Curve Ahead, Reduce Speed! Centripetal Force Demonstration Kit
 
Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff


Rounding a curve too fast on a bike or in a car can be dangerous! Determine the maximum speed an object can safely travel along a curved path under various conditions by analyzing the effects of the radius of a curve, banking the curve, and friction on the rotational motion of a plastic “car” on a turntable. Simple and practical demonstration will develop students’ understanding of centripetal force, speed, and acceleration and help them connect these concepts to everyday events.
 
Kit includes valuable teacher notes, complete instructions, and reproducible student handouts. Materials are completely reusable!
