Multimeters, Breadboards, and Circuit
Assembly
Both capacitors and resistors are passive
circuit devices that are commonly used in electrical circuits. Thus, students need to

Circuit Wiring and Multimeter Measurements Pre-Lab Assignment
Next lab period your groups will be asked to construct circuits using a simple
breadboard. Thus, you will need to translate circuit diagrams into physical circuits.
Collisions in 1-Dimension and the
Conservation Laws Associated with such
Collisions1
Goals:
Students observe and correctly analyze
conservations of momentum and/or energy in
collisions between two carts on a track.
Students can differentiate elastic an
