In this lab, we want to measure the horizontal velocity of an object by measuring the
distance between the area that the object is launched from, and the area where this object
lands. We will then predict the la
Gravity Car Ramp Lab
Problem: The idea of this lab is to measure the acceleration of an object due to the force
of gravity. This acceleration does not depend on the mass of the object if the effect of
friction is small.
Snells Law (Refraction)
In this lab students will trace the path of a light ray through a block
of glass. They will determine the angle of incidence and the angle of
refraction use these angles to determine the index of refractio
Projectile Motion Part Two
To Calculate the Vertical launch velocity of a given object
In this lab, we will use an equation for a free fall with the acceleration due to gravity as
9.8 m/s. We will measure the vertical velocity of
Heat is a measure of how much thermal energy is transmitted from one
body to another. We cannot say a body has a certain amount of heat any more
than we can say a body has a certain amount of work. While both work and heat
can be measu

OBJECTIVE: The object of this lab is to determine the effects length and mass have on
where: T = period, l = length, and g = a gravitational constant

Gravity Drop Experiment
The point of this investigation is to see use the
gravity drop to measure the speed of the marble as
it falls. With the data we will be able to see how
gravity affects falling objects and their change i
FOCAL POINT LAB
To determine the focal length of a spherical convex lens
Lens formula method
Lens replacement method.
To compare both methods.
In this experiment, we have chosen two methods to find out the focal length of a
Energy has many forms (motion or heat), and it can travel in different ways ( as light, sound or electricity).
Everything depends on energy flowing from one place to another & changing from one form to anot

OBJECTIVE: After completing this experiment, you should be able to verify the
relationship between centripetal force, mass, and velocity in a whirling object.
