 The Physics Classroom: Which Path Requires the Most Energy? Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this page features animations of carts traveling at constant speed on three inclines of equal distance but varying slopes. Students can observe how the variables of force and displacement affect the amount of work done by each cart. The question for students to consider is which path requires the most energy. This item is part of The Physics... http://www.physicsclassroom.com/mmedia/energy/au.cfm
 The Energy of a Bouncing Ball This item is a lesson plan for beginning high school physics and/or physical science. Students investigate energy transfer by placing a ping-pong ball on top of a racquetball and dropping them together. Upon impact, some of the energy of the racquetball is transferred to the smaller ball. Background information, printable data sheets, and assessments are also available. This lesson is part of... http://galileo.phys.virginia.edu/Education/outreach/8thGrade...
 Roller Coasters and Amusement Park Physics Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this resource provides explanations and animations that explore the physics of roller coasters. It is designed as a tutorial for either teacher or learner to be used in conjunction with a unit on amusement park physics. The author uses free-body diagrams and detailed discussion to show how the force of gravity and the normal force act upon the... http://www.physicsclassroom.com/Class/circles/U6L2b.cfm
 The Physics Classroom: Energy Transformation for Downhill Skiing Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this page features an animation of a skiier descending down a 58-meter slope. The first part of the animation depicts the changing ratio of potential-to-kinetic energy. At the end of the run, the skiier encounters unpacked snow and loses total mechanical energy to the dissipative force of friction. Bar graphs for W (Work) and TME (Total... http://www.physicsclassroom.com/mmedia/energy/se.cfm
 The Physics Classroom: Energy Transformation for a Pendulum Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this page is an animated tutorial featuring a simple pendulum attached to a pivot point by a string. The pendulum motion is accompanied by corresponding energy bar graphs for kinetic and potential energy. It is intended to allow users to visualize mechanical energy conservation, as they investigate why the tension force does no work on the... http://www.physicsclassroom.com/mmedia/energy/pe.cfm
