at the starting tape.
2. One partner gently pushes the cart and the other times it.
3. Stop the stopwatch when the car reaches the finish line.
4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 giving the cart a harder

    Then attach the cart to the force sensor with a string around 10cm. Tape the masses onto the cart to prevent its slipping. Measure the weight of the whole cart system to calculate the normal force. Then use the force sensor to pull the car slowly and carefully in a constant velocity. Let the sensor record the data while pulling the cart and creates a Force vs Time graph in the Capstone.…

    Ensuring the length of beet root disc stays the same means that the amount of red pigment betalain is around the same amount. Therefore ensuring that any changes to the level of absorbance is purely due to the changes of temperature of distilled water 3. Volume of distilled water solution To ensure the only variable changed is temperature, the volume of distilled water solution must be fixed Using a 10cm3 measuring cylinder The level of impact is 5. If the volume of distilled water isn’t the same, quantitative data recorded will be inaccurate as the color for every cuvette will vary. For example, a solution which contained only 5cm3 of water would look darker than a solution which contained 10cm3 of water, even though they are at the same…

    After the initial temperature was recorded the MgO was quickly added and the cup was swirled while the temperature changes were recorded. After the data collection as over the reaction stopped the reaming MgO residue on the watch glass was recorded and all waste products were disposed of and all material were cleaned. The data form reaction four was saved on the lab quest so that reaction five could be carried out. The Styrofoam cups were restacked and placed in a 400 mL beaker to which 120 mL of 2M HCl was then added the calorimeter was then closed and the initial temperature was recorded by using the lab quest. 0.5 g of Mg was then gathered and weighed using the scale and watch glass, all weights were recorded in table 3.…
