  • Newton's Second Law Lab Report

    Objective: The purpose of this lab was to examine Newton 's second law by observing the relationship between force and acceleration in a friction-free environment and to illustrate the concept of mass. The experiment was conducted in such a way to reduce friction. In order to simulate this environment an air-cushioned track was set-up for the glider to ride on a pocket of air without being in contact with the metal track. In addition, this glider will have masses attached to it as well as a…

  • Trebuchet Experiment

    Dead bodies were also launched over these walls in aim of scaring one 's enemy who was on the other side (Farrell, 2006). The trebuchet uses Isaac Newton’s laws which are; The greater the mass of the object being accelerated the greater the amount of force needed to accelerate the object and (Pearson science ,2012). The motion of the projectile launched is parabolic and is influenced by factors such as the mass of the counter weight, the length of the pivot arm…

  • The Importance Of Communication In Deaf Theatre

    For this plan I was given the challenge of finding a way to help the actors remember the order of the play and their entrance and exits. I wanted to push the actors to use the space and not have to use language to communicate. The challenge here was to create a plan that would be sustaining and challenging but not restricting to the Deaf actors by taking their language away from them. The intention of the workshop was to slowly over stimulate the actors so that they would start to multitask. By…

  • Bouncy Test Lab Report

    Bouncy balls bounce because the material of the ball is extremely elastic and can convert kinetic energy from falling into potential energy and back into kinetic energy again with little loss of momentum. They are used in many classrooms because they can easily demonstrate conservation of momentum through a highly elastic collision. Like many things made out of rubber, bouncy balls have very high elasticity, meaning they rapidly return to their resting state after being stretched or squashed. If…

  • Rocket Trajectory

    Trajectory and applied force both have very much too do with our rocket lab. Trajectory affects how far the rocket will get beacuse trajectory is a curved path of an object that has been fired or thrown through the air. This affects the rocket beacuse the angle of the rocket that is launched at is part of trajectory and the rocket was launched off of an angled platform so this affetced how high the rocket went before coming down. Another part of trajectory is how gravity affects the objects…

  • Mousetrap Car Research Paper

    When constructing the car, the goal was to make the car as sturdy as possible in order for the car to travel a great distance in a short amount of time. To do this, we researched various ways to create a mousetrap car. Additionally, we incorporated our own ideas to enhance the construction after trial and error. First, our team gathered all of the necessary materials that we would need to construct the car. These materials included one mousetrap, cardboard pieces, six balloons, four eye hooks,…

  • Unit Three: Energy: Kinetic And Potential Energy

    Unit Three: Energy Our universe is made up of matter and energy. Matter is made up of anything that has mass and takes up space where energy allows the ability to do work or have the ability to move or elicit change in matter. In other words, energy is a property of objects which can be transferred to other independent objects or be converted into different forms. It is described as “a system to perform work.” We have two different types of energy; kinetic and potential energy. Kinetic energy is…

  • Bottle Rocket Engine Lab Report

    In physics, net force is the overall force acting on an object. This equation is written as follows: Fnet = Fthrust-Fg. The Fthrustis the force which makes an object move. In the case of the bottle rocket, the fuel being ejected from the rocket’s nozzle is thrusting the rocket into flight. In order to calculate Fnet, Fthrust & Fgmust…

  • Newton's Second Law Of Motion

    important. F=m(dv/dt)(Quote) F=ma Force = Mass x Acceleration (Newtons) With the use of this equation he proved that objects that are heavier fall at the same rate towards earth as objects that are lighter because the earth pulls them down with the same force. To put it in perspective a car and a feather would fall at the same universal rate of 9.8m/s^2 even though one is much heavier. Newton also figured out that the moon is held to the earth by the same force that pulls an apple off a tree…

  • Bennet Clark Analysis

    unbalanced force” In this video the athlete is at rest when he is first on the starting block. He is being acted upon by normal force between him and the block. When he bends down to pull with all his strength on the block he is creating a tension force between him and the block. He then gets power and pushes off the block with both feet. He is accelerating into the air and being acted upon by an unbalanced force. He is changing his motion and is no longer in constant motion.…
