Laboratory: Drop and Bounce
Different matter responds differently to force. In this lab, you will explore the relationship between matter and energy by dropping objects made of different materials from different heights to see how high they bounce. You will be dropping these objects in a virtual lab setting where objects behave the same as they would in the real world.
Goals for the Lesson
Solve a problem using the scientific method.
Use the metric system in a scientific experiment.
Plot an independent variable against a dependent variable to make a graph. Use graphs to characterize how drop height responds to bounce height. Describe and predict physical interactions of m...
