Golf ball Energy Lab Objective: Determine the energy transformations that occur when a ball is dropped and bounces. Prelab research/tests: 1.Why does a ball bounce?
2.List all types of energy we’ve talked about.
3.Are there any other types of Energy? (the answer is yes). List them here.
Part 1:Rebound that Golf Ball 1.Drop a golf ball five times from three different heights (the heights must be between 0.5m and 2.0m) 2.Record the rebound height after each drop. Data Part 1: (Record on Google sheets, then copy and paste table here.)
