Potential Energy, Kinetic Energy, and EnergyTransformationsObjective: Students will complete a launch/skills lab tocompareand contrast kinetic energy and potential energy.Engagement:Complete thePROBEbelow.Besure to explain your thinking usingaccountable talk that includes either experiences from class investigationsor personal experience.Write your answers below.
ExplorationWhat isenergy?Can you give examples of energy?1.Drop a tennis ball from:5 feet3 feet1 feet2.Measure how high the ball bounces (the first time)3.Count how many times the ball bounces until it stops bouncing.4.Repeat steps 2-3 for 3 feet and 1 feet.5.How does the height from which you drop the ball affect the reboundheight?Does the height from which you drop the ball affect how manytimes it bounces?HeightRebound height (firsttime (approximately)Number of bouncesuntil it stops bouncing5 feet3 feet1 feet1. What caused the ball to “bounce” in each instance?What was thebounce an example of?2. Why did the balls eventually stop bouncing?Where did the “bounce” go?3. What is the correlation between the drop height and the bounce height?Write your answers below.
