Physics with Vernier

This book contains 35 experiments in mechanics, sound, light, electricity, and magnetism.


Physics with Vernier has 35 experiments in mechanics, sound, light, electricity, and magnetism. This book has a wide variety of experiments for Motion Detectors, Force Sensors, Light Sensors, Magnetic Field Sensors, Microphones, Current & Voltage Probes, Photogates, Temperature Probes, and Accelerometers.

Features Include

  • Enhanced graphics
  • Experiments for more Vernier sensors and accessories (including Vernier Projectile Launcher and Optics Expansion Kit)
  • Improved Preliminary Questions to help get students thinking about the activity
  • Time estimates for each experiment
  • Improved instructor pages, including more equipment and data-collection tips, as well as new sample results

AP, IB, or University Physics

If you teach AP, IB, or college physics, you should also consider these books:

Included with Physics with Vernier

  • Complete student experiments with materials list, step-by-step instructions, data tables, and questions.
  • Teacher Information section for each experiment with complete directions for setting up experiments, helpful hints, and sample graphs and data.
  • Word-processing files of the student sections on a CD so that any experiment may be easily edited to your specifications (Microsoft Word for Macintosh and Windows files).
  • CD includes instructions to perform the experiments on every supported platform:
    • Computer
    • LabQuest in standalone mode
    • Calculator (EasyData and Datamate)

Features listed above are only available when you purchase the lab book. The downloadable evaluation PDFs include student instructions only.
