# 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:

• 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

# Velocity-Time Graphs

Before Class Preparation:

• Finish Non-Uniform motion handout (to be handed in)
• Print this worksheet
• Complete Part A (Remember these are Velocity-Time Graphs)

In Class Practice:

• conduct an inquiry into the uniform motion of an object
• solve problems involving uniform linear motion in one dimension using graphical analysis
• Using Motion Sensors to investigate v-t graphs
• PollEV Discussions

After Class Work:

• Read & take notes on this Powerpoint if you like taking notes
