View Resource Newton's Second Law of Motion

Authored by Cynthia D'Souza of the De La Salle Institute, this lab is intended to verify Newton's Second Law of motion by (a) subjecting a body to multiples of a force; (b) subjecting two bodies to the same force and qualitatively describing what happens; then quantitatively, the acceleration produced by a gentle ramp. Data is collected, analyzed and graphed. This appearance was this website...

View Resource Newtonian Mechanics

Created by David P. Stern this site consists of algebra-based material at the high-school level, oriented towards astronomy and spaceflight, which explores Newton's Laws and their application. Concepts are stressed such as vectors and applications, mass and inertia, frames of reference, and clarifying centripetal vs. centrifugal forces. This is part of a wider site "From Stargazers to...

View Resource Contemporary College Physics Simulation Library

This website includes a collection of introductory level physics simulations on topics including motion, sound, electricity, magnetism, optics, modern physics, relativity, Kepler's laws, spectroscopy and more. Each simulation includes instructions for use as well as an explanation of the physical concepts involved.

View Resource Science of Baseball

Exploratorium provides this web site that explores the science of baseball through shockwave activities. The lab exercises and articles enhance different aspects of the subject. Some pages include video clips in real video format. The page also includes activities such as throwing a curveball, finding the 'sweet spot,' the bounce of the ball and the force of a bat handle. Additional links are...

View Resource Newton's Laws

This page consists of a lists of activities relating to Newton's Laws. Created by David Willey at the University of Pittsburgh, these activities include a bowling ball pendulum, human air puck, a table cloth and crockery, a sewing hoop, an egg and a sheet and bicycle wheel gyroscope. This is a nice set on interactive lesson plans for physics instructors. Willey provides a brief description of...
