They are counter-intuitive, and will need a great deal of practice to ensure they are used correctly.
Demonstration or Class practical: This activity demonstrates that inertia depends on mass and not on any other interpretation...
Demonstration: You can use the formula F = _ma_ to calibrate a forcemeter without using gravity.
Demonstration: You can use the formula F = ma to calibrate a forcemeter without using gravity. It is difficult to do with...
Demonstration: This experiment illustrates a fundamental point about the nature of measurement, as well as providing a way of...
Demonstration: A trolley experiences an acceleration when an external force is applied to it. The aim of this datalogging...
Demonstration: This provides an active way to vary measurement of distances, velocities and acceleration.
Demonstration: This demonstration is rather fussy to set up, but produces good results.
This detailed experiment involves measurement of acceleration.
Class practical: Students can quickly see that force and mass have opposite effects on acceleration.
Students will have discovered that: a constant force accelerates a given mass with constant acceleration; doubling the force...
The purpose of the activity is to provide a memorable event that offers the opportunity to talk about whether the resultant...
