Vernier Video Analysis: Conservation Laws and Forces


This e-book, Vernier Video Analysis: Conservation Laws and Forces explores mechanics topics beyond basic motion, such as conservation of energy and conservation of translational and angular momentum.

Education Levels

This e-book, Vernier Video Analysis: Conservation Laws and Forces features 12 investigations using the Vernier Video Analysis® app. It builds on basic concepts of motion and applies them to various sports (e.g., curling and weight lifting) and interactions between objects such as a physical pendulum and a cart. Real-world examples help students connect physics concepts to their lives, increasing engagement and knowledge retention. 

Student materials are provided in two levels of scaffolding: Guided and Abridged. The Guided materials provide step-by-step instructions for navigating the software and work well for students who have not used Vernier Video Analysis. The Abridged materials are appropriate for students who are familiar with the features of the software.
