Simulation Lab: Universal Law of Gravitation

Before Class Preparation:

In Class Activity:

  • Use this simulation to investigate the Universal Law of Gravitation
    • Design your own experiment and collect data
    • Use data and graph to determine the universal gravitation constant, G

After Class Work:

Newton’s 2nd Law Lab: Constant Applied Force

Before Class Preparation:

In Class Activity:

  • Newton’s 2nd law: Constant applied force
    • Data to be collected individually
  • Students could also be linearizing the simulation submission from the previous week

After Class Work:

  • In the Google Classroom:
    • Create an appropriate data table with Google sheets
    • Linearize the data
    • Create an appropriate scatter plot and add a trend line
    • Calculate the slope of the trend line
  • Braingenie

Linearizing Data (Exercise)

Before Class Preparation:

  • BYOD laptop or sign out a Chromebook
  • Make sure you have a completed & organized data table for BOTH Newton’s 2nd Law simulations in Google Classroom

In Class Activity:

  • Google Classroom Activity: “Linearization of Data Exercise”
  • Linearize and graph the Newton’s 2nd Law simulation data

After Class Practice:

Simulation Lab: Newton’s 2nd Law

Before Class Preparation:

  • BYOD Laptop or use chromebook provided
  • Read handouts posted in the Google Classroom
    • Newton’s Second Law Simulation 1 & 2 Lab
    • Complete Pre-Lab Google Forms in the Google Classroom
      • There are TWO pre-labs to complete!

In Class Activity:

  • Use this simulation to investigate Newton’s 2nd Law
    • There are 2 different labs using the same simulation

After Class Work:

  • Complete the data tables using Google Sheets
