Experiments

OpenSciEd 8.1 Contact Forces

  • Lesson 2: What causes changes in the motion and shape of colliding objects?
  • Lesson 4: How much do you have to push on any object to get it to deform (temporarily vs. permanently)?
  • Lesson 5: How does changing the mass or speed of a moving object before it collides with another object affect the forces on those objects during the collision?
  • Lesson 7: How much does doubling the speed or doubling the mass affect the kinetic energy of an object and the resulting damage that it can do in a collision?
  • Lesson 9: How do other contact forces from interactions with the air and the track cause energy transfers in the launcher system?
  • Lesson 12: What materials best reduce the peak forces in a collision?
  • Lesson 13: How (and why) does the structure of a cushioning material affect the peak forces produced in a collision?

OpenSciEd 8.3 Forces at a Distance

  • Lesson 7: How does changing the distance between two magnets affect the amount of energy transferred out of the field?
  • Lesson 10: How does distance affect the strength of force pairs in a magnetic field?
  • Lesson 11: What else determines the strength of the force pairs between two magnets in a magnetic field?
