written by Julien Sprott
This page contains procedures for setting up 20 demonstrations relating to motion. Designed for use in the introductory physics classroom, each demonstration is written in a lesson-plan format and has been fully tested in the classroom. The items were selected for inclusion because they are enjoyable, highly illustrative of key concepts taught in a classical mechanics course, and for simplicity of set-up. This resource is part of a larger collection by the same author.
This resource is part of 2 Physics Front Topical Units.
Topic: Kinematics: The Physics of Motion
Unit Title: Special Collections
This page contains procedures for setting up 20 demonstrations relating to motion. All demos have been fully tested in the classroom and were selected for inclusion because they are engaging, require minimal set-up, and are highly illustrative of key concepts taught in introductory classical mechanics. Historical anecdotes and commentary add to the depth of this unique resource.Link to Unit:
Topic: Dynamics: Forces and Motion
Unit Title: Applications of Newton's Laws
This resource directs teachers in the set-up of 20 engaging demonstrations relating to motion/mechanics. The materials include motion in one and two dimensions, coupled pendulum motion, rotational motion, and more. The author selected each demonstration for its "attention-getting" appeal and its ability to provoke thought about specific mechanical processes.Link to Unit:
