There is much opportunity for student investigation in this area. You will also need to consider the depth of treatment you...
Demonstration: The higher the viscosity of a liquid the more it resists motion of a body through it. The result can be very...
Class practical: An object falling through water reaches a constant terminal velocity after falling relatively small distances...
This episode starts by considering the forces acting on a falling body in air, and moves on to related experimental work.
Air resistance means that when dropped separately, the book and paper hit the ground at different times. But when they are...
It is air resistance that makes the paper fall slowly, and the coin pushes the air out of the way for both itself and the...
Frictional forces are a group of forces that affect movement. They can set things moving (as when you expect your shoe to grip...
Cracks in glass plates can travel at speeds from 1 m/s to 1,500 m/s depending on the length of the crack and the stresses in...
